Happy Easter for those that celebrate 😀
**picture heavy post coming up**
Saturday was dreary and rainy – so that meant renovations! We are just trucking along right now. Floor tiling is all done:
Still need to grout. Nice change from this:
Even without the grout it is sooooo much better!
New lighting fixture that worked the first time we put it up there.
Painting is done in the pantry room. All this room needs is the wall backsplash and doors for the pantry!
We purchased the sink and terlet for the bathroom. It’s one of the eco friendly ones that has 2 different flushes for less water usage. Yay!
We were a little worried about clearance space for the back toilet tank as our plumbing moved a bit during final installation, so we were sweating a little bit. This isn’t exactly where it is going, but close. I can taste the end of the project!
Food was spot on for Saturday. I’m in the zone now, which I will take and ride for as long as it lasts!
Sunday morning the rain broke and the temps were warm enough at 48 degrees to ride to bagels!
I did run over a broken beer bottle about a mile in and ended up with this:
Fast flat. Sigh. We patched it and kept going. It did delay us quite a bit and I was about bonking by the time we got to Panera Bread! If I had known I was going to get a flat, I would have eaten a bigger snack.
We take the main roads on Sunday rather than the path because it is quiet on Sundays and quicker to get to breakfast that way.
Unfortunately, they are building a Walmart on this road, so that might impact our riding on it anymore. There probably will be too much traffic.
The ride home was really fast without having the flat and a nice tailwind to boot!
16 miles round trip.
My Easter treat today?
I can’t have these in the house as these are my very, very favorite candy. Any chocolate/PB combo. I bought a single egg so I wouldn’t even have the 6-pack in the house. It was really good!
My parents invited the family to dinner on Sunday.
Guess who brought the big bowl of fruit?
I also brought the coconut bread biscuits, but I think only my dad liked them besides John and I.
Yum! We had dessert later. There was a vanilla cake with frosting.
I did not have any cake, but I ate a bunch of the little malted eggs. I like those. I did have some ice cream and coffee.
I would give myself a C for eating today. A few too many nuts and the malted eggs, but I am not stuffed, which feels great!
Came home to Pixie all snuggled into pillows.
She’s so cute!
Now for a nice relaxing evening!
Question: What was the best thing you ate this weekend?
