Hey hey everyone! How was your first Tuesday back? Yesterday was Tuesday? I keep thinking it was Monday!! Todays’s Wednesday? What? Needless to say, my Tuesday was suuuper busy. Apparently about ½ the people I work with don’t quite know the concept of work/life balance, and sent me a many emails on Labor Day 😉 So I was busy playing catch up yesterday. Plus, it’s the busy time of year for us planners, which = busy Paige.
My lunch meeting got canceled because I was so behind, so I did manage to sneak out to Barnes and Nobles for a little sanity check. I looked at cookbooks, and found one that I’m going to get on Amazon this week:
Love her Operation Beautiful note in it:
Yayy! So true 😉
When I got back to work, I was ravenous. I had some of the usual oatmeal and a supercharge me cookie in the morning, alas, the beast wanted MOAR.
I intended to have some soup:
Mmm. However, I realized I had no can opener, and my friend who has one was out of the office today. So lunch was an impromptu mess of plain Oikos and Great Harvest Granola:
I put a big ol’ scoop in there:
And then even more after I took a couple bites. Muhaha.
Then it was more work, work, work, and around 3 I stopped for an (unpictured) Apple Pie Lara Bar.
Niko had to get some shots today, so I left work about 45 minutes early to take her in. She was pretty scared, and wanted her mama the WHOLE time. Poor little girl. But she did SO well with her shots – not even a yelp 🙂
She’ll be your BFF4L if you give her a belly rub.
Then it was time to relax at the homefront. Or so I thought…I put a big load of sheets in the washer, and then ventured downstairs, only to hear “rain.” Yeah..not rain. Our washer had a leak!! Luckily, my handy-man of a husband was able to fix it (crosses fingers!!!) Then it was relax time.
Carribean pizza by Kashi with plantains, kale, pepper, and tomato.
Zucchini pasta with tomato peanut sauce.
With some VINO!
I made the Zucchini pasta because I made some of Brandi’s Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins!!! It’s my friend at work’s birthday, so we’re having a “food day” for her today, and my contribution is Brandi’s muffins.
They were goooood! Yes, I sampled. What of it ? 🙂
All packed up and ready to go!
What’s your current “home project/problem” right now?
Ours is obviously the washer. Our dryer also sqeaks and creaks and doesn’t dry very good. I’m working on the hubski to get a new one. “After our cruise,” he says.
