Soooo, long story short, behold what ended up becoming a Nothing Much Day.
I can't get my boycat (the big boy on the left) to stop bothering me at MIDNIGHT for breakfast. So there you go. Day starts early. Too early.
I was going to do fancy pants oatmeal to have a fun photo-op for the day but then decided I didn't want that and went with tatertots in the air fryer (love that air fryer) and fake bacon. But of course I'm having the ol' morning coffee (with vanilla soy creamer)
Obligatory selfie. I'm overdue for waxing the upper lip. LOL Meh.
Car selfie! My car has been making rattling noises when it's cold and it has been FRIKKING FRIGID lately. So stalling to take out the trash and taking a pic of the car while it warmed up a smidge helped.
Good ol' Whole Paycheck. I was hoping to find Kite Hill fake ricotta but everywhere seems to be out, including here. Phooey.
Stopped for gas on the way home. Why am I not showing myself pumping gas? Because it's New Jersey and we're not allowed to do that. Hmph. Poor dude all bundled up freezing his butt off to pump people's gas.
Back home. I'm upstairs and the second door.
What I picked up at the store aside from the ice cream. With all this you'd think I'd have packed my lunch for work today. But alas, I'm a slacker.
We tried to place an online order for my buddy's dumpling request but their online thing wasn't working so since it's down the street, we "ate out" instead.
Veggie sushi burrito (NOM, though next time I'll leave out the olives) and an orange green tea
Detoured slightly to drive through the park near my place. I was trying to get the car rattle to go away. But it was soooo cold that it wouldn't completely quit. Behold the mighty, mighty Raritan River. Yup.
Back to my place to hang out and watch Sense and Sensibility for the umpteenth time since we hadn't rewatched it in years. We had fun making snarky commentary. Not pictured, the ice cream we ate a couple hours later. I wasn't won over by cashew cream ice cream, alas.
Boy kitty went for the window seat. Girl kitty went for her usual heat-seeking pose smashed against the heater
Buddy needed to run an errand before going home so I went with. We made the cashier laugh since that's our thing. Evidently the guy in line behind us was amused by my imitation of a nail gun. Pew pew!
She needed extra keys for her elderly parents that lost theirs. This machine is FUN.
No excuse to slack anymore so after buddy went home, I was a good gal and put away my laundry. Worth every penny to have people pick it up and bring it back. Every penny.
Dinner was a Beyond Burger with tomato, delicious pickle relish and garlic faux mayo on a sourdough bun. Soooo good.
When we were movie watching earlier, my new toy showed up so I gave it a test run. Frozen berries, coconut milk and splenda. Yeah, I gotta figure out the whole smoothie thing. It was ok but uninspired. Toy worked well though I thought it would have even more power. I am looking forward to trying to make stuff like homemade hummus and cashew cream in it, though.
So there ya go. Hope you stayed awake. ;)
