Time

I need more of it, that’s what I need.  Oh, and eyes that won’t dry out and eat filled with dirt.  Don’t ask.

Oh what?  You heard I got another flat tire?  Oh yes, yes it happened again.  #3 in less than a month.  No pity, I’m now a pro at changing tires is all!  Watch me un-torque those lug nuts!

So…hello!  Thank goodness this pretty face comes out to greet me every day I come home.  Until she starts chewing my ankles and swiping at my face.  Yes, she’s got an attitude, just like her owner.

This morning was another early one:

I think I’ve become more of a sunrise person than sunset.  Maybe I just need the beach again to like my sunsets again…Oh to be a west coast girl.  Cali love!

And what else to do that watch for birds and fill my belly?

I totally forgot how much oats fill me up, like instantly.  Not the best feeling because I need to eat a substantial amount as I can’t eat very often while out in the field.  It may seem like I can, but my food is literally slammed down my throat in like, 10 seconds flat.  Not an easy task, or fun, or clean.  Haha…I’m a slob…anyhoooo…I mashed up a banana with some USVAB, 1/3C rolled oats and cinnamon last night to soak everything up.  Then this morning I added some Naturally More PB and 2/3 of a peach I brought along.  Twas the best breakfast I have had in a very long time!

After finishing up some surveys and being felled by a flat tire, I returned home in an awful mood…nothing better to perk me up than fruit and homemade goodies!

My camera ate my afternoon photos except all the kitty ones…so I’ll share those instead.  Besides, a boring pb sandwich and bowl of cereal aren’t as cute as this!

We napped away part of the afternoon (sorry people, but getting up at 4.15 is a hard thing to do, even when you go to bed at 9.30!) and after deciding it had cooled down enough, I went for a run…and noticed there were some pretty big clouds in the sky.  Oh boy!

I ran 4.71 miles in 42 minutes, which is much better than I thought since I felt super sluggish!  The thunder clouds brought in the humidity which wasn’t all that bad but when I saw the lightning striking, the thunder clapping, and a fire erupt from a strike, I was trying to haul my butt home!

Honey thought it was fun to watch…I thought she’d be scared.

(Sorry, blogger won’t let me rotate the picture.  Oiy).

I had the same dinner as last night, just a different fruit:

And now I’m trying to finish up work before another even earlier morning tomorrow.  Oiy.  Thank goodness the weekend is coming and so is MY BESTIE!!!  Yay!!!

[[Side Note: Time

I had a Side Note on my mind after reading this post by Mish and this one by Katie, but I gotta get to bed.  Read them and enjoy...I'll be writing about them soon! ]]

    I love reading your posts! You feel like an old friend. So sorry about the flat tire. No fun at all but good attitude! My fiance is laying in bed next to me making cat noises after seeing pics of Honey. :)

    Aww, Honey is the cutest! In my experience, female cats all have attitudes, especially my Bandit. It makes them even cuter in my opinion! So sorry about your flat tire again. At least you are a tire-changing pro by now!

    i always think the storms will scare the cats too, but I guess unlike dogs they don't get it so don't have a reason to be scared :)

    Ugh, three flats in a month? Bad luck galore!! I feel like karma is going to bring you something great soon though :)

    Whatever voodoo lady you pissed off, you better apologize! I think she has it out for you and your car. ;)

    I feel ya on time. Between school + Sound Eats + HLB + studying + working out/ yoga + oh yeah, this little thing called my marriage + hopefully soon working again….yeah, I feel ya on the need for more time!

    We totally make it work though. We are never handed anything that we can't handle, and honey, we are super strong women! Not to mentions supah-fine to boot. ;)
