It's been a pretty busy and tiring day! It started early this morning with Michael moving the bathroom vent. Then, we went to the bank and to our local nursery to get some flowers for the front flower beds. When we got home, all four of us were hanging out in the front of the house - Justin in the stroller, Julia running around, Michael and I working in the flower bed. I pulled weeds and worked up the dirt. Michael followed behind me raking it level. Then...I placed the flowers where I wanted them, and Michael dug the holes. By then, it was lunch time, and Justin was already down for a nap. Michael took Julia inside to give her some lunch, and I planted all of the flowers. After I got everything put away, I went back inside and had some lunch, then grabbed a not so quick shower. We all got dressed and headed off to church! When we got home, we had dinner, then headed out to the back yard, figured out where the rows were going to be, and got to planting! We now have peas, beans, cucumbers, carrots and squash in the ground. I also have tomatoes and peppers in cups inside. I started them pretty late, so they're pretty small. We'll see how successful those are this year. Oh...and somewhere in all of that...we did 3 loads of laundry! I am whooped, but I will still probably be up until 10:00 reading my book!
Today, I started a week long detox. A lot of people are calling it a diet (technically...it is called a diet), but it's not. At least not in my eyes! It's already been somewhat challenging...but I'm up for it! Today was "all fruit (no bananas) day. For breakfast I had a grapefruit, some watermelon, and a few strawberries. A.M. snack was an apple and half of an avocado (yes, it's technically a fruit), lunch was watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapple. Dinner was yet more watermelon, cantaloupe, raspberries, and one very unripe kiwi. I didn't eat the whole thing. P.M. snack (so far) has been a large handful of grapes. I want some tortilla chips SO bad...but I can do this!
Tomorrow...bring on the vegetables!!!
Sorry for the big jumbled mess of a post. I'm sleepy!
