Chim Chim Cheree

A couple of days ago, we received a letter stating that a chimney cleaning guy was going to be coming by (our apartment) place sometime between 9-5pm. Since they were unable to give me a shorter time frame and we would have been given a fine if we wouldn't allow them to come in without us being home, I took a vacation day from work.

I got so much done while waiting for them. I finished all the laundry, dishes, dusted and vacuumed the house. I'm glad I waited, because we now have a clean fireplace (though, we keep it pretty clean ourselves).

After they left, I met the hubs at his new (newish) job and got introduced to his co-workers. They all seem so nice! Then, I went to the grocery store. What a mad house! I can't believe that someone stole my cart with some things in it! It was pouring rain outside, and I think all the people forgot how to survive with other people and started acting crazy.

By the time I finally got home, it was lunch time. I treated myself to a toasted open faced PB&J sandwich with some chips. YUM!!!

It was a crazy, windy, wet day today!!

After relaxing for a little bit, I made these great granola bars!! This is the best recipe! Nice and chewy!! I put chocolate chips, dried cranberries, almonds and ground flax seed in them. Everyone needs to try this recipe!!

Hubs just got home and it's almost time for our left over chicken burritos for dinner. I still haven't even showered, yet.


  1. Way to go...a productive day it sounds like! Those granola bars look delicious, I'll have to make them soon!

  2. Those look really yummy! Glad you had such a productive day--it always feels good!

  3. Oh my GOD those bars look awesome! I don't allow myself to keep peanut butter in the house. I just get out of control. lol.

  4. What a busy day! Good for you!!!

  5. Those granola bars look delicious! I'll have to try the recipe.

  6. I could use a productive day like that! And we do need a chimney sweep... We don't use our fireplace but a big part of that is cause Ive never had it looked at in the 4.5 yrs I've lived there (and who knows when the owners before me ever had it cleaned/etc).

  7. That sounds like quite the productive day!

    FI, the link to the granola bar recipe seems to have broken. Is it just me?

  8. great looking bars! Don't you love it when everything is clean at once?!
