My weekend started right after work yesterday. SB and I met early to exchange Christmas presents and catch up before book club. I ended up with some cute things. I will be testing out my Philosophy White Ginger here shortly. I use them sparingly so they last as long as possible. SB is the best at finding that one of a kind upcycled piece that is just so unique, this year it was this pincushion….
I liked all of my presents from SB but this was my favorite. Book club was fun. I picked the book this month and none of us liked it. It was good for SC, who is new to witness this. Not everybody likes the book you pick. In my case, I didn’t even like it. We did a good job of staying on topic for a change. If you read my blog then you know the book, I am not going to trash someone’s first attempt at a book. Someday a book club could be discussing mine?
I didn’t eat anything at Panera’s, I just had coffee. I weighed myself at work yesterday and I gained three pounds…..holy cow! If I gain more weight by next Friday this experiment won’t last the whole 21 days. The cook at work tonight did not have his big batch of sauce brewing so it wasn’t so bad. I didn’t even try and dip something in sauce tonight, I just put a little bit in a bowl and ate that like soup. We were really slow tonight and I lucked into a five top. I made $32.00 and twenty of it was the five top, I only had three tables tonight. I was home by nine so it wasn’t bad at all.
The girl and I are trying to make our list for tomorrow tonight….we are hoping for motivation. I put ‘look for artichokes’ on the list midweek and I went to our Italian store and they didn’t have any. I finally found some at Giant Eagle…one artichoke was $4.99….no way. So I still have a craving and will until they come in season I guess. I payed almost $3.00 for one tomato which is crazy I know but I can’t bring myself to purchase produce from Mexico. It’s hard to eat fresh when you live in Ohio during the winter.
They just gave us the winning numbers for the powerball on the news. All three of us bought a ticket and we didn’t have a single number between us. I hope whoever wins does something good with their money. It was fun to dream while it lasted…..Zia
