The home improvement projects never end when you’re a homeowner. Poor Mal worked for hours trying to install a new faucet in our kitchen sink this afternoon.
Unfortunately, Mal had quite a bit of trouble installing it. Actually, he struggled with UNinstalling the old faucet. He even had to run out to Lowe’s to buy a Telescopic Basin Wrench to get into the tight space behind the garbage disposal to remove the nut from the old faucet. It was a hacksaw blade that finally did the trick! Once the old faucet was out, it was a piece of cake to put in the new one. Thank goodness!
Through all of this, the pug, of course, wasn’t far from the action.
Murphy slowly crept in for a closer look at the project at hand.
Apparently, this position gave him the best view.
Then, the pug tried to make himself comfortable.
Eventually, he made it work.
Weirdest dog ever.
To refuel after this morning’s run, I ate an egg white and cheddar cheese sandwich on a toasted English muffin and drank a protein shake made with Vanilla Whey Superior Charge, iced coffee, and soy milk.
As you know, I’m trying to increase my protein intake, so I’m going to incorporate whey protein into my diet. One scoop (31.8 g) has 21 grams of protein! Plus, it’s easy to mix into things that I already eat and drink, like iced coffee, oatmeal, and smoothies. I especially like this one because it’s really vanilla-y!
After running errands all afternoon, I came home and snacked on a few Crispy Tenderswith barbeque sauce.
And an apple with a scoop of peanut butter.
For dinner, Mal and I are making homemade pizza and drinking beer. Watching a movie and building a fire is also on the agenda for the evening. Sounds like the perfect Saturday night to me!
Off to pig out!
