This is Wednesday, February 25, 2015!
A more average day off for me. Lots of chores, photo editing, and hiding from the sun during this random February heatwave. Also seeing Gabby’s new apartment and picking up a visiting German friend from the airport.

Enjoy!

_MG_0001
It’s my day off, I can sleep in till 9 if I wanna!

_MG_0007
My hair is in a weird in-between long/short state so it gets really tangled and crazy if I keep it in a bun overnight AND if I keep it down. No winnnn!

_MG_0010
Keep basil alive

_MG_0017
_MG_0019
Wash up some of the dishes from the day before, and throw in a blanket that was smelling a bit too much like the dogs.

_MG_0025
_MG_0023
Fueling

_MG_0026
Sunniest place in the house goes to the plant

_MG_0030
_MG_0036
Back to bed to play some Animal Crossing (not sure why I’m not totally bored with this yet) and some Trivia Crack

_MG_0044
_MG_0038
_MG_0039
Laying around in the dark room with only natural light trickling in while chilling in the morning is really one of my favorite things.

_MG_0048
Sufi is like a cat. He loves looking out the window at the passing dogs (and usually is actually staring at nothing)

_MG_0058
WHAT are you looking at.

_MG_0074
Tweedy becoming more typical shih tzu. He really needs a haircut.

_MG_0078
_MG_0082
I saw the magic word and they start flapping their wings. “WALK!” (but in a super annoying high pitched voice). Works like a charm.

_MG_0086
Lesss gooo

_MG_0099
_MG_0100
Ghoul tree face

_MG_0109
Little flowers blooming on the neighborhood trees

_MG_0121
Post-walk sun soaking.

_MG_0125
A little breakfast

_MG_0131
And a little hydration

_MG_0133
Something tells me you want to come inside, Tweedy.

_MG_0137
_MG_0140
Slip into my running gear

_MG_0143
And 2.5 miles later! I’m back. And much sweatier.

_MG_0148
I keep reminding myself not to run in the afternoon (but rather in the morning or evening) because it gets too hot. But. I have to run when I feel the motivation and sometimes the timing doesn’t work out.

_MG_0160
Shower time for me and Tweedy

_MG_0170
Heheheh

_MG_0167
_MG_0174
So tiny when he’s moist

_MG_0177
He hates being left outside alone. But he needs to dry!

_MG_0178
Okay okay, I’ll come out. But I gotta get dressed.

_MG_0182
_MG_0185
Wearing one of my favorite shirts

_MG_0188
_MG_0198
Outside to brush the pups. This may not look like a dog, but this second picture is indeed Tweedy’s head smushed into the pillows.

_MG_0202
Nice.

_MG_0203
So later today my friend who is currently in the States visiting from Germany will be returning from her mini-trip up to the Pacific Northwest to stay with me.

_MG_0213
_MG_0209
Do a bit of cleaning and get her room set up.

_MG_0214
Still haven’t made my MRE yet! This isn’t an official one and is missing the flameless ration heater, which I’m a little bummed about. But.

_MG_0219
There’s Tweedy, still yearning to be inside

_MG_0221
And Sufi, hiding between the cement blocks.

_MG_0235
_MG_0237
Aight pups, get on inside.

_MG_0241
I clear out the fridge and clean out old tupperwares of leftovers.

_MG_0252
_MG_0263
I get my grocery bag and head off to the market

_MG_0276
_MG_0277
Neighborhood is quiet. Nobody wants to be outside, it’s too hot to be February.

_MG_0279
_MG_0280
Square buildings make for geometric shadows

_MG_0282
_MG_0288
Grabbing new detergent. It’s always when I decide to walk and bring 1 bag that I remember I need things that are very heavy.

_MG_0289
_MG_0290
Some eggs, some chili seasoning mix.

_MG_0293
And of course a bunch of cans…

_MG_0297
Eager to get inside, it’s just too hot.

_MG_0305
Ditch the sunglasses and head to the kitchen.

