So it's Monday and that usually means suckage but today turned out to be pretty awesome.  I slept in, woke up and had coffee and talked with our friend and contractor while he was painting.  I then became privy to the opening of our bathroom paint (pictured above in the background).  I am so in love with the color!!! I was feeling shades of blue in anticipation of the unveiling so I dressed in it to celebrate.  This was purchased in the pajama section of Conway and therefore cost me a whopping $3.99. Splendid.  I got this cardigan on clearance at Target.  I'm in love with these colors.  After the paint happy I headed out to work and then to the gym followed by the grocery store for grilling items. I came home and unpacked and cleaned out the horridly full and partially rotting fridge.  Michael came home and we headed to Lowes and Home Depot for sink an toilet purchasing.  We were successful and purchased a "sterling" toilet by Kohler and "archer" sink by Kohler, names we found hilarious since we love the show Archer and the main character's name is Sterling Archer.  It was meant to be.   We came home and I grilled seitan, asparagus and zucchini and served it with a homemade truffled potato salad- so good! I just chopped and boiled potatoes, added hard boiled egg, onion and orange pepper (I was out of celery) then whipped together mayo, mustard, black truffle oil, salt and pepper and tossed the veggies with the dressing.  Mmmmm.  I was so good about my diet today until I stupidly indulged in hazelnut gelato.  I need to keep that shit out of my house, it's heaven in a pint container.  

Oh I almost forgot the good crazy squirrel lady news.   It turns out that I was wrong about the half tail squirrel, thinking he was Maalox.  I saw the real Maalox yesterday with a full tail.  I guess half tail also got an ear tear, which confused me.  I always assumed the half tail squirrel was Maalox because of the tear and that he had become skittish once he was attacked.  Since the real Maalox ran right up to me and hung out with me and did indeed have an ear tear I believe I was incorrect all winter.  Yeah Maalox! Way to totally outlive your city squirrel life expectancy and still look fabulous. I think we're between 3 and 4 years of squirrel friendship.  I like to call him my squirrelfriend. 

Here are some lovely photos of the greens in our bedroom, our turquoise bathroom and my squirrelfriend Maalox:
