So today I had the day off and I loved every minute of it. The farrier was scheduled to come today, but it got moved to tomorrow. I took the opportunity to try and sleep in a little, but it didn’t work out too much. I got up and worked on my puzzles and had breakfast. I made a quinoa, veggie and cheese scramble, a chai latte and a slice of almond butter toast. Oh how I love almond butter 🙂
Once I finished eating my snack I got started on some chores. I got started on dishes and laundry and then I got ready to meet Josh for a run. He said he has been wanting to go for a run for a while and we finally got together to do that. I drove to his house and then we ran his road/neighborhood. It was a good run! I don’t think he was prepared for how slow I run though haha.
Once we finished our run I headed back home. I had my chocolate milk and relaxed a little bit before I fixed my lunch and spent the afternoon doing some more chores and relaxing. My lunch today was a sweet potato, chicken sausage, spinach and laughing cow hash, an apple, a carrot, and pretzels.
I have also been working on one of my mini projects. I am attempting another slouchy beanie that is part knit part crochet. I will share a picture when it it further along!
For dinner my mom made something that she saw on Food Network. I really wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but it was great! It was a whole new way to experience a combination of foods and flavors that are quite common in our dinners. She made a sweet potato, carrot, garlic, onion puree and broiled tilapia with a yogurt-mustard-lime-honey-chive sauce that was ridiculously good. I had mine over more quinoa. How many different ways can you eat quinoa and sweet potato in one day? I didn’t mind though because it was all tasty.
Before dinner was my only hard part of the day. It wasn’t that big of a struggle. I just wasn’t sure how much of some things were going into the dinner. I am getting good at guessing though so I was able to overcome that with so much ease. Then I was able to really enjoy the terrific meal my mom made.
Overall it was a great day and I wouldn’t have done anything differently! Well, maybe I would have squeezed in the barn, but tomorrow I will be there extra long with the farrier to make up for it 🙂
