I found this cool hot cereal from Earnest Eats, who make my fav oatmeal bars (just don't get the chocolate ones!): Mayan Superfood. It has quinoa, puffed amaranth, oats (I think), pumpkin seeds, other seeds, & cocoa. Of course I topped it with some chocolate chips, too. It's not very chocolaty on its own; next time I'd add more sea salt to it. I don't usually add sweetener to my oats; I like them salty. Lots of fiber & protein!
We could not get a sample from Lola yesterday. I tried, the vet tried; she simply stopped peeing anytime you got near her & he didn't think it seemed bad enough to use a needle or put her on antibiotics. He said if she got something surgary from DH's backpack it could cause this reaction & since it all started that night, it seems like a likely explanation.
He gave me some cranberry chews as a precaution. She made it thru last night ok again & while she pee'd immediately this morning (normally there's at least 10 minutes of sniffing & circling first), she wasn't desperate to get out there like she was yesterday. Crossing fingers that she goes back to normal soon.
My knee is complaining a bit after yesterday's run - was fine the last few days - and it finally dawned on me that maybe it's my sneakers. I got a new pair about a month ago, but I rotate between 2 pairs & the other pair, which I wore for yesterday's run, is older. I hope that's the cause, anyway. My last couple of long runs have felt pretty strong, even without my running partner.
I must say I like having my nails done again. I like the convenience of the nail strips. I went looking at amazon for the ones I've been using & they're cheaper there, but other people had trouble getting them off like I did. They mentioned incoco.com
. There's free shipping if you order $50 & I've been drooling over them . . .
. . . as well as the swimsuits at splish.com
which I just read about on a blog . . .
Boy it just sure doesn't feel like the middle of August here but I'm enjoying the cooler mornings!
