Hey guys! How are y’all? Thanks so much for all of your awesome suggestions on what you do/take for sore throats! I’m feeling much better today, but still sound horrible. Plus when I cough it makes my head hurt. Is that weird?
Yesterday’s breakfast was some hot quinoa cereal (1/3 cup each of quinoa/milk/water, a dash of cinnamon, and some vanilla, cooked over medium heat for 15 minutes) with a little granola and roasted maple cinnamon almond butter:
It took all of my energy to make it, but the good news is it tasted amazing! All I did yesterday was lay in bed and sleep, with the exception of the 30 minutes I tried to watch a movie. I got up around 7pm feeling much more rested and made some Sicilian Split Pea Soup for dinner:
I love this brand! Has anyone else tried Alessi products before? I highly recommend them…you can find them at Walmart, they’re inexpensive, the ingredient list is good, and they are always super flavorful! We stayed up and watched Modern Family and Law & Order, then I hit the sack again. I think I was only awake for about 3 hours 🙂
This morning I got up and felt much better, so I thought I’d go in to work. We’re slow this time of year, so I was thinking it would be something I could handle. I made a chocolate + peanut butter GM:
This time rather than using ice cubes I used a small frozen banana, and it was the perfect consistency and didn’t have a lot of added bulk to it. I’m thinking I should start using frozen bananas more often! It felt amazing on my throat too 🙂
I went in to work and then was told that it would probably be best if I went home. I just sound horrible and still don’t feel 100%, so I’m answering emails and working from home today. Plus probably sleeping some more because as it turns out, my getting ready for work routine actually wore me out. Definitely a good idea to stay home again! It’s also supposed to rain all day, which I am really excited about: it means I won’t have to water our yard, and I just love rainy days anyway 🙂 OH! And don’t forget to weigh in on tomorrow’s Marriage Ref Friday!!!
What’s your favorite kind of weather? I love sunny, warm days, but I’m ALWAYS up for some rain! It’s beautiful, peaceful, and, well, kinda sexy 🙂
