Was there a weekend that just went by? I need another one. I am beat today! Rest day on tap with only walking. We actually had to turn our furnace on. The house got down to 62 degrees, so we caved in and turned it on. With the new windows we got last year, the sun doesn’t warm up the house because we got the e-glass for efficiency.
I made up some warm banana custard oats today topped with pecans and some really yummy apple butter I got from my jam swap partner!
Tasty and nice on a cold morning.
I hope I am officially done with the flat tires. This is not even close to a normal happening. I went 5 years with no flats, then I had 1 each of the last 2 years and now the crazy amount this year. Of course, I have put over 2500 miles on this bike since I got it last August, but I also learned to not use regular tires on my bike trainer in the winter. Using the trainer will cause the tire to become square and have problems. So, I saved the old tire to put on the back when the bike comes inside in a couple months. Or I can ride the trainer without the resistance wheel and just use my gears, which is more likely to happen because I really hate taking the tires off.
BBQ chicken and some organic grapes. I don’t usually go out of my way to buy organic fruit, but organic grapes were on sale for $1.99 a pound!!
Another beautiful day here. Good thing because after work I have to plant these:
More bulbs. I only got 33 bulbs this year. I was smart and mapped out my garden a couple weeks ago on graph paper and looked at my photos from the spring to see where I had bulbs and marked where space was available for new ones. I actually am on the ball this year! It only took me 5 years to to this…
Latte break. Giving my approval to John’s barista skilz.
On the work front, I decided to go ahead and buy the speech recognition software to do echo dictation rather than straight typing and see if I can save my hands and wrists. I have been having arthritis pains in my hands and since I type for 6.5 hours a day just for work (not counting blogging and emails and general stuff), I am trying to be proactive. I bought Dragon Naturally Speaking, so I am now training my Dragon to love me and my speech patterns.
I am going to try to have it write my blog posts starting tomorrow and hopefully be on board with work at the end of the week. There is a lot of medical terminology that Dragon needs help with (cholodochojejunostomy anyone?).
It’s actually pretty amazing at how accurate it is right out of the box.
I wasn’t sure what to have for dinner tonight, but as I went into the kitchen, John had the popcorn fish out and I knew that was what I wanted!
Then John and I took a nice long walk. Cool evening, but nice. Now it is time to work with Dragon and Monday Night Football!
Question: Do you purchase organic regularly?
