It’s a cloudy day here today. It’s funny knowing that these clouds are part of the system dumping snow all over NYC just 6 hours south. Usually it’s the opposite where we get snow here and rain or nothing down there. Hope all of you in the snow zone are safely tucked inside!
Went to a different bagel spot today. We got irritated by the service there a few months ago and hadn’t been back, but decided to give them another try. I had an energy bagel (which is multigrain with dates and nuts).
Too much cream cheese! We scrapped off a good 4 ounces of cream cheese between the 2 of us and just brought that home. They also raised the prices on the bagels. Service was fine, but I think we will stick with our other 2 places.
I found this link on youtube about advertising and thinness and it is a little scary:
I worry about young girls (and even grown women) who feel the need to hold themselves to ideals that are only available to 2% of the population (and that 2% also “needs” airbrushing). How do we stop the advertisers from telling us what to do and how to look? Is it as simple as not buying a product? Do we need to speak out with a unified voice directly to the companies? I don’t know the answer, but it concerns me.
What are your thoughts on this video?
Break from work was tuna salad with chips and another tart kiwi!
I know some people eat the skin on kiwis, but the hairiness grosses me out. I don’t like fuzzy peach skin either, so there is no way I could stomach the kiwi skin. I do like the innards, though!
Afternoon latte snack time! With a homemade granola bar:
I love that John cooks a lot. It’s nice to be working and smell good things coming from the kitchen 😀 He made up some venison chili for dinner with some of the ground venison my tenant brought me.
Almost like chili soup, but tasty. At least sunsets will start being later soon and I can get rid of the yellow hue on my dinner pics LOL!
Ornament of the day:
A little tuba player for John! Do you know how hard it is to find tuba ornaments? I think we have a ratio of 10:1 with horn and tuba on the tree
One day of work down already! Woo Hoo! Going to do an exercise video and possibly make some cookies, but I might hold off on that for sanity’s sake. I can eat cookie dough like there is no tomorrow!
