Could This Be The Day??

Is it possible to actually SEE how hot it is out??  I think it is.  I would take a photo, but I don’t think it would translate.  Anyway, there’s this horrible haze that I saw the minute I looked out of the kitchen window.  I realized the full effect of it when I went outside to put out the trash.  Comcast tells me it’s currently 77 degree (it’s 7:45AM!!) with 89% humidity.  The good news is the humidity will be down to 55% tomorrow but the temperature will be 102!!!  😦   I can’t even THINK about that!!  If you wonder why I am moving to New Mexico…I rest my case!  Even if it’s hot, there’s very little humidity.  I’m sick of this, no other way to say it!

Wednesday started out with exercise for me.  I had been away from it for several days and needed to get back to it.  It felt good.  Coming out into this heat when you’re already sweaty is awful…especially when the car’s A/C is not working. 😦

Breakfast was my wonderful overnight oats.  Boy, am I glad I finally figured out how to make it right.  Yesterday’s batch was actually made with an oat, barley, rye and wheat mixture I bought at Trader Joe’s back in the spring.  It tasted heartier than just the oats.  It’s a nice change and since I didn’t especially like it cooked, it will live out its useful life as overnight oats-plus!!

Can you tell that I’m loving my blackberries?!?  Actually, I should have done a sad face because that was already the last of my blackberries.  I’m proud of myself though because I used to be so bad about buying fruit and letting it go bad, so a pat on the back to me!! 🙂

My afternoon trip to the chiropractor went well, except for the fact of no A/C in the car!  😦  I took the scenic country route though, with all the windows open and Crash Test Dummies blasting…”God…shuffled his feet and looked around…”  I love them.  Their lyrics are so odd, but so clever!  Made me happy…and my back feels better! 

Dinner was salads all around.  Ralph is really starting to enjoy the salads I make for him and it is better for him than some of the other things he eats.  I’m not trying to turn him into a vegetarian, just a healthier omnivore!  😉

I just love the idea of “grilling” veggies to put them in my salad.  My grilling comes in the form of my skillet which I spray with OO cooking spray and sautee.  I do have one of those grill pans that goes across two burners on the stove, but I don’t want to add extra heat to a kitchen that’s hot before you start cooking!!

The round little eggplant turned into…

…this wonderful grilled eggplant.  I used the entire thing in my salad…I just love this!  I think it will stay firmly placed in my repertoire!!

Black-eyed peas are becoming a new fav!

Yum…Yum…Yum!!  I sometimes feel so gluttonous eating my salad out of my Big Purple Bowl, but the whole bowl was about 7 Points.  The points all coming from the cup of black-eyed peas and the balsamic vinaigrette.  I was very full!

Well…I think today is The Day…

I’ve checked the times and there’s a showing at 11:00am.  Now if I can get Ralph awake and ready in time  AND convince him not to make me eat snacks while watching the movie (I have lots of Tootsie Pops in my purse!! 😉  ) then we’ll be all set.

This should be fun…I’ve been looking forward to it.

Happy Thursday…or shoud I say…Happy Potterday!!

    We were at 83 degrees at 7:45 looking at a high of 101 and a heat index of 110. And of course our stone house just loves to hold heat, so 80 is the best the air conditioning can do no matter what. I’ve been watering the tomatoes daily.

    Tomorrow you must fry an egg on the sidewalk and take a picture for us 🙂

    Tonight’s the night for me, too (w/o Mark of course). My friend Kathy and I are going to the 3D show and have sprung the extra money for the 16 seat all-recliner big screen mini-theater where you order your snacks from a waitress who then delivers them to you.

  2. Mmmm, delicious. Well done with the blackberries. Mine actually found their way under my cantaloupe on Saturday. I made sure to eat them by the next day so they didn’t go bad, since they were pretty smushed. They were still so good!

    We’ll need to take another trip soon. Although, I will be in blueberries until next season. 🙂
