Happy 1st of May! This is my birth month, so things are happening! Last night I went on a grocery run and picked up crawfish, corn ears, little red potatoes. You know where I'm going with this! I had myself a good crawfish dinner last night! Even better, the crawfish that I bought is from Louisiana and the company there spiced it up and cooked it. UGH. It was spot on! I found 3 lbs bags of the crawfish at Walmart for $11. I bought 2 bags!
For more info on the Crawfish I cooked with, visit www.ricelandcrawfish.com/crawfish-products.html . Today's blog post is not sponsored and it is not an ad! I share good information as I come across it! I highly recommend you to try the Spicy Hot Boiled Crawfish if you can tolerate spicy food! It is so, so, so good and it takes me right back to my good memories from when I was in New Orleans and Slidell, Louisiana.
I also couldn't walk out of Walmart without picking up some gelatin-free cheesecake! I picked up a 12 slice platter. It is always a favorite when I get it. I haven't had it in a year or more! I also bought Breyer's Reeses Ice-cream and that was a regret: it was way too sweet. One teaspoon full was like eating a sugar casserole. Yikes!
Yesterday, I started the process of de-cluttering my house. I try to make this a habit after every semester ends to go through my house and find things to toss out or donate. I have books finally posted for sale on eBay and I've tossed a ton of note papers into my recycle bin. It's insane! I've held on to my Anatomy and Physiology notes from 3 years ago and finally tossed those into the recycle bin yesterday. My spiral notebooks followed. I adjusted one of the shelves in my desk shelving unit and now my books can stand up straight!
I still have plans to go out and get some bike riding done, time permitting. I really want to get this house organized and get rid of stuff before I consider going outside just yet. Doing these things help give me a fresh new start to a new semester and helps clear my head.
During this brief break time from Spring Semester, I've been sleeping a lot. I sleep in until 11am-12pm most days! I am trying my hardest to sleep in daily just to give my brain a rest from the rough semester it just endured. Intense rest like this helps get me geared up for the upcoming semester. Works every time! Doing this also greatly reduces burn-out for me.
I got invited to go to a formal event this week, so hopefully I'll be able to take pictures to post on here. It's going to be exciting!
Have a happy Tuesday!
