Bagel Day!

It’s Bagel Wednesday!  I was up too early and did some work before we biked to breakfast.   It was 57 degrees out, too!  Eeeek! That feels like fall biking weather.

It was a beautiful morning, even if it was cold.  The sun was breaking through the clouds when we got to Coffee Planet.



Shining the light on Burger King...

It smelled so good when we walked in because they just got done baking chocolate chip cookies for the day.  But, I decided not to have a cookie for breakfast 😀



I love our breakfast rides, cold or not.

We had some good news today on the house.  We had a plumbing/heating specialist come in to test our hot water heater and boiler for the heating system.  They both work and no leaks!  That was some much needed good news.  We will need a new boiler ($$$) in the next couple years, but we don’t need to get it yet.  Phew.  That was a huge relief.

News on the job front.  The new account I was on has kind of petered out since we got it caught up, so there has not been enough work for me.  I  was offered a position with another company.  I am going to test the waters with them part time and see how well we mesh, so I will be doing 2 jobs for a while.  Does anyone remember when I did that a few years ago?  Probably not.  Anyway, nothing like throwing in an extra challenge with all this house stuff.  I spent so long spinning my wheels this year and now it’s like the Indy 500.

Tonight was the last night of Take A Bite in Glens Falls.  We decided to stop by and have dinner before heading to work on the house.  Downtown is a mile from our new house, so we will be able to walk to this event next year!




I decided to get some Chicken Ya-Ya, which is kind of like gumbo.



Plus an unpictured cup of buffalo chicken soup (delicious!).

John got a fish sandwich and some peach cobbler for dessert.



Look at what was stamped on my money:



Spoiled my plans right there.  I decided to use it for my dessert which was a cup of coffee and a raspberry bar.


Total cost for my food? $7.  It was very crowded tonight, probably because it was the last night.  

We spent a few hours at the house making good progress.  I was on wallpaper duty…again… and finally feel like I am making some real headway.  Just about done with the nook room.  Might have the wallpaper all stripped from the kitchen by the end of the weekend!

Here’s to a good night’s sleep tonight.

Late nights mean my posts will be done later at night. Normally I like to get them done after dinner, but that’s not happening for a while since we leave the house right after.

    Looks like you have some serious busy times ahead. Working two jobs and renovating the house. The positive thing about is, is extra money which you can use I suppose 🙂

    Dinner looks delicious and when I look at the prices it is very cheap too. Win-win situation.

    As for the cold mornings, it is like Autumn here too and not just in the mornings but the entire day. It’s only August and although I don’t complain often about the weather, I do now, it’s really too cold for this time of year.

      It may not be extra work as I haven’t been getting enough with my first job, so it may be just the regular amount of work spread over 2 companies for a bit.

    You definitely have had a feast or famine type of year! But it seems that the feast times have been really good ones.

    Yum on your tasting dinner. I think I might have drooled a little when I read Mac and Cheese on that sign. I love Mac and Cheese.

    Our local fair does home-made peach cobbler. One of our favorite fair foods, but we didn’t get any this year. They peel the peaches at the booth, so its really fresh!

    Thinking of you as you begin the 2nd job part time. You go, girl!

    Lots on the plate for you – but all good stuff. Work has been stressful for you, so maybe this is the break you need? Is it doing the same medical transcription work you are doing for the other company?

    Love all the food – but I think that peach cobbler of John’s stole my heart. 🙂

      Yes, this is another medical transcription company. Hopefully it will be good and I can transition over there permanently.
