It was a crazy busy weekend at our place. Just one of those weekends where I didn’t have enough time for anything that I thought I would get done, including blogging. Sorry about disappearing on you guys. At least this time it was only for 2 days this time. ;-)
My Monday hasn’t been much better in terms of having time. Even though my work schedule was light I decided to try to get a lot of things done and that meant that I was a different type of busy. Needless to say that meant I didn’t have any time to think about the post for tonight. Translation, I am winging this completely!
My morning started with a big glass of green juice which is pictured above. Dan had his green smoothies today this time made with wild blueberries.
After breakfast I waited for the weather to improve so that I could run errands. The weather here was lousy today. We started the day with freezing rain/sleet. I had a few errands to run but didn’t want to drive in the weather. Then I remembered that I had a rolling cart that I used at the farmers’ market so out the door I went on foot. I was chatting with a friend while I ran errands and took some pictures to show the area. Since I have those pictures I decided to use them here too.
This is the old St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.
Here are two pictures of old tombstones from the church cemetery.
This is the firehouse in the CareOne commercial.
Also on the same street is this house from the same CareOne Commercial.
This is the infamous Café Hon which you may have seen in the Gordon Ramsey show. It is a long story about the restaurant which I will save for another post.
These are just random shots of houses along the way while I ran errands by foot.
Lunch for me was more green juice. I did a green juice fast on Sunday and when I got on the scale Monday morning I was down 2 pounds. That is what prompted me to do another day or two. Immediate gratification has a big draw for me. ;-)
Dinner for me was … more green juice. Dan had Moroccan chickpeas and veg over quinoa and a salad.
- We got some potentially very good news from the doctor this morning. Once it materializes I will fill you in.
- I was able to run a few errands today by foot which was not only good for the planet (for fossil fuel use) but was also good for me. Whenever possible I like to use my own energy to run errands.
- The UPS man bought a few CDs for me to today which I have been listening to all afternoon. Three best of CDs: Marvin Gaye, Berry White and Teddy Pendergrass. My house definitely had an old Motown vibe going today.
- I am also grateful for the warm front we are expecting on Tuesday and Wednesday. If the forecast holds up we will be in the upper 60s on Wednesday which means boat time. I need to get down to the marina to check on our girl so why not go when the weather is nice enough to enough a little outdoor time right? I may have to get a little exercise around the harbor while I am there.
Tomorrow we need to get up uber early since Dan has to be in Fredericksburg, Virginia by 9 am. Looks like I will be getting an early start too since Dan has no idea how to make a smoothie. No I am not kidding he really doesn’t. Can you say spoiled? Oh well, I am pretty spoiled too. But I am honestly not looking forward to being up at 5 tomorrow.
I have to run since I still have things to do before I can crawl into bed. Hope your Monday was great. Talk with you soon.
