Since Ryan has every other Friday off work, he joined me on my morning trek with the pup!
I was nice to have someone to talk to other than Sadie who typically just looks up at me with a look that says, “Could ya walk a little faster? The squirrels are getting away!”
All around the lake we walked Sadie around this morning, there are many different birds, including ducks, anhingas and even swans.
These birds are brave. As a puppy Sadie learned not to mess with them. They’re very comfortable around people (almost too comfortable) because people come out to the lake daily to feed them.
Even the squirrels are brave little soldiers. They will literally take a peanut right out of your hand… Not that I would ever try that myself.
I love it when baby birds start hatching around the lake and there are little ducklings, cygnets (That’s the name for a baby swan… Yeah, I Googled it) and goslings tottering around. They’re adorable and are definitely not ugly ducklings!
(Just FYI, the name for a male swan is a “cob” and a female swan is a “pen.” Stop by Peanut Butter Fingers… You just might learn something! 😉 )
After our chilly walk, I was ready for breakfast!
Last night after dinner, I made another batch of chocolate protein pancakes so I could reheat them and have breakfast in a flash this morning.
I topped the ‘cakes with frozen raspberries that I heated up briefly in the microwave before adding some syrup on top of everything.
The raspberry/chocolate combination was delish.
I’m excited for lunch today because I have a lunch date planned with Ryan! Yay for day dates! 🙂
Do you eat lunch at work/home or do you go out for lunch most days?
