Day 26. January 29, 2016. “Tiger Blood” post 11
4:00 AM. Wide awake. Not groggy. No alarm.
Got out of bed and went to give our dogs a good morning pat, and found that our 13 year old Rottweiler had passed away peacefully during the night. Rest In Peace, Sasha. You’re a good girl and you will truly be missed.
Despite the sadness, I’m thinking “Tiger Blood” again. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast of ground beef hash with 3 eggs incorporated into the hash. A giant mug of organic Jasmine green tea for the running around this morning. Breakfast looked a little something like this:
11:00 AM. Back at the office and eating my lunch. There’s a party happening on my desk! I have my green salad with avocado, side of tuna with home made mayonnaise, and my carrots, celery and apples decided to show up for the group photo. I talked about the tuna on Day 24, but I’ll say it again because I thought it was such a good find: We got the tuna from Costco. I still can’t find a link to the actual product, but if you’re in the store, it’s Kirkland Chunk Light Skipjack Tuna In Water. Again, here’s ‘props’ given to Costco from Greenpeace: http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/costco-announces-sustainable-skipjack-tuna-brand/
1:00 PM. Back home. Finished my work day near the house, so what the heck. I decided on a double shot of espresso for my afternoon sip. Good stuff… I’m putting albondigas together for dinner tonight, and I’ll be making enough to have plenty o’ leftovers for the weekend.
3:00 PM. Heading over to my Mom’s house so we can give her a ride to the airport. Now we have 5 things working against us: 1. Las Vegas 2. Friday Afternoon/Early Evening 3. Rush Hour 4. Airport 5. Time Management (or lack thereof on dear Mother’s part). Shout-out to me mates in Australia and New Zealand – she’s heading your way!!! But I digress. Amped-up on my double shot! Yesssss!
5:30 PM. Back home after the airport run. Put the finishing touches on the albondigas and ate a hearty bowl full of this piping hot heaven in a bowl. Step Two: Re-Introduction discussion taking place tonight – Me: Rice or Crackers to go with the soup would be nice. Jane: Beer. Her mind is pretty much made up. I make my meatballs half chicken and half ground beef:
Both of us decided to have a Caffe Americano after dinner:
9:00 PM. That’s what time I’m going to try to be in bed. Friday Night in Vegas, baby, I’m out of control!!! Seriously, we have a busy day planned for tomorrow.
