I was at the pool, yesterday with my kids.   It was a fabulous day, water was the perfect temperature, and the pool wasn’t too crowded.  We were able to ride the waterslide with minimal wait.  Same goes for the diving board.  I don’t do the diving board that often  anymore.

I tried to tell my kids how much I USED to really love jumping off the diving board.  I USED to do flips and cartwheels into the pool.  Now I just do a petite little jump and get on with it.   My son naturally asked why I don’t do these things anymore.  My answer was  I became an adult. Now I know the saying that we are only as old as we feel.  Whatever. The fact is I’m 40. And there are just certain things that change with age.  Here is list of things that have changed for me

1.  I do not get that excited over crazy straws.

2.  I don’t have to be the one to push the elevator button.

3.  I share.

4.  Swings give me vertigo.

5.  Amusement park rides make me want to vomit.

6.  I look forward to going to sleep.

7.  In conjunction with number 6, I can admit when I’m tired.

8. I enjoy sitting down to eat.

9.  All things related to coffee make me happy.

10. I can drink beer, not just root beer.

Now there are some ways that I am still very childish.  I get so excited when my birthday, I am all about the frosting and less about the cake, potty humor gets me every time!

I made this BLT salmon thinking it was a very adult meal. My kids asked for seconds, spinach and all!!  I was so  pleased with them and with this tasty meal.  It’s easy and so good for you (minus the bacon of course). You know at my age it’s all about omega-3’s!!!  Ha, I should just eat happily in moderation then do cannonballs off the diving board!

  1. Love the list. I’m there with you sister!

    I love your creations (I want to come over for dinner every night, but that might be too much). This salad looks so yummy and easy. Thanks for sharing.

    • Being the queen, you would be allowed to sit at the head of the table!!

  2. This is such a great Summertime dish. Quick, easy to prepare, and certainly lighter fare than most meals. And just look at it. That is one appetizing salad!

    • Thanks John, I was very happy with this dish.

  3. My husband would love this! He loves salmon and the spinach puts it over the top. Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Have a blessed week & come back soon.

    • Thank you! The spinach was a nice topping!

  4. This looks really yummy! We will have to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

    • I hope you do try it out! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. You are definitely my kind of girl!! Love the list!!! I am exhausted right now, but there are too many great recipes like this one to get caught up on!! Thank you for linking to Foodtastic Friday! Please don’t forget to come back this week. Salmon and bacon makes me happy. :)

  6. We have responsibilities now that we didn’t have when we were younger! What if I do that cannonball into the water and injure myself, who will get the kids home? As children we never have to think about things like that :) I’m going with the theory, that if I use un-cured/nitrate free bacon…..I can still eat it!

    • Could you eat pancetta instead?? Thanks for understanding Lisa!

  7. This is such a fun post and, as always, it looks delicious!! {and I am not sure which thing is my favorite but I laughed really hard at #2!! } Pinning!! xoxo

  8. Hi Tanya, I ´m posting your salmon salad on my FB page Challenging Arts & Crafts…. such a scrumptious looking salad…thanks for sharing!

  9. […] it’s not light, but it sure is tasty!  What can I say, I love bacon!  I sprinkle bacon on salmon and chicken, heck I even put in […]

  11. […] Fish tacos are one of my favorite summertime meals!  They are the perfect light dinner! These tacos are made with spicy salmon and are topped with a jalapeno cream! My family and I recently spent the week at the beach in North Carolina.  It was wonderful, with the exception of the bright red, oddly shaped sunburn I acquired on our first day.  I love the beach.  I never tire of listening to the calming rhythms of the waves rolling onto shore.  Such a relaxing sound.  Of course, when you travel to the beach with your children, you don’t actually get to relax.    I suppose that’s what retirement is for, right? We spent the entire first day at the beach (hence the oddly shaped sunburn).  We dug in the sand and plunged our bodies into the chilly Atlantic Ocean.  Our 4 year old, Lucy, was a little timid when it came to the water.  She wanted me to hold her hand and help her jump the waves.  At first we stood rather far away from the water.  It was close enough for the foamy water to caress our feet, and the sand to wash out from underneath us, but that was it. Gradually, Lucy became braver and together, we slipped a little further into the ocean.  With each incoming wave, Lucy would point her finger and shout “oooh a big one”.  When the wave was upon us she would grab both my hands and I’d lift her over the swirling water.  As the water receded, Lucy would let go of my hands, splash around and excitedly marvel at her surroundings.  Then the cycle would repeat.   As the afternoon wore on however, I noticed that Lucy wouldn’t reach for my hands as often.  She found the courage to jump over most of the waves herself.  Every once in a while,  Lucy would see an intimidating wave and rush to grab my hands.  But as Lucy’s confidence grew,  the time between those hand gripping moments stretched farther and farther apart. I stood there in the wet sand watching my sweet little curly-haired daughter jumping excitedly over each passing wave.  I was struck by the notion that this is what parent hood is all about.  Our job as parents, is to extend our hands out to all our children as different waves crash into their lives.  Our kids my not always take them, but our outstretched hands will always be there.
