Wednesday and you know what that means! We ended up driving to bagels. It was 38 degrees and sunny, which was not what we were expecting when we went to bed last night, which was rain. However, 38 degrees really isn’t as much fun to ride in, plus it was windy. I grumped a little, though, as I felt like the Weather Channel cheated us a bit. Can’t trust them at all.
All toasty and warm in a sunny window, too.
After we got back home, I took a 10 minute walk around the block. I am trying to incorporate those more into my daily routine to get moving. I have a tendency when I sit down to work (or do any project, really) and go, go, go until it is done without stopping. I really don’t need to do this and getting out and walking a few times during the day is good for me. Plus I think it helps keep my mind fresh.
I decided to be like Roz and take some flower pictures on my little walks:
Another flowering tree:
Lunch time. I got a bit hungry and took the edge off with some nuts.
Then I made up an omelet with laughing cow and hot sauce.
Another couple walks in the afternoon (one time getting rained on). 2 miles under my belt before I knew it! Then it was latte time.
So, does anyone want a kitty? Look at this:
Yes, the picture of innocence. Not!!!
I looked at my sunflowers today, which were all leafing out quite nicely as of yesterday with 6 leaves a piece.
Someone thought they would make a good snack. One of these eaten just down to a stem. Weeks of growing ruined in one midnight kitty attack. Argh! She comes with free paper balls for her toys as well – and lots of hair. Sigh…
Okay, just kidding. I love her.
Dinner tonight was a new fish attempt for me. This time we got Mahi Mahi.
John basted it with a little orange ginger sauce (from La Choy) and pan cooked it. I served mine on top of sauteed veggies and some basmati rice.
Looks like a dish from a restaurant!
The verdict? I actually liked this fish the best out of all I have tried thus far. It doesn’t have a fishy taste, which is good. It has a firm texture, which I like better than flaky (or mushy). I think I will eat this one again for sure. I am doing well with my fish experiments.
My literacy learner has cancelled tonight. He got a new job and now works nights, so we are rescheduling. I am glad he got a job! That means I have a free evening now. I already walked another mile after dinner, so I have gotten in 3 miles today of walking. I am hungry now, though. Gotta find some snacks. Other than just this:
