Happy Tuesday! How are you doing? I feel busy â€“ but good. Itâ€™s always hard to pull things together after a fun weekend, right? Monday was rammed, but Iâ€™m hoping that my late night efforts put some breathing room in our schedule today.
Itâ€™s so nice here! I know some of you are still experiencing winter, but spring has sprung here in the South. Thank goodness â€“ this Miami girl had just reached her maximum intake of winter weather.
And this weiner dog is pretty pumped, too.
Speaking of the pups, I used the Furminator on James yesterday. Thatâ€™s how I know itâ€™s really spring â€“ when James starts shedding his winter coat all over the house.
This was Round 1 of furminating. I usually do twice or three rounds before itâ€™s all off. And trust me â€“ you MUST furminate outside. This tool is absolutely essential if you have a dog that sheds and actually want a semi-tidy house.
And lastâ€¦ but not leastâ€¦ a delicious bowl of soup and a crunchy salad.
I somehow pulled myself together long enough to make Nicoleâ€™s Super Soup. Now I have my lunches planned for, oh, three or four days? Love this soup.
It smells so good when cooking, too!
Okay â€“ one more random spring-related side note. I am trying to expand my shoe repertoire lately, i.e. not wearing my gray Chucks all the time (not that Chucks arenâ€™t worthy of being frequently wornâ€¦). I got rid of almost all my shoes a few weeks ago because everything was outdated, worn out, uncomfortable, or I just wasnâ€™t wearing it. So Iâ€™m building my shoe collection from the ground up (which is pretty fun). Anyway, I really want a pair of wedges for warm weatherâ€¦ I like these shoes a lot but WAY outside of my price point. Or maybe something with a little more platform in the front? Any suggestions? Please go shopping for me! Heh.
Off to a swim/bike double workout. Wahooooooooooooooooo!
