Look What I Found!

I was at the produce market, and in the middle of the store there was a pile of these gems, just waiting for me to pick them up 🙂

First of the season lychees! Yum! I love these things, and you don’t see them in stores that often unless you head to the Asian markets. They were a bit on the pricey side, so I only got a dozen, but I’m excited.

I also picked up the cutest butternut squash. I really should have put something else in the picture to give it some scale, but it’s perfect for one.

After all that shopping, I hit up the gym. I was one sweaty beast after some stair climber & incline treadmill time! And stupid me, I forgot my towel at home. Can we say gross? I know you are all glad I shared that 😉

Obviously I was on the hungry side when I got home, so I pulled some containers out of the fridge and put together a nutritious and delicious lunch.

Leftover tempeh & mushroom gravy over steamed broccoli and brown basmati rice.

I sat outside and ate my lunch while Sienna stood in the doorway, too afraid to come outside. The people who live upstairs were out on their back deck, and she could hear them talking, so she didn’t want to come out. But she was making sure she had a good look, just in case someone came around the corner and she had to run!

She reminds me of a lemur when she stands up like that. So cute 🙂

And then…things went downhill. I suddenly felt so nauseous, it was ridiculous. I keep trying to think of something I’ve eaten in the last 24 – 48 hours that would have been off, and I can’t come up with anything. I felt a little off this morning, but I chalked it up to the raw onions on my hot dogs last night. Ugh. So I went for a walk to the mall to run a couple errands, and it may or may not have been a good idea. I was sweaty & chilled, and I still feel like crap. I am not impressed with this. I think I’m going to have to put my fun dinner on hold, because I don’t want to eat it if I’m just going to feel like ass afterwards. Le sigh. I’m still going to do my baking tonight for the BBQ tomorrow, so at least that will be fun.

Off to go lie on the couch and hopefully feel better.

    Oh my Sienna! I love her!
    She’s so smart, looking around like that.
    When Henry sits up we say we looks like a meerkat. 🙂

    Oh, boy I sure do hope your feeling better! (((HUGS)))

    I stared at the lychees for a good 5 minutes while shopping Friday, but didn’t get any. I’ve never had one before and haven’t a clue what to do with them! Can’t wait to see what you do to them so I can run and grab a few before they’re gone!

    PS..I just want to reach through the computer and give Sienna a belly scratch! 🙂
