☂ So rainy out there! Yuck. But how are ya? シ
Wow. Is it really getting dark out there already? I just got home, can you believe it? Where did the day go? This week is moving along super-duper quickly for some reason.
I had a mandatory school meeting this afternoon and I didn’t get anything done yet. So this will be a quick one. I’ve got so much to do! The kitchen is a mess, TS doesn’t have any lunch for tomorrow yet (he won’t be home the whole day), and I’ve got a TON of homework that is due!! Yeah, life is busy as a beaver arounf here, but no matter how hectic it gets, I always, always make time for a nice, sit-down meal I really
hate don’t like eating on the go from boring white plastic containers. Some people eat all their meals like that, every day. Not me. Nope! U-uh!
♨ I hope that TS and I will always find time to light a candle and eat together
Breakfast today was a slice of toasted whole wheat bread with Tofutti soy cream cheese and strawberries.
For an in-between snack I had this (I always carry fruits and/or veggies in my purse):
Then, a quick stop at home for lunch: a big salad (Romaine lettuce, pears, carrots, red bell peppers and cabbage) with a mix of spicy beans and lentils, for some needed protein. It was SO good. A perfect combination of tastes! But do you wanna know what was even better?
This beauty!!! Dark chocolate almond milk. I’m not a big chocolate milk fan, but this I really, REALLY like! Thumbs up for Silk!!!!!!!!!
And a quick, light dinner: an open-face “sandwich”!
Homemade tuna salad with cut-up spring onions, bell peppers and radishes on Romaine lettuce leaves. With a side of juicy organic Jonathan apples. Doesn’t seem like much, but it was very satisfying. Very delish! I’ll post the recipe for it this week sometime if you’re interested.
And for the rest of the evening: homework, cooking, dishes/cleaning, and exercise (while watching the Biggest Loser show for some extra motivation!).
One of the reasons I like writing this blog is because I love challenging myself to learn/use new English words. I love looking up new vocabulary and trying to use them right away in conversations. Sometimes I make awful, TERRIBLE mistakes, haha, but that’s how you learn a language, right? By trial and error. I especially love American expressions and slang.
So here is a fun slang that I have never, ever heard before:
antwacky (adjective) Meaning: old-fashioned or unstylish. Usage: “There’s no way I’m buying that antwacky dress.”
I’m gonna go now, put on my “antwacky” pajama and get comfy
