“Go ahead and let her go, Baby.”
So I did. It was almost 10:00 at night, pitch black outside and we were alone with the dogs. Easton always gets to run off leash during our walks but Kima is always tethered to me. HP was right there so I let go of her leash and they darted in circles, jumping on each other, and wrestling in the dark. They went way off to the treeline and HP whistled for them to come back.
They started bolting toward us at full speed and my brain almost had a moment to process before Kima ran THROUGH me at full force. She swiped both of my legs out, ran under me, and I came down flat on my back. We were all quiet and I only half remember HP in an almost whisper, “Baby? Are you ok?”
I nodded yes and then looked around and realized I was on the ground. And started laughing. Hard.
My big girl LAID ME OUT. Once I stood up and we assessed that nothing was broken, sprained, and I hadn’t landed in dog poop we didn’t stop laughing for an hour. I was a little shaken up but hot damn it was funny.
I have revised my resume for the sixth time in a month and it’s definitely the strongest version yet. Well, we’ll see about that I suppose. I applied to a few jobs in Denver this morning and a boatload of local postings as well. I suppose something has to stick soon? Right?
Last night I broiled up some eggplant with just a little olive oil drizzled over it and salt and pepper. I ate a few slices for dinner smothered in one of my all time favorite, no cook sauces:
Sweet Pepper Tomato Sauce
-1/4 – 1/3 cup diced tomatoes (can use fresh or canned)
-1/3 red bell pepper
-1 tsp olive oil
-1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
-water, broth, or other liquid to desired consistency (I use very little and keep it thick)
-salt, pepper, basil, parsely
Mix everything in the magic bullet and voila! Delicious, sweet sauce!
I had a little sauce left over and thought that I could take it to work for a snack with some more of the eggplant and then it occurred to me to just add the eggplant to the sauce and blend it. I ended up with a sweet, babaganoush-ish/tapenade type dip. I cut up some carrot sticks and I can’t wait until I’m hungry in a coupld hours to devour it!
Off to the gym tonight for some chest and arms plus cardio. I’ve been good about getting in 3-4 miles at least 4 times a week. If I can get it to a consistent 5 times per week I’ll be very pleased!
I picked a penny up off the ground yesterday because it was heads up. How long does it take for the luck to kick in?
