Wow, I cannot believe it's already July.  It's almost football season and the year is more than half way over, crazy. A lot has happened in this past year and I'm so thankful Patrick isn't deploying this year. We had a pretty awesome weekend despite the ungodly humid weather. Saturday we went out on Johnny's boat to dive, there were nine of us. We saw some dolphins and a huge sea turtle along with hundreds of Spadefish and Red Snapper. Thankfully there were no sharks this time because spearfishing with bull sharks makes for a hell of an adrenaline rush. The coolest part about spear fishing and while you're SCUBA diving is the fact that the farther down you go, the more colors disappear. Well, red is the first color to go and when you spear the fish they bleed green. Probably the most eventful part of the day was when we had the cops called on us! Apparently someone called the Coast Guard and told them we were spearing Grouper, which we definitely were not.  The cops showed up on the boat, made every single one of us pick up tanks, open all the containers and the live well so they could check for the "sacred" fish, lo and behold - no grouper. Had we actually had the fish, it would have been delicious and would have made some awesome fish tacos.

That night, sun-kissed and exhausted, we vegged out on the couch and watched the Olympic trials. I asked Patrick if he could do any Olympic sport what would he do, he said sprinting. Mine would be beach volleyball or butterfly. 

Sunday I made garlic-turmeric hummus, banana peanut butter muffins and rosemary chicken with roasted asparagus. Right now I'm drinking coffee, which is actually from one of the coffee shops Patrick and I frequent in Santa Rosa - and looking at the blue bird outside that's trying to harass the little finches eating out of the feeder. Patrick took leave the next few days so we're pretty happy about that! I'm thinking egg white veggie omelets with feta, berries and french bread toast for breakfast today. Yep. Sounds like a good day already.


I make perfect beach hair.
