One of the first things I do on the weekend before setting into laundry is getting my Isagenix set up for the next week. Last week I began doing a baggie for each day. I get to work and then end up digging in plastic, digging in plastic, digging in plastic.....for all the things I need. I just decided that I would deal with whatever choice was in the bag for that day (flavors, snacks). But when I set the bag up I put in different things. I only have one snack per day that is Isagenix and the other snack is usually nuts or carrots or something.
We had a nice morning at home. We got up around 5:30 or 6 b/c the dogs were ready to go out. And then George worked in the yard some. I told him I really needed to unwind still and drink coffee and play candy crush. He said go for it. I didn't want to feel guilty, lol. But soon enough I began doing laundry and ironing and cleaning the kitchen. I got hungry and fixed a whole grain English Muffin with peanut butter on it. George got hot and came in and took a shower and began working on the carpets.
Then we went out on an excursion as we call it. (Where you go out and have several stops - either to shop, eat, errands). An excursion sounds much more fun right? So we headed out to Tuesday Morning and I found a comforter for the guest bedroom. I had set June as my month to do this, but I got a bit of a head start. They have the best deals I've seen on comforters, and quilts. I was really thinking more along the lines of a quilt as it's more easily washed. But I found one that the colors were really inviting for this room. So for $49.99 for comforter with shams - NOT BAD!
Then we went to the Wine store to find Gamay wine b/c I liked it's gentle flavor similar to a Pinot Noir. We learned something new. We had been drinking Gamay all along. The Beaujolais wine is made from that area of Beaujolais (it's not just a name, it's an area of France.)
So we ended up buying a bottle of Beaujolais but a year or two older than the new shipments were. We'll have it on a special occasion. Sometimes a special occasion is when we are having a really good steak, lol. (The beef we bought from KY from the cow that was slaughtered - the steaks were really too thin.)
And we went to Aldi and got a few things. I bought some really good cheese imports that were at really good prices.
And then we came back home and unloaded our treasures. I took the dogs out for a little walk around the yard. It was hot but very breezy. A little humid.
Then we came back in. The dogs apparently worn out from their morning, having us there and keeping them awake with the carpet cleaner, lol, and they took off into some deep sleeps. I mean we had to make sure Roger hadn't kicked off. Look at him!
George did more floors with the carpet cleaner and I began pre-prepping for the taco dinner. Then we both set in to chopping and cooking it.
George showed me how to properly cut an avacado. Don't laugh. I've always been intimidated with chopping things until finally got it down in my 30's, but the avacado has not been in my diet much until the last 6 or 8 years or so and usually fixed by someone else. I have been slicking them and getting it out with a spoon, but he showed me how to nicely slice them. The ceramic knife worked well for this.
I grated up some Irish Cheddar Cheese for our tacos, and honestly I don't think I will want any other kind any more. It was really really good and had a much better taste than what we buy at the store already grated. I think I just spoiled myself b/c I'll have to have this from now on.
George doctored up a can of black beans with vidalia onion, tomatoes, and some spices. They were really good too.
We had both crispy and soft tacos but the corn tortillas just tore apart. I'm not sure what the trick is there. So I was glad we had the crispy ones. I'm wondering why we don't have tacos more often. They are so darn good.
I checked in with friend Lisa, recently back from her trip to CA and guess what they were fixing? Tacos! lol
Well, we have had a wonderful day yesterday. We watched the final episode of Drunk History. lol
And this morning we are going to church. We are going to try to hit a lobster truck for lunch and then go tour a dream home that was built in our area. I'm wearing jeans to church but dressing it up. I don't want to be in dress clothes all day. So let everyone talk about me I guess. I don't think many wear jeans to the church we go to. But it shouldn't be about dress anyway. We won't be coming home to change.
I'm going for another cup of coffee here. And then fixing a shake. You all enjoy your day. Soon our little holiday weekend will be half over. Dang it.
