Yesterday the men drove north – out of the city – to practice some driving when they came upon a farm which sold pasture-fresh meat and eggs.
They brought home the most amazing looking steaks and chops I’ve seen in a long time.
This is what the eggs look like:
I spent the day at home puttering, not writing, gardening, and trying to keep puppy entertained.
Tucker was very interested in my contraband tulips.
Still no sign of the neighbours. Are they ever coming back? Nobody seems to know…
Puppy decided to find himself a nice spot for a nap at some point during the afternoon.
I don’t know what it is with the canines (and felines) seeking out tight, uncomfortable-looking spots. I mean, he could stretch out along the whole couch but chooses to squeeze in the corner by the mismatched pillows.
And then he curled up into this little ball of fur. 🥰
What else happened on the weekend?
I grilled food on the recently cleaned BBQ. This is how I like to eat to lose or maintain weight:
That’s broccoli-rabe (rapini) steamed and fried with red onion and a squeeze of lemon (and a drizzle of maple syrup), grilled eggplant with Parmesan, grilled chicken on a sesame ginger dressing, and grilled bell peppers.
I have leftovers. May mix it with some quinoa today and make a protein bowl.
We’re in a cool spell. The rain forecast has so far not happened (yet), although there’s been some drizzle here and there. I’m not unhappy about that although I do wish it was warmer by now.
The lockdown continues to at least May 20th, although I doubt it will be lifted by then. The third wave is hitting us hard…or so they have us believe. I don’t know what to believe anymore.
Good morning Monday, better be good to me. 🙂
PS Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for Tarot Tuesdays!
