Bagels and sprouts!

It’s Wednesday, or Bagel Day at casa Finding Radiance.  Both John and I rode the bike trainers before breakfast today.  Usually I ride in the morning and he rides in the evenings, but he happened to be up.  I got in 10 miles in 41 minutes this morning.

Then it was time to hit Orange Cat for breakfast.  They were out of my blueberry bagel – wahhh!  But I did have cinnamon raisin:

Love these signs:

We spent a nice morning chatting as well.  Lots of decisions to be made around here.

Lookie what I found growing!

Sprouts!  So happy to see these. Happy enough that John proclaimed me a geek. These are my snapdragons.  They sprouted much sooner than expected.  Obviously I need to cull, but the seeds are smaller than poppyseeds and hard not to get too many in there.  I need to winnow these down to 36 plants.  I will plant some other seeds this week.  Grow strong little seedlings!

Lunch break included some of the new SeaPak Popcorn Fish.

You must find these!  They are made from chunks of fish, not pressed and formed minced fish.  You know I am not a big fish lover, so me really liking these says something.  Maybe it is the hot sauce, though. :mrgreen:

Update on the half bath.  Our washer is now disconnected and pipes cut, so that means laundry down the street.

Here is the scary hole I put in the floor:

Crew forekitty is inspecting the job.  This is where the toilet drain is going to go.  We are running pipe underneath, which means we have to go down in this hole! 😯 😯 😯

The framing around the pantry area:

I am standing in the area that will be closed off for the bath. Don’t laugh that the shelves are still in there.  We just need to work this way for now.  John did most of the framing.  I cut a hole in the floor and then was doing wall repair.

Enjoying the process so far!  The most awesome thing about this project to date is that John rooted out some old work pants and found his wedding ring in the pocket that has been lost for almost 2 years!  Now we match again.

Wonder twin powers – activate! (anyone else remember that?)

Latte time.  Showing John doing his husbandly duty instead of the finished product 😀

With a new item.

These are Special Dark buttons.  Found them at K-Mart last night.  They are like M&Ms, only with a crispier coating.

I might have had more of these…with some peanuts… 😳

Dinner time included some cooked chicken and broccoli with some coconut rice.  I am testing a recipe for someone’s Iphone app, otherwise I would share it right now.


John is out for poker, so I have some soap to finish up, seed planting, and some walls to work on.  I sure know how to have fun!  Here is some red clover tea that I made today:

    That rice looks tasty. I’ve never heard of coconut rice.

    I have a black thumb. We want to have a garden this year and have grand plans for doing so but I am so not motivated to start it. Nothing ever grows for me!

    I have not seen anything sprouting just yet, but I am looking forward to it.

    I LOVE THAT JOHN FOUND HIS RING!!! That gave me the goosebumps of happiness.

    All that work looks really hard. You guys are Wonder Twins!!!

    In central Missouri my yellow crocus are blooming. I’m not sure why they always bloom before the purple ones. I also have daffodil and hyacinths just starting to poke through the ground. Come on SPRING!

    Cinnamon raisin! Now you’ve got my attention! That smells SO GOOD when someone is toasting it in the breakroom! Still amazed at your construction capabilities, and laughing at Pixie. I’m having a late afternoon coffee in honor of you while I read your post.

    The wedding ring find gave me chills. That is so AWESOME!! Construction looks like it is coming a long well. I still look at your bagels longingly promising myself that today will be the day. Soon!! 🙂

    I love your inspector! That’s something Bella would do too 🙂

    You both must be happy that John found his ring back, especially since it’s your wedding ring.

    My sister and I have matching Mickey Mouse watches and we do “Wonder Twins Power Activate” all the time! I left home with my daffodils in bloom. My azaleas should be popping just in time for my homecoming.

    Love Pixie the Crew Chief! I don’t have anything sprouting, but that reminds me that I was going to try my hand at growing my own sprouts for salads and such. Task for the weekend!

    If I do buy a house, I wish I could have you down to give a hand with the reno! Looks like you are a pro 🙂

    Pixie looks to be not too happy with that hole OR she is looking for mice! 🙂 I can’t believe you two are doing that on your own. Amazing!

    So cool you found John’s ring! He can’t get away now! 😉

    Well, like home stuff, I am bad at the garden stuff too. I can kill a cactus! I will leave all this up to you since you are good at it!

    How wonderful that John found his ring! I know it’s just a “thing” and that you always had each other, but still… 🙂

    Lots of stuff coming up here, some of it already in bloom: daffodils, forsythia, south-facing hibiscus, and so on. I’m hopeful that Spring is actually going to return.

    I am so not a gardner. I would not even know that the sprouts needed to be culled. Sigh.

    I am definitely a hopeless romantic because the thing that made me happiest in this post is that John found his wedding ring! <3 <3 <3

    The remodel looks fabulous! It’s really moving along. And might I say how temptingly tasty that bagel looks? Mmm…

    It is wonderful that John found his ring, ilove the band design you both chose. And yes, now you match again 🙂

    I have a twin sister, and at least four or five times a week we call each other at the same time – we always say “twin powers activate!”

    Hooray for John finding his ring! I wish I was as handy as you, but I’ve been fired from painting. 🙁

    So cool about the ring! Sadly everything I know about the Wonder Twins is from an episode of Family Guy.

    Something purple was blooming at my MILs Sunday but I am clueless as to what it was. I’m not good with plants.
