Hi guys! Umph what a rough night of sleep I had thanks to over indulging in wine. I didn’t have a ton but enough that it affected my sleep. I finished my first glass on the couch with my book while Scott wrapped up some work. Then I had another wee glass which was plenty. But it went to my head and I thought, “Oh just another small glass.” And then cue crappy sleep. I get hot, my heart races, my mind races, and I just have trouble staying asleep. Early bedtime for me tonight!
I got up at 7ish this morning because Monday’s are my day “off” so I can sleep in a little bit. I got Rocky taken care of and then I made some breakfast. I almost made oats but changed my mind at the last minute and had yogurt and granola instead.
With morning coffee. 2% Fage, bare naked chocolate granola (trying to use it up!), and some cranberries. So good, I love it! And I could go for more right now. :p Coffee was just okay. It was a little potent but that’s just because I’m coming off a night of horrible sleep.
I know this will sound odd but I’m starting to love Mondays. Since it’s my day off (and by day off I mean I don’t run on Monday mornings) I can take my time puttering around in the mornings. It is when I get caught up on everyone’s blogs. I have moved laundry day to Mondays, so I get started on that. And I spend the day doing work and doing bloggy type things. It’s a very relaxing day for me.
Weather wise today is really nice! It’s still cold, in the 20s, but the sky is clear and the sun is shining so bright. I bundled up Rocky and we were out the door for a walk. I think both of us appreciated being outside for our walk. Once we got back home I made us some lunch.
I loved this lunch! I liked being able to pick and nibble here and there with different things. I heated up a can of Amy’s Southwestern veggie soup and immediately saw that it needed some serious doctoring up. I added a small can of V8 (the 5oz can), three huge scoops of salsa, and some chili powder and pepper. The soup alone was a little bland for my liking. Once I added stuff to it though it was really good! I also had two clems and in the middle is some carrots, green pepper, and cucumber to dip in the remaining ranch dressing. I also was pleased with my little mug. I bought those specifically for soup. They are the perfect portion for me. I don’t need a ton of soup or chili or whatever, I just need a small bit. Especially if it’s lunch time. These little mugs worked so well!
Now I’m off to finish laundry and get some more blog stuff done. One thing I need to do for this blog is create a logo. I have a few ideas but have no idea how to go about creating them. I have a Mac so I would need some sort of graphics program or something that I could run from my machine. I would like to create my own business cards but can’t do that till I have a logo. Catch 22 anyone? *sigh*
