Today has been a day of two extremes: an extremely busy morning and early afternoon, followed by a relaxing, late afternoon spent poolside.
Having been so “on-the-go” lately, it felt so nice to be able to spend the latter part of today just relaxing at home. As soon as we got back from taking care of what needed to be done, we gathered our things and headed out to the pool.
Do you like our matching sunglasses? Pretty hot, right? Well, don’t knock ‘em too much…if you stay tuned tomorrow, I’ll explain the fashion statement a little more, along with some more info that you’re really, REALLY not gonna want to miss.
Annnnyways, it was a HOT one today! So most of my time was spent IN the pool, rather than in my usual lounge chair. I even had another little friend in there with me today…
Anyone remember when Jay and I got this for Christmas this past year? Today was our first opportunity to take it out and put it to use and I will say, it’s pretty awesome having a floating cooler with you in the pool. In case you’re interested, it’s on Amazon (just click here).
Once we had enough of the pool and sun, we headed back inside to our 89 degree house.
Don’t worry, we turned the AC on after that.
I suddenly ended up getting a surge of energy, so I headed downstairs, completed this treadmill workout, came back up, showered, and put together some dinner.
But since it was still pretty warm in the house at this point, we decided to move things in front of the big fan for a special little “picnic” dinner.
And because it was a special picnic dinner, I thought it was only fitting to pour a couple special glasses of wine to go with it.
Makes it more romantic, right?
As for tonight’s dinner…let’s talk about easy peasy.
I heated up two Italian-style chicken sausages in one pan while cooking up a package of store-bought Spanish rice in another pot. Once the sausages were finished, I sautéed up three huge handfuls of spinach in the same pan.
Once the spinach was wilted, I added in that, the sliced chicken sausages, and one diced tomato in with the rice…BAM! An easy, delicious meal in less than 15 minutes.
I’ll “CHEERS” to that!
Jay and I are now planning on spending the rest of the evening just hanging out with our
shedding favorite fur ball.
Like I said before, be sure to check back in tomorrow morning. I’ve got some goodies up my sleeve that I’m pretty positive you’re gonna want to get yours hands on!
Question for the Evening:
What’s your favorite poolside beverage?
For me, non-alcoholic = water / alcoholic = sangria!
