a lovely day

April 23rd, 2011 at 07:57 pm

It is cloudy and gray with wind gusts of 40 mph. However, since my mom went down to my grandma's to clean out more of her house, I decided not to walk today. Because I'm not going outside walking I decided to sleep in late and not take a shower or get dressed. I'm lounging around in sweats. I started a really good book and plan to spend most of the day reading. Lunch and dinner are already cooked and just needs to be heated up, so a lovely day.

Last night I made my roast chicken with bacon, which is wonderful. Basically olive oil, salt and pepper chicken strips. Add a piece of bacon on top and roast for 15 min in oven at 450 degrees. I had it with green beans and tomatoes. For lunch today I will have leftovers of the chicken and a large salad, with the veggies already prepared. The bacon really keeps the chicken moist, even when reheated.

For dinner I have a piece of leftover steak, which I will have with grilled onions, green beans and tomatoes.

I spent $50 at Home Depot yesterday to have someone come and measure my house for carpet next Tuesday. They will reimburse the amount when I get the carpet installed. It's going to cost approx $5000 to get the Martha Stewart Living carpet I want. It has a diamond pattern in it. The color is called carton. I originally wanted stainmaster carpet, but it's $2500 more. This has a better warranty and is comparable for stains. The cost includes extra fees for removing and taking away the old carpet, moving furniture and installing on stairs. I plan to stay here for another 10 years, otherwise I would have gone with a cheaper carpet.

Mom told me yesterday she is almost out of her discounted J.C. Penny cards, so I ordered $200 worth yesterday from Gift Card Rescue and got them at 15% off.

I finished reading my book Dress Her in Indigo by John D. MacDonald. Mystery - pretty good.
