it’s Friday! This week went by so fast, didn’t it? Yesterday was pretty dreary round here, although it was quite warm so John and I decided to walk up the street for ice cream. I ended up eating caramel apple sundae and I was way too full last night. Oops.
That meant a lighter breakfast today. I made up some of my protein waffles. I had half of a batch topped with some sautéed bananas and coconut butter.
I really love this combo.
I started work early and then decided to take a walk. No more running for me. It’s kind of a relief to say that. I can do just fine walking, biking, and lifting weights.
The other half of my protein waffles made an appearance at lunch. I just know you all were wondering what happened to the other half. I had cooked up a couple eggs this morning, so I made some egg salad. It’s funny how I keep saying I love egg salad so much and yet I don’t eat it all that often.
Now on to the blooms! I am so pleased that my garden looks so good at this time of year. There are still a lot of blooms and some of my plants are sending up new shoots.
There was another stray bloom on the clematis:
The sedum keeps getting darker and darker.
I had to get a picture of my pale hand in there so you can see how dark it is.
My garden also has a sense of humor. One of the irises I planted appears to have grown a middle finger :
White snapdragons are blooming again.
The amazing knockout rose:
And my fall flag is officially up! Guess I should have ironed it 😳
Time to celebrate fall with a latte! John made up special lattes today. This was made using the Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee I received from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program. I love getting free stuff, especially coffee!
Good coffee, although really strongly flavored. We have to cut it with a little regular coffee when brewing straight up. John used it full strength in the espresso machine and then topped the steamed milk with a little homemade dulce de leche and cinnamon.
Fall in a cup. Especially paired with chocolate 😀
It’s been a hard work day to stay concentrated. Friday afternoon and all that. Plus there was a lot of kitty love going on:
I had the camera up at my chin. She is kneading on my arm here and has her “stoner” look as I call it. It’s nice to be loved.
I was glad for dinner time to finally roll around. Even though it was a staple dinner.
Although this pear was the most apple-y pear I have ever eaten. It was somewhat round, too. If it didn’t have the pear texture, I would have thought it was an apple!
Lot of rain in store this weekend. Hoping to get the bikes out on Sunday, but there is plenty of stuff to do around here. Lots of festivals and shows.
Have a great weekend!
