Good Sunday

February 4th, 2008 at 04:53 am

walked with mom at WalMart everyday this week.

Chopped all my veggies, boiled eggs and made tuna for the week before a friend came over to spend the afternoon.

We went to 3 Margarita's for lunch and then over to Home Depot to pick out paint colors for their new addition. It was fun to wander around and see the various items. In the next year or so I want to replace my carpet. I found a nice green carpet I liked with a stamped pattern.

Then we watched Shrek the Third and talked for a couple hours. Shrek wasn't as good as the other two, but still fun. Very nice day.

I watched Blades of Glory the other day too. I got it from the library. I was disappointed. It seems like most movies aren't that interesting to me lately. Not sure why, maybe because I've seen the previews so many times that by the time I get the movie from the library I feel like I've seen it and am bored.

I don't have any radishes yet, hopefully sometime this next week. I have lots of leaves, but no bulbs. I planted a second batch a couple weeks ago and another one today. I also planted some lettuce today. I planted some green onions and they have sprouted, but no sign of my tomato. I may have to replant that one.

It's been extremely cold and gloomy here this week so maybe my pots aren't getting enough light.

I finished reading Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 by Todd Wilbur. Excellent. I copied several new recipes to try.

Red Robin Seasoning
Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Hard Rock Cafe Coleslaw
Claim Jumper Meatloaf
Chili's Honey Mustard Dressing that comes with their Chicken Crispers
Applebee's Almond Rice Pilaf

I also found a recipe online for Crunchy Garlic Cornbread Croutons that use Boston Market's cornbread as the base. I really liked the cornbread croutons that were on the salad I had at the Claim Jumper's last month.

I read the Feb/March issue of The Mother Earth News. They have an article about 8 Easy Projects for Energy Savings. One I had never heard about before but might try is spraying the windows with water and then applying bubble wrap to insulate your windows. The article is online also.

I read my book A Secret Rage by Charlaine Harris. Mystery. Very good.

I read the library book Plum Loving by Janet Evanovich. Mystery. Excellent as always. A Stephanie Plum book.

I read the library book Howl at the Moon by Christine Warren. Supernatural/Romance. Very good

I read my book Song in the Silence by Elizabeth Kenner. Sci fi. Ok, nothing special

I read the library book Incredible Vegetables from Self-Watering Containers: Using Ed's Amazing POTS System by Edward C. Smith. Gardening. Excellent book. Very inspiring to me and lots of information about individual vegetables.

    I agree, Shrek III didn't measure up.

    The bubble wrap idea is interesting -- but wouldn't it fall off when the water evaporates?

    Those books on gardenig and the Mother Earth News sound really interesting. I will have to tell my DH about them. He loves magazines and books on gardening.
    Have you read the Nevada Barr books. I am reading her series of Anna Pigeon mysteries now. I love her books. Check it out.

    You reminded me that I need to prepare all my snack foods for the week ahead on Sunday... putting them into one-serving packages so I can grab and go. It's so simple...!
