TwiceToddlers (No More) and Day Nineteen of 60 Day Slimdown

The wind is blowing to and fro today. Rain is supposed to come down in my city as well. Is this a typical Spring day in my city, well yes, yes it is. If we have no rain or wind, how will the crops grow? Rain is important for crops, don't you know. With the wind and rain, it tends to keep my family indoors.

You might be thinking, what does this have to do with today's the 60 Day Slimdown? Well nothing at all. I just thought I would tell you about my weather today.

Let's see, for breakfast today, I made another Strawberry Smoothie. This time, it tasted sweeter than before. I do not know why though. I mean, I added the same amount of sugar as before, the same amount of strawberries as before, the same amount of yogurt as before. So, I do not know what made it taste sweeter..but it did not bother me because....I have a sweet tooth anyway...

As it came time for lunch, I was looking at the menu and decided to make a Raspberry Salad. I made it for one, because I like this salad and two, because I do want the lettuce to go bad. It looks like I have enough lettuce for three more lunch meals. This is the best, in my opinion, lettuce to eat. The leaves are green than iceberg lettuce. The greener the leaves, the more healthier it is for you too.

While I was eating lunch, I listened to Fighting for the Faith with Chris Rosebrough. He and one of his guests were talking about the author of Love Wins. If you want to listen to the interview, click here. I will not give my opinion as it has nothing to do with eating my lunch. I did agree with the interview though.

Today was my Aunt's 60th birthday, so my Aunt and Uncle came over. My twins love Auntie Leenie and Uncle Mike. When my Aunt came over, she brought my sunglasses with her, two old fashioned dresses, two old fashioned chairs, an old fashioned photo, an old fashioned clothes washer. I will be using these when I take old fashioned photos of my twins. I still need a few more items: old fashioned telephone and two porcelain dolls. I am looking on eBay for the items, but I will not pay over a certain amount, plus the shipping and handling charges. I did purchase this awesome old fashioned trunk last week, on eBay. It was restored by the owner's and has two storage shelves in it. I LOVE it. What I am going to do is replace the Old Fashioned photos I had taken of my twins when they were 13 months old, with some new photos I am going to take of them at five years, four months old. I have always loved Old Fashioned photos. Since I love taking photographs, especially of my twins, this was a no brainer to me.

When dinner time came around, we all went downtown and ate at a local diner. They had chicken wrap on the menu, so I purchased that. So, I was within the realm of a meal on the 60 Day Meal Plan. Although, the Chicken Wrap is a lunch meal. This is the closest I could come to a meal from my 60 Day Meal Plan.

For a desert, I made my Aunt a mini Strawberry Cake. I have those mini cake pans I purchased from a mass retailer. The cake mix fit into five of the cake pans. The pans look like mini bundt cakes, minus the hole in the middle.

Here are some photographs I took of my Aunt's pre-** Birthday, enjoy and I will talk to you tomorrow! Hope your weather is alright where you live. God Bless!
