Don’t worry, I didn’t see one…but I saw it’s evidence. I’ll spare you a picture of it’s err, presence, but just be forewarned if I come back hollering about a bear one of these days! That’s what happens when you work up at 8,000ft in the mountains!!
Anyhow, it was C.O.L.D. this morning! Having oats is always what I want when it’s cold like that, you know, only 36* in the middle of May. Oiy. But, I was hesitant since the last few times I’ve had oats it has put me into debilitating pain. I haven’t changed anything in the way I have made them: water, oats, cinnamon, apple, and plain pb, but still. It took longer this time for the discomfort to hit, but boy did it hit hard! I’ve finally learned my lesson…thank goodness it’s almost summer. Well, I hope.
I had a full morning of field work and luckily the second half of my field day was done close to home, so I decided to go there and make lunch instead of eating the one I packed (boring pb and banana). I made a smoothie in a bowl with protein powder, mango, blueberries, almond breeze and topped with kashi go lean.
Then, it was up the mountain I went! Of course I brought a few snacks!
Ok, no joke, this granola is like crack. I can’t even describe how delicious it is. I want to buy it in bulk, NOW. I only have one bag…as I gave my dad the other…Yum!
Oh mountains mountains…
LOOK! There’s the ICE!
I can see the entire desert and valley from where I’m at…
What’d I tell you…SUMMER, HURRY UP AND COME!!! I DON’T’ WANT RAIN/SNOW THIS WEEKEND!!!
I’m loving the change of scenery from the desert surveys, although I must say I’m going to miss the heat. Or maybe not come July. haha.
I had a bit too much granola this afternoon so I wasn’t too hungry for dinner. Simple salad with meatless meatballs from TJ’s with a sandwich thin. Oh, and two PB Cookies for dessert.
These will not last long in this apartment. At. All.
And I was supposed go on a run with a friend this afternoon after work (12 hours long) but my friend ended up not being able to go and I was thinking I was still gonna go no matter what. But, I made the mistake of grabbing my mail, laying down with Honey to read it…then never getting back up. Dangit. And now my brain is on fire with negative thoughts…
Tomorrow is another day…
