Happy Sunday

I made a double batch of banana oatmeal muffins this morning, using up some overly ripe bananas. They turned out very well.

I just finished up a 3.5 mile run, and I had no energy. I felt like I ran 7 miles. All I can say is that it's done. I blame all of the yard work I did yesterday. Pulling up ivy takes it out of you, and I had no gas in the tank this morning for a run. C'est la vie. No rest for the wicked.

Here's the plan for the rest of the day:

  • Vacuum
  • Clean the bathrooms
  • The kitchen is a disaster, so clean that
  • Laundry
  • List an item on eBay
  • Have the boys call my parents
  • Work on the ivy again
  • Evening walk
  • M is making grilled chicken, sauteed green beans & some sort of potato for dinner. Yum.
  • Read by the pool & chill
And, taken from my daily list, today I'm grateful for:
  • New recipes to try
  • Making progress with the ivy in our yard 
  • Having enough energy to work out. With lupus, this is something I try to never take for granted

What about you? What are you up to today? 


  1. Today the rain finally stopped, but it's a bit chilly. Dinner plans are steaks on the grill. I scrubbed bathrooms yesterday, and today I damp mopped the floors. I am sitting with a cup of coffee, trying to decide if I want to head to our study to work on a craft, bake something, or capitalize on the fact that no kids are on their computers trying to get work done, so I could watch Netflix.

    1. You sold me on the Netflix with the weather description. Particularly if it's normally hard to stream with people underfoot & leveraging the bandwidth.
