I thought about running this morning, but when I got up I just didn’t feel like it, so I lifted instead. Still out of day order on the lifting, but it’s all good!

Just kind of a light workout today to end up the year. I have gained some good strength back this year. Yippee! I came home to make some custard style cream of wheat!
I am really liking the Teddy peanut butter, although I hate having to measure it out. I think it really is less expensive to buy peanut butter and make the other nut butters myself. Think I will put making cashew butter on the agenda for this weekend.
The sun actually came out today :b That does wonders for the mood. It even feels pretty warm at 33 degrees. That is above the wincing level outside 😀
Work was slow in the morning, and there was a special farmer’s market today since the market won’t be open Saturday:
It has moved inside for the winter, so I decided to pop on over. I saw brussels on stalks!
I would have gotten one, but I don’t think I could eat the whole stalk before it went bad. So I just got a few loose ones, plus some parsnips and jerusalem artichoke! That is going to be a GVE next week. I haven’t done one of those in forever.
I took a work break for lunch. Egg wrap. You know there is hot sauce in there.
I really do like the Joseph’s pitas. Actually much better than flatout wraps, too! They are nice and soft and if you toast them, they get crispy instead of chewy.
I noticed today that Shape.com had put my article online in a story about 25 days of inspiration. I am day 16! Diane is also in this group. If only I could parlay all of this press into some extra money, I would be all set LOL! Hey, a girl has to be a capitalist sometimes…
I am doing good with this little bag of truffles. I have had 2 pieces out of this bag since Christmas, so it should last a while provided I don’t sleep eat. Moderation is something I can do if I put my mind to it.
Had to take this picture of Pixie sleeping today. If only I could bottle the cuteness that she exudes.
Sleeping in my lap while I was working. It’s nice having a personal warming unit for cold weather, too.
Cooked up said brussels for dinner along with some ground pork (BBQ style).
I am going to have to start rationing my cinnamon. We purchase it in 1-pound bags and we are almost out (the horror!!). I eat probably 2 tsp a day. Between that and hot sauce, I am not prissy with my condiments.
I have about another half hour of work tonight, then it’s J and L time at the coffee shop! A pseudo-date 😀
Question: Do farmer’s markets go year round near you?
