Monday: I had a short morning job with an economist. Good times. Jake had to take the MARTA to the airport. I’m not too broken up about that.
Tuesday and Wednesday: I worked all day. I hate when that happens.
Wednesday is weigh-in day and I’m sorry to report that there was no loss this week. But never fear. I am one of those crazies that get on the scale every day; so I know there was some fluctuation down the past couple of days. I am not ready to trade in Candice Kumai just yet.
Thursday: My first day off in 12 days. There’s nothing like drinking a latte on my own couch. The rest of the day is a blur; it took the whole day to recover from Tuesday and Wednesday.
Friday: I had a 1:00 downtown at the courthouse. You know what that means? That means a latte two days in a row.
I made this Kale and Fennel Caesar from Cook Yourself Sexy.
Yeah. It was pretty gross. I’m not a fan of Caesar salads to begin with. I can tell you right off that that sardine was only on the plate for the picture. I like to think I’m culinarily adventurous, but I just couldn’t do it. Maybe I should have chopped it up.
I finally watched The Blind Side. It only took three years for it to get to the top of my Netflix queue. I didn’t actually cry, but it was touching for sure.
Saturday: I went to World Market today. I feel that I should go to some sort of meeting and confess that I bought some Christmas ornaments.
I also made some Faux Peanut Butter-Banana Ice Cream from — guess where — Cook Yourself Sexy, which I always want to call Crazy Sexy Cool.
This is faux because it’s made with frozen bananas and a little bit of almond milk. Fine by me.
I also watched My Week with Marilyn. It was good, but I was more intrigued by the Vivien Leigh portion.
Sunday: I went on the hunt for dried rose petals today. Williams-Sonoma? Nope. Fresh Market? Nada. Whole Foods? None. Trader Joe’s? Negatory. BUT the guy at the check-out suggested an Asian market. Uh, maybe like the International Farmers Market right down the street from my house.
Good Deed of the Week: Be kind to yourself. Seriously? When are these deeds going to start to be challenging? My whole existence is predicated on being kind to myself. If it makes me sound any better I usually encourage other people to do the same for themselves.
Eat Well and Savor.
