Rain, Rain, Go Away

Yup – we are getting more rain today. At least it was pretty for the majority of the weekend – I am hoping it will clear up enough that I can go running after work.

Well, I almost gave in to the just-okay work coffee this morning, but I did not! I had a cup of my Numi Morning Rise Breakfast Blend tea and it hit the spot.I actually got this tea in a package from a friend (Hi and thanks Anne!), but I’ve never seen this brand in any stores here. It’s really good though – I may need to order more when I run out of this one. I also saw on their website that they have a chocolate one with cocoa nibs in it!


I think just smelling coffee in the office is what makes me want it so bad sometimes. I had such great coffee this weekend from our house, and I knew it wouldn’t be the same. I’m proud of myself for resisting!

Lunch today is dinner leftovers from last night – I was so ready to dig into this at lunch time.

Tamale Casserole – even uglier than last night, but still tasty!


A salad with romaine, corn, tomato, and avocado


And the very last of my cantaloupe and pineapple. I still can’t believe it lasted this long! Now I’m sad it’s gone.
