March Snow

Here I am again with my daily weekly  whenever post.  I wish I could say that I've been really busy in the sewing room, but that would be an untruth.
This photo was taken out of the living room window this morning - just about 10 minutes ago.  It's March 5, for Pete's sake.  We aren't supposed to get all this snow, especially when it's going into the upper fifties on Wednesday.  I'm one of the lucky ones that get to sit inside and watch it snow out of the window.  Those who did have to go to work this morning say the roads were horrendous.  I always like to have the bird feeder in the snow photos because you can see how much snow we've gotten by looking at the height of the "hat" the feeder is sporting.  I admit it's beautiful, but I must confess that I'm more than ready for spring.  I need to hear the birds sing, I need to see the flowers bloom, and I need to sit on my deck and watch the fish in the pond.  The only good thing about now is that in less than 3 weeks we can make our dining reservations for our September Disney trip.  And last week, we got free dining.

I feel like my whole life these days revolves around food.  It seems that it's all I think about, internet surf about, cry about, laugh about, and, oh yes, cuss about.  My numbers are still fairly high, and I'm about at my wit's end.  Making my breakfasts and lunches ahead was a great idea.  However, there was no switching it up and I found that I quickly tired of egg cups and pasta salads.  So again this weekend, I thought and thought until my thinker was sore (to loosely quote Dr. Seuss) about what to do next.  Breakfasts will alternate between oatmeal, Special K, and poached eggs on either toast or an English muffin half.  Lunches will be varied garden salads, lean ham and cheese sandwiches, and my favorite peanut butter and diet jelly on Arnold's sandwich thins.  Mary made me some homemade salsa over the weekend, and I can use it for snacks, along with some diet jello that I made on Sunday and put into single serving cups.

Tomorrow is Kristin's day off, and I don't have the kids; so I'm hoping to renew my friendship with the sewing room.  I'm sure it's feeling neglected.

The snow is beautiful! IMO, snow is only for looking at. lol I'm sorry to hear your numbers are still high. Have fun with your machine.

I’m with ya n the snow gripe! We have it here too. In fact, it probably dumped on us first, so think of how much sn** you’d have if we hadn’t relieved those clouds of some of it! :)

Have you ever tried PB2? It’s peanut butter powder, what happens to peanut butter when you remove the fat! I use it to cook too, but on a sandwich thin with jelly, a serving is 2 TABLEspoons instead of one teaspoon and the PB2 is just one WW point per serving. Good stuff! (It’s on my “products I love” Pinterest board if you want to check it out) It’s helped a lot with my big spoon in the jar habit with peanut butter!

Homemade salad sounds yummy!
