I started out the week in true retirement style. Spent Monday morning refreshing my knitting skills and my afternoon quilting. You would think I'm actually receiving social security and Medicare. Sadly, I am not. I think I'd be more into knitting if we actually had a need for knitted items here in Atlanta. But as I type this it's over 80 degrees. I need to find my summer clothes and work more on losing this winter weight.
Tuesday started off with me acting a little closer to my age. I slept late, shopped, opened a new checking account, worked out, and dinner with my mom at one of my favorite restaurants (Henry's). This is what a week off should consist of!
Onto the highlight of my week: Wednesday. When I made a dish that I have been wanting to make for forever! Creme Brulee! I bought the needed blow torch during Tuesday's shopping trip. I couldn't wait to make all my dreams come true. I used the Pioneer Woman's recipe that I had previously pinned. In true to her form, it was DELICIOUS and using the blow torch was fun! I now want to make things just so I can use it more often.
To go with the best dessert ever, I decided to make another pinned recipe: Angel Chicken. While I'm not a huge mushroom fan. I have to admit it was pretty amazing. The chicken was so moist and tender it fell apart without the help of a knife. Definitely a dish I would make again and again. Did I mention it's probably the easiest dish to make as well, crockpot all the way!
Now unfortunately, Thursday was more of a true adult day. It consisted of way too many things car related: oil change, tires rotated, balanced, cleaned and vacuumed. Ugh, the fun of being an adult! Why do I not live somewhere where a car is not needed?
Today has been a hit or miss kind of day. I spent the evening looking for some new work clothes, now that I am RID of the horrid uniform! Woohoo, but dang there aren't many sales going on. One sweet deal I got was on this dress for Easter/work- 50% off!
Sorry I've been MIA this week, as you can see I've been a little busy enjoying my retirement. I have a busy weekend ahead of me and then I'm starting new JOB! Say a prayer for me!
