Bird tracks

Yay Friday!  Boy, this week went so fast. I got a lot of stuff done, though. It’s amazing when you don’t juggle multiple jobs how much you can accomplish  😀

It’s a slower time of year, so I spent a good chunk of time reorganizing our work area (basically the entire basement). It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and it feels good to actually get it finished — or somewhat finished anyway…

I did get a call from my old job wanting help with something. I knew that would happen since they waited so long to get replacements. They were asking me something about the software and setting it up for an initial user. I did that over a year ago, so I can’t remember what happened now. They called me twice to try to “jog my memory”  since I can no longer access the software and I finally said to call the manufacturer. Hello? They have the answers, not me.  Go away.

I tried a new yogurt this week. Noosa.  Have any of you tried it?

Normally I get plain Fage, so this was really sweet to me. I thought it was weird that the yogurt part was sweetened when it has a swirl of caramel. It didn’t need it.  It was a fun change, but I like my Fage and all it’s protein.

The temps have been all over the place this week, but I have been getting out for walks. Today was really cold, so I bundled up to walk:

This is my handknit scarf from Ireland, BTW. Very snuggly.

We got a dusting of snow last night and you could see perfect animal tracks everywhere. Birds are so light they usually don’t leave clear prints, but check these out!

Isn’t that cool? Like reptile feet.

I know some snow and icy weather is going to hit you southerners – so stay safe!

    I love seeing animal tracks like that! Like you said, it doesn’t happen often.

    Getting a work area organized always feels so good. I’ve got the studio partway done.

    Noosa–I’ve heard good things about it, but I think its pretty calorie-heavy? so I haven’t tried it.

      It’s somewhat calorie heavy in ratio to the protein. It’s 150 for that cup, but only 6 grams of protein.

    If work calls you again, quote them a consultant fee before agreeing to speak to them. 😉

    I don’t like sweet yogurt much anymore – I guess I’m too accustomed to plain Fage now. I’ve been tempted to try Noosa when I see an interesting flavor, and maybe I will, but sounds like I should use half Noosa and half plain Fage to make it work for me?

    Cute bird tracks! We are just plain freezing over here, but no precipitation, which is a good thing for us – we can’t handle it.

      Consulting fee – that sounds good!

      I think cutting the Noosa with Fage would work well. I should try that.

    So far I have been out for a walk every day this year. Even Saturday. We had some snow overnight and the roads were icy. Over 250 accidents before 10 am. But I did go out and if you walked on the snow, it ‘s was pretty good to walk on.

    Always feels great when you want to do something for a while and it’s finished.
