Spring is in the Air

February 12th, 2015 at 11:12 am

I have two glorious signs of spring today. This is one of the flowering cherry trees blooming in the high school parking lot:

and this is in my gutter garden with garlic coming up:

Today is my 45th birthday. It is also the birthday of Abraham Lincoln. I have always loved that I share a birthday with one of the greatest presidents this country has ever had.

It will be a low key day here. I haven't even decided if I am going to make a cake or not. I am doing so well on my diet I am concerned what suddenly adding sweets back in might do to it. I like having lost those 15 pounds.

I think I will go and pick up some steaks at Trader Joe's, though, instead of sticking to the meal plan. I wasn't thinking about my birthday when I made it out. I think a nice rare ribeye would more than make up for no cake.

    I think the steaks are a great idea. My birthday is soon and I am asking for berries for dessert. If you have avoided sugar for a while (I have, too), it's a shame to sabotage ourselves. Happy birthday!

    Thank you, everyone for the birthday wishes!

    Oh, and despite my better judgment I had a small slice of cake, but it didn't seem to affect me on the scales. My family just didn't think we should go without cake. So maybe I can get away with sweets once a week. But I'll keep it towards honey and not sugar in the future.

    Oh, and DH and I decided we would go out without the kids on Saturday afternoon for an early surf and turf dinner as a combination my birthday present/Valentine's day date thingy.
