Heat wave! Are you keeping cool? Pixie is trying 😀
I knew I had to get the exercise done early unless I wanted to go to the gym and do the treadmill, so I was outside at 7 am to run at the track. It was a nice quiet 3-mile run, although warm already at 70 degrees 😯 I will spare you the picture of what I looked like when I finished. I was ready for a cold drink and made up some iced coffee with my protein waffles.
To make the cold brewed coffee, I just put 1 cup of ground coffee with 4 cups of water and let it sit overnight. Then filtered it this morning.
It tastes so much better than brewed coffee that you let get cold and ice.
I have a busy few days coming up. John left for Atlantic City on a spur of the moment trip with a friend for a couple days. That means that I need to take care of the business, along with my own work – not to mention that I start training for my new job on Wednesday. It all depends on how busy each of those things is. So, I may not get around to some reading some of your blogs for a couple days! I had better make a bunch of the cold-brewed coffee.
More cool eats for lunch:
Vanilla greek yogurt, low fat granola and berries. The classic.
Finally turned on the AC when the living room thermometer said 86 degrees. I didn’t even want to see how hot it was upstairs. This is why I could never live in the South. Then we had a brown out. At first while I was working, I noticed it got very quiet in the house. The AC kicked off, as did my fan. Computer was still on because of the battery, so it took me a bit to figure out what happened (duh). I have no car, as it went to Atlantic City, so that nixed the idea of trying to go somewhere cool like the library because I was not biking in this heat! Funny that the TV would come on, but the internet, AC and fans would not work, or the fridge. It got pretty hot soon:
I checked the status with the power company and they estimated about 2 hours for the power to come back up. It ended up being 1.5, so that was good. Of course, I got hungry during this time and the espresso machine would not power up…. booo! So I just had a slice of bread and nut butter.
I was going to toast it, but the toaster oven wasn’t working and check out the state of it:
Door isn’t supposed to open like that….
CSN stores is going to let me do a review of a toaster oven for them. They have several websites selling a lot of things like dining room furniture, cookware, etc. Good thing I am going to do this review, because we use our toaster oven a lot!
My plumerias are blooming. They are indoor plants and are getting a little unwieldy now, but they smell heavenly when they bloom:
This particular one is about 4 feet tall.
Dinner time and I poked around the fridge to see what to use up. With John gone, I am going to need to eat up a bunch of produce! I decided to use the last bit of hamburger and put it on a sweet potato with laughing cow and caramelized onions (good thing I am a bachelorette tonight!). It actually was surprisingly tasty. And I managed to not burn my broccoli tonight.
I need to work tonight and pack orders and try to keep from snacking without John here. Isn’t that what swinging singles do? I can’t even remember LOL! I decided if I get hungry I can have a banana 😀 Maybe that will keep me out of the cereal…..
If you haven’t checked my mindful/intuitive eating post, here is the link if you are interested.
Time for the bachelorette lifestyle! See you tomorrow….
