My cold is all runny nose etc. this morning 😥 Hopefully it’s on its last day…
I did manage 9 hours of sleep last night, so that was nice! I told myself when I left Hillsborough that I would leave unpacking for the morning because I am one of those nutty people who has to unpack everything the moment I walk in the door before I can relax. Well, as it turns out the husband and I did end up unpacking most everything last night, so it was nice to walk up to a put-together house (sans one big box of Christmas presents).
But before I could do anything else, I had to trek to the grocery store for milk! I could have used our shelf-stable soy milk in oats, but what I really wanted was a cup of our new Caribou Reindeer coffee that reader Faith gave us when we visited her on Xmas Eve, so bundle up it was. The walk was actually quite pleasant with the sun shining and all.
Once back I set to work on pumpkin oats!! My, my it’s been a while!
- 1/3 cup oats, 1% milk, water, 1 medium extra ripe banana, pinch salt, tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end
- Pumpkin butter
- Coconut butter
- Barney Butter spoonful
- 1/3 crumbled Honey Graham Z-Bar
You know, it was almost too much!!!! I think I weaned my stomach off of big breakfast. But it sure did taste good 🙂
These are new placemats my mom got me for Christmas from Williams-Sonoma. I absolutely love them!
And two candles – Sonoma themed – the husband got me!
Not sure what’s on today’s agenda. Definitely grocery shopping and a workout. But not sure when or where for either. The husband and I are doing a romantic New Year’s for two. I always want to spend NYE in some place exciting but we always end up dong something more low key. My sister is in New York City! So I’m in charge of planning a date before he gets home from work at 5pm. We shall see where we end up.
