I want, I need, to go to bed early tonight. Trying to get back to a routine after returning from vacation is proving difficult. Like it or not Monday morning is coming and I really want to start my week with a run before work. I have a 7 mile event on Sunday (I updated my running goals page with June’s event info) that sort of snuck up on me! Regardless it will be fun.
So today started a bit slow or should I say relaxing. I watched a Scooby with Little Guy while writing up my Fennel and Spinach Soup idea. Afterwards I took a bath and finished another chapter in Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. I’m not the biggest reader. I try but between work, blogs, and family, I just don’t have the time right now. But this book caught my attention at the airport when I was heading to Boston and I’ve been sneaking a chapter here and there ever since. Chelsea totally cracks me up.
Post bath I experimented in the kitchen a bit making a pepperoni pizza puff. It’s not ready for prime time yet. I want to take another stab at it before sharing the idea on GreenLiteBites but here’s a picture.
I haven’t done enough of this lately (playing in the kitchen) and I miss it. I can’t wait to be home during the day just so I can cook!
In the afternoon I headed out to run errands and pick up new pots for our container gardening. I’ve been a bit out of my element in the new house. We don’t have a deck yet and I’m not ready to plant a garden in the back. So I purchased a few large pots and did some solo plants on the front porch.
I’m don’t have the greenest thumb but I’ve learned a lot experimenting over the years. You can read some Lessons I Learned from first ever Ugly Garden over on GreenLiteBites.
This year I went with a tomato plant, a zucchini, some herbs and the toddlers home grown water melon which he started from seed…
We also have a few pepper seeds starting on the windowsill…
Oh and of course, Irish was overseeing this whole operation. :)
All of a sudden it was dinner time. I cooked, made lunches and threw on my running clothes. I’m all ready for tomorrow. Now all I have to do is go to bed but the Next Food Network Star is sucking me in. It’s my far my favorite reality show. :)
Here’s the food journal. Day 2 in counting points a success!
