Early Work Day
For me. Most of you are probably up way before I am. But 6:30 is way too early for me. Which is why I didn't actually get up until 6:45 and had to be at work by 8.
I didn't want to go to work. Resented having to go.
See. I tell G that this means I am getting closer to deciding to be "retired" or "semi-retired".
Today it was stinking hot at work, humid and I was damp and sticky by 8:15. And then I had to go empty the water plant pools which had gotten thick and stinky. OMG. Sticking ones hands in the water and having slimy things "brush" past and touch you---- I felt like running around screaming. and then there were the water spiders and the frogs. I ended up dipping stuff out and pouring it on the gravel. We also hosed off the plants. Later, while watering the sedums--I got stung by a BEEEEEEE
G and I had a nice dinner. Steak wrapped in bacon (oh, stop), steamed broccoli, plain white rice. I had vegetable kabobs as an addition to my plate.
I am trying to "eat mindfully" and at work I had a cucumber, cantaloupe chunks, water, ham and cheese rolled up (low carb), more water, a nice juicy "eastern" peach, and more water. Mostly I was choosing foods that would elevate my water levels. I think my "hunger" is more about being thirsty than being hungry.
I went out to the garden to get veggies for the kabobs and got many many many mosquito bites as it had rained about 30 minutes before I went out there. Got a lot of cucumbers, some squash and a shirt front full of Sun gold cherry tomatoes. I left the peppers and tomatoes for another day.
My parsley plants are almost 5 feet tall and ridiculous. I need to pull them out and strip off the leaves and make my frozen parsley leaf rolls for use in SummerFallWinterSpring recipes. Remember Princess SummerFallWinterSpring on Howdy Doody?
