I was a busy bee last night scrubbing the bathroom floor and doing some weeding and driveway cleanup. My back actually was hurting, so I took a Tylenol PM in the hopes that I would sleep later (plus help my back). We woke up about 8:30 – which is really, really late for me! Cooler weather for sleeping, too – we were in the upper 40s (Last I checked it was still August, right?) John wanted to bike to breakfast before he went out of town, so I snarfed 2 dates with cashew butter before we left. I should have had more, as it was a very long time in between those dates and the last thing I ate the night before (by about 15 hours). The bike ride was 8 miles each way. Felt fine for the first 7 miles and then zoomed really fast up a hill. Smarty me thought it would be a challenge to not change gears and just power up the hill. Came down on the other side and I felt pretty sweaty, so I unzipped my jacket, but realized that I wasn’t really hot, but starting to feel hypoglycemic. I thought “Uh, oh, my first bonk.” Good thing we were pretty much at Panera Bread. Unfortunately – they didn’t have any samples out like they usually do, and I was starting to get the shakes. I grabbed my coffee cup and went over to the coffee area to get a bit of milk and coffee in me ASAP. I started to feel a bit better. Decided on a white, sweet bagel for the carbs:
Looks like raisins, but it’s not! Chocolate chips 😀 After about 1/2 the bagel I felt sooooo much better. Lesson learned.
For whatever reason, I am super productive when John goes out of town. I managed to mow the lawn, do laundry, roast coffee, vacuum, sweep and mop, play a computer game 😀
I made lunch and was quite hungry. This wrap has my favorite curry chicken salad in it. And yes, that is a liter bottle of seltzer. It was half empty, and being the bachelorette today, I drank right out of the bottle! Bwhaaa!
It was stuffed full, and I tried to close it with toothpicks. Didn’t work, so I ended up wrapping it in a paper towel after I dropped some on my lap. Note to self: remove toothpicks before wrapping.
Plus a raspberry pluot. Juiciest thing ever! I actually had to stand over the sink to eat it. It was very good, the skin was very tart and the inside was very sweet – amazing combo.
Proceeded to get through the above list and walked to the feed store to pick up food for some lazy cat:
Then put my feet up with a latte!
And some of these:
I have a confession to make. As much as I love to tell everyone to eat real food, I have some secret love for instant potatoes. I don’t know why, but I like the taste of them for whatever reason. At the store the other day, these were on clearance, so I got a couple:
Made for an interesting dinner.
I probably wouldn’t buy them again (unless there is a sale 🙂 ), but it was fast, easy and pretty tasty.
Because it’s is so gorgeous out, I went out for an easy 2 mile jog post dinner. Tonight is Netflix movie night and some more relaxing!
Have a great one!
