Oh boy what a Monday.
First things first: I found a kitty today!
Boo! I know, he’s missing a few eyes, and in this picture a body, but I’m pretty sure he won’t tear up my furniture if I bring him home!
Poor little Bobcat, aka Kitttttttty that I found out in the desert today. I would have enjoyed him much more if he had been alive…hunting something out in the desert. Alas…
I had these pictures from last week that I just downloaded and wanted to share. I think it makes the desert look absolutely beautiful.
I can’t wait until later this week when I’m out there before sunrise and get some great photos of that! It is absolutely gorgeous!!!
Anyhow, our morning was wasted waiting for police that didn’t come…I can’t really explain why, but it’s the risk you take covering every square inch of certain parts of the desert. Don’t worry, none of us were hurt! We were just taking precautions…and that’s all I’m going to say.
I wasn’t feeling good all morning, within the instant I woke up (extremmmmme nausea) so I waited on eating breakfast…luckily we only walked 2.5 miles before we had to stop and wait for the police, so I didn’t exert myself too much. I did finally munch on a pb and bagel sandwich and apple around 11 and a homemade blackberry bar around 12.30, each time when I started to get but the later just made me feel sick again.
We got home and did some data stuff and I was starving but nauseated at the same time so I went with something simple: Berry Green Monster
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/3 c frozen blackberries
- 1/3 c frozen blueberries
- 1/2 c USVAB
- 2 huge handfuls of spinach
and to add some crunch a 1/2 c of pb panda puffs.
I spent the afternoon reading my book and trying to relax my belly but nothing would help. I’ve had this problem in the past and exercise always helps so I went out for a short run, that turned into 5 miles of hills around home! Eep! I felt great during the run, but tummy was upset still the second I stopped. Boo. Hope I feel all better tomorrow!
I did some blog reading, read the local town newsletter and came upon the idea of getting one of these beauties…
Now, I have never owned a cat before and have a heart for dogs, but I think this would be easier for me in my apartment as it’s kinda small and I have no yard. What do you think? I’m hoping it might help with a bit of the “loneliness” I’m experiencing and which might get worse when my roomie leaves in a month and I’M ALL ALONE. Yep…
Anyhow, tummy was still not happy by dinner time so I settled on the simplest and most bland thing I could put in my belly with some nutrition: EGGS.
On two pieces of bakery bread, with laughing cow cheese and a 1/4 of a small cantaloupe.
It’s my staple when I’m sick or not feeling well!
[[Side Note: To Empower
I decided that this week, I’m going to focus on some things about myself that I constantly beat up and put down far too much and look at how I should appreciate it and embrace that i have it.
So today: MY PERSONALITY
If you follow me on twitter, you might have seen my tweet this afternoon that I’m being set up on a blind date this weekend. It may happen this weekend, it may happen the next. We aren’t sure yet.
Anyhow, at first I thought this was a funny idea, ridiculous and silly because I couldn’t see myself doing it. Then, I got scared and anxious, having to spend time with someone I had never ever met in my life that knows absolutely nothing about me.
But then, I thought, hell, this could be fun for me and let me say, let down my hair a bit and relax! I should be allowed and feel comfortable to show new people my dedication to my life filled with running, birding, the environment, baking, blogging and so many other things. I need to learn that if people don’t like the same things as me, that’s fine! Maybe they won’t like it, maybe they might learn to like it if they saw what I see in it, etc. All in all, if they don’t and therefore find it an unappealing aspect about me, so be it. There are other things we might have in common and if not, then it’s not meant to be/work out.
And I’m fine with that. I don’t want to spend time with people whom I’ll have to argue or defend the things I love against. There are so many other people out there to find, talk and bond with that will like these things. I’ll learn so many things in the process about making friends, dating ,and ultimately about myself, which I find to be the most enlightening thing out of them all.
Maybe the more I learn about myself the more I’ll see that I’m not as bad as I think I am and come to love the person I’ve developed into!
What do you think about blind dates? Ever been on one? I want to hear your stories!!!
And what is your favorite thing about your personality? ]]
