As I mentioned in my last post, Memphis is in the middle of an early season heatwave. That meant it was definitely an indoors kind of weekend.
Except, of course, I didn’t stay indoors. That would have been too smart.
Saturday morning I was up and out early for some yard sales. Find of the day:
I needed a “nice” multi-purpose chair that I can move around the house easily, and this one was only $8. At that price, I decided it was perfect. I can recover the seat later. Way later, probably.
That was my only find as it was already getting too hot at 8 a.m., and I decided to bag it for the day. I had things that needed doing at home anyway, most of which were deferred eventually since they were outside projects. I did attempt to tackle a few crafty-painting projects (a small table, a cute little shelf, etc.) because I could sit out under the tree and do that. I didn’t seem to comprehend that it was still going to be extremely HOT.
Midday, I realized a Home Depot run was in order so off I went for more paint and some gardening supplies while I was at it. Great idea! I needed to be hauling bags of topsoil across an asphalt parking lot at high noon. Sheesh. After that, I noticed I was feeling “swimmy-headed”, and I realized I’d had about 200 calories all day. That’s a problem I have sometimes in hot weather–I don’t think about food, and I forgot my morning snack! Time for Emergency Measures:
I had this salad when I was traveling in March and a couple of times since, and it’s quite tasty! The nutritionals aren’t horrible, and I didn’t have to prepare it. My only real quibble with it is that the pecans are sugared. Totally unnecessary, although admittedly delicious. But kudos to Wendy’s for serving them separately. It’s nice to have options! I had counted the full meal as ~350 calories, but I see now that they omitted the feta cheese! That’s got to be about…30-40 calories saved right there!
Properly nourished, I headed home and
took a nap painted some more, then decided it was “cool” enough (93°) to get in a walk. It was ugly, but I got it done. And I met my new love:
I don’t know what kind of Audi that is, but I’m smitten! I’ll never own one, but I shall have fun (and get fitter) admiring it as I walk by.
Today was a rest day, and I took full advantage of it! I have a phone interview for a j-o-b tomorrow a.m., and I am feeling re-energized and ready to face the week! More on that and other assorted happenings in my world as the week unfolds. For now, I need to check in and see what happened on YOUR weekend!
