Day Thirty-Eight

Calories: 1567

A glass of wine tipped me into the 1500's, but it was a deliberate decision. I don't want to stop drinking my red wine -- I really enjoy it, and it's good for my heart! But it's 89 calories a glass....

I mailed my three packages yesterday for a total of $28. I scored free parking when I pulled into a space with a meter still running! I had 12 minutes to go in and out of the post office, and I made it!

Then I went to the bank and deposited a $3 check from Franzia. I think it was a rebate.

Today I'm going to the south side of the city to visit the Oriental Institute with a bunch of friends. Afterwards, we are going to a nearby restaurant. I've already checked out the menu, and decided I will get the skewered chicken & vegetables.

Before I go, I need to get a few tasks done -- a load of laundry, clean the fish tank and VACUUM -- desperately needed -- why do I put it off so? It's not like it's really hard!

The jeans I wore yesterday were kind of settling lower on my hips than they used to. I am feeling better in general. I feel trimmer, even if it isn't real obvious. I hope by the time real spring weather comes I'll be able to get rid of some clothing that is too large.

The other day I picked up a coupon someone had dropped, and I think I will use it -- $10 off the purchase of two bottles of Layer Cake wine (which I like) and any meat item. The wine would be good to take to my brother's next time I go.

I saw a good movie yesterday on xfinity on demand -- the Sundance channel -- it was called City of Your Final Destination. It's a Merchant/Ivory film that didn't get good reviews, but I enjoyed it! Maybe my standards have slipped, now that I'm always seeking out free movies. It was about a young doctoral student seeking permission to write a biography of a famous writer, but it was a character study and and love story, too.

I still have the two movies from the library to watch and they are due on Saturday, I'd better get to it!

I noticed this morning when I opened my Greek yogurt that its use-by date is today. I know I can still use it till a week from today, so I guess I'm going to be eating a lot of yogurt this week. I looked it up, and apparently I can freeze it, too, though it will change the texture. Not sure how I would like that, but I can always mix it with fruit or preserves. Has anyone here ever frozen Greek yogurt? Mine is plain, by the way.

Iggy update -- he yowled again last night, so the ears weren't the problem. I suspect he is just mouthy.

    I've never frozen Greek Yogurt, but I imagine it might taste pretty good ... maybe blend it with a banana and coconut milk ... Smile
