I slept great last night! Probably because I took a Tylenol PM since my back was bothering me a touch. I think my disk will probably bother me forever, I guess. Interesting note, 5 months after herniating my disk and I still have skin numbness in my knee. I am beginning to think that is permanent as well, although it does not seem to affect anything I do, it just feels really weird.
We were up for biking to bagels this morning albeit a little slow 😀 I was hangry, too! Day after long bike ride usually = very hungry Lori.
Yum. Plus my 3 cups of coffee… yes indeed.
More relaxed work day today. I have officially moved down to part time with job #1 so that will get me more on an even keel. My life has been so backloaded with work for the last couple of months that I have felt a little out of whack. I hope to get some blog stuff updated as well. Another gentle reminder from John that I need to change my age to 42 in the sidebar…. 🙄
Lunch break on the porch. I held this up by the giant clematis 😀
I have pretty much finished the recipe compilation booklet. I will get a donate button on my site (amount will be up to the donor). All monies collected from it will go to my charity ride (and I will forward a copy to those that have donated already!). That took a while to do, I have to say. Compiling took forever. I cannot imagine writing a book from scratch unless that is all you did.
My butterfly visitor was back today:
Snack time (unpictured are some crackers I had):
Spent some time today moving furniture and removing window coverings in preparation for the installment of our new windows this week. It almost feels like we are moving. Thank goodness we aren’t. Don’t want to move again for a long time.
I cannot believe we are coming to the end of August already. School doesn’t start around here until after Labor Day, but people are gearing up. And do you know what we saw in the grocery store last night? Halloween candy! I picked up a bag of candy corn and just inhaled that sweet, sweet scent… Didn’t buy, though.
Dinner time! Went for extra protein.
Plus awesome baked sweet potato “chips”. These are great in the new convection toaster oven.
Flexing in work tonight and the Broncos are on prime time! While I still love my Broncos, the Saints keep stealing their way up in my heart.
We have been going through a ton of fruit lately. In fact we ran out as I didn’t have any pear to eat with yesterday’s ride! I guess I just eat a lot of it. I may as well do one of those fruit fasts LOL!
Don’t forget to comment on this post if you want an entry to win the book I’m With Fatty! And with that I will end this mish mash of a post 😀
Question: Does school start before or after Labor Day for your area?
