Excuse me while I dust my shoulders off. I walked for 25 minutes this morning. TWENTY FIVE MINUTES. Thatâ€™s a long time for this fifteen-days-post-partum lady. It made me feel quite accomplished â€“ maybe I can work up to 30 minutes soon.
Another accomplishment? I showered, cleaned the kitchen, and made dinner. I positively felt like a Mommy Superhero afterwards.
A yummy mix of:
Red kidney beans
Corn salsa (from Trader Joeâ€™s)
And wine. Just a splash. Thatâ€™s all I need to feel like a Mommy Superhero these days.
It was Robert Mondavi Cab Sav. We actually visited the Robert Mondavi winery in Napa on our honeymoon â€“ itâ€™s a glorious winery.
My drinkinâ€™ buddy came over, too. Nicole is an excellent baby whisperer.
Just look at this happy face. Iâ€™m pretty sure she was covered in drool by the time she left.
The four of us â€“ Nicole, Henry, the Husband, and I â€“ enjoyed dinner and drinks out on the deck. I think everyone in the South is probably trying to soak up this last bit of decent weather; all the news reports are abuzz with the impending heat wave.
Perhaps my 30 minute walk will have to wait a weekâ€¦ or two. I may melt otherwise!
