Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Sunday to all (or Monday morning, likely).

Met my parents at Panera Bread so we could take them out for a  bagel for Mother’s Day.

Had a nice chat on this cold and blustery day!  Thanks for having me, Mom!  And thanks to my MIL for having John :mrgreen:

It looks like I have a black eye in this picture LOL!

Unfortunately, I had to work today (as per every Sunday).  At least it was busy.

I made a quick lunch of tuna salad.  Shared a pear with John today instead of eating the whole thing as usual 😀

I would have loved to take another ride today, but it is seriously cold out here.  I don’t even think it got to 50 and it is windy.  There is also a freeze warning for tonight and tomorrow night, so I have to cover up a whole bunch of plants!  Hello May – where are you??

I had a Kind bar for the first time.  They were on closeout at Hannaford for 89 cents each, so how could I pass them up?

Note how you have not seen protein or any other kind of bars on this blog since late February.  I gave them up cold turkey because I was starting to eat them like candy bars.  Not sure if this bar counts or not.  It was quite good.  I need to make my own.

With a latte:

Made with love, per John….

Been really trying to keep from snacking.  I had more than one cookie yesterday 😳   Here are the cupboards with what is currently out of reach for me:

That would be chocolate chips, peanuts, cashews, Kashi cereal, and Sun Chips.  It does work pretty well, surprisingly.

Dinner time!  Did someone say BBQ chicken salad?  Oh, it must have been me.

New birdie has come back to be on the feeder today.  This isn’t a picture I took because he flew away, but it’s a tufted titmouse.

I love my feeders.  They are very entertaining.

Evening sweet:

Plus some unpictured crackers.

Not much wise and wonderful to say today.  My mind is actually fairly calm for a change.  Need to bottle that.  I am hoping to have John’s maintenance post up early this week! I look forward to his answers.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I think it so cute that you put stuff “up”. I admire the fact that it works for you. It wouldn’t for me, I don’t think.

    Love the latte shot. It really is made with love. What a sweetie, your guy.

    Have a great week!

    Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.

    I recently tried the Kind Plus Protein and can’t buy them anymore because they are soooo good! and I can’t resist them lol. They remind me of peanut brittle.

    The Tufted Titmouse has got to be the cutest little bird ever. How lucky that you have one coming to your feeder. I wish.

    I’m going to have to try the bbq chicken salad one of these days. It looks so tasty.

    I love the Kind bars. Very dangerous, though. I made those homemade protein bars, but they are so good they are also hard to resist. I am eventually going to use that recipe as a base to try to make a bar that tastes good but is not quite as sweet or as many calories. Here’s the link if you want to look at it. I like that they are ‘raw’ easy and no cooking involved.

    Your mom and dad look lovely together. I don’t eat much of those bars, am not really fond of them although I’ve bought some lately which I can have around 3.30 pm on a running day so I have more energy for my run.

    Looks like a fun day! .89 cents for those bars is a great deal. I always snatch them up when I find them that cheap. It’s been cold here too, I wish Spring would come back!

    Great day with Mom! Good for you.
    We have bird feeders as well. ONe is attached to the kitchen window and a great big, fat blue jay keeps eating all the food then he knocks it down, the big beast. The other is about 4 feet away from the winder and has all sorts of birds landing on it. It’s also fun to watch the squirrels try to get at it. There have been times I see a little “rat” face peering into the kitchen as he hangs on the wall trying to muster up the courage to jump. HA! Jokes on him – they never make it. 🙂

    LOVE those pictures at the top! SO cute!!!

    Those pics of the food on top of the cupboard are hilarious. That Go Lean Crunch wouldn’t stand a chance around me. I’d probably hide a ladder or something to get up there 😛 Yay for being bar free!! Jeez, I didn’t even notice. I’m pretty much off them now too, I actually prefer my own now!
