If you can't tell, I've decided to go with the "enjoy it for what its worth" option as opposed to the "laying in a swamp" option. Things could really be a lot worse; I still have half a job, at least! And even though I had to pay $430 in emergency credit (eek) to replace calipers and brakes on my car today, it needed to be done, and such is life.
SO, I am making the most of things by enjoying the time I have to myself now! Today was a beautiful Friday in North Carolina, and I spent the majority of my day doing the following:
- Sitting outside and enjoying the amazing 80 degree weather! It was warm, sunny, with a nice breeze, and beautiful blue skies like that one up there.
- Watching the jillions of little yellow butterflies romp through the trees :)
- I reheated some chili for lunch and ate it out there too... soooo good!! I LOVE chili with cheese and sour cream... mm mm, nothing better.
- Listened to some great music, and just relaxed and enjoyed the day.
Mr. Cats has been the best boyfriend ever and is taking me out to dinner tonight, after taking me out to dinner LAST night too! <3 Fondue last night, and off for some yummy local seafood in a bit.
I am looking to enjoy some of these yummy seafoods tonight. What is your favorite seafood? I have to admit, before I started dating Mr. Cats, I hated seafood. And I'm from New England, yeah, I know! But now I loooove it. My favorites would have to be grilled shrimp, grouper, and sea bass. I love grouper with a citrus glaze and pineapple salsa, or sea bass done in a nice teriyaki ginger. Yummmm!! And shrimp in ANY form is just dandy with me, thanks. My least favorite would probably have to be tuna, it has a very strong taste, and is a very "meaty" fish. Oysters also are not cool with me. So slimy... ugh.
Here's hoping everyone has a relaxing pre-Halloween weekend! :)
