Someone got the memo that it’s August and is supposed to be hot and humid here in upstate NY. I give! I give! The AC is on. Zak (and his brush) are back to work today. If he gets to spend the day in an air conditioned office so do we.
Today’s workout has been rescheduled to this evening to attend a yoga class. My first class, yoga or otherwise, in a very long time. My friend Andrea goes regularly and she suggested I could go as her guest at her YMCA class.
Work out time this morning was spent instead working to get our upstairs back in order after turning it completely upside down on Friday.
Bookcases refilled and reorganized. Games upstairs, bedroom closet cleared out, clothes moved, folded, put away. I’m already feeling more centered and less cluttered, despite the pile of clutter still to be put away over to my right here.
And now it’s time to pause and reflect over the wonder that is the breakfast cookie with coffee.
Holy 1% milk froth.
Today’s breakfast cookie was one for the Cookie Hall of Fame. What made this one so special you ask? Less milk!
1/2 smashed banana, 1+ Tbsp Almond butter, 1/2 c rolled oats, sprinkle of ground flax, sprinkle of organic shredded unsweetened coconut and just a very stingy splash of almond milk. And why I say stingy, I’m talking Ebenezer Liquid stingy.
Usually I use close to a 1/4 cup of milk, last night it was closer to a tablespoon. Firmer and definitely more like a cookie today.
Staycation over, time to get back into the swing of things.
On the agenda?
1. Work on this upstairs
2. Fire up the food dehydrator
3. Teach Ava crochet, Day 2. Can’t believe she actually got the yarn and hook out after yesterdays self inflicted meltdown. She said she wants to make herself mittens. Let’s get the chain part down first, ok kiddo? Hoping for less tears today. From us both. Do you remember being a kid trying to learn how to do this stuff?? Totally brings me back.
And for the record, this staycation was the most relaxing, cheapest, enjoyable family vacation we’ve yet to take as a family of 4. Sometimes staying home is where it’s at.
Coffee’s kicking in. Off I go.
