After a busy couple of weeks I had a lovely, quiet day at home. Just me and my dog, Cooper, chilling. I walked him a total of 5 miles today and hooped for a total of 10 minutes, but other than that we just snuggled. I read a book or two, and he napped a lot.
I made Roasted Root Vegetables for dinner and a snack today. Mostly with veggies picked within the last two days. Fresh picked veggies just taste better to me. And I know exactly how far these veggies traveled... 3.47 miles! From the farm to my apartment. I guess you could say I am an opportunistic locavore lol. When the fresh veggies are available I go for them. I have another eggplant and a zucchini, so I guess ratatouille is on the menu again this week.
Tomorrow morning starts another busy week with an early morning walk with a friend. Hopefully it won't be quite as draining as the past couple weeks. Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun with everything I was doing, but it wiped me out. I have things coming up in my schedule that I need to prepare for and I haven't made any time for them yet, so I will have to work on making myself sit down and take care of business this week. I have the self discipline to exercise regularly and eat well, so I know I can apply that same determination to other things in my life. It is just a matter of doing it.
