Here in begins real life again. Breakfast at home. Pretty dishes. Writing projects. Recipe projects. Laundry. Cleaning. My fast + furious desktop computer. Conference calls. Charlottesville!
And the surgery waiting room. Matt just took Karen to the hospital and we will be waiting for a call around 3PM to signify we can go see her. We live just a mile from the hospital, so Karen said it would be wise to hold the waiting room at home instead of in the hospital’s tiny wing.
He asked me to make breakfast while he got ready to go and requested a smoothie. I happily whipped one up.
Blended dough style, which means oats were the majority ingredient!
For TWO smoothies
- 2/3 cup oats
- 1.5 cups milk
- 1 big banana
- 1/4 cup Vega Tropical Shake n Go smoothie mix
- 2 tbsp ground flax
As we unpacked our ENTIRE car and put away all of our Christmas presents, we discovered we had quite a crowd waiting to play outside! I would have loved to let these kitties inside to play, but Matt is very strongly allergic to cats, so unfortunately we can never have one as a pet – or even pet one for fear of dander on the hands 🙁 These guys live a few houses down with a pack of about 6 more!
As much as I love Christmas, this tree has GOT to go! It’s darkening up my bright and airy living room.
Thanks so much for all of your kind comments about Karen <3
