Good morning everyone – Happy Monday!
I’m so nervous – I could not fall asleep last night! It was one of those things where you’re laying there and you can tell you’re not fully awake, but you’re not fully asleep either. I don’t know if I fell completely asleep until after 12 and for a nervous nelly like me, who NEEDS it least 7 hours a night – that is slightly terrifying. Do you ever those kinds of nights? There’s no rhyme or reason as to why they happen, I feel!
Tired or not, I got up for my morning Mom walk and I am so glad I did – it is gorgeous outside! It’s actually supposed to get up to 68 degrees today…can you imagine?! It was especially nice to get out today because it rained 3 out of the 4 days we were supposed to walk last week, so I hadn’t got any good face time with my Mom in what felt like forever
Breakfast was a repeater of Friday’s gem – a Banana and Almond Butter Sandwich with a Honeycrisp Apple.
This may, or may not, be the straightest banana I’ve ever eaten…
A Honeycrisp was perfect for dipping up all the extra almond butter!
And I am so excited for lunch you guys. I made a Pickle Salad. I love pickles!
- Romaine lettuce
- Sliced deli ham
- Sliced pickles
- Carrot chips
I also packed a Blueberry Buckle Yogurt.
Did you know a Blueberry Buckle is a single layer cake studded with blueberries and topped with a streusel topping? I’ve never had the real thing, but it sure makes for a tasty yogurt!
In other news, remember a couple weeks ago when I had that horrifying bug encounter? Afterwards, my friend Joe told me that he and his wife use Hedgeapples to repel the creepy crawlies. I had my Mom pick some up for me at the Farmer’s Market this weekend. Aren’t they crazy?
Today I’m going to plot out as to where I’m going to place them around the house. Maybe a hedgeapple a day will keep the bugs away?
Have a great day back everyone!
What are you looking forward to this week?
I’m looking forward to some great weather, possibly a haircut later in the week, a breast cancer Walk for the Cure walk next weekend (am I already thinking about next weekend?!) and some VERY special dinners made by someone near and dear to my heart!
