First off – a big hello to all the new Girl-Hero readers that have visited in the last couple of days. I was honored to be asked by Jenn at Girl Heroes to do a feature on me. You can view the article online here. Please feel free to email or leave a comment if you are new. I promise I don’t bite very hard 😀
I got up to ride the trainer this morning and will save the weights for Friday. The snow stopped and the streets are all clear now. It’s actually sunny and pretty:
We only ended up with about maybe a foot. It varied a lot around the area. I think being before the mountains buffered us a little bit. Now that the roads are clear, it was time to make up bagel day!
Wheat bagel with some coffee. It was so good, although the cafe was on the cold side. I sure missed my bagel yesterday.
We came home and cleared the last inch or so out of the driveway that came overnight. We have a very loooooong driveway. Probably 100 feet.
See how there is no place to put the snow? If we get a lot of snow that doesn’t melt, our driveway looks like a bobsled chute by the end of the season.
I know I owe you all a review of the Geneen Roth book, but I might have to wait until this weekend. My mind has been preoccupied with the job situation the last few days.
Lunch time brought about one that I had earlier in the week because it was good with John’s muffin:
This was just regular low-fat vanilla yogurt, though, and not my Greek. Not only did I steal half of John’s muffin, but I took some of his yogurt, too! Such a good wife 😀
I put out some feelers today with transcription companies and taking their tests. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people looking for work and not a lot of jobs, as with any industry. My other part time job does not have any other accounts to put me on, so I have to try to make full time with the one I have if I can. With having this other PT job, I also can’t get unemployment from losing the first- so I hope it works out. Well, it will work out – I just don’t know how yet
It is such a good thing that coffee is a legal drug or I would be so on the dark side.
I rode the bike trainer some more in the afternoon and got some guitar playing done. So maybe I will sound decent on video in December LOL!
Orange superfood for dinner – sweet potatoes! I made thick slices and dusted with cinnamon, then I baked them in the toaster oven for 35 minutes (flipping once). Served with chicken and a pear.
I think I like the sweet potatoes better as these thicker slices, even though they take longer to cook.
I would have like some M&Ms, but John has hidden those really well 😀
I am back to work tonight. At least there is some available, so I am thankful for that.
Question: How do you cook sweet potatoes?
