Ever wake up and your coffee makes you feel on top of the world? Welcome to this Saturday morning. My coffee hit the spot for the first time this week (may also have coincided with a good long sleep last night) and I feel ready for anything. I'm focused and wanting to make plans. Just not ready enough to shower and get dressed ha.
I have some plans for the weekend but nothing concrete. I got a new book in the mail, Double Up, by Gretchen Archer and I really just want to bury myself under the covers in my bedroom and read and laugh hysterically all day. However, I think I have to parent.
We need to find evidence of art in the community so since it is going to be a whopping 40 degrees today I think we are going to our local public gardens to find some art. I also need to fold some laundry and I feel inspired to do a workout, but I feel like this is rushing things just a tad. May be a little to ambitious for my usual weekend plans.
However, this ready to go feeling may come from it being the first Saturday in weeks that I feel 100 percent. And I'm not actually 100 percent because I still can't fully breathe through my nose, however I did not wake up with a sinus headache and it's a major win here.
I'm trying to do a little meal planning today as well because we need quick and easy during the week. I'm trying to add more and more healthier options into our eating without alienating the natives. I sautéed kale this week and it was actually a win so I want to recreate that again. Our problem is my least healthiest eater is the cook. So that is a problem ha. I get home from work 30 to 40 minutes after them so it just makes sense for them to start dinner. So it has to be chef approved to even attempt. I did make a huge batch of chili last weekend and we froze some and the chef made some pulled pork that we froze so those are options. We finished all of the creamy tomato soup that we made with our garden tomatoes last summer, so that's sad.
Basically, I need to find something that doesn't sound healthy and doesn't contain 'weird' items. Weird items would include quinoa and anything whole wheat hahaha.
Have I mentioned how much I love coffee? I am mid-way through my second cup and it's just amazing today. I had one cup with creamer and this is just black and let me just tell you it is love. Coffee is love. And so is no sinus pressure. That is for the birds.
Switching topics I have a book problem. I am partway through The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diament and I need to start Wilde Lake for a review and then Double Up is staring at me just wanting to be read. SO MNNY BOOKS. So very little time. I just probably stop rambling to read, however I just felt that I've neglected this place so much that when I had a brain dump in my head I should utilize the motivation to place it here.
