Summary Of A Happy Day ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒป

Today was a wonderful day. We had our early Valentine’s Day tea (coming in a different post) I went on a fun long bike ride, and got a long-awaited package in the mail.

As if that weren’t enough, Christopher surprised me by purchasing the espresso machine that I wanted. I only really got into having hot espresso in like, the last week… so him buying it completely threw me for a loop. He showed me the order on his phone while we were having tea and it made me cry, I was so surprised. It’ll be here Monday.

It’s a beautiful red so it will match my kitchen redecor:

There was a time when I did this at a restaurant I worked at. I wasn’t bad at it, so we’ll see if I can learn again. I’m so excited!

โœจ New Rainbow Keycapsโœจ

It took over a month, but my rainbow keycaps from AliExpress are here! Like my keyboard’s original keycaps, these are also clear (the letters, symbols and numbers, I mean) so the RGB effect still shows through beautifully:

I’m over the moon with it, as you can imagine! It fits my overall aesthetic very well.

๐Ÿฅ• A Ride With Slinky ๐Ÿฅ•

I was anxious to burn as many calories as possible after our high tea. I took a different route today, because it gets a little boring otherwise. I rode toward Tree Tops Park.

I decided to bring Slinky in my basket. Though she seems conspicuous in the photos, she was well hidden most of the time other than the lid of her hat. But I could see her, and it made me really happy. I’ve always wanted to take a stuffed animal in my basket.

I came across a little park on the way, with a huge lake in the middle and one path going all around:

There were several ducks and other birds present:

I even got a little video of the guy above:

I found a cow in a field. If it had wanted to come up to me, I would have been able to touch it.

It looked back at me with interest three or four times; I could see the white of its eyes. But it was too preoccupied with eating to engage with me.

I also came across this… thing, painted with a golf and tennis theme. It’s some electrical thing, or something of the sort, but it was so cool, I had to take a picture:

Finally, I was at Tree Tops Park. I didn’t go in, I just went straight on because it was such a nice path.

Maybe a half mile after this sign, a little more perhaps, I turned around because sunset was fast approaching. I had over an hour ride home against strong wind, and sunset was in 15 more minutes. The roads weren’t super well lit, so I panicked a little bit. I was quite far from home to be on my bike.

Night had just fallen properly when I made it back to familiar territory.

When I went through the door my legs were shaking from the effort, but I rode a total of over 12 and a half miles. I’m proud of myself. ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐ŸฅŸ Ham & Cheese Empanadas ๐ŸฅŸ

Pretty much as soon as I walked in I began to work on dinner. I made ham and cheese empanadas for the first time.

They turned out alright –I need to use a different cheese next time.

That’s all, I suppose, but there will be a separate post for fun tea photos!

Got Pokรฉmon Sword!

My mood hasnโ€™t been great for a few days now. I tried and tried to do things to cheer myself up and it wasnโ€™t working… today Christopher let me get the new Pokรฉmon game and Iโ€™m finally sitting playing it and feeling happy for the first time in days. It really isnโ€™t as much about the game as it is about how much he cares about me. I really love him a lot.

Weโ€™re ready to play!! ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽฎ

An Outing With Slinky! ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ•

Remember my cutie Slinky? Her paci is secured now. She looks so cute with it!

Iโ€™m going out with a friend today. Iโ€™m bringing her along for the ride!

We met some cool pups at the mall! Looking slick.

Later, we went to a really nice French cafe called Le Bouchon. I had a smoked salmon sandwich. It was so good, I hope we get to go again!

Right outside the cafe there was a beautiful merry-go-round!

Slinky stopped to smell the flowers ๐ŸŒน

We had a lot of fun and even scored some goodies at Build-A-Bear!
