Day 6: Facepalm Kind of Day - Picard

5 Thoughts

  • My work calendar is full of “Eat!” appointments. It’s kind of hilarious when I have to maneuver around those to actually find meeting times.
  • 2 stone ground wheat crackers and a wedge of Laughing Cow original might just be one of my most favorite things to eat these days. You’ll see a trend.
  • I did reach for my beef jerky stash but I did remember today is Meatless Tuesday.
  • Eating a BIG bowl of salad is hard work. Sure, I was working while I was eating my lunch but it did take me the whole hour to eat it all. By that time I was so tired of chewing. I mean, seriously. My jaw is tired.
  • But then I turned around and had a Tim Tam for Afternoon Tea. I guess that bucket of veggies was worth it.

Today’s Photo

I’m currently filling in for my graphic designer. Mind you, I know enough to make pretty things, but it wasn’t my craft. He left me a pretty good building blocks to do what’s needed to be done. I can’t help but stressing out over this a little bit. But, I actually completed a project for him today.

Then I got an email from him who shouldn’t be checking his email today but I was grateful that he did.

“Hey, good work on that. But you used the wrong template.”

And earlier tonight, I should’ve been in bed an hour ago but somebody put laundry in the dryer, turn on the timer, but didn’t actually turn the machine on.

And finally, I had written a recipe post for and somehow I hit Control+Z instead of Control+S to save. Apparently “Redo” for Blogger means delete everything. AND then of course, autosave would happen right after I did that. One hour wasted. Poof. Gone.

Yep. Picard’s facepalm is appropriate for today. - Picard



Fage Fruyo Vanilla Yogurt with half of the Nature Valley Trail Mix Dark Chocolate & Nut bar crumbled into it.

I only like yogurt when it has other texture in it…

Second Breakfast

The other half of that granola bar and some coffee.


2 stone ground wheat crackers and a wedge of Laughing Cow original.

Told you!


Big ol’ bucket of Karen’s Super Fresh Cole Slaw mix with Litehouse Opa Cilantro and Cotija Cheese Greek yogurt dressing.

I friggin’ love that mix of vegetables. I really do. You guys should try it.

Afternoon Tea

A Tim Tam.

It was glorious.


Brandon’s favorite pasta salad: rotini, cheddar cheese cubes, and ham, with Italian dressing. But minus the ham.And then add a splash of balsamic vinegar and Temecula Olive Oil Company Blood Orange olive oil.


A few bites of strawberry Haagen Dazs ice cream.


For those who just now joined in, here’s why I’m going on “The Hobbit Diet” of eating seven times a day for a month.
