Guest Bathroom & Veggie Recap

With the exception of a few piddly things (like putting the outlet back in the wall), I have finished our guest bathroom in the new house. I’ve always loved yellow and grey bathrooms. Now I have one! I think it turned out great, if I say so myself.

Two Days Worth

I can’t seem to get the puppy to sleep passed 4 AM. I’m very thankful that he’s a good sleeper but an hour later wake up call would be awesome! He’ll get there eventually. :)

Gonna do a two day wrap up here.

Wednesday:

For breakfast I had a little blackberry Chobani, Rainier cherries and a string cheese.

Lunch was some leftover veggie lasagna, a salad with red wine vinegar and a DP.

After some piddling around the house and playtime with dogs and kitties, I cooked a quick dinner.

Various roasted veggies (squash, green tomato, potatoes, broccoli, green beans and sweet peppers) with some beluga lentils. These lentils have 42g of protein per cup!

Thursday:

My fall allergies are slowly creeping back in. I had to start my medicine again. So I spent most of the day in a allergy medicine fog. It always takes me a few days to get used to the way that it makes me feel. Weeeeeee! LOL

Breakfast was a complete repeat of Wednesday.

Quick lunch of mac & cheese.

Fonzie has started laying like a toad frog. I was wondering when he was going to start. Every dog we’ve ever had “like” him (boxer, mastiff, etc) has laid like this. So cute with his cob web on his back. :)

Life Lost

As someone that battles depression (not nearly as serious though), I feel heartbroken that suicide became an option for him. I hope you have found the peace you have longed for. My heart and prayers go out to those who loved you most. May they find a moment of comfort remembering your smile.

Today started out much like yesterday. I had grapes and a pink grapefruit Chobani for breakfast.

Lunch was leftovers from Sunday’s dinner. A bella burger and sweet potato puffs.

I kept dinner super simple! More leftovers! Haha! I heated up the leftover lasagna from yesterday and added another lil salad to it. Instead of tomato, I had some sweet peppers on the salad this time. True to form…it was better today than yesterday!

After dinner, I had a handful of Rainier cherries. I’m sure gonna miss these babies when the season is done.