_MG_0308
Hey Sufi, can you help me put this shit away

_MG_0309
1 PM!

_MG_0317
My dumb onion holder that I love.

_MG_0318
Browning some turkey

_MG_0321
_MG_0323
Adding in seasonings and onions and then toss that into my slow cooker. Going to let that hang out!

_MG_0333
Do the dishes like a good girl

_MG_0335
_MG_0338
Had some leftover turkey because my slow cooker is so tiny, so I decided to make some turkey patties.

_MG_0342
_MG_0349
_MG_0351
I’ve never made a turkey patty like this, but it was pretty good! Put some garlic salt, cayenne, pepper and mixed it into the ground turkey. Made into little discs and cooked on the stove!

_MG_0352
Followed up some with arare.

_MG_0355
Sat down to go through some photos on my hard drive

_MG_0361
Whilst watching The Mindy Project – I’m about halfway through season 2 now.

_MG_0369
Bothering Tweedy

_MG_0373
_MG_0374
Got a post up on LJ and then started catching up with travel photos. Soon I’ll be posting Granada and Sevilla!

_MG_0378
Iced coffee cool down power up

_MG_0388
_MG_0387
Migrated over to the workroom to work on Zach’s silly website interstitials

_MG_0390
Sun is going down already!

_MG_0391
_MG_0392
_MG_0395
Yeeeeeah. So, it’s kind of coming together? I must say, I thought squarespace would be much easier to use. It’s not very intuitive.

_MG_0401
Tired from looking at a screen for so long.

_MG_0403
But baby Sufi came to sit with me!

_MG_0405
Adding in these “working on it” graphics…yeah, he’s a nerd.

_MG_0418
Speaking of the nerd. He’s here to cook some eggs. Be useful! (And he works in a furniture studio/fabrication shop, hence his always dirty shirts)

_MG_0419
_MG_0428
Zach works on the eggs, I worked on the chili. Fair-ish?

_MG_0430
Fried egg with spicy turkey chili and a splash of Frank’s hot sauce!

_MG_0435
_MG_0438
Tweedy is into it

_MG_0440
I put some pants on and pack up a little doggy bag for Gabby. I’m heading to pick up Hanna from the airport, and then we’re going to check out Gabby’s new place.

_MG_0449
_MG_0453
So busy! Who knew that Wednesday eve was the day to arrive in LA.

_MG_0457
She’s here! Throwing her stuff into the car. Let’s roll…

_MG_0461
As we’re on our way to Gabby’s she calls and asks if we can grab some beer. Sure thing.

_MG_0465
_MG_0472
So different from my own Ralph’s. They should be more uniform with the store arrangements, I get so lost!

_MG_0474
Wow found our way to Paris in the checkout line.

_MG_0490
_MG_0486
Made it to see Gabby’s new pad! It’s right on a gorgeous marina.

_MG_0493
_MG_0495
We get the full tour, and settle in to catch up and watch some TV.

_MG_0496
_MG_0501
We hear some noises and look up. OH HELLO!

_MG_0504
Lil’ pup on the stairs. Looks like a second cousin of Tweedy or something.

_MG_0505
I brought Gabby some of my chili, but she had already ordered us room! So kind.

_MG_0508
Pizza and an assortment of appetizers.

_MG_0514
_MG_0515
I already ate, so I mostly sat back, snacked on the garlic knots and enjoyed the FINALE of Masterchef Junior!

_MG_0519
Girl talks

_MG_0522
Around 10pm we headed home.

_MG_0524
Pups happy to see Hanna again!

_MG_0529
_MG_0540
Getting settled back in

_MG_0549
And watching some more Broad City before bed. I’m obsessed.

_MG_0557
_MG_0560
_MG_0561
Put the jammies back on to do the jammie dance

_MG_0566
And magically it was already midnight! O___o

Goodnight world.

Much love friends.

Check back soon for travel updates! 🙂
