Each morning when I get up I stumble over to the backyard window to see if there’s anything out there. This morning something was amiss – one of the squash plants was GONE. G.O.N.E. No trace. I thought for a minute the husband might have moved it to another part of the garden….until I saw the hoofprints . Those damn deer!!! It was so sad – like crime scene. I sprayed our other (bigger) 3 plants with more Deef Off before I left. I sure hope they’re there on Sunday!
I slept until 7:30 this morning since I didn’t get in bed until midnight, which pushed my whole schedule to leave by 9 back and made for quite a busy morning. I was literally whirling around the house getting things ready to go.
I had a piece of toast with PB before I left for the gym -
My hour at the gym was the most relaxing all morning! I did 30 minutes on the Stairs, 10 on the rowing machine for a change, and ran a fast 1/2 mile lap around the track.
Once home, it was rush, rush, rush. I ended up leaving 2 hours later and didn’t have time to eat breakfast or blog, so I quickly threw together a smoothie to take with me:
- 1/2 cup wheatberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup leftover honeydew + blackberries
- 3/4 cup milk
- tbsp flax
NOTE: Wheatberries do not fit in straws!!! They didn’t really get blended (which was fine with me for chew) but I couldn’t use my straw and had to gulp it down.
A few hours later I’m headed to a late lunch and shopping with my mom and sister. Whew! Hopefully I can relax with my Chem take home test this afternoon. We’ve got 7:30 dinner reservations with some friends from high school.
