HA! Like my $10 word? Elude. I actually had to look it up to make sure that it really meant what I thought it meant. Good thing too, I almost used ALLUDE! Now that I’m telling you this, I hope you don’t think less of me 😉
I’m in a rut with chicken.
I usually just cook it up in my Turbo Cooker with some salt free spices and call it a day. Officer M isn’t big fan of this method. I could make some White Bean Chicken Chili and cornbread. Or a casserole. There’s always pot pie. I may have to hit up some of my favorite recipe sites for inspiration….. I’ll let you know what I come up with, I know you’ll be waiting on pins and needles!
I got quite a bit accomplished yesterday in regards to my numerous projects. The secret one is like 5 minutes from finished – I just have to get to Home Depot! Not an easy task given the weather recently:
The driveway is a solid sheet of ice.
I got the bedroom primed and will be painting it today. The plan is to have the walls done and the headboard started by Friday.
I also finished a couple of small items:
♣This lovely piece of art is actually made of toilet paper rolls, glued together and sprayed with a metallic paint. It’s in my bathroom. Thought that was fitting…
♠I’ve seen these wreaths a lot lately. I think the original version was by Pottery Barn for $$$. Whatev. Mine cost me like 52¢ -suck on that P.B.!
Yesterday was also P90X Arms and Shoulders. This is my 3rd time around with the program (well, 2 1/2 – I kinda made up my own version last time round), so this time I’m trying to lift heavy. I mainly used 20’s and 25’s with a few 15lb-ers thrown in when I got tired. Looking at my tracking sheet for the last 3 weeks, I realized I should’ve started heavier from the get-go. Some exercises went from 20 reps with a 15lb weight to 8 with a 25! I feel it today and that makes me happy 🙂
I should go get my butt in gear. Aside from painting, I promised Peyton & Reese we’d make bird seed feeders (show ya that later) and the house needs a thorough dusting. Seriously. It’s like, eeeeeewww.
Happy Hump Day!
