A Look At Our Week
Our week included a little more activity than last week! I am worried I could really become this little homebody that never leaves the house though. On Tuesday, my guy went to Sam’s Club in Bristol, TN to restock supplies. He referred to this as a “man trip” (he was getting manly supplies: beer, protein shakes, and taking trash to the dump) but I was invited and encouraged to go. I considered the invitation but the thought of just staying home and doing my thing won out. I said staying home would keep me from eating foods I did not want to eat and spending money I did not want to spend.
I instead made a plan to go to the grocery store, which I quickly talked myself out of. The next day I had a doctor’s appointment and no excuse to not go out! I have enjoyed my first medical experience in the new town. Everything is done through the small hospital. I haven’t yet figured out where the hospital patients go, but my outpatient experiences were very good.
Thursday we were in Boone, N.C. getting oil changes & tire rotations. Wednesday night I had a little panic attack when I saw snow in our forecast and we had no puzzles to do. We visited the new Hobby Lobby in Boone to restock! We are good for now, 2 new 1,000 piecers!
Friday we were off to Ohio again to celebrate my guy’s dad’s birthday. It was a fun-filled family weekend. Time spent with family is always a good time.
I saw deer for the first time in our pasture this week. We see them all over the road and my guy has seen them on the top of the pasture but this was the first time we had seen them so close to the house.
I have also been watching what I assume is the same turkey hanging out in the same spot for multiple days. It seems like every time I look out the door he is there. It’s only one turkey, which is odd since usually there are more than one traveling together. Not sure what his deal is, but he is able to move and does leave the spot throughout the day.
What’s for Dinner
Lemon, Garlic & Herb Baked Cod with Parmesan Cauliflower was on the menu for Sunday. It was Eh, okay. Will not be going on the normal rotation. The cauliflower was very good though!
Monday & Tuesday we used up all of our leftover veggies from last week with some shrimp. Very good! My guy even tried the mushrooms!
Wednesday & Thursday we had Italian Meatball & Noodle Soup. This was very good! We are big soup eaters and this one is one of the faves.
The diet has been going very well. I am on Day 25 of no sweets and no sodas! Check out what my guy brought home from his Sam’s trip (and I have not had even ONE!)
He was nice enough to send me this picture on his way home.
We finished our new 2,000 piece puzzle. This one was much easier than the last one!
Oops! No selfies this week! I dug back into the archives for this one!
Have a great week! XOXO
