Wednesday, Happy Valentines Day!

    
If you look closely Sluggy and I are in this photo somewhere....Happy Valentines Day!

I woke up to the doorbell ringing luckily Hub's was up to answer the door. It was a policeman needing uniform alterations.  Mom was up earlier than usual and I have her showered and dressed.  Lil sis is taking her out to dinner this evening so she is excited.  I am excited as Hub's and I can be alone for a couple of hours.  Hub's had a box of chocolates for each of us, and I will make him a nice dinner.  I also made a pan of my favorite  Valentine shortbread.  I need to go toast some almonds and melt some chocolate to dip it in.  I will take a couple of pieces over to the neighbors and check on them.

     Mom and I went out last night and went to two stores.  I spent a total of $2.11 so it was a big shopping run.   Came home and cooked fish, asparagus, and cauliflower for dinner.  Mom does not like asparagus or cooked cauliflower.  So she had a plate with raw cauliflower, ranch dressing for dipping and white fish.  This is a meal that would have scored an F on appearance in home ec.  All white on a white plate.

     I have enough sewing to get through the day, so that is a blessing. It is now 1/2 way through the month and money wise in the shop it has been slow, slow.  It looks like I will just meet my goals. Wouldn't it be nice if I could over do them a little? I am always pushing, I just want this debt gone!

     I want to run up and throw together another pan of short bread and get a few other things done today besides sewing.  Maybe the laundry, clean the cat box, do some ironing, polish the flippin silver.  You know all of those important things in life.  *snort*

 Actually I am going to practice my square dance moves, I don't want Sluggy to show me up.  (hint: she has on a red skirt)


Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  3. Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like an all red square dance. I have been doing the whole 30 thing for 14 days now and would almost kill for a cookie of any kind, and you talk of cookies dipped in chocolate. My downfall! (Who am I kidding, I would almost kill for a piece of toast or a cracker)

    1. I have carb dieted most of my life, as I had to when I was dancing and had to weigh no more than 105, but they wanted me at 98. I have low carbed myself into 40 more lbs by eating too many treats but I always have to go back as I will not buy new clothes. I also hate it. Try those high protein shakes, that are chocolate they will really help the cravings, at least they work for me. I am beginning to hate eggs, and meat, salad hurts my stomach, just too many years of starving myself.
