I was so surprised at the number of readers who’ve been missing my posting!  I feel so loved!  And I apologize with a VENGENCE!!!  I have several excuses…but I’ll leave them a mystery…I just might have picked a boy over you. :O  I’M SO SORRY!  

heh heh.
But I come back today with a nice positve post about my 9 hour survey on one of our lovely Florida lakes!
Who wants to know how my MONDAY started? I woke up, said to Emily, “Do we really have to get up and go?”  5AM wake up calls stink.  Eww.  This is the time in the car after we’d left and headed out to the lake…breakfast in the lap, in the dark. ;)  It’s a breakfast cookie if you couldn’t tell…with my phone.  No, I didn’t eat the phone.
Um, and I think because I did a 5-miler last night at almost 8pm I was famished this morning and had this lovely bar too, in the dark, in my lap in the car, trailering.  I’m super coordinated like. 
I was seriously hangry all morning and snacked on a few of my lovely bars...I got a blogger giveaway package from Mi a few days ago and had of their lovely nakd bars that freak’n rock.  They’re like Larabars, but I think even better.  But I have yet to try a PURE BAR because I can’t find them…so the verdict is still out for raw bars. :)
But I had actuallly started off trying this new bar by Think Green that I’ve had for a while and it was HORRIBLE.  I tried two bites to give it a chance but couldn’t take it anymore.  i just couldn’t.  It tasted so fake and there was such a nasty aftertaste too…bleck.
Lunch was taken at two different times…once waiting for a nest check and consumed in 2 seconds flat…in which I don’t even chew it’s so fast.  Pb and Cinnamon sandwich.

I know you love all the cold weather gear I’m wearing when everyone around me is complaining how hot it is.  Um, wind on an airboat on a lake = CHILLY.  Esp at 8am.
Lunch number two was after finishing the hard part of the survey…so glad we were done with that!  Check out them apples…err, apple and plums.  FIRST OF THE SEASON!  Oh how i’ve missed them so…

I think I’m going to become famous for my apple in mouth photos…it seems to be the way I post my apples all the time.  what do you think?
And my plums, yay!
And of course I had to show you Emily’s beautiful lunch…I mean really, how could you go wrong?  Doritos, Thin Mints and an Orange.  CLASSIC.

We finally finished at 6, got off by 7ish and then got to our hotel to eat dinner around 8. Dang!  I packed up the rest of my couscous from this weekend when I made Brad (aka, “B”) dinner along w/ the chile-cornmeal encrusted tofu (from Veganomicon) on top of a garden salad I picked up
And then while talking to Brad on the phone I consumed my weight in lightly salted cashews.  WHY DO I LOVE THESE THINGS SO MUCH?!  Someone needs to ban them from my mouth…
Off to bed!  More survey’s and driving tomorrow!  
But I’m already looking forward to this coming weekend because I get to go wine tasting, get in a nice long run (thinking 9 or 10 miler) and camping (because I never went last weekend…all booked, and thank goodness for that because the weather was HORRIBLE!).
Still trying to catch up on Google Reader!  Mwah!

  13. Marianne says:

    Eh, no worries. I’d probably pick a boy over all of you as well. But alas, there is no boy for me to pick.

    That salad looks quite tasty. I should definitely try out that tofu recipe one of these days :)
