Say no to the nuts, Lori

I conked out way early last night.  We both did, actually.  I woke up at my usual time (which meant more sleep – yay!). John did not like waking up when I normally get up  😈

It was a drizzly and gray morning.  We headed on out for bagels:

I have a nice broken blood vessel in my eye, too.  One of those that take forever to go away.  Makes it look like I really tied one on, you know?  😳

I am smiling because this was waiting for me!

I was supposed to meet with my literacy learner today, but he didn’t show up.  He called a half hour later that he just woke up (this was at 11 am).  He has done this before and is late every other time, which is really getting frustrating.  I thought the last time we met and talked about this that it would get better, but it hasn’t.  I need to talk to our volunteer coordinator about it.

That got me wanting to snack. Isn’t that funny?  Well, not haha funny anyway.  I ate some nuts while making lunch.

Leftover chicken with laughing cow and BBQ sauce.  I need to up the ante on my food pictures.  They need to be more exciting if I am going to post them.

Luckily the doctors for work were the good dictators, so I was able to make up good time that was wasted waiting for my literacy person to show up.  Someone wasting my time is probably my biggest pet peeve of all.

Afternoon break of an almond milk latte and a couple egg nog almonds.

John asked if I wanted pizza for dinner, which would have been nice, but

a) I didn’t want to walk in the wind and cold for dinner having already walked in it earlier.

b) I had my quota of bread with a bagel.

c) I have to take John out for football dinner probably tomorrow anyway.

So, he actually walked down to get a couple slices and I made up some popcorn fish.  I also snacked on cashews while waiting.  Too many cashews.

I have a pretty good relationship with food most times, but sometimes I do not with a particular food.  I guess right now it must be nuts.  I haven’t even wanted a cookie, even though they have been on the counter for days.  Just no appetite for them at all.  The nuts?  I can’t keep my hand out of them today.  I can’t figure out why, either.  It’s frustrating.  I may have to banish nuts for a little while from the house.   At least the candied pecans are out of the house.  John took them to poker – along with the remaining cookies!  :mrgreen:

And lastly – Another guitar piece. This is a short one from memory.

I am smiling near the end because my sister and I goofed around with this song and I can’t get through it without kind of cracking up.  Plus I was glad to actually get through it with minimal mistakes after about 10 takes LOL!

    I am about to conk out way early tonight…back to work is rough!

    Hope everything works out with your learner…it is hard to feel like your time is being wasted.

    Another great guitar solo, you cracking up had me giggling too. Love your smile at the end.

    I said “no” to buying my regular trail mix tonight – since I haven’t been disciplined with it. It was for the best. When I am disciplined about it again, I will buy it again.
    I did want to buy icecream or “something yummy” tonight – Ugh – I get one good day under my belt and I want a “treat”. Ugh. Ugh. (I didn’t have a treat. Yah me!)

    I hate it when people are late. I’m always on time, if I expect that it’s going to be busy on the roads I leave earlier. Personally I think being late is inpolite.

    Great video of you playing the guitar. Love the smile at the end.

    I started laughing the minute I read the title of this post as I just said to Mr. Helen last night, “I have a pecan problem (mine are roasted and sea salted). They must be removed from the house!” 😀

    Not sure why but I do feel like I’m having a harder time than usual not wanting to be snacky all the time this week.

    I tried some eggnog almonds at a holiday thing – YUM! Made them take them away from me! 😉

    Lori, I love how you smile & your expressions when you play the guitar – really really great!!! You done good!!!

    Hope the eye is better sooner rather than later…

    Beautiful music! Bummer about your eye, hope it heals quickly for you. Sometimes I think nuts should be considered a controlled substance!

    I try to be early for everything-I hate to be late for any kind of appointment. It’s so rude and disrespectful of someone else’s time.

    I wouldn’t mind the recipe for those sugared nuts… Ok on second thought, that’s probably a bad idea.

    Been looking at getting a new bike. Can you direct me to your post on what you looked for? Mine is 9 years old and puts way too much strain on my arms/shoulders. They are so pricey I want to make a good decision!

    My mom gave me a bag of Hershey’s Kisses with macadamia nuts inside of them for Xmas. She brought them home from Hawaii. These things need to be taken OUT of my house! I cannot stop eating them.

    Hi Lori. LOVE the guitar playing!!! You are a very talented woman!!!!! We are lucky to have watched you play. I’m Grr’ing on your behalf for the literacy learner. So rude and disrespectful of the time and effort you are putting in to help!! Have a wonderful Thursday.

    I really enjoy hearing your guitar music! Beautiful
    I was also going to ask for the recipe for the nuts and then thought not a chance I know I’d eat them all before I’d share any 🙂

    Very nicely played and you can tell how much you enjoy it!

    As for taking more interesting pictures, I for one don’t need them. I just like to get up and have my coffee and see that the world is still spinning and that you are still blogging away. I don’t think people looking at your site are turned off by the sameness of the days. We all live that way. It is just plain inspiring to see you keep on a plan you have devised and stay fit, healthy and active and deal with excesses. By the way, I was drawn to your website because I had that same huge mickey mouse t-shirt and wore it to death (feeling I looked thinner ha-ha). Keep up the great work. PS: I’m a sped teacher and sometimes people don’t show up due to fear or other struggles but you can’t help everyone – some just won’t let you.

    Loved the guitar solo, and especially your smile at the end. Thank you for sharing that with us.

    Sometimes I start eating nuts because they are a healthy alternative to the cookies. But then I get carried away with the nuts…
