Heat wave coming
Friday, June 28, 2013
Summer is definitely here -- this weekend we're supposed to get temps in the neighborhood of 103!
(I know Spark says I posted this blog on Friday morning. Here in California it's still Thursday night.)
This evening my boss actually said she's worried about me. She said she watched me walk across the parking lot last night and was afraid I'd lose my footing because I seemed so off-balance. I glossed over it and said I'm managing, but the truth is I have the same worry. The mobility is definitely a concern, but in this heat who wants to move! I've got to think of something.
I got the new produce box yesterday. tons of goodies like white donut peaches (my new obsession), black figs (even bigger obsession), heirloom tomatoes, red lettuce, summer squash, baby potatoes and lots of other yummies.
This morning I got to work and the yogurt I took for breakfast had spoiled! I ended up eating the ham sandwich that was supposed to be lunch for breakfast and had some cherry tomatoes and two plums for lunch. I was definitely hungry by the time I got home! Dinner tonight was a big tuna salad with veggies from the produce box and a can of tuna. I think I'm going to stop buying the cheap tuna and start buying something a bit more quality to make better salads.
I also recently bought a bag of white quinoa. I think I'm going to cook a batch of it and use it with the veggies and canned salmon to make dinner or lunch salads. Quinoa is a recent discovery, and I really love it.
One more day to the weekend. Tomorrow is not only month-end (always crazy in a financial business like I'm in), but it's the end of the fiscal year. Hopefully I'm in a position to leave on time tomorrow night, but who knows?
Come on Saturday!
