I’m linking up with What I’m Loving Wednesday!
I’m loving this spring weather! I wish it would stay spring-like forever. All year. I can do without the 20 degree winter that we skipped this year and I LOATHE the summer heat. Gawd, I hate sweating – and I’m really good at it.
I went to the Bicentennial Mall Park or whatever it’s called and had my lunch. Picnic style! It was so lovely.
I’m loving homemade guacamole. I found amazingly perfect avocados at our dumpy little grocery store. I whipped up some homemade guac (Rog’s recipe – to come soon) and it was divine. We ate it all over the course of 24 hours. Gone.
I eat it on chips, I eat it on eggs – I eat it from ships and on my sea legs. Take that Dr. Suess.
I’m loving Hank for Senate. Meet Hank.
Yep – Hank is a Cat. And running for U.S. Senate in Virginia.
Too bad he’s not on the Republican Primary ballot. Look at those eyes – so trusting and wise.
Speaking of ignorant things – did you Tennesseans see what former Congressman Lincoln Davis said after he was denied the right to vote because he doesn’t know where he’s registered?
“If I had moved here from somewhere else recently, maybe I could understand it,” said Democrat Davis. “But a former congressman, a former state senator and a civic leader … and nobody even notified me I’d been taken off the rolls?”
“Now I know how the black man must have felt a hundred years ago,” he said in a telephone call to a reporter.
Oh no. Oh no you di’int. I worked in government relations for quite some time and closely with LD from time to time, and always enjoyed him. However, it seems maybe he’s out of practice when it comes to talking to reporters. talking. Not your finest hour, pal.
Back to what I’m LOVING Wednesday – because it’s not politics.
I’m loving that I ate ground beef from Wal-Mart last night that was 5 days expired and didn’t die! Or even get sick – all because I’m too cheap to throw food away. I did get online and see if that was “too expired” to eat, and many websites said not to touch it with a ten foot pole, including the USDA’s site. But then, I found an anonymous comment on Wiki Answers (where everything is gospel, right?) that said “If it’s brown, don’t chow down. If it’s red, eat it Fred!” Good enough for me. Jenn, 1 – Meat, 0.
I’m loving that I signed up to be a Girls on the Run running buddy, today!
Girls on the Run uses the power of running to help prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Through interactive activities such as playing games, running, discussing health, wellness and other important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being girls. The girls are empowered with a greater self-awareness, a sense of achievement and a foundation in team building to help them become strong, confident, well-balanced young women.
As a running buddy, I will run with and help pace a young girl during a 5K practice run and during the Girls on the Run 5k in May. So excited to meet my little running buddy!
I’m loving Good Reads. It’s social networking, but for book worms. If you read, you need to be on Good Reads! I just learned about it, but it’s a great way to keep up with what you read, see what your friends are reading and how they rate the book, and to keep up with your reading wish list. I used to keep a running list of books I wanted to read in my Gmail – and this is so much easier! Sign up – then find and friend me so I can see what you’re reading!
Lastly, I’m loving my morning routine with Miss Callie Cat. I wake up, she bounces off the bottom of the bed where she slumbers, and meows and talks all the way to the bathroom sink. I lift her up there (wouldn’t want her to strain her fat self) and she drinks water and visits with me while I do my make up.
Then, she gets down from the bathroom counter and sits at the bedroom door until I finally open it. She wants to go back to bed with Rog.
She cuddles up with him until he gets up.
Think she’s rotten? I do. And have no idea how she got that way.
That’s what I’m loving, today! Hope you love lots of things, too.
