Finally coming up for air.
I love the feedback we are getting from the AIM posts! If you have any topic you want us to give our thoughts on, please share. It’s good to see how similar and yet different our views are on the same topic.
Bagel Wednesday! It will be a while before biking to breakfast yet:
Soon, though… soon.
It’s been hectic around here with work, plus I am doing another soap order for a customer. She orders infrequently and it is always a large order. Bye-bye dining room table for a week and general mess making.
This is about half of the order. Each of these logs cuts into about 20 bars of soap. It does make the house smell good, though.
Lunch was some mac and cheese that John made on Monday. We used Alton Brown’s stovetop mac and cheese recipe. This was on the menu plan for this week, as per monthly goal.
There wasn’t a lot, so I actually had half a protein bar after this.
On the fun front, my bathroom remodel has been entered into This Old House contest for reader remodels! You can see the pics here. Unfortunately, it is open to contractor work and DIY, so there is a lot of competition. At least it is divided into separate rooms and not lumping all remodels in one category. I don’t hold much hope, but you can’t win if you don’t enter, right?
Work was a little slow, so I got a lot of walking in today. Almost 40 degrees out, but somewhat breezy, so it felt colder. Paycheck deposited and extra walking to the tune of 3.5 miles today!
I was glad to have this when I got back inside:
We ended up going out for a quick dinner tonight. I’ve been cooped up doing this soap order all week and John will be out the next 2 nights, so we decided to go out. We hit up Dickies
I had the baked potato with barbecue. These things are like footballs and I probably ate about a third of the potato (all of the meat, though). Wish places would serve normal portions.
They had a coloring contest going on and these were adorable.
We stopped to pick up kitty litter and a new laser pointer toy for Pixie. Those things break easily, probably because I buy the cheap ones…
Anyway, I have to go back to work tonight and it is going to be a long one. At least I can change into jammies and do the work.
