Hi gang! Wow but it has been a Monday for sure. I’m currently counting down the hours till I can crawl in bed with my heating blanket and a mug of tea.
Stress reliever tea. ‘Nuff said.
Last night Scott and I watched an old movie (Heather it was White Zombie with Bela Lugosi!) while snacking.
Heck yes I had two chocolate zucchini muffins! We didn’t finish the movie though because I was passing out tired. I hit the hay where I proceeded to have a fitful sleep. Too hot then too cold then too hot. Ugh!
I got up around 8am which was about two hours too late it seems today. I’ve been racing the clock ever since! I had a leisurely breakfast.
- 2% Fage
- Red Delicious
- Homemade granola
With a mug of coffee. I read and checked a few blogs and then I got started on my day. First things first, I started a load of laundry. Then I took Rocky out for his walk. It was a glorious day today! The sun was out and the sky was clear and the air was just slightly cool. Amazing!
When I got back I started getting things in order. I had a lot on my plate today and sadly not everything got taken care of. Boo! However I did manage to get all my SF items (we help our instructor out with school tasks) taken care of so that is something! And that to-do list is clear at least for today!
Then I briefly talked with Robin from The Dispatch (local paper) about my KitchenAid stand mixer. :p Perhaps I’ll be published?
After that I got busy with lunch which was quick and easy today!
Fresh pineapple that I could not stop munching on.
- .5C Carrot juice
- .5C Pom
- 1C US cranberry juice
- 1C Water
- Frozen banana
- Frozen peaches
- Scrambled white eggs with chili garlic hot sauce (I’m looking at you Lawgirl! )
- Carrot and cucumber
- Piece of multigrain flax bread
There are some slices of colby jack cheese on the plate but I ended up not eating those.
After lunch was cleaning up the huge mess in the kitchen because Scott convinced me to not do dishes last night. I totally regretted that decision! Thanks to Scott though because he did help me out by drying.
After that I was wrapping up my SF to-do items and dealing with work issues. That’s where the “meh” comes in.
Eventually it was time for dinner. Scott was having leftovers and that meant I was getting some Hugh Jass!
My Hugh Jass contained:
- Mixed greens (chard didn’t look so good this week)
- Chopped beets and carrot from yesterday’s dinner
- Red onion
- Banana peppers
Sprinkled with Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and ground pepper. Topped with balsamic and oil.
Some garlic hummus and crackers on the side.
MMM MMM! I love me some Hugh Jass time!
And now guys, I’m off to read for a few minutes to try and decompress and relax before SF class. Yes that’s right, I need to chill it before I go hit people with sticks. Till tomorrow!
