Today it’s R’s birthday which means we will have the same age for the next 6 months. Did you know we were both born in 1968 and exactly 6 months after each other? I was born on May 22 and he on November 22. We don’t celebrate our birthday for the past couple of years, instead we always go out for dinner together. I bought another Groupon (2 for the price of 1) for the same restaurant where we went on my birthday. We will get 2 appetizers followed by a 7 course dinner.
Sunday morning my Mom and my MIL will come over for coffee and pastry to congratulate him, but that’s all we do.
I will get a different Beebox as of next week. They have a new one: the low carb box. Now I’m not eating low carb but I like the content of this box more. It has the same fruits and veggies in it but I now get a bread and often potatoes every week. In the other box that is replaced with eggs, cheese and meat for 1 dinner every week.
After my footpain earlier this week (which is over now) I decided to buy good walking shoes yesterday. I had already planned this but at the end of this year. I bought them now because I think my cheaper walking shoes caused the pain. I will use those for the shorter walks with Bella on weekdays. The new ones I will use at the long walks.
And we finally bought a new freezer this morning. My freezer broke down about 6 weeks ago and R. couldn’t fix it. This is not something I like to go shopping for but I started missing it more and more. I often have leftovers that I had to throw away because I couldn’t put it in the freezer. I have a little one above my refrigerator but we use that to store bread and meat for the coming week.
Beebox content week 47:
Pears, spelt bread, apple/strawberry juice, apples, garlic, broccoli, rocket salad, pumpkin, Chinese cabbage, mushrooms, shanghai pakchoi, sauerkraut, leek and potatoes.
My foot hurted when I got out of bed and I thought about not going. But decided to go and give it a try and I have to admit it went pretty well, my foot wasn’t bothering me during the run. I had to cut it a bit short because I miscalculated the route and was back home before I was done.
