Instead of another macrobiotics post, I thought I might share what I was up to this weekend. I am so glad springtime is finally around the corner.
Friday night I was able to leave work by 6pm. I meandered home and cooked up some sweet potato gnocchi (Trader Joe’s) for myself. Bobby ended up having to work late so I was on my own. I just played around with a couple of website ideas I’ve been thinking of… overall a relaxing evening. I also read The Help (my current book). It’s really great; I definitely recommend it. I have not seen the movie yet but I will when I finish the novel.

I saw this survey on debbie’s blog a few days ago and I couldn’t resist. It was my birthday yesterday so I have been thinking about time, how things have changed, my hobbies and habits over the years, and just remembering fondly times of old. One thing I used to do back in high school – it must have been high school? – is fill out surveys like this. My friends and I all had Xanga’s and we would all take silly quizzes like this and post them and then comment on each other’s answers. There was also Xanga drama but that was because we were high schoolers and high schoolers looooove drama.
So here is a little quizzie-survey thing. Feel free to do it yourself!

meal of the day #1 – february 6
This was breakfast/brunch yesterday. I cooked up 4 eggs in bacon fat with onions and chopped Brussels sprouts (split between me and the hubs, I think he got about 2/3 of it), a cup of Irish oatmeal (he got more of this as well), nitrate/nitrite-free bacon (this is the “bits and pieces” from Trader Joe’s – it’s cheaper than the regular strips, but made of the same natural stuff – we split-ish, Bobby probably got a little more), and steamed kabocha squash (I took all the squash).
Back in January I laid out some goals for myself for this year. I decided to take them one at a time, a month at a time – seemed more reasonable than doing 12398438 goals at once. My initial goals for January were:
- Food – Cut the artificial sweeteners completely
- Life – Read a book for 30 minutes a day.
