TGIS, TBIMT

Thank God it's Sunday, too bad it's Monday tomorrow . . .

Up early yesterday to drive up to San Francisco for grad school orientation. Tried to stay awake through the 5.5 hours of it. Tried to stay awake for the drive home. Tried to stay awake through the Safeway stop (since my fridge was completely empty). Crawled into bed at 4pm (when I finally got home), watched bad cable movies and caught up on some work. The cats were very happy.

Today, woke up late (YAY), Whole Foods to get the good veggies, laundry, etc. Filled up and put out the bird feeders, and the birds JUST discovered this -- Fiona's transfixed, have no idea where Molly is, but she's missing out!

Just took a turkey breast out of the oven (YUM), cut up my celery for snacks, a loaf of bread is in the bread maker that I inherited (inaugural loaf). I need another day off, but won't get it, darn!

Aha! Molly has just sprung onto the scene. I've never seen eyes move so fast while a body sits so still. I'm going to have to go get a bird book so that I know what I'm feeding . . .

I should get up to do another load of laundry, but I can't move . . .

Finished listening to Firewing, the last of Kenneth Oppel's children's books about Shade the bat. Yes, yes, I know, of ye of little faith -- I love kid's books, and these were really very good, though such a sad finale that I was a wreck driving around today -- really touched an inner emotional core. I recommend them, but time the last half of the last tape to when you're driving HOME.

Started working with a "wellness coach" this week -- it's pretty cool, I must say. Setting long term and short term goals, making small changes, relearning patterns, etc. Hence, the cutting up of celery (VERY good with almond butter!), etc. I'll be roasting veggies shortly: asparagus, yam, baby red potatoes, onion, acorn squash. Toss with some olive oil and garlic, and I'm good to go! Also making tabbouleh with olives marinated in lemon and garlic (GOOD), grape tomatoes, mint, feta, and some asparagus (trust me, VERY good).

OK, I'd better get off my bum and go for the final push of chores.
