Hey guys! The weather here is unreal right now. I left work at lunch and my car read 86 degrees. Crazy! If the wind wasn’t blowing 100 miles an hour, it would be gorgeous. Oklahoma has some gnarly winds. We also have a lot of these.
I’m totally not looking forward to another Tornado season. That tornado actually occurred in a town 5 minutes from where I grew up when I was 12. It nearly wiped out the whole town, and there are still houses without roofs when you drive by the area. Scary stuff. That was a completely random tangent for a food blog. My bad.
Moving on. I thought I had everything planned out and ready to go this morning. I can get ready and out the door in 16 minutes on a good day. I only wash my hair every other day (unless I have a gross, sweaty workout the night before) and I take a bath every night, so I’m not forsaking hygiene I promise.
However, today the zipper was broken on the skirt I was planning to wear (did I mention the whole Murphy’s Law thing yet?), so I ended up leaving the house in a huge rush – thus leaving my cell phone at home. Normally I wouldn’t have cared, but I promised B (guy I’m dating) I’d call him when I left work tonight so we can meet at the theater.
So I went home to get it at lunch, and while there I had some leftover Baked Minestrone.
This was definitely a million times better today. Thirty minutes just wasn’t enough to get the flavors going last night, but after hanging out in the fridge for awhile it tasted like a whole new dish. Love that.
While I was home I got the house ready for tomorrow morning since I won’t be home until bed time tonight. Every night I get my coffee ready, lay out my outfit, put my almond milk and spinach in a blender, pack my gym/work clothes bag, etc. so I did most of that during lunch.
Sometimes it seems like my whole day revolves work around preparing for work the next day. Not that I’m bitter. Except maybe I am bitter. Just a little though. And not about my part-time job. That’s not even work. It’s that 8 hours a day of sitting at a desk that kills small parts of my soul each day. Dramatic? Yes. I told you it was one of those days
I believe in hard work and I’m really just being a big whine bag right now, I’m just really hoping to find a way soon to make all of my work match my interests better. I expounded on this here. So far… no dice. But I have faith that I’ll get there.
Again, moving on. In order to eat up some of the lovely fresh produce that’s bursting from the seams of my fridge, I packed a lovely salad to eat in my hole at the office.
Just a simple salad of arugula, yellow tomatoes (these have a fancy name but I keep forgetting to look at the carton), and 1/2 of a super delicious avocado. Seriously, the best avocadoes I’ve had in months. Are they in season right now? Oh, and I drizzled it all with balsamic vinegar.
Later on I had my new favorite snack – Greek yogurt and peanut butter. But I figured you were sick of that visual by now. And sick of my bitter, random rambling antics. So I will now depart.
What kind of natural disasters do you have where you live?
Like I said, I’m terrified of the storms we get here in Tornado Alley, but I would be just as scared of earthquakes and hurricanes if we had those.
