Boy, was that a short week or what? I think I could get used to working Mon and Tues, having Wed off, and then working Thurs and Friday. That would be a nice work week.
I knew some heat was going to be coming in today, so I was out before 7 am to take a bike ride! Glad I went early, too. It was fairly quiet. I took the paths mostly. Lots of birdies singing and a few people, but not many.
I really find it just sets up my whole day to exercise in the morning. I tend to get crabby if I haven’t done my morning workout. I never used to be a morning person, but somehow became one.
15 miles done and I was home. I made up a quick breakfast (I had a workout shake before leaving the house for the ride).
1-minute muffin topped with peanut flour and jam. Kind of looks like dessert, doesn’t it? It’s not very sweet, though. I am always amazed at how long I stay full with this muffin.
Worked and watched the Tour until lunch. I didn’t want anything heavy, so I made a scrambled egg sandwich!
With hot sauce – kinda messy, but Yum! Haven’t had one of those in a while.
Garden tour time!
This makes me so happy. I stand out there with a big smile. I love flowers. It makes John laugh when he sees me get all excited in the garden.
Lilies are still going.
I put one of my attic-find planters with the lilies for now.
It gets more sun here at this time of year.
The Hot Papaya echinacea have more blooms. I love how these open orange and then turn red.
My 3 ‘expensive’ coneflowers all together.
See how the milkshake one turns into a white fluffy ball? So cool.
My other coneflower friend.
I have Japanese beetles now, which are eating some plants. You can see the holes in the petals on this plant.
Snapdragons. These are just plants that popped up where ever from when I deadheaded the flowers last year. I like seeing where they end up.
One of the pots on my back porch with flowering tobacco and alysum.
My heliopsis clematis is finally blooming.
It’s about half the size it normally is at this time of year.
Ready for a snack?
My obsession. Time to buy pineapple futures everyone. Just a tip.
Leftovers for dinner tonight. Chicken on a baker.
Plus something for my sweet tooth.
I have to work more tonight, but will be taking a break to walk up the street for a kiddie cone. I budgeted it into my calories for the day. It’s a good day for ice cream!
