I swear Iowa’s weather drives me crazy!  It’s in the 50s again and so windy the last few days!  It was 45 mph winds a couple days ago and I thought I was going to blow away.  I really try not to complain about whatever weather we have (except for winter weather) becos I know it will change.  But I tell ya, this Thankful Thursday post, I am complaining about the fluctuating temperatures.  I want the 70s to get here already!

1.  Our baby girl came out from the city on a weekend evening after I got off work as her husband was visiting his best friend in town.  She took the opportunity to come visit with us since we live just 3 miles from his friend.  Of course I stayed up an hour and a 1/2 later than usual and altho I was a little tired at work the next day, it was worth it 🙂

2.  Mister stopped by for a quick hello on his way to get some fishing done this past weekend.  Work was (still) a bit slow, so that made the time go by just a bit faster.  And as always, we like to see each other whenever we get the chance.  #goldenhighlight  He came home with a “future” yummy dinner for us too 🙂

3.  They tell us the construction on our parking lot will be done by the end of next month.  I will be truly grateful so we can have lots and lots of travelers stopping by, therefore making my 10 hours fly by at work!

4.  These are the only flowers I could find in our yard this week.  After some research on Google, I found that these are called grape hyacinth or Muscari…they’re such pretty little petite things and seem to come up every spring!


Thankful Thursday


On the Fitness and Nutrition Front

5.  I got some Turbo Fire workouts in this week along with Kathy Smith’s Power Walk ones.  I’ve decided to work on my triceps – aka bat wings – so I’m slowly working into some weight lifting.  The Sculpt and Tone workouts just about did me in….THAT’s how long I haven’t done resistance training. So yes, I did drink some P90X Recovery Formula this week lol

6.  I’ve never made rice pilaf in my life, but I did this week.  It turned out pretty yummy.  I found the recipe in one of my Hawaiian cookbooks.  I think I will be trying more recipes from those wonderful books!
