Taking Anna’s cue, I thought I would document my day in photos. I missed the 25th, but went ahead and did this for April anyway (the 29th). Close enough, right? I can’t say it was a hugely exciting day, but it was fun taking photos all day.
I usually begin my day checking email while Eric gets ready for work. I, of course, have help doing this. I have become proficient at typing with a cat on my lap.
Next, I make myself breakfast. During the week, this is a smoothie. All the ingredients are here, except for the almond butter, which I still hadn’t taken out of the fridge (or the pantry rather, since I had to open a new jar). Basically, skim milk, plain fat-free yogurt, wheat germ, almond butter, protein powder and a little cinnamon. I give Romeo his shot right before I make my smoothie.
Then, yesterday morning it was off to have my car repaired. It had been overheating. It turns out my coolant fan had to be replaced (not just because the motor was failing, but also because I had somehow sheared off a fan blade).
Luckily, I had a book to start for my book club. I got about 100 pages into this before my car was ready to go.
Then, off to the dry cleaner to take Eric’s shirt he wore to the wedding. Laundered, light starch, on a hanger.
Then I was lucky enough to get to take my friend, Sherri, to lunch for her birthday. We had Mexican food, of course. Eric doesn’t like Mexican food – so Sherri and I share our love of it together. I had beef tacos…mmm.
And afterwards, in the car (where there is no salsa), we had show and tell. Sherri and I are SAL-ing on the Red Thread together. This is the first time we’ve seen our two pieces side by side.
I had a little bit of time at home before I was off to meet Eric at the gym. Of course, I had to take this photo for the Grammar Bitch. Notice (if you can), they’ve left out the word “be”, which has been driving me crazy for weeks!
It’s difficult to nonchalantly take a photo while doing your cardio.
Then, back home for dinner. We had salads (Eric’s is the one on the left loaded with blue cheese dressing (mine had raspberry walnut vinaigrette).
And beef kebabs (off the kebab), with beans.
Finally around nine, I was able to settle in for some stitching while watching Highlander. (I, too, am wearing OPI polish – No Autographs, Please).
It was a good day. The interview today went well – it turned into two interviews actually. I hope to hear something tomorrow.
I am grateful for good friends!
