Cool Weather

Went for a nice bike ride today. We are having such nice, cool weather. It's hard to sit in the office all day. Work should be canceled due to great weather!

Yesterday, I had insulation installed in our attic. I think the original stuff was all that was up there - from '57. I hope it helps keep us cooler this summer. The a/c guy was here today for the seasonal check. It looks good so when the heat wave hits...we're ready.

I cooked last night and tonight. *gasp* I can cook, I just don't get the chance very often. My mom likes to cook but she's been sick for about a week now but is beginning to feel better. I made pan roasted brussel sprouts Monday night and tonight I cooked eggplant. I like just about anything fresh. She likes frozen veggies in a cheese sauce. I don't like the fake cheese sauce that comes in those frozen veggies, plain frozen is okay. I think veggies taste best with just a little olive oil and seasonings. But, to each his own. For now, it's veggies my way. Mom has issues with germs and she never thinks anyone is as clean as her. I just try to ignore her issues - they are not my problem, but they do create some anxiety sometimes.

Have a great day today and don't forget to drink your water.


  1. I don't like the fake cheese sauce either :) Have a great one!

  2. Work should be cancelled ... period. lol

    Yeah, I'm with you ... the fake cheese sauce is pretty gross.
    Yummm... those brussel sprouts sound good. I've never tried roasting them before.

    Hope you're having a great day, Tena!

  3. I just started eating frozen veggies over the last year out of convenience. I always had fresh before. I stock up on them and now have them when I don't have time to run to the market.

  4. Thank you for the reminder to call the a/c people. :)

    I agree, companies should give a day off now and then for good weather.

  5. Germs, germs everywhere!

    It's a darn good idea to take off from work and *fill in the blank*

  6. Sounds like you're feeling alittle better then your last post. Yick on the cheese sause. Fresh wins every time.

    Have a good week.

  7. Heh. I think I like fake cheese sauce...Because if it has the word "cheese" I must like it...Though I don't think I've had it...?
    If it gets too hot down there for you Tena, come to Newfoundland! ;) We rarely need a/c inside...
    Hope all is well with YOU.
