It was Chris' birthday yesterday and he wanted very much to go to our local Dinosaur BBQ, as he hadn't been there yet and he is a man who sure does love BBQ.
I ate decently light yesterday knowing we were going out to BBQ, didn't drink beers when everyone came over to our house to hang out beforehand (though I did put a little bit of kahlua in the coffee I was drinking!).
Dinner was pretty decent, as far as trying to eat well: I ate catfish on a bed of vinegar simmer greens, maple whipped sweet potatoes (which I only ate 1/3 of), green beans and mushrooms simmered in a garlic butter. Not light, but not the worst I could have eaten there, and I had room for it in my day. I'm pretty pleased :)
I feel almost 100% this morning, as far as the sickness goes... more like 85%, but still better. I am glad my body was healthy and strong enough to not let this cold take hold! I could feel my body fighting it (the glands swelled for a day as the immune system kicked in and then everything was on an upswing!).
I am resting in bed, writing this this morning, and going to rest for maybe another half an hour, but then it is time for a good long dog walk after a breakfast of eggs with spinach and tomatoes.
Everything else is kind of quiet and normal around here... and I like it. :)
