How did he know exactly what I was up to?
Sorry Thomas, next year it can stay up a little longer!
I am ready for New Years!! The red and green have been put away, and the bright whites and navy blues have reappeared.
Yesterday’s lunch: tuna salad, chips, green salad with peppers, nuts, feta and homemade dressing.
Despite the cold, Mazen had a blast playing outside with the neighbors. I say it all the time, but we’re so lucky to have them as playmates! They had a fire pit going with hot dogs and s’mores.
We had leftovers for dinner last night – mac and cheese, BBQ chicken, and a freshly made salad.
Breakfast today was orange in theme – scrambled farm-fresh eggs and an orange. Plus coffee!
I went to strength class mid-morning, and then T and I hit up Mezeh for a quick lunch before heading to Lowes. I am still tweaking my Mezeh order to find the perfect balance between feeling full and it tasting amazing. For a while I was so uncomfortably full that I wasn’t hungry for dinner, even hours later. So, I’m trying to lighten up by subtracting things I don’t care much about (like rice) and putting weight into my favorites (like anything white!) Today’s bowl was arugula with carrots, cucumber, eggplant x2, spicy hummus, falafel, a few pieces of chicken kebob, and three kinds of feta and yogurt dips. (That last one is where I over-do it and also refuse to compromise on!)
We are in the process of turning our guest room closet into a proper linen closet, so I went with my handsome handyman to pick out the shelving. I love watching him in his element. Look at him concentrating on drywall anchors!
To be continued!
