Oct 21 . . . a Wednesday

I did not sleep well at all last night. I wake up for a few hours in the middle of the night and then end up sleeping in in the morning. I am really getting tired of this, because it is keeping me from being productive.

I managed to get up to begin reading some emails and I found some from Tara and she had sent me the first graphics for the advent devotionals. I wrote about this in another blog post. I immediately had tears welling up in my eyes when I saw the one of Abigail.  I had a good crying spout that made me almost late for work. 

As I put each of them onto the blog post with the corresponding graphic, I had a emotions going up-and-down happy and sad.

I had to print out a few of the layouts and the graphic at work and then showed some coworkers. So I put the photos up on the board at my desk. This will  become my little memorial for the next few weeks as her life is celebrated November 2-8.

For lunch I decided to finally drive to and try Cape's first food truck. Firsts always excite me. I don't know why I get so excited about them. So I had fun.

I got the corn and a chicken taco. 
The street corn has a spicy mayo with chopped cilantro and queso fresco crumbled cheese.
I don't know why I have never thought of doing something so fancy with corn. The cheese did not stay on real well and I had to plop it back on top, but that did not matter because it tasted delicious. The taco was a little small, but then again not, and it didn't matter because it tasted great and I got full. The guy told me that he is a professional chef and wants to make his food extra good to beat the competition that is coming next year. So apparently there will be more food trucks next year.

It was such a nice day out that I insisted we have a patio party. Hubby had stuck the frozen lasagna in the oven and we ate dinner outside. I managed to write two more Advent devotions. It made me late for going to the cleaning job, but I felt I got something done today.

Then we started a fire and watched TV on the laptop outside.  We did well not having any snacks. I need to stop eating so much. I am gaining weight and my knees are hurting because of it. I need to change my diet back to things better without starch and bread. I just do not feel is well eating noodles and bread.
