Where Is The Water?!Posted: April 7, 2010
Wow we have had a bit of an interesting afternoon around here. I got home easily enough but there was afire at the reservoir and we currently have no water. I am just happy I tested the tap before going for a run because who knows when they will actually get the water back on! I had actually planned on going for a bike ride, but I needed to pick up my bike first…we will get to that but first lunch!
Chewy + figgy + oaty. I really liked how the pumpkin seeds got crunchy in the oven.
So back to the bike story. It was supposed to be ready this afternoon and when I finally got the call at 5:30 I was ready to pick her up. Again I am glad I couldn’t go for a ride considering I can’t shower.
Well when we got to REI they pulled the wrong bike off the shelf to give me…uhhhh that is going to work. They had fixed the wrong bike. I guess they were two bikes with the same last name. They said they had never seen that happen before and would give me some $$ off the labor. I am in no rush so I told them I would be back tomorrow! More money to put towards my road bike!
When we returned from REI I got started on making dinner.
Try making dinner with no water, seriously!
Grilled pork chops with shitake mushrooms, acorn squash, FFL english muffin 1/2 (I was craving carbs), and a salad. Please also note my giant bottle of water due to our water shortage. I haven’t bought a bottle of water in a long time. I actually felt kind of bad…one of my 2009 resolutions was to not use plastic bottles of water. Small pork chops are perfect, smaller than my muffin.
My dessert was an un-pictured dark chocolate raspberry egg. The last one 😦
I am checking the water every five minutes until I go to bed. Bushing my teeth with bottled water should be fun…
Here’s to a better tomorrow!
