I feel like I have had this post waiting to write for the past two weeks and alas I am just now publishing it. I would love to be the person who blogs every day but I am not. The past few weeks I have felt especially unmotivated to blog I think it’s winter. It’s not cold here it’s just dark….dark when I get up to run, dark when I leave for work, dark when I get home you get the picture. That combined with rain gets me down. This week started out differently and we have had weather in the 50’s and SUN!!!!! I am sitting in my classroom right now, don’t worry I have an in-service, basking in the glorious sun. It is shinning it’s warm rays on me….loving this. I am going to share a bunch of photos of what Dave and I have been doing with hopefully more to come. To say we have been busy has been an understatement – last week I tutored twice and taught my last night of night school and Dave had multiple 6am meetings….this week we were both home by 5 one night glorious:) Here’s some pictures and we will update soon.
Breakfast this morning – overnight oats in an empty peanut butter jar. Last night I put in 1/2 c oatmeal, a little bit of pomegrante keifer, soy milk, and chia seeds. I mixed it up along with the leftover peanut butter and let it sit in the fridge. It was delicious. I also made homemade peanut butter granola this week using this recipe.
Leftover soup from dinner last night for lunch today. Dave and I both brought a container to work and I have 3 in the freezer. This Spinach Tomato Orzo soup made a lot but was easy and delicious.
Lastly Dave and I have been trying to decorate our house. We finally moved our living room furniture to our upstairs and have new living room furniture. I will post that once I get a picture with decent light. I have been crafting and made the W wreath below. I am also doing a painting but I am still working on it. A little trial and error but I will post it once I finish.
To make this I bought a cardboard W and then wrapped it with gray yarn. The W was a little awkward so I had to hot glue some lines of yarn on. Then I had some leftover off white felt from a Christmas project. I cut out three circles. I then cut around until I had a small hole. I was able to wrap it up and create the flower. I glued those on as well. The bow was the hardest part and I initially made one and then scrapped it. I actually didn’t tie the bow but instead hot glued two separate pieces. This will be hanging upstairs so now I am looking to make a wreath for our door. Looks like a good project for this weekend. Happy Friday!
