Dang these weekends go by fast! And how many of you could see the moon?
It was soooo bright! I took this at a little before 6 am.
We spent Sunday early morning at Panera for breakfast (later than 6am, though).
We were up early. I was up at 5 am on a Sunday. How sad is that? I know it is because I didn’t make the best food choices on Saturday (too much chocolate) and I have found that I sleep poorly on those nights with constant waking and overheated. You would think that is incentive enough to not do that, right?
We then went to our home away from home (aka Home Depot) to pick up this weeks’ workings for the half bath. We should be able to have the inspector come this week to laugh at us and tell us to start over check out our plumbing.
Made up some lunch. I did some coconut flour bread, which I will post the recipe for this week. Kind of like a cornbread biscuit, really.
Plus buffalo style chicken breast with just a drizzle of blue cheese dressing on it. I am almost out of hot sauce!
Yesterday brought a new addition for our home that was kind of spur of the moment. A little background here: John and I both have music degrees, but we don’t play our original instruments anymore. John started playing piano a few years ago with an electronic keyboard. (We were going to wait until we moved into what will someday be our permanent home to get a real piano.) He then bought a very nice full span electronic keyboard, which started having issues one year after buying it. He contacted the company and they replaced the keyboard, and the same thing started happening with the new one. Obviously a defect in manufacturing. Now the company is of little help. Lame.
So, he stopped playing. He really misses it and especially with me playing the guitar a lot, he was going to buy a new keyboard for $300. Well, I figured why not get an upright to have in the house, as many of them are for sale for not too much used. I checked out on Craigs List and sent John some links. Lo and behold – there was a baby grand piano for $200 a few towns away. Friday we contacted the guy and looked at it yesterday.
It needs a serious tuning, but it is in awesome shape and a complete steal at $200! Even with the cost of moving it will be awesome and John can play. The man who owned it needs to room and just wanted to recoup his costs to move this piano. What a deal!
Now we just need to get the piano movers out to retrieve it. My real ulterior motive for getting this is that whenever we do move out of our current house, we will now have to pay for movers to do everything instead of doing U-Haul and doing it ourselves like we have always done in the past (which I keep saying I will never do again).
Latte love this afternoon:
Almond milk. I use the unsweetened, plain almond milk. I added some whey protein and it almost tasted like milk that way. I have sort of thought about trying a dairy-free challenge just for kicks, but I don’t know.
Dinner time! These are apple chicken sausages that are quite good.
Tonight is some relaxing! We can’t do much more in the half bath until the inspector gives us the okay, so we can goof around now
Did you do anything spontaneous this weekend?
