Friday Happenings


Hello friends and family! I thought I'd share with you what is going on at Robyns Simple Life this Friday... As a side note I've been thinking maybe I need to change the name of this blog to Robyns NOT SO Simple Life because my life is anything but simple but then again, I do try, and live my life as simply as I know how. Hmm, on second thought maybe I should just leave things alone. You know the old saying, if ain't broke don't fix it.. moving on..

This morning I left the house about two hours after the butt crack of dawn and ran to the local Food Lion as I needed to get some chicken, some cheese, green onions, and coffee creamer for my Mr.

After that I came home and headed into the garden. I haven't been out there in like four days because I was sick . Shame on me. You need to be in your garden every single day checking on things. As I expected, the tomato plants are growing  a little wild so I pruned them and put some more ties onto the stakes as they are getting taller now. We have two baby tomatoes coming out and more on the way!
Then I weeded the garden beds and picked some romaine and red leaf lettuce. 

Next I turned my eyes to the snap peas that seem to have grown over night!

I will cook theses beauties up tonight for my Mr to go with his fish.

Then I took a boneless, skinless chicken breast and fileted it and put it on the grill with some BBQ sauce for my Mr.'s lunch.

He's been working so hard on building the chicken coop so I wanted to make him something filling for lunch but also healthy. The salad has romaine and red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, grilled BBQ chicken breast and feta cheese. Then I just sprinkled some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Healthy Lunch!

As for the rest of the day, I need to wash and put up the lettuce and peas I picked this morning, load the dishwasher, put away some laundry and boy, I could use a nap. I sleep between hot flashes so sleep is hard to come by these days. 

Later on I will cook dinner for my husband, tonight is Fish night so I am making pan seared Cod, the peas from the garden and probably another vegetable.

What are your plans for today?


  1. your garden greens and salad looks yummy!

  2. Hi Robyn. The food will be delicious. Looks great. This Friday, is a recovery day for me as when I have a very full day, the next day is often what I call a recovery day. I pace myself and plan for the rest of the week. Plans have to be flexible as they sometimes change.
    Glad you are feeling better.

    1. Hi Deanna,
      I do the same thing. Well my body makes me do the same thing. If I have a super busy day the next day I can only do small things around the house like a load of laundry and sometimes not even that....Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. I had no plans except for dinner which was quite easy. I hope we both get better. I, too, must have a recovery day if I do anything at all.That salad looks delicious.

  4. Nothing beats fresh!

  5. "the butt crack of dawn", that's a new one for me!! your produce looks wonderful, so beautifully healthy!! i am having so much trouble with my garden, seems nothing is doing well!!

  6. My problem with HSV 2 has caused me so many pains/traumas especially in my sex life. I was so afraid of infecting my spouse and suffered the embarrassment of visiting dermatologists. My Doctors prescribed so many Anti-Herpes medications (Antiviral drugs, CBD oil, acyclovir drugs. Unfortunately, they did not give me a definite solution to my problem The solution came from the least expected place, By reading in a specialized forum on the subject mentioned a method for eliminating herpes. Many people had tried with excellent and quick results. I had nothing to lose so I decided to use this method to eliminate my Herpes simplex virus type 2, I spent just 7 days using this method, and the sores and ulcers at Genitals dried up and cleared up completely the outbreaks/pain stopped completely. I recommend this method to anyone who wants to eliminate herpes from their bodies forever. contact or Call/Text:+1(202)871-3222

  7. Hi everyone, I saw comments from people who had already got their loan from Anderson Loan Finance. Honestly, I thought it was a scam, and then I decided to make a request based on their recommendations.
