No Heat for Us!

Well, the maintenance guy came out and looked at our heater, and our motor has locked up, which is what caused the burning smell. We have to get a new motor, which won’t be here until Monday or Tuesday of next week – thank goodness we have a propane heater upstairs and a few of those electric heaters! 


At least the weather is supp0sed to be pretty nice the next few days (in the 50s and 60s), so I’m hoping it won’t be too bad. You may see a few more hot drinks in the next few days on here  :)


Starting with some green tea!  I was a little chilly this morning, so I made a cup of this while waiting for the heater man and working on laundry.








This was really good – I like citrus flavored green tea, and it did a good job warming me up!


For lunch, I had a taco salad, aka big bowl of veggies!





This bowl had:

  • between 1/3 – 1/2 cup fat free refried beans
  • 1/2 chicken breast, diced (it’s in there, I promise! You just can’t see it)
  • 2 cups chopped romaine
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1/4 avocado, diced
  • lime juice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil


I heated the beans and chicken in the bottom of the bowl, then added the rest of the veggies cold and drizzled on the juice and oil.



Since we’re home for the rest of the day, we decided we’re going to go running this afternoon.


So – I needed some fuel  :)


Thanks to Jenna’s pictures of this, I finally made one for myself!  Now I know why she has it so often –  it is so good!


This snack starts with this beauty:





Add a sliced and halved banana, and you’ve got a powerful snack   :)





I think we’re going to run a few errands, go for a run, shower, go to dinner, and then head out for a church group thing tonight. 


Dinner recap might not be until later – you’ve seen this meal before, but I sure am looking forward to it today!!!  :)


Woohoo – it’s the weekend!
