Wednesdays = long days. Not all of it bad, though. John and I have our usual breakfast out. We went to North Country Cafe and I saw that they had eggnog scones. Would *I* pass up the nog? I think not. Nice thing is, the scones here are not overly sweet. Since I detoxed sugar yesterday, I didn’t want to go overboard today.
The scone was good, but not quite what I was hoping for. It was moist (probably thanks to the nog), but need a rum or nutmeg flavor to it. Like a glaze! 😀
This cafe is by the library, where I got a call that this book I had reserved came in.
Debby – I finally got it! Now I need to find the time to read it. Although, I already am annoyed at a few pages that I flipped through as John drove home! LOL
Wednesdays are also the days I meet with my literacy learner. I can walk to the meeting place. We have to meet in public places, and the county building offers a room for use a couple times a week, which actually is kind of nice. It’s a touch over half a mile to get there, which gives me a nice 1 mile walk in the morning.
Tutoring is hard, I have to say. The thing with adult learners is that there are just holes in the learning and you don’t know where those holes are until you fall into them. I am finding my lesson plans aren’t good for doody once I get into the lesson, so some improvising has to take place. Tutoring is also tiring – surprisingly so. For both me and the learner!
All of this, of course, shoots my work day all to hell and I have to pretty much start at the beginning right after lunch.
Italian sausage. How is that for different? We were going to make some jambalaya this week with chicken and sausage, but have been too busy to make it. So, we are eating the components separately 😀 So much for actually trying to plan meals.
Dinner time came around and John cooked a sweet potato and we made chicken. Again, a component of the non-existent jambalaya! My potato had laughing cow spread on it and BBQ chicken.
Johns potato had butter and cinnamon on it with some sugar, I think. He thinks the way I make my potato is wrong. I decided I am not into the ‘sweet’ sweet potatoes.
Awesome news on the latte machine front – the frother works again!
This is an almond milk latte and my second of the day 😀 (although decaf).
One thing that makes me loyal is good customer service. I bought this machine from Seattle Coffee Gear after reading great reviews about them and their service. First off, it is way the heck across the country from me and they shipped super fast when I first got my machine.
Then I called today and got right with a support person, told them my machine and my problem and they walked me through the steps to take over the phone. Super, super knowledgeable people there. Turns out a little pinhole on the steamer wand was clogged and I just needed to clean it out. I was sooooo happy!
If you ever need anything espresso or coffee related, I highly recommend them!
Now I sit here happily drinking my almond milk latte and need to sign off and get back to work. Long night ahead of me 😀 – and I managed not to have any fudge today, either! Go Lori!! yes, it is decaf I am drinking…
