Not only did the SUN come out for about an hour this afternoon, but I found this little bulb trying to peek out of the ground!
I have a feeling we’re going to get some freezing temps soon. We’ve been having unseasonably warm (and unseasonably cloudy) weather since before Christmas. Really the only horrible month in North Carolina is January. Any day now the cold weather will come, but luckily we don’t have long until we’re back in the 60’s.
I spent the morning redecorating my house. Nothing major – just moving things around, cleaning out cluttered corners, etc. I also cleaned, vacuumed and more. I wanted to rearrange two major rooms, but the husband vetoed the decision. Guess this whole day is about marital compromise!
I broke for lunch around 2:30. I wasn’t starving, but I felt empty from all my housework. I combined a bunch of stuff in our fridge into this big salad:
- Romaine tossed in Fig balsamic vinegar and lemon olive oil
- Broccoli + cauliflower (which I steamed for a minute in the microwave)
- Carrot + green pepper
- 1/2 a cup of leftover lima beans + black-eyed peas
- 1/4 cup homemade hummus
- Some goat cheese sprinkles
- A few candied almonds
On the side I had a piece of leftover flax flatbread –
It was more filling than it looks with all those beans + hummus under there.
I have been so thirsty lately. I don’t drink enough water in the winter due to my coldness problems so I am making myself drinking a big orange cup throughout the rest of the afternoon.
After lunch (when the sun came out) the husband and I walked to the shopping center near our house and back to run an errand. Sadly, the sun is now hidden again by clouds 🙁
Off to do more stuff!
