The morning was successful. After getting some stuff done, we finally made it to the gym around 11:30. Luckily the weather held up and we were able to bike there, but it’s pouring now!! I spent some time on the ET with a good magazine and then we met up for some pull-ups and dips.
You know how I’ve been raving about Mrs. Meyers All-Purpose cleaner? Well I discovered it works really well on our hardwood floors. It’s designed for all surfaces, so it is so nice to have 1 cleaner for the whole house in 1 spray bottle. One reason I HATE cleaning our floors is that I hate getting out the bucket, moving all the furniture, using the vinegar, waiting for it to dry, using the OrangeGlo, waiting for it to dry. It takes like 30-45 minutes. But I discovered that the Mrs. Meyers works just as well as those two (at least for weekly cleanings – I’ll still use the distilled vinegar/move furniture once a month). I’m happy that I can just wet my O-Mop, spritz the floor and be done in 5 minutes. Sweet!
For lunch I decided to have half a turkey + cheese sandwich with some tasty sides. This was 1 slice of Applegate Farm’s Herb Roasted Turkey with some mustard, Parrano cheese and jalapenos under the broiler for a few.
Plus I had a side salad made with CSA mystery greens, some pear (that’s the husband’s handiwork!) and Karen’s lemon dressing (I’m going to get her recipe for this soon).
And a delicious yogurt-granola-pear parfait topped with TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, which is great. It’s just like pumpkin jam. This was the TJ’s European yogurt. I liked it a lot, but nothing compared to the thickness of greek yogurt. But this kind was thick and tangy. It reminded me of the Emmi brand swiss yogurt I used to buy at the Fresh Market. This European was DEFINITELY better than your average plain yogurt. For the cost, I’d say it’ll be a supplement to our greek supply in the future.
The husband, it being a “Saturday” and all, made a huge bowl of dessert. And I found a little sampling in my empty parfait glass!
We are planning to go to the movie after dinner instead of this afternoon. And I think we’re going to sneak in some wine! Until then, I’ve got to buckle down and get some studying done
Danielle shared this great video on women’s body image this morning. Check it out. Not only does it have a good message, but I LOVE how creative it is with the visual and music.
