Doesn’t everyone love waking up at 6am? Today was the last day of watching the LBM, so I had to wake up a bit earlier to fold sheets and straighten up around my foster house. I woke up early on my own (I was going to let myself “sleep in” until 6:30am), so I had plenty of time to enjoy my GM.

The Death of Internet
It’s very difficult to blog without internet connection. I had a full shift yesterday, got back to the LBM house around 9:30pm, hooked my computer directly into the internet connection and… nothing. I’m really not techno-savvy at all! I’m lucky I figured out the hack so I could reply to comments! I’m sorry for this blog being belated, but it looks like it’s going to have to be this way until I’m finished dogwatching on Sunday.
Recap for yesterday: Had a GIGANTIC purple Monsta. I mean, HUGE! It filled a 22oz. wheat beer glass with hardly any room to spare.
Work was really busy, and I only had about an hour to study my homebrewer book :(. I made up for it at lunch though. I packed my own lunch in an effort to save money.
Libraries and Infomercials
Is everyone loving their Saturday as much as I am? (I know it isn’t ACTUALLY Saturday, but it is for me!) If you have today and tomorrow off, you’d better be living it up – yay midweek weekends! Today consisted of some of my favorite things: Trader Joe’s, the library, bakeries, Natural Cafe and another library :)!
I realized this morning that the spinach at the house I’m dogwatching at was spoiled. I put it in a colander and it was all slimy and gross, so I came back to my house to make a big ole GM for myself and the roommates. Lo and behold, I got back and they were finishing up cleaning the blender. That’s right, they couldn’t survive a day without a GM so they MADE THEIR OWN!!!! Look what I’ve created! The only downside to this was that I had to make my own and only had about four blueberries to include. It came out kind of bland and chunky. I chewed my way through the glass.
Not the smartest thing to eat, but I think I can forgive myself… yes, I definitely forgive myself.
Lunch was a cup of Progresso lentil soup with fresh spinach and a teaspoon of goat cheese mixed in.
A Morning of Firsts, and Lasts
I didn’t mean to… I swear I didn’t! Last night, I promised you all that I’d eat two ice cream bars, but I failed. I only ate one. I guess it’s a good thing that one satisfied me, but after my promises of not lying to you anymore, I felt guilty. Just had to let you all know the truth.
Bad news: I ran out of spinach. There was no GM for me this morning. Instead, I decided to try the overnight oats that I’ve read so much about. I used the vegan version from Oh She Glows. Luckily, I had picked up some chia seeds at Sprouts before the farmers’ market on Thursday, so I was able to throw all the ingredients into a bowl. It looked a little scary…
