I’ve been quite the moody monster today. It’s just been one of those days. The kind of day where you are constantly on the brink of tearing up, releasing huge sighs and just feeling frustrated/lost/sad. I think it’s a combination of the gloomy weather, lack of sleep and feeling so confused about life.
It really didn’t help when I dumped 1/2 a large tub of yogurt on the counter and then proceeded to spill my smoothie all over the kitchen counter less than a minute after. Smooth. Real smooth…and not in a smoothie kinda way.
I just gotta put on a big fat SMILE! (I randomly found this splash of water on the kitchen counter the other day. Cool, huh?)
[Note: I scooped the yogurt back into the tub and put it in the fridge. It takes a lot for me to throw away food. I have faith in the cleanliness of our kitchen counter!]
Aside from my clumsiness and moodiness, it was actually a pretty good day overall. I walked a whole bunch of errands and had a fabulous heart-pumping workout.
I woke up at the crack of dawn to watch Caitlin on the TODAY Show (No, I do not live on the West Coast–8:30AM is early for me!). I kept announcing to my family, “my blogger friend is gonna be on TV!!” Okay, so maybe I’ve only met Caitlin once and she most likely wouldn’t recognize me on the street but I read her blog every day so in my mind, we’re friends . Plus, she follows me on Twitter. That counts for something, right? I’m going to say that to people when she becomes famous…oh wait, SHE IS FAMOUS!
Needless to say I was so so proud of her!
Afterwards, I took advantage of my early wake-up call to walk some errands. I walked a 2-mile loop that took me to:
- the library (returned books)
- Barnes and Noble (found Operation Beautiful!)
- Best Buy (bought a UV filter for my camera lens)
- Harris Teeter (got nothing)
- the bank (deposted $$)
- Trader Joe’s (got lots!)
Thank goodness I didn’t delay my errands because it started storming a few hours later.
Over the past couple of days, I’ve been a bit lazy with documenting my random nibbles. A lot of Puffins+almond milk, cottage cheese, dates, almond butter, bananas, and wine glasses of kefir. Just the LLE usual!
Aside from the above, I had a melon that my dad picked up for me (I think it is a Korean Melon. Clearly, I am not Korean or I would know.).
It was a very mild tasting melon, like cantaloupe but not quite as sweet.
I scooped out the seeds and stuffed it with whipped cottage cheese, frozen pomegranate seeds, sunflower seeds, crushed Puffins, and chia seeds.
I put the other half in my Kale Blueberry Melon Yogurt Smoothie. <–all the ingredients!
Thankfully, I didn’t spill my smoothie a 2nd time or it would have tumbled down 9 floors!
A Peter’s Kitchen dish: Cod with Mushrooms and Scallions
Microwaved egg whites + a ketchup SMILE (this one I drew).
I currently have this beauty in the oven for dinner. This is bound to perk me up! Fingers crossed I don’t drop it on the ground while taking it out of the oven. Although, we all know I’d probably just scoop it up and eat it!
I’ll tell you all about my creation tomorrow along with my TJ’s purchases and my sweaty Betty workout.
Tell me: Have you ever been on TV? What’s your worst clumsy kitchen catastrophe?
