How I'm feeling: was on my feet a bit more today so I'm feeling a bit more pain than yesterday but still not so bad
|hoodie, fleece leggings, blue fuzzy socks|
What I wore today: white tshirt and jeans with hoodie to the store... then I changed into a my new hooded sweater (after the mailman came and that package from zulily finally got here!) I changed from jeans to my fleece leggings. Fleece leggings are the best thing since sliced bread.
Hairstyle of the day: it ain't purdy. frizzy and wild. tried to tame it with a ponytail when I went into town but it was still pretty out there. I should have straightened it after I washed it yesterday but I just didn't want to be bothered. I'm going to have a few bad hair days in a row because of it but... eh... who cares?
Makeup: mascara and chapstick. I was not looking my best. Then this old fella tried to pick me up in Ingles. He struck up a conversation about the prices in the bakery and followed me to the chip aisle. He followed me to the cookie aisle and on down toward frozen food. I was zigzagging trying to (politely) lose him and then finally faked like I was married by dropping a "husband" comment. Look... he might have been a nice guy but seriously, I'm not interested in any fellow so desperate that he's picking up strange women in the the grocery store. Call me picky.

What I watched today: A lot of C-Span Book TV, some documentaries I had recorded on the DVR and Saving Private Ryan. I'd never seen Saving Private Ryan before.
What I'm reading: Almost finished with the Arnold biography. Been reading this blog because the girl has a really unique sense of style. I started back at the beginning of her blog and read through three years.
What I ate today: breakfast was grits, biscuit and gravy and smoked sausage. When my dad retired (last week) the folks from the cafeteria in his building gave him a basket with grits, eggs and smoked sausage because that was what he had for breakfast every day. For our midday meal I made stuffed shells - three pans worth so we have lots of leftovers. I also had stuffed shells for dinner. They were really good. I used a ground beef/spinach/ricotta cheese/parmesan cheese mixture to stuff. It was a lot of work but it was worth it and... it's the first time I've cooked all week.
What I drank today: hot apple cider and Bolthouse farms berries and carrot juice. I need a juicer.
Where I went today: I went to Ingles this morning around 8:30. It was much colder than I'm used to but I wanted to make the stuffed shells so I needed to get the stuff for it. I also picked up some of the snacky stuff I like to munch on - you know, Little Debbies, pringles, bagel chips, carrots and hummus - most of it not healthy. I'm working on it. Avocados were on sale so I got stuff to make tabbouleh with tomatoes and avocados. That's healthy.
What I did today: Went to the grocery store, made stuffed shells, read a blog, played Farmville2, cuddled with my kitty
Visitors to the Hollow: Austin's friend Sean came over and brought Austin a projector for his xbox. Gamers.
Thought for the day: Fleece leggings are the best. I can't emphasize this enough.
