Monday morning

Really good day yesterday here ! Started the day off with steel cut oats , barley and wheat berries cooked in the crockpot. I put pumpkin in it and skim milk for the cooking, but I do not think I will repeat that. Pumpkin is fantastic in rolled oats on the stovetop, but becomes rather bland with steel cut oats in the crock pot. Still a substantiall filling way to start the day, still tasty, but there are just better ways to do this in my opinion.

The guys went off to church services, and I was left with some wonderful quiet time that allowed me to do some girly things and research the best ab work options for me. It seems I hit on a winner with the bicycle cruches. I did 20 of those, did 20 minutes on my bike and then the guys came home. We had a lunch of lo carb flat bread wraps with turkey breasts and loads of veggies in the wraps and on the side. Clemintine oranges completed the meal- they are so pleniful and tasty right now !

We went out for a walk after lunch and then came home to relax. Hubby and I splurged at the begining of our vacation on the complete series of Friends DVD's , and we have been watching these when we relax. The strange thing is we never really watched the show when it was current, but kept catching it in reruns on evenings when there seemed to be nothing else on. It is kind of fun discovering some of the long term jokes and stuff watching the entire series.

Today hubby goes back to wrok, we still have a week off from school , so I begin to give the apartment a good drrp clean. Some may moan about this, but I really like cleaning ! Lots of full body movements and you are left with a place that feels brand new.

Boy, wouldn't it be nice to just hire someone to do the necessary dirty work ? Someone who does a great job and will work for coffee and conversation ???
