high five

Phew. This weekend was super productive! We got so much more done than I thought we would. And we didn't even really kick it into gear until Sunday!

Saturday we called our "planning" stage. Which mostly meant that we slept in, cleaned the house, drank decaf coffees outside in the sun, picked up supplies for our projects, and took the doggies for a nice long walk around the lake. Yum. It was such a great day.

With all that rest and hangin' out time, we were ready to go on Sunday! We started two major projects: 1. unclog drains with industrial sized snake. 2. put sealant on all the brick. And we finished both of them and even trimmed a bunch of shrubs around the house! What a day. We were exhausted by the end of it, but it was so worth it.

We've also embarked on a new life project starting today. It includes exercise and eating less. Doesn't sound like much fun, I know. But we are dedicated (so far) and have even decided to stop eating meat. So, we are looking for new recipes, counting calories and going to the gym 5 days a week (gasp!). We'll see how long this motivation lasts. We are going to squeeze every last drop of it for at least the next month. Our goal: lose 10 pounds. Wish us luck!

Anyone know any good Tofu recipes?

  1. You're back! I missed you. :)

    Sounds like lots of great stuff going on. I'd like to say I know some great tofu recipes, but that would be a stretch!

    Big hugs to you both!
