I love rainbows — have ever since my friend Michelle and I did a science fair project on them back in the fifth grade. (We got a second-place ribbon.)
This rainbow, spotted on my way home from work for my dinner break helped make my day just a little better.
Why was it bad? Well, I went shopping.
Now, normally a shopping trip would be good news. I haven’t had money to shop in a long time, and I love to shop (more than I love rainbows, actually). But today, I had to buy clothes in a bigger size.
Not exactly what I’m aiming to do here, is it?
I guess it’s a good thing to have some comfortable clothes that fit. I’m actually wearing one of the new pairs of capri pants right now. But I hate, hate, hate having to buy them in a larger size.
There’s not much else I can say on that subject, so I’ll move on to my fairly healthy (and quick-to-fix) dinner.
Couscous is great. Cook some up, toss it with a few other ingredients and you have a homemade, healthier version of Hamburger Helper.
Tonight’s dinner involved a serving of whole wheat couscous mixed with leftover salsa; mushrooms, corn and onion sauteed in a skillet with a sprinkling of taco seasoning; and a Morningstar Farms spicy black bean burger.
It tasted better than it looks, and I think it looks pretty darn good! It was colorful and packed with flavor.
I’m still getting ready for my trip. My shopping trip was one thing I had to do. I also did a couple loads of laundry. (Exciting, I know.)
Perhaps more importantly, at least for my faithful followers, I’ve been writing blog posts that I can set up now to publish while I’m gone. You probably won’t be getting one a day for the entire two weeks I’m out of town, but I’ll try to publish on a fairly regular schedule.
I’ll also try to post short updates on Twitter, when my cell phone gets a signal. (Apparently I may be signal-less for a few days.) You can follow me here.
