oh gosh…i have been everywhere but here.
it’s just been chaos.
the last time i wrote my puppy was calmly resting…today he’s recovering from surgery.
he’s got a cone. i have bruises.
he likes to slam into my legs as soon as i walk in the kitchen. he really likes when i cook. he usually lays somewhere in the middle of my sink and oven…ready to pounce, eat anything i drop on the floor. except carrots…and onions. he doesn’t like onions…
i haven’t been cooking. between back and forth trips to the vet and end of school activities i have hardly been home. friends have moved, there are parties and it’s wedding season at work. it means when i finally get a chance to sit down salad is all i really want to make. it’s all i really have time for.
simple. accompanied by some left over steak my darling husband cooked up for me it’s really all i have been eating.
look how simple this is. perfect for a bbq, perfect with steak or chicken for a quick dinner. perfect to bring to someone’s house for a side.
cross your fingers. 8 more days of school. 3 more days of the cone. then finally, yes finally, the calmness will take over. i will once again have that calm life we have all been yearning for.
