Cat Day

24 Jan

Today was my one day off this week and I chose to spend the day being lazy, who says I don’t know how to live my best life? πŸ˜‰

You may be thinking a lazy day meant I slept in but you’d be wrong. πŸ˜› I was actually up early, distressingly early, le sigh, but that’s ok because it meant I had ample time for a nap on the living room chair and there’s just something about a good nap that is so decadent feeling.

Not only did I have a late morning nap but I also dozed off in the afternoon, and almost again in the evening. I forced myself to get up when I started to doze off that last time because I do have to be able to sleep tonight ya know. Today may be lazy but tomorrow is me working both jobs and hopefully squeezing in a workout so ya know, the total opposite of today.

Guess which day I like better! lol

When I was forcing myself to not nap that third time I looked at the cat and realized I was living my cat’s best life. This is basically how he spends his day, minus watching Netflix that is. He naps, gets up to go to the bathroom or get something to eat, then relaxes, then falls in to another napping session, aaaaand repeat.

Pro-Level napping!

So, my lazy day was actually me doing my absolute best imitation of my cat.

Man do I want my cat’s life! lol

The only difference was by the end of the day I did a bit of decluttering in the bathroom and I caught up on some work emails because I won’t have time tomorrow before job number 1 starts. So I guess I didn’t quite have a work free day today, but most of it was free from work and since I spent most of it (or so it seems) in various levels of unconsciousness I really can’t complain.

A Delayed Dinner

29 Apr

You know when you wait too long to eat and you are no longer hungry but you know you have to eat? Yeah, sigh, that was me this evening.

I went for a nice long walk (4.94 miles or 7.95 km) and when I got home I decided instead of showering, doing my hair, picking out a semi-decent outfit and running out to take care of a quick errand I’d just go in my workout clothes, that way I could keep my baseball cap on and since it had been raining while I’d been outside I just looked damp, not sweaty. Well, after the errand I got back to my place, showered, got in to comfy clothes, threw a load of clothes in the wash and realized I had missed my “hungry time” and was no longer wanting any food. I was super tired though, which I was attributing to the lack of food in my system. Crap. I hate eating when I don’t feel hungry, ugh.

I figured if I made something yummy it’d waken up my tummy so I popped some salmon in the oven and got to work building a salad to put the salmon on top of. I figure it’s almost May, break out the summer salads! πŸ™‚

Well yeah, my plan failed, lol, I get the meal ready and am staring at it like it is something disgusting instead of something that’ll taste good. Stupid stomach. Obviously I ate it, I knew my body needed the fuel but there was not as much enjoyment out of the meal as there should have been. Also, by the time I was done eating I felt so overly full, even though it was a normal sized salad, that I sat on my living room chair and actually groaned. Groaned! From too much food, that is so not my style lol πŸ˜›

I found some snap peas in the grocery store the other day that are a “complete kit”, it is already washed snap peas with a little package of peanut sauce and a second little package of sesame seeds. According to the instructions on the bag you can either eat the snap peas hot or cold, well, duh lol. I opted to heat up the snap peas and use some of them as topping on the salad, the rest I put in the fridge and will eat tomorrow.

I bought them cause they were on sale lol

Underneath the snap peas there was half an avocado (sliced), yellow pepper (diced), mixed raw veggies (corn, carrot and beans), pumpkin seeds, and mixed greens. Everything except the snap peas and avocado had been mixed with a small amount of light ranch dressing. The snap peas had the peanut sauce and sesame seeds on them and then for the final touch I put the salmon on top.

The final product!

I know the salmon looks a little suspect but I promise it tasted good! It is from M&M Meat Shops, you can buy these great salmon steaks individually packaged and they come with a variety of sauces, this one was herb & garlic. The reason the salmon is cut in half is because when I took it out of the oven at the 17 minute mark, when the packaging said it would be done, it was so obviously not cooked that I cut it in half and put it back in the oven. I am always paranoid about not cooking my meat or seafood properly and giving myself food poisoning so I’d rather cut something in half so I can be sure it is cooked and risk my meal not looking pretty if it means I can feel safe putting the food in my mouth lol πŸ˜›

Despite the random combination of flavours (the fish being herb & garlic, the snap peas being coated in peanut sauce and the rest of the salad being tossed in a small amount of ranch dressing) everything gelled quite nicely and tasted good. πŸ™‚ …trust me, I wouldn’t have shown it to you if it didn’t lol

I was shocked at how filling it was, I mean c’mon, it is salad! *rolls eyes* but there ya have it, the salad that made me groan because I was so full after eating it. I didn’t even have room for dessert, and that’s just crazy talk! πŸ˜‰
