Early Monday morning we were woken up by an intense thunder and lightening storm that’s very rare here this time of year. That storm system caused a lot of lightening fires around the bay area and valley. Thankfully we’re only affected by the smoke and ash, but the air quality has ranged between unhealthy to hazardous with these apocalyptic views. I just feel awful for those affected by the fires.
Sweet Miko has been very frustrated at the lack of walks between the air quality and triple digit heat and I am frustrated about not getting in any runs outside.
Miko had his follow up appointment with his regular vet Friday where the news on his enlarged heart was not better, but he adjusted his medication and gave him a diuretic shot which made the poor guy have to pee insane amounts that night. Hopefully we get better news on his follow up appointment this Friday.
It’s been a strange week, I feel like we’re just hanging in there until the fires and pandemic pass. I spent a lot of time in the office last week with big things going on which was okay, it’s lonelier in the office, but peaceful and productive. Currently I work part time remotely and go into the office as needed.
I’ve been turning to a lot of comfort foods this week. There have been the usual tofu stir fries and salads. But also eggplant tofu takeout from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine and a hearty and comforting marinara dish using chickpea fettuccine.
More tofu stir fries, salad, and a comforting black bean pasta with basil and olive pasta sauce and spinach.
Also vegan pizza and kicky Thai cashew tofu takeout.
And now just fighting the Sunday blues hoping the fires clear up, for more outdoor time, and a good work week. And that you have a great week too starting with this list.
