Hi everyone! How are yoooouu?? (Slowly drawled in a Clark Howard voice.)
I knew I would be getting back from clinical late today, and I so wanted to enjoy this gosh darned nice weather, so I decided to take an early morning run. After sitting on my bottom in my car for 2.5 hours per day the last two days, I knew I needed to get the muscles going.
You know, the only aspect of daylight savings that I don’t like (besides, you know, the lost sleep and disruption of my groove and such) is the fact that it’s so DARK in the morning. If I had been running outside at 6:45 am last week, it would have been sunny. Even so, there’s something nice about moving around when the rest of the world is still asleep. The lake next to the bike path rested serenely under a drifting mist. No pic, of course.
Enjoyed while perusing … the competencies for my dietetics program? Not sure why that was there.
Today, my clinical group started our rotation at a new hospital. This hospital is TINY! I know it’s good to get experience at as many different hospitals as I can, but I do miss the electronic health records at the previous hospital 🙁 I’m not very good at interpreting chicken scratch. Overall, our first day at the new site went well – mentally exhausting, but I think I’m getting the hang of clinical.
Isn’t it nice that we have daylight until nearly 7 pm? I’ll gladly trade my early morning light for enough afternoon light to take a long walk with the doggies. Which we did upon my return from the hospital 🙂
I almost forgot to show you! Remember these sprouts?
Well, after returning from Utah on Sunday, this sight met our eyes:
It’s a jungle in there! Needless to say, we’ve been having a lot of salad all week. I don’t think I’ll grow lettuce in the Aerogarden again. Organic lettuce is $1.99 a head at Stop & Shop, and since I grew two head of lettuce, I saved … $3.98. I think next time I’ll devote Aerogarden space to a veggie more worthwhile, like organic red peppers – those things are PRICE-SAY in the supermarket. Once day, Nicole, I’ll have a garden just like yours! 🙂
Dinner was leftovers from this day, plus a couple of lamb chops Peter cooked sous-vide on Monday (I didn’t post that day). I’ll post about them at some point, because Peter set up the sous-vide himself and it’s impressive!
A little PB dipping action:
Plus a side of Stop & Shop organic lettuce with Annie’s Goddess:
For dessert, I had a mini version of today’s breakfast:
With my hand for scale so that you can see you small but very satisfying portion:
A little quiz for you guys! Can you come up with a caption for this picture?
What is Maddie thinking? I’d love to hear what you think! Here’s one:
“What? Oh, no, I don’t know her …” 🙂
I’ll share any captions you guys send in in my next post. Maybe I’ll turn it into a contest – I haven’t decided yet 😉
Have a nice evening!
