When it rains, it pours.

In my life, when It rains, it pours. The month of February has been a whole lot of bad. Everything I needed to work properly was broken or in the process of breaking, my body was falling apart (adult chickenpox and sprained ankles, yay!), the move to our new apartment was traumatic and never-ending, and the money gods decided that we shouldn't have any. March has begun much the same way, minus the moving part. We narrowly averted severely flooding our new apartment and the five floors beneath us (a screw broke in our shower faucet and the tub was filling up faster than It was draining and so we bailed water into our sinks for two hours until the emergency plumbers arrived). After burning some sage and whatever other spiritual stuff we could think of, we're hoping our luck turns a corner. If you have any good luck to spare, please send it my way. Now on to some food.

Lately I'm trying to focus on good things so to start off my day I love a good breakfast. Delicious venison sausage from Montana that we purchased from Whole Foods, fried local organic eggs, and some English muffins with double cream butter. Yum! The sausage was firm with a nice meaty and slightly gamey flavor. They were so good I could've had ten of them. And nothing beats a good fried egg with just a little kosher salt and fresh black pepper (plus a few dashes of Tapatio hot sauce). This is the kind of breakfast that gets me in a good mood at the beginning of the day. Not to say that I'll stay in a good mood but at least it gives my day a chance. Not only that but check out my view as I eat this tasty meal. Here's what I see out my window everyday. Be jealous.

Or This...

I used to not really care about views or anything like that but now that I have one I have to say, it rocks. There's nothing better than having a delicious meal with an amazing view. Now if I can only convince K to give me a foot rub at the same time I would be set. Oh, and I want to win the lottery.
