Moving my blog

I’ve been ‘playing’ with Blogger, and think I really like it better.  So I’m moving my blog over. I’ll leave this one up. I tried to move my posts, but it wasn’t very cooperative. The new blog is at http://the5thdecade.blogspot.com/. I’m also going to try to post more often.

My Favorite Salad

My favorite Salad has been named the Worst Salad of 2009 by “Men’s Health, Eat This, Not That” . No more salads at Friday’s. May as have real food.
15. Worst Salad of 2009

T.G.I. Fridays Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad
1,360 calories
Fat: unknown (The company refuses to disclose the nutritional content of the food they’re serving you.)
Sodium: unknown

Turns out Friday’s monster salads aren’t much better than their burgers. Six out of the seven we analyzed topped out with more than 900 calories, which means that lunchtime can be the start of something big—namely, your belly.

Bathroom Re-do

I’d bought new ‘stuff’ for the bathroom a few weeks ago. Today I finally got around to painting an accent wall.photo

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

This was an Oprah book club pick, but I didn’t like it. It was slow in the beginning, slow in the middle and slow at the end. I kept reading because I kept thinking it would get better.  It must appeal to some people, but not to me.  Next, Scarpetta. Which I’m pretty sure I will enjoy.

Finally finished my drapes

I started re-decorating my bedroom ages ago. Bought the bedspread and drapes. But my top window is odd, so I had to alter some of the drapes to fit it. Did the first one ages ago, but finally today did the second one. And got my 8′ ladder out of my room!

Nancy Drew

I loved the Nancy Drew books as a 12 (or so) year old. Read them all. So I decided to watch the movie on DVD.  Really, really corny. Now I’m thinking about going back and reading one of the books again to see if it was as corny. Or if the movie just didn’t translate.
