Whew. What a day. Or last couple of days. Thank goodness for post scheduling so that I could have the meditation post from yesterday ready to go! I am glad I am not the only one with the meditation-challenged mind. It makes me feel less like something is wrong with me LOL!
I let myself sleep in a little bit this morning to the tune of almost 7 am, which was quite nice. I am not sure if letting myself sleep is the right term as I don’t set an alarm, I just wake up early. So let’s just say I slept a little later for whatever reason today.
I wanted waffles for breakfast, but I also kind of wanted a 1-minute muffin. The solution? Put the 1-minute muffin batter into the waffle iron!
It came out a very pretty shape. Topped with blueberries and coconut butter. I like the texture of this better than the microwave, too.
With John gone, it has been busy around here. I had to watch over his business and do my own work. Luckily or not, I got accidentally erased from the system at my job in the late afternoon yesterday so I couldn’t log in to do more work last night. That was fun to try to get straightened out today, let me tell you. It was a multi-hour process. Which has now put me behind for the week. calmblueoceancalmblueoceancalmblueocean
At least my eating has been good these last couple of days.
I set up some beef broth yesterday, where I had soup bones from the smokehouse and put them in a pot with water, onions, carrots, and celery and let it simmer for a couple hours. I ended up with some tasty beef broth.
For lunch, I heated up the broth and added some of the meat back in and stirred in a tablespoon of cream for body.
It was good! Broth isn’t really that hard to make and mine is super low sodium.
On a side note – The weather is getting a little warmer now, but could we please get a little more sunshine? Or how about any sunshine? We had hopes to ride to bagels tomorrow, but the overnight low is supposed to dip back into the 20s. Le sigh…
I stopped for a latte break.
I look kind of guilty. What is up with that?
I can be very scatterbrained when John is gone sometimes. I had actually left my keys in the front door lock from Sunday night after I got back from my sister’s until Monday afternoon when my mother saw them dangling from the lock when she came over! 😯 The dumb thing is that I went out that door again to get the mail on Monday and still didn’t seem them hanging there.
Here I slept all sound and happy not knowing that. Best part of today was John arriving back around 4:30! I was so happy to see the car pull into the driveway. Our little family unit is complete again and maybe my brain will unfrazzle.
I had a hankering for sweet potato for dinner, so I had popped one in the toaster oven to bake up. I find the sweet potato to be much sweeter baked than microwaved, does anyone else?
I topped the potato with Laughing Cow and some cooked chicken with a side of sauteed broccoli. I then proceeded to mash it all together to eat
John bought me a treat, which he said were very good.
Coconut macaroons covered in dark chocolate.
He was right. They are good.
Question: Have you ever left your keys in the door lock?
