Howdy there! How are you doing today?
My day has been very chill, and I’m grateful! Lots of cleaning and painting on one of my deer skulls … I have epic plans for this skull, y’all. It’s going to have a crown of flowers, some rhinestones, and a pretty pattern all over it.
I wasn’t very hungry this morning, and I was in a “fruit-y” mood, so I had a simple apple and a banana alongside my *three* cups of coffee with almond milk and stevia. We bought some Gevalia French Roast, and I LOVE it … it’s so much stronger and more finely ground than the Starbucks that we usually purchase. I think I’m a convert!
I baked some carrot, cauliflower, and broccoli with seasoning and served them with a delightful mashup of Thai Chili Style tuna, cucumbers, Pace Salsa and Light Fiesta Ranch. YUM! I may or may not have added a little spicy mustard to the tuna. 😉
Okay y’all, this is pretty silly … I went to the store today looking for a nice big ol’ spaghetti squash. I had plans for that spaghetti squash too … I bought some pasta sauce and Parmesan and wanted to load that shit up for dinner tonight. I spotted a spaghetti squash at Walmart for just $2.68, so I quickly snapped it up and went on my way. At home when I cut into it, however, I realized that this spaghetti squash looked a little odd inside … yeah, turns out it’s a MELON that looks just like a spaghetti squash on the outside. Epic FAIL. However, I sliced up the big ol’ melon and stuck it in the fridge … my snack today was, therefore, melon with salt. Despite my wonderful plans for a spaghetti squash dinner, I had a delicious snack!
I roasted some trimmed green beans and zucchini with S+P and Parmesan and also baked some BBQ chicken alongside it. I was crock pot-ting some chicken, but I needed dinner before it was done, so I just tossed a few pieces into the oven! Easy peasy. I had a dollop of hummus on the side. I also added a Silk Peach-Mango yogurt with raspberries and strawberries.
I didn’t get out to exercise today, but that’s okay! I’m just calling it like it is – a REST day! 😉 No biggie, y’all.
I’m stable and in a great mood because of the weather turning warmer. Summer is my golden-time, so I’m looking forward to a happier one than last year! Last year I was knee-deep into anorexia, and I headed to the rehab center in July – at the same time when I was away, my beloved grandma, my Nan, passed away. Luke was also moving us into the apartment and selling the house when I was away too … I don’t miss last summer one bit!
Today Luke and I had a photo-session with Persephone-cat, so I thought I’d share:

I went to the zoo yesterday and had an amazing time with my friend, Celeste. We saw all of the creatures (lions, a tiger, a bear, elk, bison, a gray fox, a badger, some macaws … tons of reptiles, which you know I love! … so much more!). I’m excited at the prospect of volunteering out there. I’ll know more in June. 🙂
Luke’s motorcycle was totaled out by the insurance company, so he’s on the hunt for a new bike! He’s going to look at a local Yamaha tonight that’s for sale on Craigslist, and I hope he likes it! He’s torn because they totaled out the bike – he *really loved* his red and gray Triumph, but he knows that it might be problematic to get it fully repaired … it’s probably easier for him just to buy a new one, but he sure loved his old bike, and it’s stressful for him. 😦 He’s looking at a Yamaha tonight … we’ll see what comes of it!
Here’s to a bright tomorrow, my friends! xoxo
