It was pretty chatty at the gym today. 4 people asked me if I was missing riding my bike. LOL. That’s cause I drove this morning. I didn’t want to have to unhook the bike again and lug it down the stairs <—- lazy.

Nice, eh? Felt pretty good. I did pushups for the first time in a few weeks. I can’t quite go all the way down, but better than not doing them at all. Not that I don’t love the chest presses, but I was tired of just being able to do those. Pain in the shoulder is just mostly soreness now – yippee!
Came home craving the pumpkin! I made pumpkin custard oats today:
Topped with crystallized ginger and pecans. You will be seeing pumpkin a lot this week as we have a bunch to use up.
Have a busy week going on with the 2 jobs and I have a large soap order to make. I am thinking I might start up the soap biz again, but I am still trying to talk myself out of that a little bit.
Lunch time included egg salad! I haven’t had this in a while.
Normally people open up and stuff pitas. I just folded the whole thing over my egg salad. Again <—– lazy. (And is that sandwich grinning at me??)
No files for job #2 as the doctors had meetings all morning. We never know when this is going to happen until there is no work. It then gets all batched over at night, so guess what I will be doing later? That meant some soapmaking happened during the afternoon. Gotta be flexible if need be.
Peppermint, Citrus, and Sandalwood
The house smells quite good right now.
John brewed up some lattes for us when I finished, which I paired with a couple dark mint cups.
While waiting for more work, I decided to hop on the bike trainer for 45 minutes. I am going to seriously love that this winter. We don’t have a treadmill, so it is a nice way to get in quick cardio. Happy purchaser!
The day has flown by and it was time to fix dinner. Can I advise you not to buy a product? These are evil!
John had these down while I was cooking dinner. See my nice fresh salad bowl there by the picture? Guess which I was eating? These chocolate PB bugles are ah-mazing. Can’t be bringing these into the house very often (damn coupon). Do you ever taste something and know immediately it will be a red light food?
I didn’t eat a ton, and thank goodness John put that back up out of reach!
Then dinner was ready. I took a picture on our bamboo cutting board for some different background:
BBQ chicken salad. Used up the last of the BBQ sauce, so I guess I will only have this once this week. 😀
I have a couple of hours of work ahead of me tonight, so I have my snack next to me ready to eat when I get hungry:
Hello Mr. Bartlett! I may cut this up and put cinnamon on it if I feel like getting up from work <—– lazy.
