I had another round of insomnia last night 🙁 I feel like I did everything right: warm bath with lavender bubbles, dim lights, reading in bed for 45 minutes. I wasn’t sleepy at all. Maybe it’s hormonal? Or just an off body clock from New Year’s. So this time I came back downstairs and caught up on my blog reading 🙂 Around 11:30 I did get sleepy and then all was OK.
Upon waking around 8 this morning I did a 25-minute session of Power Yoga #3. This one was for beginners and it was VERY basic. Almost too slow for me, but very helpful with pose positioning. I do like the sun salutation flows 🙂
I am still believing in magic. My oatmeal photos were waiting for me on my desktop when I finished breakfast! This also means one less program to open (I used to use Windows Live Photo Gallery to import). Loving my new Eye-Fi!! Did you know they also make a card that sends photos straight to your internet photo site like Flicr or Facebook!?
I think my insomnia could be coffee related. Just like last spring, coffee is suddenly unappealing, and maybe that’s a sign? So today I had Coconut Chai Tea that my mom found for me at World Market.
Pumpkin Butterscotch Flax Oats
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, pinch salt, (left out the banana today to make them stretch the rest of the week. The oats were noticeably less sweet, but still good with the pumpkin butter.
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 2 tbsp wheatberries
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1 tbsp pumpkin butter
- 1/2 Honey Graham Z-bar
- Coconut butter flakes
- About 10 butterscotch chips
- Spoonful Smucker’s Natural
- 1/2 tbsp ground flax on top
Loving my new wide angle lens too!! This shot was so easy 🙂
I’m having a second cup of tea while I blog. I wouldn’t have taken this extra photo except it was so easy!!!
A little bird told me that ZestyCook is holding a giveaway today!! A book on photography technique. I’d love to win and learn how to make this new camera shine!
I actually have loads to do today. One of the reasons I can’t sleep might be anxiety of these last few days of vacation before I am slammed with Biochemistry, Food Science, Clinical Nutrition, Foodservice Equipment, and Developmental Psychology…. yikes!!!!!!!
Off to work on this to-do list…
