Productive Day

I had a productive day Tuesday.

Here’s what I tackled and accomplished:

Went to the post office to mail my taxes.   They are done.   And I got a small refund.

Did laundry and changed the sheets on my bed.  I hate changing sheets because I am a stickler for good, tight, hospital corners on my bed and it takes time to get them just right. But it’s one of those tasks that just has to get done frequently. 

Went grocery shopping for some produce staples.

And yes, I cleaned my own lettuce again rather than buying bagged.   It saves me money and is fast.  Under 3 minutes or I wouldn’t bother.

I bottled a fresh batch of homemade kombucha.

And I sampled a glass.  Perfect.

I went to paid work.  I had a ridiculously long day.

I ate a salad with Orange Spice Vinaigrette dressing which is a quick dressing to make with the juice of an orange, some oil, and agave/maple if desired.

Plus I added Sesame Ginger Maple Tofu

And for Dessert, I made some Dark Chocolate Fudge Balls (No-Bake, Vegan, GF)


From my previous post, it was fun to hear what has made you look on the bright side of things lately.

And I am glad that most of you seem to be optimistic, glass half full types.  Not every single day is a peppy rah-rah kind of day, but our outlook on life has so much to do with how we in turn feel.  I could go on and on about this.  My undergraduate and graduate work was in psychology, so I’ll just stop now so I am not writing a dissertation.  Oh wait, that’s Katie’s job right now. Major props to anyone who’s had to write one of those!


1. Anyone nursing a hangover or have any Going out on Fat Tuesday stories you’re dying to share?

I worked, so no, I can’t help you with any hilarious shenanigans.  See this post for some, though.

2. As I mentioned, I changed the sheets on my bed.  How often do you change yours?

I aim for at least once a week, but probably about every 5-6 days.  I sleep so much better with clean sheets on.  Sounds crazy, but true.

3. What did you do that was productive yesterday or today?  Or this week?

I also worked out.  My usual 20 minutes of cardio + 20 minutes of at-home lifting/yoga/core moves.

It’s all about keeping things streamlined.  I don’t live in the gym, or have time, energy, or the desire to.  Getting my workouts in and done. Now, that’s my idea of being productive.

  1. This whole week has seemed long so far, lots going on at work and plenty of home tasks.
    1. Nope, it was a quiet night of shopping, eating and exercising.
    2. Once-a-week during the winter, more during the summer since we tend to sweat more.
    3. Worked, went grocery shopping, worked out and housework.

  2. There is nothing better than crawling into freshly cleaned sheets while wearing freshly cleaned PJs… one of my favorite little things in life!

  3. okay, don’t laugh or gross out but we only have one set of sheets. So i have to wash and put back on in one day, so we aim for every other week. Don’t tell my mom. haha!

  4. Jealous that you are done with taxes, I am still working on ours. Hopefully tomorrow I will be done!!!

  5. Yay, I’m not the only one that loves tight, military-style sheets!! I tuck our sheets in so firmly and Dustin HATES it, he’s always ripping out his corner. And it annoys the shizzle out of me!!! :evil: I love when sheets and blankets stay in place, cannot stand sloppy beds! But Dustin is an obnoxious sleeper and always, always crinkles his side. My side is perfect, even when I wake up. ;)

    YAY for getting a refund!!!! That is AWESOME! Love hearing that.

    I buy about 75% of my lettuce greens whole and not in bags because the bagged lettuces are always so iffy. I hate finding mushy, wilted lettuce in them. It grosses me out. I find that whole heads last much longer on average and are usually better quality. Now, I only buy bags of washed kale because it’s so firm and usually 98% beautiful inside and lasts WEEKS; tubs of baby spinach, and mixed lettuces ONLY if it looks perfect inside. If I see one spot of wilt from the outside package, I put it back. Wilted, mushy lettuce is a major pet peeve of mine and why I am the only one who can buy proper lettuce; I don’t trust anyone else in the house to do it correctly, lol!!

  6. I sleep better with clean sheets too … I like doing laundry :-) I just hate folding it or hanging it up!

  7. I got a lot done at work yesterday so I guess that counts as being productive, right? We do sheet every Saturday. And I think it’s a pain, too. Esp with 3 beds to do!

  8. I simply want to mention I am just new to blogs and certainly loved you’re web blog. Most likely I’m going to bookmark your blog . You amazingly come with great well written articles. Thanks a lot for revealing your blog site.
