Not a bad Saturday...I mean Tuesday


   

     It is hard to think of Today as Saturday although technically for me it is. I may have to make Satuesday an official thing. So tomorrow will be my Sunday (I have no cute name for that....yet). I  guess it's good thing  that I was never a fan of Sunday Brunch...doubt any place would accomodate me on a Wednesday ha!

     I had a pretty simple yet productive day. I finally put Christmas away which is something I always hate. Around here, people believe that having Christmas up by New Year's is bad luck. However, back home you have to wait for the wise men to come on Jan 6th. Growing up, I didn't really care  since it wasn't my job to do. But now, since I am all for avoiding this task, I just tell everyone I have to wait for the men to stop by. I am sure some people wonder what that entails lol

     So, I had to get all the empty boxes from the shed and get everything back down and put in place. Here's a pic documenting some of it:
                  

     A couple hours and several boxes later , I was ready to move everything back to the shed. There it will stay until it's time to start all over again in a few months. Of course, once you do all that there is bunches of glittery crap and bits all over. Of course that end up in you needinb to clean lol. I swear sometimes (read most times) adulthood sure takes all the fun out of things and makes every task longer than it needed to be!

     I spent a couple of hours cleaning the house. It is sparkling clean but my back  was a tad achy after. With two fur babies in the house, it is hard to keep it neat and fur free. After I finished, I curled up with some coffee and a book to relax for a bit. Later on, I made a few more freezer meals for the work week (yay for planning and preparedness!!) and headed out for a walk. It sure has gotten chilly out, I love it!  I really want to give the couch to 5k a try again soon. I am hoping this time around I will make it past the second jog....bless my heart.

       I stayed pretty active for most of the day and my food was well within my calorie budget. Sadly, I didn't get to Zumba but I will tomorrow for sure. Until next time, I leave you with some food for thought:

  2. It was very nice to come here and read about your un-decorating. Your box looks neat and tidy and will be at the ready in a few months to do all over again. I de-trimmed on Monday and was blessed to have a friend to chat with over the phone while I packed things away. It made the time speed up but I could not run the vacuum until we said goodbye :)
