Rainy days

Today we had 100% chance of rain, and not just for an hour or two like normal Florida storms, no, it was going to rain from 4 am until who knows when. In fact, I think it is still raining as we speak. So both plans to go to Disney and my long run have been postponed. I will run my scheduled 6.2 miles after work tomorrow, and we can go to Disney another day.

Since it was raining, we figured it would be the perfect day to watch movies and relax. We ended up watching “Christopher Robin,” and we all enjoyed it a lot. It was light hearted but emotional all at the same time. Afterwards, we played the Disney version of Monopoly and I am proud to say after a several hour long game, I won!

 

Lastly, we cooked a simple Sunday supper. Pork loin that was cooked low and slow in the sous vide, and a broccoli mash (see recipe for my cauliflower mash but use a head of steamed broccoli instead and parmesan cheese vs. Italian cheese), and my daughter made us arugula salad with radish and mushrooms.

 

Which brings me to my thankful part of this post:

  1. Dinner with my family. As busy as our lives get we almost always try to have dinner together, especially on Sundays.
  2. Rainy days that force you to stay in, and having quality time while doing so. So often we get caught up with our faces stuck in our phones. This weekend has been nice and I’ve been mindful of not being on my phone so much.
  3. The fact that my husband has gotten on board with healthier eating. He was cleaning out his closet tonight and found his “fat jeans” (not that he was ever fat) and I am so proud of how he’s embraced eating healthier and exercising more.
  4. Sleeping in on the weekends. I don’t sleep very well, I never have, so I love that I have the weekends (especially when we’ve got no plans) so catch up on the little bit of sleep I get during the week.
  5. Wine on Sunday evenings to calm me down for Monday morning. LOL. I just had to add that in!!

Have you watched any good movies lately? What’s your favorite board game? Does your family eat together in the evenings when possible?

 

Cheers!

Michelle

  2. Soundsl ike you had a great day in spite of the rain! We haven’t watched much in the way of TV or movies lately because we don’t want Baby V to be staring at screens. But this means we have been playing more board games together. Our favorite is Settlers of Catan 🙂
