Thursday Tales

The only thing missing is fresh flowers.
This is the red vase I picked up at Ikea this past weekend with every intention of placing it in the entertainment center.
However, after rearranging and contemplating many times, I decided I liked it best in the kitchen. On the windowsill. Above the sink.
A vibrant burst of color to greet me each day.
Not to take away from this one but had I known then the windowsill would be it's new home, I probably would have gotten the larger sized vase instead.
So, as mentioned on the previous entry, thank you very much for taking the time to cast your vote. When all was said and done, the resounding voice is a sundress. I agree. Great minds think alike huh?
Today was one of those glorious Northwest summer days. Temps in the 80s. Sun shining. Light breezes. Wild life playing. People out in droves.
If you live around these parts, I hope you got out and enjoyed what the last few days have had to offer. Weather reports indicate the clouds are moving in and the weather will be getting cooler. I believe it. There were a couple of clouds directly above the mountain today. Fall is a'coming.
I had a late lunch with Kyla at Panera. I got a Frontega Chicken. My first time to get it and lets just say after seeing the nutrition information, I will not be getting it again. It was good but peeps it was not worth 41 grams of fat, 2300 mgs of sodium, 78 grams of carbs, and 47 grams of protein. Holy hell.
Kyla got the Mediterranean Veggie. I should have followed her lead. Her selection contained 13 grams of fat, 1450 mgs of sodium, 100 carbs, and 23 grams of protein.
We both opted for a fruit cup, unsweetened tea, and split a mini pineapple upside down bundt cake. That had 25 grams of fat, 570 mgs of sodium, 74 grams of carbs, and 6 grams of protein. Sometimes not knowing really is better.
Post lunch we headed over to Target. We picked up, for the most part, only the essentials. My non essential purchases included a t-shirt and two cds. Thanks for the recommendation Ace. I picked up Paolo Nutini's These Streets and The Evolution of Robin Thicke.
From there I dropped off a few library books, swung by the office, and met up with part of the crew for happy hour at our Cheers.
Now I am really regretting getting the basket of fries with ranch on the side (dang Red Robin craving). Of course the lemonade and goose combo added extra calories and carbs I could have done without.
Maricel, I'm walking extra hard Friday night!
Now? Now it is time for sleep. The alarm will be going off way too early tomorrow morning.
Hope y'all had a good day today too and Friday is great too.
Oh, and go Hawks! The Raiders looked cleaner in the first half but you brought this pre-season game home for us with a final score of 19-14.
Peace and Love Peeps.

I feel your fat grams pain. UGH

I allowed hubster to "train" me today in the backyard for the first time. HA...

He had me throwing a heavy ball, sprinting and then doing lunges back. After a few reps I was dying and begging for water.

Then I came inside and made myself some Toll House peanut butter cookies and ate 6 of them little effers.

I'm going to pugt myself out to pasture tomorrow.

That is, if I can make my legs move.

Pretty vase too.

Panera is evil. Evil I say. With their bread, their sweet treats, the fat and sodium you don't want to think about...for shame.

Did you give in to your chocolate ice cream post our walk and salads? Hmmmmm?

You are a brave woman. Cookies are a nice reward. I'll be next to you in the pasture. But the happy cows are in Cali right? Does that mean we are doomed?
