I love it when a day I think it going to be bad ends up turning around to be good. And thankfully most of the ones I assume will be good turn out good too!
I didn’t have high hopes for this day. I stayed up until 3 am doing nothing and then slept through my workout. Our evening plans got rained out. My baking was a disaster.
But somehow things turned around. The batter I got to lick off a spatula wasn’t half bad.
My bosses surprised me at work with a giant birthday basket.
This was so sweet and a definite factor in my mood change; I was very touched.
And my birthday gift from my in-laws arrived as well.
Among other things, they sent pictures from our visit to the Outer Banks.
Adam’s family takes a picture in front of that sign every year and I felt very special that I got join the tradition.
It’s impossible to be in a bad mood when you’ve got birthday presents to open. And good food doesn’t hurt. Cereal for breakfast.
1.5 servings of Special K Cinnamon Pecan and 1 serving of All Bran Bran Buds with Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk.
Salad (or a salad-ish dish) for lunch. I topped spinach with peanut sauce, leftover pesto pasta from last Saturday, a sliced Jazz apple, sharp cheddar, and buckwheat groats.
This odd combination was super delicious.
You know I broke into the popcorn in my gift basket the minute I got home.
That bowl had two servings. I really wanted more but instead I distracted myself with a big plate of baked green beans.
And it turned out that they were even tastier than the popcorn!
My parents come to visit tomorrow, so that’ll be a good day too!
