Mike's Minestrone Soup

Mike's Minestrone Soup

The forecast for Saturday was so gorgeous; we decided to do some replanting of the plants that were killed in the winter freeze. Calm, 75, and Sunny, that was the beautiful day we were working with. I dressed in my sweat suit and by the afternoon I was getting hot as I repotted plants and did some heavy lifting of those big pots, moving them back in the house from gardening central.

We stopped for lunch which was Mike’s Minestrone Soup. 

Then we went back out to finish up the work. Mike went to the store to buys some more little plants for his project, and while he was out he stopped at the local bike shop where he saw a deal on two used bikes. Well, he had before 5pm to make his decision. So he came home and told me about it.

As I was wrapping up the gardening, Mike had made me an Orange, Pineapple Smoothie. After I had a chance to relax a bit, we headed down to the bike shop to take a look at these bikes. I thought this would be great to get some biking into my exercise mix. But when we got there, the bike was not what I was looking for. I wanted a Beach Cruiser bike to take leisurely bike rides through the neighborhood. So Mike bought his bike and we went looking elsewhere for a beach cruiser for me. After checking out a couple more bike shops, we hit Sears where we found a beach cruiser for me. We’re picking it up wednesday! !!!

In an effort to be totally upright and in some to virtually no pain New Year’s Eve, I stayed in bed as much as possible Wednesday and then on Thursday…. I needed to pick up some things for our big night out to The Kennedy Center.

So, Mike had some business to do and I took his son shopping. He got some stuff and I got the stuff I wanted, we did some window-shopping. Amazingly enough, we had some fun together. We followed our big day up with a late lunch and early dinner at the Olive Garden. I got my usual Minestrone Soup and Salad. I did manage to eat three Bread Sticks. 😦

Later that night, while I retired to the bed and heating pad, Mike enticed me with some Sherbet…. which was great!!!!
