Dolly's Day

By dollydoug

Holiday souvenir

Another lazy day.  The weather today was cold and windy with no sunshine at all so I wasn't encouraged to go out. 

For Tiny Tuesday I have blipped the earrings I wore today.  I bought them in Freeport, Maine in October 2018.. I always like to buy items of jewellery when I'm on holiday so that when I wear them they will bring back happy holiday memories ( that is especially necessary at the moment). These silver earrings remind me of a lovely day spent in Freeport with my blip friend justbe . We shopped in LL Bean, looked in all the little shops around town, had a meal in an Italian restaurant and stayed the night with one of justbe's old friends.  You can read about that day HERE

At 6pm I joined in with my Slimming Group Zoom meeting.  There were 10 of us this week including two new members.  My weight stayed the same this week.  I'm OK with that. 

I was going to ask the group for any tips on what to do with quinoa but the two new members obviously needed a lot of  " airtime " so I didn't get the chamce to ask.  I found  a box of quinoa in my cupboard the other day when I was having a sort out.  I obviously bought it on a whim.  I've never cooked it or eaten it before. This evening I just used it as a rice/pasta substitute and had it with some bolognese type sauce,.  But if anyone has any nice healthy recipe ideas for the stuff feel free to share ( not using it cold in salad though as that doesn't appeal to me ).

Steps today - a measly 2,668
