Lots of rain last night. What is up with rain in January? My garden is going to struggle this winter, I think. Rain is not good for gardens in this climate as the roots will rot. They need to be frozen and under a blanket of insulating snow. Guess that will be an excuse to buy more plants this spring! I headed out in some foggy weather to the gym.

Then treadmill walking. This was one of those days where I felt huge at the gym. You know those days? When the little women are there jumping around. Even though they are much taller than me, I still feel like a behemoth around them. Ugh. Of course, I could kick their asses if need be, I am sure. I’ll just be smug about that LOL!
Breakfast time was oatmeal! I just cooked some oats and whisked in egg whites. Now for a topping that looks like something it isn’t.
This is coconut butter with a spoon of lemon curd! It either looks like a sunny side up egg or that I opened up a Cadbury Cream Egg on my oats
It’s been busy at work. At least on my accounts. We got an email from Disney today:
You’re almost here!
The Vaughn Party Walt Disney World® vacation is just a few days away! Here are some last-minute tips and info to help you make sure everything’s running on time. We look forward to seeing you again real soon!
(Yeah, it has John’s last name on there since he booked the trip – even though I paid for it – I’ll set aside my feminist nature for a minute on that one.) One thing I love about Disney is that they treat you right. Everything has the guest in mind and one reason I just love staying on the property and letting them take care of everything! I cannot wait for vacation! John and I did not go on a vacation all last year, so we deserve some time off.
Lunchtime and I had one of my Trader Joe’s items.
This little portion is 250 calories, which is annoying, but it is pretty good. I need to try making my own paneer because we don’t have any stores here in tiny town that carry it.
Pixie was my lap partner today. Like that is anything new.
It was a warmer day today, but still a good day for a latte.
I cannot even tell you how happy I am that my eyes are normal now! I am hoping that the redness won’t return with the end of the eye drops. We still don’t know what caused the reaction, but maybe it was transient (fingers crossed).
John was out in the late afternoon with his math learner and asked me to meet him down the street for a slice of pizza for dinner when he finished. It was a nice night for a walk!
Hawaiian pizza. With my date.
Now settling in for some Downton Abbey tonight after I do my literacy lesson plan. I caught a bit of this on PBS a couple weeks ago and now have it in my Netflix instant queue to watch. It’s a good show and I just love the setting! With snack:
Chocolate covered almonds.
