Monday already! This is just a mish mash of things going through my mind today because it was that kind of day!
I have been informed that there has been a lack of Pixie love on the blog lately, so I will remedy this.
Here is Pixie guarding the house. A customer stopped by for John’s business this morning and Pixie was all up in arms about them parking in her bird viewing spot.
Breakfast was a big change up for me today. I made a hash with some local breakfast sausage and a potato, topped with an over medium egg.
Probably should have filed this under the “don’t get too close” category of food photography, but it was really good!
We turned on the air conditioning today and Pixie decided it was cold weather and she needed a lap.
She is quite content here after kneading my leg for about 10 minutes getting it just right. One of those times when I am really glad she doesn’t have claws.
With the heat and all the brushing of Pixie, I have been entertaining picking up a copy of this book.
I guess there really is a book for everything.
Lunch today was also probably in the “don’t get too close” category, but really delicious!
Greek yogurt with apple topping and a few toasted pecans.
I read an interesting nugget today on reported calories.
The survey results from 2009-2010 for calories consumed per day for adults over the age of 20:
- Men 2512
- Women 1778
This is what is self reported to have been eaten on a daily basis.
From Marion Nestle – Note: These are reported figures, and remain well below the 3000 calories a day for men and 2400 for women observed in studies that actually measure calorie balance.
That’s almost a 600 calorie difference for both men and women between what they say they eat and what they are measured to actually eat. Interesting, no?
I do know the calories in my snack.
110 for the latte and about 80 for the pineapple.
Here is another shot of Pixie doing what she does best:
I would say she is a happy and relaxed cat.
John did his duty of cooking the salmon tonight. I guess Mondays are officially fish night around here as we shop on Sunday and get some. He glazed it with maple syrup. The real stuff.
I am officially addicted to my Kindle. My Kimble Kindle, as it were. I have a ton of free books on there, plus I am trialing Amazon Prime and you get a book per month free – so I am reading the 2nd book in the Hunger Games. I have had that book one day and I am almost a third of the way through it! I have the hard copy of Game of Thrones from the library out and am having a tough time getting through that one. I read a preview of it and thought it was fairly good, but not liking it as much as I did. I might toss that back to the library. Maybe I would like it better if it was on my Kindle? 😉
Last random thing of the day. My nightly snack!
Normally I don’t get clementines at this time of year, but they had a shipment on sale, so we took a chance. Today I am doing my 90/10 eating. I had an indulgent weekend – or at least Saturday was, so back to business again 😀
