TWTW - the one where it was nice outside for five minutes

Friday was another WFH day and due to an alarm snafu at night that required a visit in the morning I was unable to get out and get my gift card manicure and pedicure on so I did them myself: nails in OPI Purple Palazzo Pants and toes in Excuse Me, Big Sur!

Friday night was MFD's campaign benefit to celebrate getting on the ballot. I have literally two photos and none of us together. Thanks to our friends and fam who came out to support MFD! It makes this whole thing feel much less isolating. because that's something else no one tells you about your spouse running for office: it's isolating and the importance of my people has never been clearer. After cleaning up we got home around 11:40 and I fell asleep around 1. 
Saturday morning he was off to DC and I was off to the shore with los perros to chill. And chill I did in more ways than one...the wind had a winter underbite to it. I went to the library, walked the beach and boards, took the dogs on 408 walks, cleaned the apartment, and decided to come home at night in lieu of waking up to a 40s and rainy Sunday there.  I just needed to put my bare feet in the sand and connect with the earth
Sunday was a very slow start. I got up late, only had one cup of coffee, and trolled around. It was gray and cold outside and I wasn't inspired to do much aside from some laundry and shower and reading.  That sounds sort of like what a recipe for Sunday is, I guess? 

Weekly food prep: hard boiled eggs and power breakfast muffins for breakfast, hummus/veggies/pita for lunch, dinner is deconstructed chicken parm over farfalle with a spinach/cucumber/onion salad - dregs of the produce drawer. I also made Kodiak blueberry lemon protein muffins to freeze. Still cleaning out my freezer and pantry and I'm actually using most stuff in a way that makes sense. I'm impressed. 




How was yours?

  1. I spent most of Saturday in Frankfort standing around in the capitol on the last day of the legislative session. Standing on the marble floors and steps put a hurting on my hips and hamstrings, so I was down for the count most of yesterday. The weather yesterday was also dismal and blah and, like you, I didn't feel inspired to do much of anything. Glad you were able to dip your toes in the sand this weekend, though, even if only for a little bit.

  5. I'm impressed with all your food prepping! I'd like to get better about getting the whole week's worth of breakfasts made. And with using up what's in my freezer!!

  6. So glad the event went well! Toes in the sand will cure anything and is so good for the soul. Our Saturday sounds like your Sunday, it did not stop raining! Have a good week, I am going to make some power muffins this week, because my experimental beet pancakes are gross.

  7. It's been warm here but instead of cold weather on Sunday we had tornadoes! Sometimes even the act of going to the nail salon is a chore and I don't have time. Doing my own nails is the absolute least stressful way for me!

  9. Sounds like the event went well! Congrats to MFD! I need to check out those power muffins, I made two batches of your no bake energy balls this weekend. That is one of my all time favorites to keep around the house to keep me from eating cookies and crap.

  13. I may have to try your muffin recipe - I'm always terrible at prepping anything for it and am in such a rush most mornings I don't make good choices. Glad you go to chill a bit after the party Friday night!
