This is somewhat amusing to me, because a couple of months ago, I got tired of telling people I was tired, and I saw this book
at Barnes and Noble, and ordered it online to see if it would help me. I looked at it a bit, and there was quite a bit about diet and exercise in it, which was interesting, because I am already doing that. Anyway, then it sat around, in a very visible place, and the last couple of weeks I have gone by and noticed it and said, hmmm, I’m not tired any more. I wonder why I thought I needed that book? Well, this weekend I have been tired. Pretty much all day, both days. Oh well. Fortunately I have the luxury of doing pretty much what I want to do. I just couldn’t make myself go to the gym, although I planned for it both days. So the only exercise that got done was a couple of walks with Noah. He seemed a little tired too, LOL. Which is really good. Because when he has a lot of energy and I don’t. Well, worlds collide. He seemed pretty happy to lay around the house with me. My little boy is growing up.
So movies. There’s been a bit more movie watching going on around here. A new season of The Dog Whisperer came out on DVD and I’ve enjoyed watching that. Its good to see that there are dogs worse behaved than mine.
Today I decided to lay on the couch and watch ‘Marley and Me.’ Sophie was so excited. I NEVER lay on the couch any more. She promptly took her place on my lap underneath the quilt I was working on. You all know that movie, right? Yeah. I know. I’ve been doing ‘Noah and Me’ for months. But then when I saw how bad Marley was, it made Noah seem like a saint. And then, of course, you know what happens at the end. And I am just laying there crying my eyes out. And Sophie poked her little head out from under the quilt to see if I was okay. It was so cute.
When the movie was done, I let Noah back in the house. OMGosh! It was like he had taken Marley lessons. Getting into everything. Jumping on furniture, counter surfing. And then I couldn’t find him. I looked in the closet, one of his favorite off-limits spots to explore. Then I heard something. He was UNDER my quilting table, which is clearly too small a place for him to fit into. I don’t know how he got in there. I’m not even sure how he got out.
Hey, I did do one blogworthy thing this weekend. I made up a new recipe. I had some blackberries that I had picked myself (did I tell you they’re growing by the gym pool?) and I knew they were not going to last much longer. So I had the idea of making some Blackberry Oatmeal Crumble Bars, healthy style. I am pretty darn pleased with the recipe. Not too sweet, which is the direction I am trying to go in with my ‘baked goods.’ And a little protein added in. I looked around on the internet for ideas, and then decided to start from my Apricot Oatmeal Bar recipe and adjust it from there. Here’s what they look like. The recipe is over there on my sidebar. Which, BTW, I know I need to organize and clean up. Eventually.
