I work at a private school for mostly privileged kids. They spend their Spring Break in some pretty exotic locations. That's great for them, and as bad as I hate to admit it, I guess I get a little jealous. I would love to be able to jet off to some place like Greece and spend the week looking at gorgeous men and relaxing by the sea. But I digress!
My break will be spent here at home doing some around the house handy-man chores and working in the yard, which I love doing by the way. Maybe a little shopping and cleaning out the clutter. When you work all week and try to fit in exercise and healthy eating it's hard to fit in the handy-man stuff. So this week I'm planning to get these things done:
1. Change the fan pull in a ceiling fan
2. Re-grout the tub
3. Plan some menus for the week
4. Put pictures in some frames that have been sitting around empty
5. Ride my bike everyday
6. Go through my books and donate what I don't want
7. Go to Central Market and cruise the healthy foods for inspiration
8. Go to Ikea (love this store)
9. Watch movies
10. Finish knitting a baby blanket (I started a year ago)
We'll see how much really gets done. Time flies when you're home and some days just being home is good enough. If I was wealthy and didn't have to work I don't think I'd ever get bored.
Last night we had a delicious meal from the Clean Eating magazine that is looking pretty beat up about now. We have made almost every recipe in that thing and they never disappoint us! The Lemon-Artichoke Chicken and Roasted Zucchini Fries on page 53 of the Jan/Feb 2009 issue is fantastic! Lemony goodness! We will be having that dish often.
No riding yesterday due to the wet nastiness we're having along with 40 something degrees (F) weather temps. I did the Wii Fit for some fun exercise but miss the riding. It's the only thing that makes me feel good. Walking and stepping makes my knee very unhappy.
Have a great weekend everyone! Eat your veggies and drink that water!
