Yes, I did take my little sewn heart outside as a photo prop. Don't heckle me.
We have had quite a lack of snow this year. Previous to last night we only had one substantial snowfall this winter (substantial meaning we actually had to shovel). Can't say I'm super excited about getting snow, but it is kinda nice not to have to stare at brown grass, either.
Hopefully this is the last of it, though.
I'm so ready for spring!
On another note, Kaiwi and I have been endeavoring to eat healthier lately. We kinda fell off the bandwagon back there around Christmas when we were still planning for him to be leaving. Our meal planning discussions went a little something like this:
"What would you like for supper tonight?"
"Oh, I don't care... let's go out to eat."
Then, in my preparations to visit Ruth I stocked our freezer with easy-to-prepare junk food for Kaiwi. It's still there, tempting me every night around supper time when I ask myself, "What should I make?"
You may ask, "Well, Kaiwi didn't eat all the junk food?"
No, no he did not. He ate hot dogs.
Anyway, the point of my ramblings is that we have been trying to exercise a little more self-control lately. We have been eating mostly veggies and lean meats for the past week and a half. Kaiwi has already dropped several pounds, and me... nothing. That's the way it goes though. Guys just lose weight easier. My cheating every now and then probably doesn't help. But honestly, my goal is not to lose weight, it is just to eat healthier.
We have basically no dairy or breads in the house right now, though. This is something I sorely missed the first week. This week though I don't mind so much. Meal planning has also gotten much easier. Our meals all basically look like this:
It's all been very good, actually. I think we have been lacking in the area of veggies so that is one change I want to keep around.
I'm waiting for the day when I can revive my bread machine. I have a few recipes with it I want to try. Aaaaand, I've been craving some gooey chocolate cake for two weeks now.
I don't care how many veggies you feed me. I still want cake.
