I think you can in Europe.
Oh. Mah. Gah. I feel so overwhelmed this week! The weekend was so jam-packed, and I feel like there’s something every single night this week, too. Tuesday Jonathan and I had date night, last night some of us met up to watch a movie and make gumbo (recipe later), tonight we’re carving pumpkins and eating chili, Friday J and I are supposed to go see the Alabama Symphony…good grief, it never stops! Then I have plans for Saturday and Sunday, too. Sometimes I just want to sit at home, curl up under the covers and stay there.
I’ve stayed at work for lunch a few times this week, too, trying to get stuff done. I went to Newk’s and stretched a sandwich out over two lunches. I had the vegetarian club, which has red and yellow peppers, portabella mushrooms, goat cheese and pesto.
Uhhhhhhh, yeah. Don’t mind if I do.
On the side, I got some “Tippah County” Caviar.
You might know this as Cowboy Caviar or just a sort of cold bean salad. It’s black-eye peas, peppers, onion and some sort of oily-vinegary dressing. I was going to go with the fruit cup, but then I remembered the big-ass Honeycrisp apple waiting on me in the work fridge.
I have so many things to blog about, but I just need the world to stop spinning for a sec so that I can get myself together. In the meantime, here are some adorable pictures of Dave.
Oh, and I almost forgot! We found a puppy at work. He was just wandering the streets, covered in dirt and car exhaust. Here are some before and after shots of him (the after was after he’d been bathed).
Isn’t he just the cutest little guy??? I’d love to keep him, but there’s no way I’d be able to have him at my apartment. (Not to mention, Dave would flip out.) My parents were going to adopt him, but I think we successfully found a home for this precious pup. It makes me so sad to see animals out and about, homeless and scared. Have you ever rescued an animal? I totally felt like we’d done our good deed for the day when we saved this little guy.
