Happy weekend! It’ cloudy and cool here, but I’m not really minding it. Yesterday was FULL to the brim, so it’s a nice excuse to lay low today.

I started early with a small breakfast…

Watermelon, trail mix, coffee


Almonds, walnuts, coconut, dried cranberries

Then I took Punky for a nice long walk, then went to another breakfast with a friend around 9 o’clock.

This is my friend Tracy who had brain surgery last year – now she’s living life and thriving out in Connecticut – so I hardly every get to see her! We’ve known each other since elementary school, so it was so nice to just sit and chat. She’s lovely.

I had another little breakfast of fruit and potatoes (which I dipped in ketchup and ate with my fingers like French fries).

After that it was off to yoga, then home to mow the lawn, eat lunch

Taco salad – broccoli slaw, salsa, hummus, chips, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast

…and then I had to rush to get ready for my friend Emily’s wedding!! It was a gorgeous ceremony –everything went beautifully. I got to see people I hadn’t seen in a while, and overall it was a fantastic night.

My friend Dawn who is in the Air Force – she’s such a stud.

I might as well call these girls my sisters since we’ve been friends since FIRST GRADE – lifelong love.

Dinner was delicious. I ordered the veggie option.

Spinach stuffed portobello mushroom, potatoes (so good!!) and asparagus

I also had cake…duh.

Actually I just licked the frosting off of two cupcakes. Yum. We danced, and danced, then made the two hour drive home.

At around midnight, we walked in the door and found our cat Bellatrix dead on the kitchen floor. Morbid, I know – but there’s no other way to say it. Describing the experience as traumatic doesn’t really cover it. We have no idea what happened to her…

I captured many of Bella’s daily moments on the blog – but I thought it would be nice to give my sweet kitty a little blog eulogy. A montage of Bellatrix moments.

She’s the one with light brown spots, and the smaller of the two cats…




Meeker and I (and the other animals!!) will miss our little snuggler so much!
