RAIN AND SNOW ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ON SUNDAY IN THE FOOTHILLS AND PIEDMONT OF THE CAROLINAS AS A STRONG UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM MOVES FROM THE DEEP SOUTH TO THE CAROLINA COAST. IN THE CHARLOTTE METROPOLITAN AREA… SLEET WILL MIX WITH THE RAIN ON SUNDAY. BY EARLY EVENING PRECIPITATION WILL BECOME ALL SNOW… AND WILL CONTINUE SUNDAY NIGHT. BY MONDAY MORNING WHEN PRECIPITATION ENDS… SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 3 INCHES ARE EXPECTED FROM GAFFNEY TO FOREST CITY… RISING TO 5 INCHES AT HICKORY AND CHARLOTTE... AND TO ALMOST 7 INCHES AT STATESVILLE AND SALISBURY.
I didn’t set my alarm this morning but I woke up with exactly 8 hours of sleep. I still feel a bit flu-like, but after a session of yoga, I felt a lot better 🙂 I did 40 minutes of Shoulder Opener #1. I would recommend this class to folks who want to strengthen while they stretch out the upper body. With the exception of a really hard frog pose bind, this session was simple and effective with no lunge poses (for those of you who hate them). There was also a crow, which I held for FIVE SECONDS!!! I think I can officially say I “can do crow” now
Oats followed yoga, per usual. Today’s bowl was awesome –
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla almond milk, water, pinch salt, 1/4 large banana (leftover), vanilla
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 cup pumpkin, heated in bowl and stirred in at end (due to husband’s hatred of pumpkin in the pot)
- Tbsp pumpkin butter
- 1/2 Spooky Smores Z-bar, crumbled
- 1 heaping tsp Heath Toffee pieces
- Blob of Barney Butter
New coffee today: Millstone Vanilla Nut from Harris Teeter. For being less expensive than other flavors we’ve had lately, I liked it! With 2% milk…
MY EYE-FI CARD IS WORKING AGAIN!! YAY!!! (After spending 45 minutes last night trying to reconfigure it, I restarted my computer this morning and suddenly it works again. Guf!)
I’m turning this rainy day into a workday so I can play with my girlfriends tomorrow. We’re going to brunch and to see The Reader.

Crow is quite an accomplishment, very cool Kath!!
Have a nice rainy day, great movie day!
Hang in there with the weather!!
Sounds like weather to stay inside and relax! The oats are beautiful! Glad the Eye-Fi card is working!

Speaking of yoga, I’m going crazy on YogaDownload today! Thanks so much for that discount!! Which ones are your favorite? I’d really love to know because right now I’m just picking them based on ‘level’ and ratings.
My mom (who was good at computers before most people had computers!) always told me the first thing to do when things aren’t working is restart your computer. When I was younger and I’d tell her something was wrong, she’d always go, “did you restart it?” But even knowing that, sometimes it’s easy to forget.
Her other rule with electronics was #1, make sure it’s plugged in 🙂 Moms can be so smart sometimes!
Oh wow, I need to try that bowl of oats! 🙂
I hope it doesn’t snow us out tomorrow! Guess we better go buy milk!
Vanilla Nut? Mmm…that sounds delish!
Be safe in the weather!
Oh wow, looks delicious!
Sounds like some nasty weather is coming your way! Stay warm!!
Great bowl of oats this morning!!
Hey Kath, just letting you and other readers know I have a contest going on…. a chance to win some UK FOOD BARS!!
You may have tried them when you were in England!!
Check it out!!!
Yummy organe-y bowl!
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says
Great bowl of oats, and huge yoga accomplishment! WTG!
I’m dying to get an eye-fi card… I can never seem to find my cord when I need it!
I really liked The Reader! It wasn’t especially well-done, but quite entertaining 🙂
Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) says
Mmm…As Polly would say, yummy yoga & oats this morning Kath. Hope you’re feeling 100% and that you get all your work done today.
Eh, don’t you hate snow?! We are getting up to a foot here in Boston over the course of 3 days 🙁
I am so bummed!!! We had 50 degree weather yesterday now this crap!
That looks like an amazing breakfast. I ordered myself some chunky barney butter last week and can’t wait for it to get here!!
Your husband hates pumpkin oats?! WHAT?! Oh well, more for you =)
Red Head, Yellow Dog says
what a delicious looking bowl of oats!
wow, that oatmeal looks like an ice cream sunday
I hope you like The Reader. I really enjoyed it.
Your yummy coffee flavors make me sad because it is next to impossible to find good flavored coffee in SF. Everyone here likes it plain and strong! I used to get my beans at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill….
Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) says
Your oatmeal always looks so good!
Seeing your vitamin reminded me to take mine! Yay!
The Reader is a great movie,great acting, but be prepared for the explicit sex scenes in the beginning!
We are having similar weather today as well Kath! Stay warm and get better.
Weather = yikes. Congrats on crow though!
I can’t believe it’s going to snow! I think they’re calling for it in Maryland too – Booo.
Thanks for the tip on the shoulder yoga… good to know for the future.
Love the oats, as usual : ) Have a good workday!
keep dry! eats look incredible!
Sarah (lovINmytummy) says
That multi vitamin looks mouthwatering. Drool….
have fun seeing the reader. i preferred her in revolutionary road myself, but the reader is still great!
Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) says
Delicious oats! Enjoy the rainy day..sometimes they are nice and rejuvenating!
Kailey (SnackFace) says
I might cry if it snows again- I feel ya. Congrats on crow! That pose still looks impossible to me. Have a great day indoors and doing your work!
seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) says
OOOOHHH, can’t wait to see how the reader is. let us know!
thanks for your tips on Soymilk. Guf!! I foolishly added it to my coffee again this morning, praying that it would somehow NOT curdle this time–isn’t that the definition of insanity, doing the same thing repeatedly praying that it will somehow get a different outcome? 🙂
what kind of heath toffee do you use? Is it candy or in the baking section?
Beadie @ What I Ate Yesterday says
We are supposed to get snow here too, I am ready for spring 🙁
yay for crow! I am still working on it but I have acccomplished wheel which makes me feel proud!
YAY for crow!! I finally got it a few weeks ago and now am working on going from crow, to kicking my legs straight behind me and landing in plank. Every time so far i land on my face/belly and crack up! Oh well, it’s fun!!
Michelle Hisae ,
Time is running out! Hmmm my favorites:
Gentle Hatha I and II
ALL of the Power Vinyasa Flows!!
Yoga for Runners – the 20 minute version
Heart Opening + Hip Opening Flows
I can’t wait 😉
Guf is right!!
My toffee pieces are Heath brand.
love your oats as always.
ick…is winter over yet?
Between this dinner and last night’s, I am so impressed! You’ve really inspired this non-cook to get in the kitchen. Both of them look like must tries. You guys really have some skills!
Oh no not snow! Snow this time of year is the worst because you finally think it’s about to be spring, and then BAM!
I really wish that they had canned pumpkin in Australia. I may just have to bake and mash some and store it in the fridge for morning oatmeal.
We’re supposed to get an inch of snow here in Atlanta tomorrow. It was 60 degrees today. Huh?
pumpkin toffee buzz– sounds like a new clif bar flavor! yum.
is the destination somewhere to study under a yogi master someplace exotic and spirit-expanding.
Not only am I jealous of all your tasty food but I also am in love with all your beautiful dishes!
I’ve been trying the crow for ages. I just tried and almost wacked my face off the floor. lol….
kudos to you Kath.. seriously, that’s awesome!
