It is a great day 8 here for us. Hubby was given good news by his ENT today. He has gone from restricted to light duty. Still no lifting or bending over but he is now allowed to do light housekeeping. He is allowed to go to the gym but only to walk the treadmill slowly (No heavy breathing allowed) and he can do some strength training with super light weights. We decided to wait on going to the gym then until he can work out like he is used to. We might just have to do walks around the neighborhood instead.
I got a manicure today. It felt good to just relax and let someone wait on me for an hour. I can tell I have been stressed a bit lately LOL.
Hubby and I went out to lunch at an new to us restaurant. After that we went to Hobby Lobby to pick up a couple of things. Then off to Barnes and Noble to pick up a magazine I wanted (thanks Sandra!) and then we went to Great Clips for us to both get hair cuts. We are now all purty and are ready to just kick back for the rest of the day/evening.
Tonight's dinner is in the crockpot:
I know, it doesn't look like much in this photo. But it smells divine. I still need to make some rice for it go over. Here is a peak at the recipe:
Super easy to make. I love crockpot meals and will be making another one for tomorrow's dinner.
I was asked what a 'white' sweet potato was. Here is the story. When we went to the nutritionist, we were told sweet potatoes were wonderful for us and to replace spuds with them. Then she asked if we ever ate sweet potatoes. We of course got all pumped up and said of course we did and we eat them often. Then she asked what color the 'meat' of the potato was. Found out.................orange meated potatoes are really yams. Here is a photo to show you the difference:
