I thought Thursday was my last day workin’ at the clinic, but it turns out that I got called in today to cover the shift. Guess I just can’t stay away from the old desk. It was a long day, and when we got home, the Hus and I changed out of our work clothes, grabbed some food, and positively collapsed on the porch.
I need a lounge chair, STAT. I’ve outgrown the bench every which way!
Maggie already has her lounge chair. Me.
James is a real dog that actually sits in the grass (well, the lone ‘flower’ bed – and I use that term loosely that didn’t get destroyed in the nuclear garden war over the weekend).
Time to come off the porch for dinner!
I made a very simple fried rice scramble. In the mix: brown rice, broccoli, carrots, pre-cooked lentils, and two eggs. I cooked the broccoli and carrots in a wok with a little oil, and once they were soft, I added the cooked rice and lentils. After a bit longer, I added in the eggs – it’s always hard to decide if fried rice tastes better with the eggs mixed in raw or scrambled separately and tossed in. Both options are tasty!
On top: some nutritional yeast. It added a little something-something.
And for dessert…
A watermelon wheel. Saw Kath slice a melon this way the other day and I thought – “GENIUS!” So easy to slice and so easy to eat.
So – who worked out today? Please brag! I worked out! Whoo hoo. I did a 0.5-mile swim this morning in an empty pool (well, DadHTP was with me). A virtually empty pool is a highly unusual occurrence at our gym. It was so nice! I felt pretty slow and choppy this morning, and although I don’t normally mind lane sharing in the slightest, it was nice not to have to worry about bumpin’ into someone else as I fumbled around.
I walked 2.5 miles. Does that count? I am in a post-marathon slump, so walking is all I can muster up the motivation to do.*
