January has sure been a month of ups & downs weather wise. We have had some warm weather then, cold, freezing rain/sleet/snow (though not much). Here we are at the LAST Friday in January! What will February bring?? Until then, let’s give a High Five For Friday.
These were my 1st attempt at those delectable chocolate covered strawberries you see everywhere, this time of year. I was going to make them closer to Valentine’s Day. But what the hey, there’s no time like the present! They tasted pretty good…
One of my co-workers is such a wonderful inspiration, when it comes to health & fitness. You can visit her awesome blog at www.thewhitedish.wordpress.com She often times has news of what she has been doing to keep fit. One of the dishes she has been talking about is quinoa. She inspired me to try my own version of quinoa. This is roasted red pepper & basil (that I doctored up just a wee bit). It was all good & healthy, though. This was a delicious dish & truly a much needed break-thru in my substandard regular diet! (See chocolate strawberries above, which is fruit, so, in reality, it could be classified as moderately healthy. I said could be…)
My favorite cleaning service was in the house this week. Not only does he sweep, he cleans the toliet, empties out my cabinets, throws lots of stuff in the garbage, & can dust the coffee table in his socks. We may or may not tell his parents about all the great things he does each visit. That way, they may or may not let him keep coming back.
On the drive in to school & work one morning, saw a rare sight. Little bit of sunshine.
So excited about my 1st 5k of the year. It will be at Jay Bird Park. My friend Jen said she was gonna get us signed up. Can’t wait to get out there & begin racing, this year!
I hope everybody’s week was good. If not, there are still a few more to go in 2013! I will be linking in with Lauren from my grey desk. Come on over to the link party! We always have a fantastic time!
