A Strange Day
When I woke up this morning, my plans were to get in a quick workout, shower, and prepare my son’s breakfast for when he got up, but as I was pulling on my t-shirt there was a bright flash of light accompanied by a giant BANG! And out went the power. I looked out the window to see one of our beloved backyard squirrels standing at attention, startled by the noise. The sky was dark and grey, but since the storm hadn’t started yet I had no idea what could have caused the transformer to blow. We spent a couple of hours in the nearly dark house waiting for the power to come on when I started watching the men working behind our house. And I looked at just at the wrong moment, or else I would have blissfully continued to have no idea what happened to cause the outage, but there was a big guy in a yellow hard hat carrying off one of our lifeless squirrel friends by its little paw. I’m so sad; just yesterday I was out taking pictures of them playing!
By the time the power was back on it was almost time for lunch. I made food for my husband and son first, and was putting their plates on the table just as the husband walked in the door for lunch, handed me a piece of paper and said, “Happy Anniversary”. (Our anniversary is the 14th.) What?! It was a printed receipt from an order placed on Amazon just minutes previously for a Vita-Mix!! I was so surprised and confused that I forgot to even make myself lunch or eat. In fact, I’ve been wandering around accomplishing nothing ever since then! Even this post is sort of wandering aimlessly, isn’t it?! If you have a Vita-Mix (and it’s always felt like most of the food blogging community does), what are your favorite recipes or things to make? I want to be prepared with plans for things to make when it arrives! I hope everyone is having a great day. I’ll be back later with a (hopefully) more coherent dinner post.
