Another Full Day

Posted by Susan on November 9, 2009

What a weekend it has been. Busy , but in a good way ! We got a lot done and now that it’s come to a close I feel accomplished.

Today started with a visit to a friend of mine who had a birthday yesterday ! She Turned 93 ! Believe it or not one of my best friends in the entire world is a woman who is 93. She is one of the most intelligent, interesting , witty people I know. She suffered a stroke a few years ago and is now living in a nursing home. Matt and I brought her some Mc Donald’s for lunch and a piece of carrot cake from a bakery here in town. She was very happy to have company for lunch and even happier to have something different for lunch ! (she was an accomplished cook and thinks the food at the nursing home is “rubbish”) I ended up having a burger myself , but forgot to photograph it.



Knowing that I was going to have  burger for lunch, I had a simple breakfast this morning. Reduced Fat Peanut Butter and a banana on a Multigrain English Muffin.


When we got home, it was time to do some serious work in our yard ! The leaves were getting out of control , and since it was 60 degrees today, we figured that we should take advantage of it ! this is our backyard, so many leaves you can’t even see the grass !



Last load to be dragged into the woods for the day !


When we finally finished I was of course starving so I had a slice of left over pizza to tide me over until dinner.


Then I took a hot shower and put on my new PJ’s ! These are so warm and comfy. I wish I bought a few more pairs !


For dinner I had the last of the Annie’s Mac and Cheese with ground turkey, and a spinach salad.


I decided on a special dessert tonight. I made a cup of hot chocolate with Cadbury Drinking Chocolate.



I don’t make it often , because it is pretty high in calorie, but it is so rich and delicious and perfect for a Sunday night after all day working outdoors ! I had it with some Oreo Cookie Cakes .


Last but not least , here is our new and improved bedroom !


I love it ! It is exactly what I was hoping for ! The only thing missing is some large decorative pillows for the bed . They should be in before the end of the week , they are on order . My husband did a fantastic job ! Next on the agenda is the living room ! It needs to be painted before Thanksgiving ! We will be on that one within the next week or two ! We are cutting it close .

So now I am off to watch TV in bed and catch up on some of my blog reading. I can’t believe the weekend is over ! The good news is that another is only 5 days away ! Have a great night !
