How cute is this picture of Daisy and Ivy? I'm learning that dogs are much easier to photograph than cats. I feel so bad because I haven't been able to walk them, and I don't know when I will again. Temps have been 100 plus here in SLC, and show no sign of cooling anytime soon. So we try to make the best of the backyard. But it's still so hot that there isn't much fun to be had for any of us. My whole life summer has been my time. I love being outdoors and soaking up the sun, but I'm absolutely hating summer this year. I can't stand to be outside to be honest. This is way too extreme. And it might sound crazy, but I miss humidity. This dryness is really killing me. My eyes hurt when I get home, and I'm just really, really miserable. I am so incredibly homesick for the mild weathered Seattle. Sorry for the rant, it wasn't planned but I need to express myself.
Here's Daisy bringing her ball back to me. As you can see the backyard is super dry, the grass is like straw, and like I said, we just try to make the best of it.
I love orange sunflowers. You don't see them very often. This cheered me up a bit when I saw it.
I've been eating super simple meals. Even though my apartment has AC, when I get home I'm so drained from the heat I just can't be bothered to be super fancy or creative.
I had this gluten free pasta with sun dried pesto the other night. I shredded some collard greens and cooked them with the pasta. I added lots of nooch and crushed red pepper to the final product. Easy one pot meal and it was really tasty too.
Last night I made quinoa and collard greens, and tossed them with a mustard and apple cider vinegar vinaigrette. I also had curry fries. I am so incredibly happy that I have mastered fluffy quinoa! It's just so much more delicious when it's fluffy and not mushy and soggy.
I actually got Afro to watch birds for cats for awhile! She got bored after a few minutes though. It's really only Roxy and Joan who will watch the whole show. But while she was into it, she was REALLY into it.
And here's Kanye lounging like her life depends on it. Someone on Instagram pointed out that this picture is almost NSFW!
