Hi, guys! Happy MONDAY to you!
We planned to have pancakes for breakfast, so Mal got to work on his amazing, cake-like recipe.
After breakfast, Mal took the trash to the dump while Qman and I did some painting and art projects. Please note the paint on the back of his head – no idea how that happened. Haha!
When Mal returned home, we headed to the farmer’s market at
Southfield Union Point. It was our first time there, and we were pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t huge, but there were a lot of great vendors and live music.
While there, we also discovered a dog park. Woohoo! There was even a spot for small dogs to run around totally separate from big dogs. We’ll definitely take Murphy the next time we go!
There was a playground right next to the farmer’s market, so Qman spent awhile running around and playing before we went home.
Goodies from the farmer’s market: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, potatoes, and green beans.
We also got some Cheddar Pepperoni Cheese Spread and salted caramel kettlecorn. We tried samples of both at the farmer’s market and just had to buy some to take home!
Quinn was exhausted, so we kept things simple and whizzed through lunch, so he could get down for his nap. My lunch was ground chicken with sweet potato ribbons, green beans, and buffalo sauce.
After lunch, Quinn took a nap, so I broke out my laptop to get to work. I was kind of bummed to be working on such a beautiful day, but at least I had an adorable furry friend to keep me company.
A couple of hours later, I snacked on some Seed-tastic Overnight Chia-Flax Pudding, but, this time, I added fresh blueberries and 1/2 scoop of vanilla SFH protein powder, which was definitely the thing to do. It was so darn delicious! I think I finally nailed down the winning combo! 🙂
I spent most of the afternoon sitting on my butt (Murphy, too), so I took him for a 30-minute walk to give us both a little exercise.
Happy hour snacks!
Snacks led into dinner and, before we knew it, it was Qman’s bedtime.
Mal and I stayed up late watching TV, which, hopefully, wasn’t a bad idea. Let’s hope Qman sleeps until his clock lights up!
