Today is “sloth Sunday” as it is the only actual rest day I take all week. I plan to watch TV, read the ads, maybe make a run to Costco (and any other place that appeals to me in the ads). And then a good friend is coming for dinner and the True Blood Season Finale. On the menu is beer, a pimped up version of a Weight Watchers Jambalaya recipe, and these Peanut Butter Cup Brownies.. They will probably be featured on Food Friday so I will let you know.
What the hell are they trying to say? I got most of it together, realized that the rails for the drawers were backwards and had to redo. By the time I got it all done, I didn’t have the heart to start on the second set. Michael said he would do it for me, but he probably doesn’t remember and even if he does, I could be waiting months before he decides to get around to it. So I will do it later this week.
Off to rescue the paper from the driveway. Maybe I will even get through some of the House Hunters I taped last weekend!
It was a tough call, what to do today. And once I realized that there was TWELVE STRAIGHT HOURS OF HOUSE HUNTERS on, it got even harder. But that is what the DVR is for! And I actually got excited about the idea of watching the House Hunters all week while I eat my lunch. So off we went to Trader Joe’s and Ikea in Charlotte.
I didn’t get to take my own pictures because I was SO excited to be there that I forgot. The same was true when we got to Ikea (and it was raining when we came out). Traders Joe’s was exciting for the Cinnamon crumpets, the Cinnamon scones (see a pattern), the trail mixes, mini peanut butter cups. I wandered around so long Michael thought I was done and waiting outside. I saw Two Buck Chuck. And Corn Salsa. And yummy desserts and pizza. I could go on and on. We need to go back with a cooler.
We can thank what is left of Tropical Storm Lee for a very SLOW drive home. And the forecasts say the weather will suck here for at least the next 24 hours, so I am curled up with a Stella and House Hunters/US Open Tennis.
Can Labor Day last a few more days?
Oh, and I did run 3 miles and do leg presses, calf raises and hamstring curls at the gym before we went!
