Yesterday we had a storm move through and all day my 16 month old dobie was inside. She was a little keyed up so I took out a new toy every so often to amuse her with a new distraction. She ran, barked, chased and got angry with the rain. She jumped in the tub when the phone alerts went off and got right back out. She was hyper girl.
It's feels like spring break with the sun blazing and the heat rising. People are wearing flip flops and smell like the beach.
This is the best dish I cooked all week. This looked perfect from a paleo favorite of mine. I tweaked it a bit using the ingredients I had on hand. I was tired from the long day but it was easy to make. The butcher ground up some pork for me so all I had to do was toss it in the pan and cook it with the other ingredients. I'm usually stocked up on almond butter; therefore, I used almond butter instead of the sunbutter. In addition, I don't have coconut aminos around so I used more chili sauce.
Vienna loves to be up on things like this wherever she is and riding in the car is no exception. She is too cute and curious. She also greets me in the morning like this on the edge of my bed. Get up mom. I can judge by the force of her paws how determined she is going to be. If I'm still sleeping she gently places them down and tries to peek at me.
Goog Morning. I watched part 2 of The Bachelor last night because we all could not take it another day waiting to know the drama that would shock America. My guess is this is February and women are snowed in or it's raining and cold outside. If you thought Olympic skating drama was annoying, you'd be right. If you thought I was not going to talk about the fantasy suite, well, you'd be wrong. It's entertainment and that's why I watch.
Hi there. What is it about being outside that makes me more calm? The soothing sound of the waves is healing. I must get to the beach soon.
Lunch was a simple platter of cold cuts and cheese. I'll have a snack in about an hour because this was so small.
It was a wet weekend mostly here so I was inside prepping for tax season. There was quite a lot of resting, movies, and spring cleaning happening around home. We still got our hour walks in even if it was sprinkling a bit. For dinner last night I cooked up shrimp with white wine, garlic, and parsley. The store had little neck clams which are farmed at Ceder Key because of the ideal conditions and the huge harvest area. I'll cook the clams tonight for dinner.
For an afternoon snack I had this tangerine that was like an explosion of honey and orange blossom in my mouth. I. am. spoiled. You owe it to yourself to pick some up and find out what you may, or may not, be missing.
Sometimes it's like I'm twelve and jumping rope is the highlight of my day. Double unders are when you can make two revolutions of the rope to one jump. It's about speed and timing. There are all kinds of different ropes in class to use; leather, wire, and plastic. The wire jump rope really whips my arms so I prefer the plastic one. Now I need to string them along one after another.
