Today was a pretty spontaneous day, but that’s how summer can be! I woke up at 7 because I wanted to run in the morning before breakfast, just to get it over with.
Post-run oatmeal was quite delicious. Strawberries and cream:
After breakfast, I picked up my brother from school. I let him drive home part of the way (he just turned 16) and then we decided to do something crazy: Go take his driver’s license test! After a lot of coordinating, we headed out to the testing site.
He drove the whole way there and did really well, but unfortunately he didn’t pass. The good news is most of the stuff he missed is really easy to fix, so I’m sure he’ll pass next time. Plus, there seems to be a bias against teenage boys who take the test (many of his friends did not pass on their first try either).
I brought my lunch with me because I wasn’t hungry when we left:
This afternoon I didn’t do much, and soon enough it was time for dinner! I made a rice-and-beans bowl with lots of toppings!
All of this was going to become a burrito, but I ended up snacking on a tortilla before dinner instead.
Tonight there’s another late Cardinals game I probably won’t make it through, and I’ll probably find myself a little something sweet to eat. Maybe cookies? Maybe a banana smoothie? Many possibilities…
