Monday Afternoon


Because I am sure you are all dying to know what I do on a Monday afternoon…

Here goes!

After I drop Lily off at preschool, I usually take my big, drooling mutt for a walk.

Here I am after an hour and ten minutes of brisk walking in 31 degree weather.

Jan 16-1

Very much ready for a warm coffee treat!


Grande Vanilla Latte with nonfat milk…Ahhh!

Then, because I have almost two hours to kill (I would just go home, but we live too far from town and I can’t justify wasting the gas), I usually run my errands or find a place to park and work.


Today I parked at the waterfront so I could enjoy the frigid lake view.



Tuned into my FAVORITE station…Sirius XM The Bridge…yeah…I’m that big of a dork.



My MiFi and Kindkle Fire, ready to get down to business. (On a side note…I think that the bus driver parked across the lot from me thought I was nuts…taking pictures of myself, my lap, the water…)



Oh yeah, if you look at my reflection, I still have my hat on, and kind of look like a thug…in a minivan..haha!

NUTS, I tell you! Completely NUTS!



So…I lost my hat and chugged my caffeine.


After I finished answering emails and making a few Shaklee calls…



I ventured into the natural food market to look around. There is some AWESOME stuff in there! I hadn’t been in a long time…but I am going back again soon!  It is the perfect place to find gluten free groceries. Next time I may take my camera…I feel a blog post coming on…



Here are my scores.


After the market, I picked up both kiddos and headed home to make some homemade veggie soup.


Recipe to come tomorrow!


So there it is…What I do on a Monday afternoon.




  1. yum! Can't wait to see your soup! :) I love reading your food posts! :) Your blog looks great!

  2. Thanks, Erin! I still have to do my tabs and a few pics in my sidebar...but I'm getting to that...haha!

  3. You had me at waterfront and Starbucks!! ;) I think that that is a perfect morning! I do that almost every morning, go get my Chai and off to the beach to see what is going on. You look adorable in your hat, not like a thug. :)

  4. California lawmakers tried to negotiate a deal on sports betting in 2020, but it didn’t work out. So this November, voters will have the chance to weigh on two totally different initiatives that would legalize sports betting. In our pattern of normal gamblers, the overall proportion of PPGM-designated problem gamblers was 7.62% (95%, CI 6.97–8.33).


Exploring the Upper Peninsula...and a Few Yummies

I am going to make this short...because I am desperately trying to be more intentional with my time.  Spending less of it on my phone or com...
