On Friday our supervisor bought lunch (well the company did) for our team as a farewell to Ja-Nessa. Free lunch is good, Salsarita’s (like a Moe’s) makes it even better.
Speaking of food, I’m fat. I’m nearly 220 pounds and am the largest I’ve been in my life.
Although I won’t post Jim’s info without consulting him, Jim is fat too. Weight Watchers? Atkins? My friend, blogger and fitness guru Norma recommended I purchase “The Eat-Clean Diet For Men”. I did. Immediately.
So far I like the way it’s laid out although I haven’t read much of it yet. I hate to read put I think this is going to keep my attention. The format of this book is ingenious. It feels like a magazine with articles through out and lots of high resolution photos. I think the diet is similar, if not the same as “The Caveman Diet”… basically eat only natural stuff. This is gonna be tough. BUT no calorie counting. No points. I know there’s no easy diet. Trust me, I know. What I do know is how I’ve fooled myself into thinking that I can be healthy just by losing weight. Diet X allows me to eat Twinkie’s, icecream, etc. What I wasn’t realizing is what’s in those foods. Luckily Norma points out all of the SHIT that’s in our food. I just hope the book is spot on about what it says.
Thursday night we packed for Augusta. Friday I left an hour early from work, packed up the car, picked up Jim and off to Augusta we went. We stopped at a Harris Teeter for some subs that Jim had ordered in advance and then drove to a rest area and ate our dinner at one of the picnic pavilions. Later we arrived at the resort, unpacked, relaxed and then socialized. We haven’t been here since early September. The weather will be upper 40’s at night and upper 70’s by day.
Jim was in the mood for prime rib so for lunch on Saturday we went to Outback with a $10 off lunch coupon. Naturally we found that they didn’t serve prime rib until 4pm. Oh well. I was totally creeped out in this place. All the blinds were closed and it felt strange to not have natural light coming in when it was abundantly available. I had this really strange feeling. It felt supernatural. That’s all I’m saying.
The rest of the day we napped, relaxed, etc. Using a Living Social coupon, we went to Red Bowl Asian for dinner. We started with the Red Bowl Ultimate Combo (For 2): Potstickers, Crab Wonton, Crispy Chicken Egg Rolls, Grilled Chicken Satays and Thai Jumbo Shrimp. I had Bourbon Chicken and Jim had something he saw on their website, Pineapple Gai Pan: Sliced chicken breast stir-fried, sauteed with snow peas, bamboo shoots, carrots, baby corn and pineapple chunks in our home-made light sweet & sour white wine sauce.
Above/Below: One is from the website, one isn’t. Which is which?
We both thought our entrees were a little lackluster. I would still go back though because there’s so many other things to have there and I liked their ambiance.
Jim did a couple of projects. He lined our white trash deck bottom with weed block (I’m too ashamed to snap another photo of it but it’s that pallet he rebuilt a month ago). He hung the valance of over the doorway. When the door is used for the bedroom, the top has a big gap (the way it was designed) at the top which allows too much light in from the shower’s skylight dome. This totally sucks for naps. We bought a clearance valance and Jim Grandmother altered it when she was in town. Now the gap is covered. Let’s nap to celebrate!
I bought a new light fixture for the bathroom. 12V fixtures are way overpriced but I got this from an eBay merchant:
Friend’s Gene and Winston finished their deck and roof-over:
That’s our rig next to them.
Well, that’s all I’ve got. Dasher is very tired of typing:
