RIP Digi…

My original digital camera finally bit the dust today…what a sad, sad day.  Ok, really it’s not that bad, as I use my old one as a field camera so I don’t have to worry about my new and better one getting damaged…but I digress…

You have been through so much digi and lived such a great life.  I mean, Australia twice, New Zealand, San Diego, Florida (twice), Colorado and Texas.

Here are her last lovely pictures…actually, not so much as they’re pretty or focused.  Joy.

6am breakfast before field work?

  • Apple muffin
  • 1.5T Naturally More PB
  • banana
  • strawberries


So unexciting.  Sorry for that.

But I had a gorgeous sunrise!  I wish I had been at the beach to see it!


It was a fish day…and I snacked on some chocolate/pumpkin seed/peanut/cashew/raisin trail mix and an orange.  Quite a bit of trail mix.

But don’t worry, I didn’t eat with the same hand I was handling these critters with…


That would have been gross.

And if airboats weren’t cool enough, um hello, instant toaster!?


That would be my wrap, with cheese that wasn’t melted…until I left it there for about 30 minutes and it melted it to make a great toasty wrap in my bag!!!

Yes, I’m a genius like that.


And had it stuffed with leftover butternut squash from last night, tomato and lettuce…along with the awesome and melty melty cheese…FYI I hate cheese that isn’t melted.  It feels funky…on my tongue.  Texture and me don’t mix.


And the ride home couldn’t have been longer.  So I caffeinated myself up a Mochawalla Odwalla Bar.  Yeah, you got that right: Chocolate and Coffee.  What more could you ask for?!

I was famished by the time we got home…I thought I would be able to last till dinner with an apple for a bit of a snack, and that did me no good.

So what happened at 5.30pm?  Dinner peeps.  I’m a granny, but damnit I was hungry.


Obviously there are carrots and hummus…but what was in the sandwich other than lettuce and tomato you can see?


I promise there was protein in there…in a fake form.  Morningstar Chik’n Patty.  Last one.  Only two more pieces of fake stuff in my fridge to use up before I leave…


And then there was work and blogging and these delicious babies (these things must be stuffed with crack, seriously)…before I finally decided to get off my butt and watch NCIS not a shower yet.

And because this post is soooooooooooooo f’ing lame…I’ll leave you with this entertaining list of 25 things I saw on Lisa’s blog today…

    Shoo girl, I need some PB pretzels in my life. They honestly last one day around me, though. Bad for my intestines, great for my taste buds/heart.

    I've been sticking huge romaine hearts in wraps lately, too! So easy and crunchy.

    I hope the rest of your night was marvelous, love bug! xoxox

    Loved reading those answers….I love learning more little things about my fellow bloggies :) And as I tweeted you last night, I eat dinner from 5-6 every day. Just call me granny :)

    RIP camera! At least now you can pick out a new one?

    Hope you have a great hump day!!

    AH, I can quote almost all of 10 things I hate about you! Heath was my second love (after Leo)… sigh.

    Sorry about your camera :-(

  6. Jessica says:

    Oh gosh, PB pretzels are Amaaaazing!
    Your dinner sounds pretty fabulous to me. Maybe i'm crazy but I seriously LOVE those Chik'N patties. Yumm fake meat ;)
    Feel better girl!!

  7. Heather says:

    I love melty cheese – a grilled cheese is one of my favorite meals ever.

    I had guinea pigs growing up and would love another one – at least I have my fish.

  8. Krista says:

    I don't like donuts, either. HA!

    Love that juicy looking sweet potato sticking out of your wrap!!

  9. Karin says:

    Is your grandma Japanese? Because I'm almost 100% sure that Emiko is a Japanese name ;).
    (My mum's from over there so I'm always excited when I read anything about it).
