All the time in the world

14 Mar

Happy day light savings everyone! This hour difference is seriously messing me up so I will be happy once I get used to it but until then, I feel like I have too much time on my hands.

I woke up at 730A this morning and started the day off with my new Trader Joe’s Diner Blend Coffee

Delicious as always! I don’t want to think about what I’m gonna do when I move and won’t be able to just walk over to Trader Joe’s. Sadness ūüė¶

And I despise Sundays, they are my least favorite day of the week. But one thing that always makes it a little bit better is a big breakfast!

I made scrambled eggs and added milk to them, I can’t believe how fluffy they were! I rarely have regular milk on hand so use a little butter or just the cook up the eggs alone with some spices but wow-it made a world of difference!

I topped them with half an avocado and toasted some Earth Grains whole wheat bread and topped with Trader Joe’s Superfruit Spread. Yummy!

I also had leftover potatoes I made the other night

That killed a good half hour of my time so I made a batch of granola bars that I made a couple of weeks ago. This time I added raisins and more coconut.

And that took about 45 minutes.

All there is on tv on Sunday in the morning is churchie¬†stuff or political shows so I was quickly going crazy. It was sunny and a little chilly out and needed to get out. I decided to pack up, grab Lincoln and go to Freedom Park. Freedom Park is a huge park in Charlotte with great walkways, trails, tennis courts, etc. It’s more near the Uptown area so I don’t go that much but wanted to move a little and I am sure that Lincoln wanted to socialize.

He was a little tired at first

But finally woke up and was ready to go to the park!

 

It was a perfect day to get outside!

We walked around for an hour and hung out. I haven’t been to Freedom Park in awhile but was quickly reminded why I used to go all the time. Fun little fact, a few scenes from the movie Shallow Hal were filmed at Freedom Park and most of the movie was filmed in Charlotte.

We were driving back and saw a Rita’s Ice and immediately pulled over—I love Rita’s and didn’t know they have them here.

I got a Cherry and Vanilla Gelati which was fantastic!

Is it wrong that I love that my normally hyper dog completely passes out after we go in the car?

And now at home –look at his little tongue sticking out, hehe! I’m such a sucker for this dog.

I have nothing to do and it’s only¬†2:30P so I think I will follow Lincoln’s lead and nap it up.
