A Sunny Disposition

November 25, 2011


We stayed up to midnight watching The Village last night. Even knowing the plot and ending, I was still terrified!! Scariest movie ever.

My body woke up at my usual time in the 6am hour and I had trouble going back to sleep. I have the beginnings of a cold :( But I finally did and I don’t think anyone in our house was out of bed before 9am.


Simple Cville Crunch, banana and sunflower butter toast with Frog Hollow Farm pears on the side. I got my dad [who skips breakfast – the horror!] to try the pear. He agreed it was one of the best he’s had!


New Orleans coffee on the side!


Going to bed late means sleeping late which means we’re late getting a move on on our day’s activities. Larbs and Matt are on their way!! We have fabulous weather for a hike!

We slept in as well today. I am making Great Harvest Pancakes right now too!

Oh yum – enjoy!


3 Katie @ Raisins&Apples November 25, 2011 at 10:59 am

Skipping breakfast seems like a tragedy…except it’s almost 11 and I still haven’t eaten yet!

Mmmm bartlett pears are seasonal and so delicious right now where I live. In enjoying them every morning for breakkinz while I still can! :)

I totally understand…I stayed up way too late last night, and am paying for it today! I’m sure the fresh air and hike will feel good, enjoy the day!


6 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats November 25, 2011 at 11:05 am

A hike sounds like a great post-thanksgiving activity! and I was the same way this morning, awake around 5:30… tried to force myself to lay there until 7 though!


7 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries November 25, 2011 at 11:05 am

Everyone is late moving in our house this morning too! It’s kind of nice to ease into the morning in peace and quiet though. Enjoy your hike!


8 lynn @ the actor's diet November 25, 2011 at 11:18 am

MMMM NOLA COFFEE!!! that’s the start of the holidaze for me, since i’m going for x-mas again this year.

The sun is shining here as well! A sunny disposition… A great way to start the weekend!

That Village totally freaked me out. I hate being scared, even if it’s just a movie!

I wish I could have slept in a little late, but my husband had to get up early and go into work. No fun!


11 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat November 25, 2011 at 11:29 am

I don’t think I could ever skip breakfast – the morning just isn’t the same without it! Enjoy your hike!


12 Cait's Plate November 25, 2011 at 11:29 am

Jealous of your fabulous hike weather! It’s chilly, chilly, chilly here! Glad you got to sleep in!


13 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table November 25, 2011 at 11:39 am

A hike sounds wonderful in this crisp fall weather. Have fun! My sore legs and I will be roaming the (hopefully) deserted grocery store. :)


14 Cara @ EAT. PRAY. RUN. November 25, 2011 at 11:46 am

My mom doesn’t eat breakfast and I just can’t wrap my mind around that either! Enjoy your day ;)


15 Amy @ Chef Basket November 25, 2011 at 12:12 pm

The Village is probably the last of M Night Shalamans good movies. This looks like a lovely breakfast, such nice presentation. As for myself, i can never skip breakfast or i’ll have a bad start to my day.


16 Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco November 25, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Happy Day After Turkey Day and I hope you have a lovely hike. ;)


17 Khushboo November 25, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Love being able to naturally wake up- Sundays are the only day it happens for me! Every other day is dictated by my alarm!


18 Heather @ Run Eat Play November 25, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I love pears – Harry & David’s pears are amazing too. Have a fun hike!


19 Jen November 25, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Kath, you need to try oil of oregano for that cold! I felt a cold coming on a few weeks ago and finally took everyone’s advice and tried oil of oregano. Four drops later, I was good as new! I’m still amazed. My medicine cabinet will not be without this stuff this cold & flu season! It’s not cheap – a teeny little bottle cost me $15, but you really don’t need much, and I figure for what it saved me in lost $$ from missing work, it’s totally worth the cost! Whatever you end up doing, I hope the cold goes away fast!


20 KathEats November 25, 2011 at 1:47 pm

Can I just eat lots of oregano!?


21 sarah November 25, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Herbs are typically made into extracts because they have serious medicinal benefits and active constituents that aren’t going to be available in an amount you could (or would probably want to) consume. My favorite thing for warding off colds is Yin Chiao, a chinese herbal compound. It’s *amazing* stuff- in the decade that I’ve been taking it, I’ve only gotten sick a few times, and one of the times I didn’t take it right away. You only take it if you feel something coming on, and I only have to take a couple tablets twice a day for one or two days. I know you aren’t “into” supplements, but Yin Chiao is a great thing to have around! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt something coming on, and it’s gone within a day, typically. And yeah, oregano oil is some serious stuff!


22 Jen November 25, 2011 at 6:03 pm

You could try, Kath, but it probably won’t work, lol. Oil of O doesn’t taste great, but if you drink a couple of big glasses of water after you take it the taste disappears quickly. It really does work! I’d much rather take it than some pharmaceutical cold pill that’s not going to truly help anyway.

Sarah, this Yin Chiao stuff sounds interesting…I think I need to Google it :) Thanks for the suggestion!

It takes 100lbs of leaves to make 1 lb of oil from steam distillation. It is natural most powerful antibiotic. http://oregapet.com/clinical_research.html

We’ve got glorious weather too and plan to enjoy it playing in the great outdoors – and far from the mall crowds.

Have fun on your hike!


25 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh November 25, 2011 at 1:44 pm

I can know the plot of a movie but if its good enough, it’ll still grab me like its the first time!

That plate is gorgeous!


26 Jen November 25, 2011 at 1:46 pm

I haven’t been sleeping well either and I’m wondering if maybe it is because of the cold I caught. I’m not sick but mostly just sneezing, tired and just feeling out of sorts in my head. Enjoy the hike!


27 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl November 25, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Coffee this time. Good morning for that. The pears look yum! Nice breakfast.


28 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 25, 2011 at 8:16 pm

It was a gorgeous day here too – I wish I had gone on a hike!

Also, I finally found Kodiak Cakes today at Home Sense (a Canadian store like Home Goods) and I can’t wait to try them tomorrow! I’ve been dying to try them after reading about them on your blog so many times. :D


29 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel November 25, 2011 at 10:30 pm

Oh no, feel better! That looks like one heck of a power breakfast so hopefully all that goodness helped your body fight a cold!


30 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count November 26, 2011 at 10:04 am

Looks like a yummy breakfast and simple to prepare which I like~


31 ~Christy @ wonderofallthings November 26, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Skips breakfast? Hasn’t your dad learned anything from your blog ;)
