Positive Turn Around

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!
