Terrific Tuesday

What a perfectly terrific Tuesday I had. With no place to be today I was able to sleep in - oh the absolute joy of no alarm clock. I must admit, that is a guilty pleasure of mine...sleeping in. But why do I feel guilty? Not sure...another post, perhaps.

I checked the blogs this morning and then did a few chores. After Jacob cleaned his room, with much prompting, we drove over and met Michael for lunch. He has been raving about a new Chinese restaurant, so of course, we had to try it. Great salt and pepper chicken, interesting. My only concern with the restaurant was that it is a 'buffet' and with Weigh Wednesday tomorrow, I was worried I wouldn't be able to make the best choices. After deciding that this is not a diet, but a way of life, I conceded. Actually, I made good choices...mostly veggies and some shrimp. Now that I think about it I ate mostly mushrooms....they had the most delicious mushrooms - weird, I know.

After lunch Jacob and I went back to Michael's office and talked for a bit. Jacob really enjoys seeing where his daddy works...and of course wanted to stay. But since children really aren't allowed, we headed home.

Jacob was supposed to have baseball practice tonight, but it got rained out. Which is a total blessing, not only that he (and we) could use a night off from practice, but we welcomed the rain. My many hydrangeas that Michael purchased for me recently needed the watering.

I worked for a bit this afternoon, which is always terrific....means I get a paycheck.

When Michael got home I tried to convince him to work on Hannah's closet...definitely another post....but with the rain he decided going to buy wood would not be the best idea. We decided to measure and plan some more....and I think we've determined we'll wait for PaPa to return home.

I had to return a movie to Blockbuster and also had to pick up a book on hold at the library. I tried to persuade Michael and Jacob to join me, but alas - I was on my own. Just as well, I was able to browse the library, at my own convenience, rather than running in only to pick up the book on hold. (The book wasn't even for me, but for Hannah). I found a biography of Florence Nightingale and a Biggest Loser Cookbook....very excited about both.

At Blockbuster I picked out a movie for Michael and then was going to pick one for Jacob, seeing as how I had something to read when I returned home. Then, as I had 2 movies in my hands, neither for me, I saw the movie Miss Potter...which I had in my queue online. I decided to 'shelve' the kid movie and rent a movie for me.

When I got home I popped a bag of popcorn and settled in to watch Miss Potter....I tried to have company, but Michael and Jacob were racing matchbox cars in Jacob's room....

I must tell you, Miss Potter was by far the best movie I have seen all year....maybe even longer. A beautifully enchanting film, one that you can watch with the whole family, although really small children probably would not 'get it'. I'm now wishing I had checked out Beatrix Potter's biography instead. I will have to dig out some of our Peter Rabbit books.

Truly a Terrific Tuesday. Until tomorrow....Weigh Wednesday...

Good blog. I enjoyed reading it, as usual. Just when I think I'm getting burned out of blogging, I get a second wind. I'm lovin' it.

2008 is going to be great....
It's the year I'm going to lose weight!
