Today is a day of my summer vacation! I’m taking off of bakery work to chill out in this air conditioned home. Even though my family didn’t use AC too much either when I was little (especially upstairs), something about AC makes me think of summer at home with my mom, watching Oprah and Full House after being out in the hot sun or at the pool.
Believe it or not, last night was the hottest I’ve been all summer! Not because of the weather, but because I swear fans in windows pulling in cool air is cooler than AC at night. I would have gone downstairs to turn off the AC and open all the windows but I was too scared of bugs! Instead, I splashed cold water on my wrists and neck and got back in bed. HOTness.
This morning I went with a no cook breakfast – a stuffed Dakota bun!
Mashed banana, sliced peach, sunflower butter, chia seeds!
Blackburries on the side
Even though this breakfast was nutritionally comparable to every other one I eat, it didn’t quittte leave me full enough. Bread is weird like that for breakfast. Like it doesn’t coat my stomach like yogurt, oats, smoothies, and pancakes do. Same with EGGS, which is why I never eat them for breakfast! I have noticed that it’s not that I’m really still hungry..just not full. It’s just a different biochemistry I suppose.
Cool coffee (from the bakery! half decaf)
Make lavender mint tea
Make dinner before lunch
Pick vegetables from my friend’s garden
Write 2 blog posts I’ve been procrastinating for 6 months
Ready, set, cool!
