Mi casa

I spent all morning cleaning my place in preparation for tonight’s game night. My place isn’t always this immaculate so I decided to seize the opportunity and snap pictures of my place while it lasts!

I stole the above idea from the incredibly talented Tara Whitney.

Midnight ramblings

I’m having trouble sleeping tonight. My basset hound, Siena, is going in for a surgery in the morning to have her sebaceous cyst removed and her teeth cleaned. Nothing life-threatening but I’m still worried. After having lost Dante last September, I’m a little overprotective of her.

Anyway, instead of lying wide awake in bed waiting for sleep to come, I’ve decided to blog.

For lunch today, I had what may be the most amazing Gravad Lax (raw cured salmon) I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. I bet you’d never guess where. You ready? The cafe at IKEA! Told you you’d never guess! After taking the first bite, I knew I just had to buy some so I got four packages at a surprisingly low price of $4.99 each. And it’s healthy, to boot!

Once Kim and I finished our lunch, we went on a little shopping spree. I feel like a kid in a candy store every time I walk in. I have had my eyes set on their Hopen bedroom furniture but logic took hold and I decided to wait until I win the lottery or something. I ended up buying a couple of frames, lamps and a pot.

After that, I went to pick up my bike…all tuned up and ready to go! I’m excited.

This is second day of my healthy regimen and I’m already feeling more energetic than usual. That could be the other reason why I’m not able to sleep.

Okay, I’m going to bed, or at least try to. A long, busy day awaits me.
