Today we did indeed hit that 90 degree mark on the thermometer. I think tomorrow is supposed to be much cooler so we are not in a heat wave.
Before D and I went to the book store I had a mini Apple Pie Larabar. I really do like this smaller size. Why will they not make these little gems available in the grocery store? I would buy every flavor.
There were only 3 kids at story hour today. Everyone must have been soaking up the sun. The stories were very cute and D liked all 3.
When we got home it was lunch time. My salad today was nothing out of the ordinary – lettuce, shredded coleslaw mix, roasted red peppers, salsa, hummus and cottage cheese. I at the salad with 2 Corn Thins and 2 rice cakes.
Lunch also included and apple and a Cocoa Loco bar.
After lunch I took D to the park for a few hours. We met one of his friends there and they had fun playing. They brought along a kite so there was some fun trying to get the kite to fly. It was actually very windy which was nice seeing as it was a scorcher out there today.
When we got home I had to toss my filthy monster into the shower – he was a mess. After running around he was so sweaty and dirty. I think that the shower refreshed him because he seemed much more lively. I thought that he was going to fall asleep during the drive home – he looked wiped out.
Then I had a banana with raw almond butter for a snack.
I made another salad for dinner – I wasn’t in the mood for a hot meal and I can not get enough veggies. This one contained lettuce, shredded coleslaw mix, red pepper, zucchini, hummus, salsa and cottage cheese. I also had a gluten free wrap – still not willing to look pretty for the camera.
I did a little experimenting for dessert. I started with a little plain Greek yogurt topped with a few Cupola Chai Pistachio Cookies. The cookies crumbled nicely into the yogurt – it was delicious. I decided to try the same thing with a little more yogurt and Cupola Chocolate Cashew Cookies. Again it was delicious. I really like the texture of the cookies with the yogurt. The cookies almost melt into the yogurt – if that makes sense. A little crispness remained but the mix turned extra thick.
D and I were without Daddy tonight – he is at a Retirement Party. I played a little Lego Star Wars on the Wii with him and then red him a few bedtime stories. After I sang the usual tunes he drifted off within a matter of moments. I think the afternoon of heat and fresh air really did him in.
After he was in la-la land I did some weights. Since I have been running outside more frequently I have been slacking on my weights. It felt nice to use my dumbbells. I made up a little routine as I went along and ended up doing a little over 30 minutes of training.
Time to kick up my feet and relax. I hope you had a great day. Enjoy your night.
