^^I listen to a lot of murder podcasts and I am very nervous about how I would be described if I am ever the subject of one of these, haha.

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was lovely. Lots of relaxing, but we also had some "adventures" (well, what counts as an adventure in 2020, anyway). We went to the zoo lights on Friday night, which were INCREDIBLE! Here is just one pic, but I have thousands. I will add some more on Friday :)

Then Saturday we went on the hunt for some good farm stands on the South Shore where we live. We didn't really do much research-we just threw some addresses into the GPS and went where it took us. It was a beautiful day and a fun way to explore. Then yesterday we had dinner in a friend's backyard. It was fun but really chilly so I drank way too much wine to keep warm. Whoops.


QOTD: Has someone here on OH recommended a product or recipe that you love? Someone who is no longer a regular poster recommended FitFrappe to me, and it's my favorite protein shake! I am so grateful to whoever that was :)

Morning! We also had a nice relaxing weekend. We drove an hour away yesterday to get soft serve ice cream. It was worth it, even if I had the child size and still didn't eat it all. We only have a couple weeks left until our beach vacation. My brother is coming and I have been sorting through old pictures/things my mother saved so I can create boxes for him and my sister to take. I need to work on that before he comes so he can take his home with him.

QOTD: Emiepie's egg salad with cottage cheese! I never make it without now. It adds protein and "wets" it enough that you don't need much mayo at all.

My Food:

  • Coffee w/ Cream x3
  • Ham & Cheese Roll Ups, Veggies
  • Shrimp, Brussels with Bacon

Wow! That photo is amazing, can't wait to see more on Friday!

JB, I also spend far too much time thinking about what the crime scene people would say! FX starts a new series this week on the Jeffrey MacDonald murders, supposedly to prove he's innocent. Fatal Vision is the first true crime thing I remember watching/reading and we talked about it in 7th grade English class for days (also happened with The Day After). I'm very interested in this series; I've been listening to the "associated" podcast called Morally Indefensible as well.

QOTD - I saw Built Bars on Erin's menu; I tried shaved Everroast Deli Chicken based on DCgirl's menu and I can't remember *****commended using premier instead of half and half in my coffee (the first two are very much part of my core rotation and I need to get back to the 3rd!)

I broke down and went to the doctor Friday afternoon, was glad I did -- definitely an infection in my lymph nodes...and by Saturday morning, I looked this Baron Harkonnen in David Lynch's Dune on one side of my face. Two different antibiotics and a lot of rest (15 hours on Saturday!) and I'm feeling better and starting to look a lot more normal, still painful although not as bad.

My first meeting today isn't until 730 so I'm going to go for a nice walk this morning before logging on and I have a hair cut this afternoon. It's just a cut, not a color, but I'm going to see what she thinks about adding a few purple or pink highlights when I go dark for the winter.

Menu today is

coffee X 3 with half and half

B - one of those 1 pt muffins

S - Light and Fit greek

L - 1 slice Dave's Killer Bread with 1 tbs PB

D - falafel (I really need to make this, I've had it on my menu for a week)

S - built bar

Have a great Monday and killer week, everyone!

I was mesmerized by the Jeffrey MacDonald murder case when I was young. That happened right around the time we moved to NC, I think, so it was all over the news. I read the book Fatal Vision and loved it. I was totally convinced of his guilt, but of course I may have been swayed by the author's opinion. That series should be interesting!

I just checked - the murders were committed in 1970, so we still lived in Ohio then. We didn't move to N****il 1976, so the trial must have been going on then (it said he was finally convicted in 1979 - and I was still living in NC then, too....)

None of the grocery stores near me sell Everroast! I found it once and it was delish!

Do you have Sprouts there? I've found the boars head brand there pretty reliably.
