This has been an odd week as I’m sure it has been for you too. Even busier at work preparing those who can work from home to work from home, being short handed, and trying to not let the anxiety get to me or my team. I have stopped going to the gym until this blows over which sucks, but that seems like a good thing to do to socially distance and avoid exposure. Trying to keep working out at home exciting this weekend was a challenge since we got lots of rain and wind. I stepped out for a run this morning when we got a little break in the rain and about a half mile into it, it started down-pouring, then hailing – ouch! I ran home, changed into dry clothes and finished the workout in our home gym.
I ventured out to shop today and stock up on groceries for the week and went to three different stores to get what I needed because of shortages. Grocery Outlet looked like a tornado hit the store and they were out of bananas, bread, tofu, potatoes, cabbage, etc. I went to Raley’s next who had plenty of bananas, potatoes, and cabbage, but picked clean on cleaning supplies. Then to Sprouts who was also completely out of tofu. So strange, but the stores weren’t crowded and everyone seemed nice and not panicked.
Yesterday we did not leave the house and the rainy weather made that easier to relax, catch up on projects, and watch TV. We did get a little sunshine in the afternoon and got the dogs out for a walk where we met new friends.
They were so sweet and eager to come up to the fence to greet us.
Eats this week have been pretty typical, lots of salads, stir fries, and take out from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine.
More stir fries, more salad, and a hearty lentil, quinoa and tomato stew with roasted butternut squash. I have plenty of leftovers ready for easy work lunches this week.
We’ve also been eating out a bit trying to enjoy that before that gets locked down too. Lunch at Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine, vegan pizza with spicy vegan chorizo from Blaze Pizza, and Thai curry coconut tofu from one of our favorite local Thai restaurants.
How are you doing with all the crazy news? Hanging in there I hope, eating healthy, and staying safe. Hopefully the list is a positive way to start the week.
