In my efforts to clear up and clean up before we leave for two months, I have encountered some interesting things. Today our northward facing apartment seemed chilly...and so I decided to use a box of brownie mix. My son will likely take it all home so it seemed a good idea. Well folks, I have lost my magic touch. I didn’t sift the icing sugar, I used a bowl that was way too small and made a chocolate mess, and my sink is full of utensils and cups !!!
Why did I not simply send this to the food bank ?
Nobody here likes these much anyway, but I thought...clear up and oven heat will take the chill off. Ok. But the oven is slower , than slow, and it took much longer than specified on the infernal package. I promise not to do this again.
I am going to try an interesting homemade tomato soup. That’s more manageable and I have a slew of veg just vegging in my cooler. It’s easy vegan too which is great because I am part vegetarian.
Yesterday I tried on my jeans...I found three pair I tucked away at the very back of my closet. It was not a happy hour. The Goodwill on the other hand will be thrilled. Along with these pristine legging style beauties, I have found a half dozen skinny style jerseys that are no longer flattering. They wouldn’t even do in the gym !
Wake up call to do more back ex !!!
Truth is, these garments were always snug, but then I also was tighter. Blushing now. I bought items like that thinking they would fit once I lost the last 10 ( ok 12 ) but I will not fall into that trap again.
Today, Saturday, is all domestic. I like it ! And I can get things ready for dinner, get some exercise time in as well.
The countdown begins this weekend. We want to see everyone before we set out for California. Just a couple of weeks to go. This Tuesday is flu shot day ! That’s the last of the medical dental flurry for me. My husband has only the dermatologist to go but they could not fit me in. It will be February before I get to meet this new specialist. I have heard good things.
On to the tomato soup ! This kitchen smells amazing . It’a happy Saturday for me, and I hope for you as well.
