Shephards Pie

Brrr Baby! Despite the unbearable cold temps I kicked some serious household chores' butt today. I started the day with grocery shopping even though it was so cold out my tire pressure light was on the entire time. Yikes. I still drove the car but lets not tell Christopher. Once home in my slightly warm house I really got to work. The bathrooms are all cleaned from top to bottom, bedrooms vacuumed, beds all changed, laundry is washed and folded, dogs bathed and I even jumped on the treadmill. If only I motivated like this everyday. Dare to dream. By the the time Christopher came home dinner was on the table and the kitchen was cleaned up. I'm officially done for the night. Yeah! I even ate healthy today which I think calls for a reward. Like a foot massage.

I SO love Shepherd's pie! It's one of Nick's absolute favorites.
I got my foot massage today (at the spa) but really did nothing to deserve it.

@ Paula
A foot massage sounds like heaven. You totally deserved it for everything you do for everyone else.
