I was blessed with an 85 degree day yesterday! Do you know how amazing that felt after continuous days of 105 degrees? I decided that I was not going to waste it inside, so I headed to Lowes, and grabbed some supplies for more projects! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been doing! I also picked some fresh vegetables from my plants to throw into my dinner!
After working in the sun and crafting, I cooled off in the pool! I finally had the guts to use my underwater camera. For some reason, I don’t trust technology underwater. I’m excited to take it to the ocean with me. Also, I’ve decided to get a Go Pro! I had fun playing around with it yesterday and planting my tripod under the water with weights.
Swimming laps in the pool with ankle and wrist weights is my favorite for a summer workout. It’s a great break from running.
I made some sweet potato chips to have by the pool! You can find the recipes here! If you make them without any seasoning, they are perfect dog treats! I made mine with a little sea salt, and caught Grumples trying to sneak a few!
Grumples was also happy for a cooler day. He’s only been allowed to go outside for minutes at a time.
I was super tired from the weekend, and decided to make dinner early. I knew I’d be falling asleep before ten. I made a basil grilled chicken pasta with the fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden.
I grilled the chicken with lemon pepper seasoning and olive oil.
The bow tie pasta was tossed in olive oil, peas, tomatoes, black pepper, garlic powder, sea salt, olive oil, onion powder, and fresh basil.
It was delicious! It’s even better cold the next day!
