I can’t believe the weekend is already over! Summer is flying by.
Yesterday, Jon and I spent most of the day cleaning. Thankfully Jon offered to tag team it with me…and it still took us over 3 hours! We did the hard core, twice a year kind of clean. The whole time I just kept envisioning how great it was going to feel once it was done. And it was so worth it. I love waking up to a clean house! The only downside = it can only go down from here:(
Here’s a glimpse of our freshly cleaned crib;)
living room (and Olive’s tail end:)
living room, dining room, kitchen (and again…Olive’s tail end:)
dining room and kitchen
and last, but not least – our bedroom
Of course we took food breaks throughout our day of torture cleaning
green beans (click for recipe) from my step-dad’s garden.
Clark – if you’re reading…I need more green beeeeaaaannnnssss!!!!
leftover salad minus the veggie burger this time
Whole Soy blueberry yogurt, raw oats, Kashi U and fresh blackberries (the star of the show)
And dinner – leftover tempeh spaghetti sauce over whole wheat pasta. Sides = ezekiel bread w/earth balance and garlic + swiss chard and chopped pattypan squash sauteed in olive oil, garlic and a dash of lemon juice
Dear beloved green beans, you may now have a new green rival.
We got up and went to early service and Sunday school this morning. I took a green monster to-go (running late of course:) and drank it during the service.
For lunch, we were both craving pancakes for some crazy reason – here’s what I came up with!
I used Hodgson Mill Buckwheat pancake mix, which includes 1 egg (organic free range of course) and 1 tbsp of oil
2 cakes layered with plain Whole Soy yogurt + fresh blackberries
makes my heart go pitter patter.
I need not explain how delicious they were.
The rest of my eats today were very random. They included things like bran flakes and soy milk, tons of watermelon and more leftover green beans. hehe.
That’s all for today friends. I’ve gotta be up and at ‘em early because I have a 9:30 am orthodontist appt. on the other side of creation (ie my hometown). Hoping to get in a run first!
Hope you all have a great start to your week! Thanks to all who entered in the chia seed giveaway! Winners will be announced tomorrow!
How do you and your significant other handle cleaning? Do you tag team? Or is one person usually in charge? Last year while I was teaching and commuting, Jon took care of almost all the housework (swoon). But now that I’ve got more time, I have taken back over a lot of it. While I don’t love the actual act of cleaning…I do love keeping my house and making my husband HAPPY:) Plus, I LOVE the feeling of a spic and span house.
