Last night I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of getting up at 4:50 a.m. during my last few days of time off before summer school starts, but I asked the husband if he wanted to work out together and he said yes. The sacrifices of marriage! But I was glad to do it so we could spend a little time together, and sitting here at 8:04 a.m. with my workout checked off my to-do list feels GOOD.
I had a piece of focaccia toast with PB before I left. It’s blue tinged because there’s some blue cornmeal in the dough!
Back to bananas for breakfast! Oh how I missed them Since we doubled up on bananas, we cut back the oats to 1/3 cup portions – but with less oats to cook, they didn’t turn out as creamy as usual. I don’t think you get a good creamy batch of outs with less than 1 cup (because the less you have, the quicker you lose liquid and they don’t cook as long to get creamy.)
But they were still delicious with some trail mix, flax and almond butter!
With my favorite coffee!
I am also thrilled to be posting again from my home computer which is fast and sleek. WordPress does NOT do well with Internet Explorer – the photos don’t keep their shape when I resize and there’s weird things that happen with inserting the photos and I lose my automatic spell check! I know I make typos almost every day, but I’m sure there are twice as many on my vacations when I don’t have Firefox. It took me 2-3 times as long to type posts from my parents and grandparents’ computers. So I LOVE Firefox!! If it’s not your default browser, check it out: Firefox.
I read all of your comments and questions while I was gone – thanks for all the sweet messages! If you sent a question and didn’t get a response, please re-post it!
I’ve got a long to-do list of things I’ve been putting off while I was busy throughout the semester. What would I do without Todoist.com!?
I’ve got wheatberries on the stove and a timer going off every 10 minutes to remind me to check them. Laundry in the washer. Grocery shopping to do. Cleaning out my closet of old clothes and a trip to GoodWill. Reorganizing of the spare room. A trip to Sears. And more. All happy chores though!
