Reading: Dark Places. After I finished Gone Girl, it was suggested that I should read one of Gillian Fynn's other books. This book is really good but the premise behind the book is beyond dark. It is downright disturbing.
Listening to: Spa music. I know, it's random. A and I have been tuning to the music channel through our cable provider while we are working, cleaning house, or cooking. It's very peaceful.
Watching: Mindless and ridiculous reality TV shows like Bachelor, Celebrity Apprentice, Survivor and Ultimate Fighter. Hubby and I watch these shows together. It's our thing.
Relishing: My new relationship with this muscular, strong, handsome fellow named Ariiq. He is a beautiful, well behaved Arabian. Ariiq has been very patient with me as I transition from western to english riding. The saddle is so much smaller. It's been challenging but fun!
Melting over: My new scarf. How cute is this thing.
Addicted to: Green shakes. They are the best! It is so nice to be able to fit in so much nutrients into one meal. You can really pack in the veggies with just a small amount of fruit and it still tastes good.
Excited about: My mission trip to Mexico. 9 days til departure. Yikes!
Cooking: So many good vegan recipes. Here is one of my faves and super easy.
Kale Avocado Salad
1 head of shredded kale
1 large diced tomato or red bell pepper
1 1/2 chopped avocado
3 tbsp hempseed oil
2 tbsp finely diced green onion
1 juiced lemon
1 tsp sea salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Handful of pumpkin seeds
In a large mixing bowl, toss all ingredients together, squeezing as you mix to "wilt" the kale and cream the avocado. Top with pumpkin seeds. Serve immediately.
Waiting for: My consult with Dr. Surrey at CCRM. Finished all of my paperwork and got all of my records in. My appointment is May 1st but I'm on the cancellation list so hopefully it won't take that long.
Thankful for: This guy.
Your turn. What's currently going on in your world?
