Monday Chit-Chat

I took Tally for a nice long walk this morning, here's me in my sweaty, endorphin induced grinning state.  My speed and endurance continue to improve.  I actually wore my girl out, she went back to bed.  I'm going to get some house cleaning done, which has fallen by the wayside since going back to work.

Rob and I are on track with our saving for our move plan and of that I'm very proud. Our timeline is still on schedule but there is a wind of change on the moving front but I'm not ready to divulge just yet. 

I've got a beauty spa day on Friday with a manicure, pedicure and massage lined up so I'm really excited about that!

My birthday is Saturday and we've got dinner plans with friends. We're going to Local Three. It's been 10 weeks since I've had booze in any way, shape or form so I think I might enjoy having a cocktail or two that night. But I'm not sure about wine because I got a severe headache from some sulfites that got past me in pomegranate vinegar and fear drinking wine may incapacitate me. 

My sister is coming to town for the weekend to visit a friend of hers who lives an hour or so south of here so I'm heading down on Sunday to spend some time with them. I'm heading up to Boston next month for two weeks. I'm really looking forward to spending fall in New England, which is better than anything I can conjure.

So that's all the news that is fit to print.  I'm feeling great, I'm rested and I'm going to make Monday my bitch!  What's new with you?


  1. Andra, I'm trying to train myself to like sweet potatoes, and I'm also trying to wean myself off of most grains (not all, though). So I'm thinking about trying your sweet potato hash--do you have a recipe? If you found a recipe online, how did you modify it?

  2. Argh, blogger is doing something weird so if I post this twice I apologize. I'm trying to get away from oatmeal in the mornings (reducing the amount of grains I eat) and I'm also trying to train myself to like sweet potatoes. Do you have a recipe for your turkey sweet potato hash? if you found it online, what were your modifications?

  3. Ro, you will not regret getting away from grains! Hash is real easy, I saute a chopped onion and some diced celery in ghee or coconut oil until tender then add a pound of ground turkey meat and cook until no longer pink then add large grated sweet potato and cook until the potato is tender. Doesn't take long when it's grated. I season with poultry seasoning or pumpkin pie spice depending on my mood. It is so good with a poached egg on top!
