Cold spell coming in! I don’t know if it reached 40 today.
It was definitely a good day for protein pancakes!
Pixie had an exciting day today. John had a customer come to the shop today and they brought their dogs. The dogs were in the car with windows opened and they barked a fair amount. The car was parked right by Pixie’s viewing window and she was quite upset. So she moved to the kitchen window and stared them down.
She kept creeping back into the living room and then eventually slunk upstairs. Not a happy camper.
I thought about going out for a walk for exercise today, but I just couldn’t make myself go out in the cold . So, I went old school and pulled out a DVD.
I have sort of been thinking about a treadmill to change things up from just being on the bike trainer this winter, but I just don’t know if I want to haul a big piece of equipment upstairs, particularly since we have the stairs of death in our old house, meaning very narrow with short treads. Maybe if we move to a different house I would do it.
Can I confess here about one of my goal for the month to eat 2 veggies a day? I am so not feeling vegetables at. all. I don’t care for salads, especially now that it is cold (and don’t even mention spinach smoothies, please), but even eating my beloved broccoli hasn’t been appealing. At least I am getting in my fruit. I think it is the cold weather or something. All I feel like doing is getting under the fleece blanket and hibernating. I am feeling the cold terribly so far this year, and it is only mid November! What is up with that?
I actually did venture out into the cold tonight. John lured me with coffee. We made a stop at Lowe’s and I did more calculations on the table. If we want to do all oak, the table will cost hundreds of dollars to do – and at that cost, we may as well save the effort and buy one, right? So, I was looking for alternative wood, at least for the majority of the table. Now that I think we have decided on Douglas fir and probably maple for the insert, I think we are ready to purchase the wood. I am going to invest in a Kreg jig, though (which does pocket holes for screws). Anyway, I am sure you want to know all that, right? 🙄
After Lowe’s it was over to Panera Bread and a latte (decaf) by the fire.
Yes, I pulled my chair right up there and hogged the fireplace 😀 Well, really these 2 chairs are set up right by this, so I just scooched it a little closer. It’s a double-sided fireplace anyway.
I miss the fireplace we had in our old house, I have to say. At least I have my heated fleece. It’s going to be a long winter…
