Rainy Day Tuesday

I don’t like rainy days in the summer, but I am glad for it today.  The plants needed some nourishment, so I’m glad for them.  But it is a day of my fast disappearing vacation that just seems to be a waste.  Oh I know there’s lots you can do on a rainy day – clean up, organize, read, etc., but sunny summer days are just the best.  I was up early (for summer) and had Puffins, 1/2 a banana, blueberries, and some strawberry yogurt on top for breakfast.  Those Puffins are so crunchy with just the right amount of sweetness!  I have become quite a fan of them and can’t wait to try the peanut butter ones!

Next on the agenda was a two and a half mile walk with Jennifer.  Thanks Jenn for keeping me going!  I love walking in the morning – I just need to keep it up when school starts and get up early to do it – we’ll see.  Next on my TDL was a mani – and boy did I need one before vacation – those nails were looking bad.  Not now though thanks to Thresa – the best nail tech ever!  Next it was time for lunch which consisted of a nice big salad with yellow pepper, red pepper, mushrooms, cucumber, Vidalia onion, homegrown tomato, feta, and of course lettuce.  I always feel like I’m taking a vitamin when I eat this kind of a salad (which is pretty much daily).  I should call it a vegamin salad.  It has lycopene, antioxidants, fiber, and other healthy stuff and it is tasy and filling!  Today I topped it with some light Catalina to gie it a little  sweet taste.  I also had a black bean burger that I made from scratch and some black beans and rice from Uncle Ben.  It was filling, delicious and nutritious.

They’ve been getting tap water, but I’m sure as the rain fell on them today they said – ahhhhh, delicious and nutritious!  They hadn’t been rained on in a long time. so I’m happy for them even though for me it’s just a rainy summer day.
