Thank you for your comments on my Team Challenge ride! I need to figure out how to put a donate button or something on this site, but the page you can do it from is here, and click on the support button to the right. It will be a bit different from our longer rides we take here because I can’t be dawdling over lunch or yogurt during the ride LOL!
I was thinking about going for a run this morning, but my legs felt a little sore and I realize that I have not had a good solid rest day in a while. Just walking for me today. Sometimes I feel the need to go,go,go with the exercise or that I have to fit in X number of runs/lifting/biking sessions in a week. Not sure why that is.
Anyhoo, I made up protein pancakes today! Not in waffle form for a change up. 😀
Then I sat down and got right to work. I like starting early because I usually finish early. Last night I chose to read and not work. Good choice! The book is good so far. I think I will finish it. I used to finish books no matter what, but John said to me a few months ago “Life is too short to read bad fiction.” He is so right. There are so many good books out there that I don’t have to finish the bad ones (bad to me, at any rate). A book has to catch me in the beginning now for me to want to continue.
Since I ate breakfast so early, I needed a mid morning snack:
This was m’eh. I like mint dark chocolate way better.
Lunch time included some fresh baked bread from the 5 minute bread cookbook. Easy stuff when you don’t have to knead. It’s just a matter of waiting.
Last of the pomegranate jelly. I need to make some jam. I like jams better than jellies because they are thicker with fruit and not so sweet. This pic is for you Jody!
I have started working on the cookbook and boy howdy! It is going to be kinda long. The oatmeal section alone takes up several pages LOL! (surprised? I didn’t think so). I may have to take a couple vacation days just to work on it. I am trying to decide whether to keep it in word format or PDF.
The heat and humidity are on again here. Pixie just stretches out to try to keep cool. Glad I don’t have that much hair:
Afternoon snack and I still had a hot latte. Why I can drink hot drinks when it is in the upper 80s, I don’t know.
Plus a couple squares of Lindt Intense Orange:
Damn good stuff, I tell you.
Work slowed down with both jobs this afternoon, so I was able to get in my walk before dinner tonight. I just have a wee bit to finish up later.
It’s the return of the BBQ chicken salad!
Almost out of chicken. All meat, actually, so a trip to the smokehouse is in order.
Tonight I need to wrap John’s bday gifts and water the garden and work on the cookbook! One step at a time, though. 😀
I’ll be back tomorrow with the lifting move of the week!
Question: Do you like jam or jelly better?
