I woke up at 4:45 am with a migraine, got up, took one of my pills, got an icepack and went back to bed. When I woke up hours later, the migraine was thankfully gone. When I wake up in the morning, I like to look out our little window. We used to have a tree that I could see through the window, which was wonderful to wake up and see. But, now it's just sky. I hope when we move I'll have a window with a nice view to wake up to.
Being a Sunday, I had laundry to do. No rest for the
Eric made breakfast. Sundays are our splurge days for eating. I also decided to have coffee (Espresso), which I very rarely do.
After breakfast, I did some cleaning around the house while Eric went to the grocery store. I love Sundays, because of how beautiful our counter looks when he comes home with the groceries. He said that yesterday, the person checking him out at the store said "hey you're in here all the time." Eric replied, "once a week," and then the clerk replied, "yeah, that's a lot." I can only shake my head.
We had lunch, and then we went out to run a couple of errands. We went to Target to look at food scales. We're in the process of revamping our food again, in order to make sure I'm getting the protein and fiber I need to keep me going during the day, since beginning tomorrow I'll be going to work, then to workout, then to school, then home around 9 pm.
Then, we ran into Joanne's, so that I could take advantage of my 40% off coupon. Then, over to my favorite place in the world. The bookstore! Ahhhhhh....
I brought home a couple of things, two books and a pair of Emma Ginghers.
We returned home thinking we'd have time before dinner to sit and relax (with stitching!), but that was not to be. We discovered that with the heavy rain the night before, our leaks that we've complained to our property management people about numerous times have started to drip.
So, we spent the rest of the afternoon moving everything from here...
to the other side of the room. Not an ideal solution, but at least it puts our things out of harm's way. Unless the damage grows some more. And yes, that is mold you're seeing in two of the spots.
By the time we were finished moving everything around, it was time for dinner. Our Sunday night dinner usually consists of burgers of some sort. Eric is always coming up with new combinations for us to try. This week it was avocado with black bean pico de gallo. The buns are multigrain buns that we buy individually, since we only make two burgers. These burgers were pretty good, but we decided that we liked last week's version better, with the mango pico.
After dinner, Romeo decided that it was finally time to get up from his day-long nap. His fur is starting to grow in on his shoulders, but you can see his bald spot. Othello was still napping upstairs on his pillow.
After dinner, I decided to make an apple pie. I'd been craving one, and it felt right to make it for the holiday. This is my very first attempt at making a pie. It didn't turn out beautiful and all Martha-Stewart-y like I envisioned, but it came out pretty good.
I got to use my brand new pie pan from Williams Sonoma too!
I never did get to my stitching yesterday, nor did I get to it the day before. Friday night, I did however, manage to finish ripping out that palm tree in my ornament, and almost got the tree restitched. I'm pleased with that and hope to make some more progress on it soon. My button came from JABC, and I am so grateful to them for taking care of me, when no one else would!
So, tomorrow is my first day of work and I'm a little nervous. I'll be sure to check back in when I can and let you know how it's going! Thanks for spending the day with me!!
I am grateful for new scissors.
