The worst part about winter is not wanting to wake up.
And I don’t mean that in a sadistic way.
I mean the “it’s so warm under here, and so cold out there,” feeling as you wake up and begin to poke a limb out, only to instantly feel a chill sneak through the miniscule gap you’d created.
That’s sort of how I was this morning.
It wasn’t terribly cold out – but I was hot all night, so my air was left on low. When my eyes flickered open I couldn’t help but want to burrow under my blanket!
Another sign that fall and winter are on their way? How dark it is getting to be in the morning! Soon my breakfast and dinner pictures won’t be anywhere near as endearing. Instead, they will be ruined by overhead fluorescents and motion blur.
Gotta enjoy the weather and daylight while it’s still here!
Don’t get me wrong, though – I’m not complaining about the weather we’ve been having! It’s been enjoyable to not find myself melting all day long – but I know what winter has in store…I am not looking forward to frozen toes and fingers and having to wear ten million layers in efforts to keep warm at the barn.
Come onnnnn, heated indoor!
Are you a summer, spring, fall, or winter person?
This probably seems random – but I’ve done it with broccoli, so why not?! I think green veggies (that aren’t lettuce or spinach) are the new lettuce 😉 Try it! You won’t be sorry.
I ran to the co-op during my break, too. I had to stock up on “the squiggly stuff” (AKA quinoa) that my mom loves so much. Which is odd, because she is very cut and dry as to what she likes when it comes to grains and such. I know quinoa is not a grain – but she hates whole wheat stuff, and even brown rice she doesn’t believe in.
But, she just loves the chickpea-quinoa pilaf and I heard a request for it 😉
Anybody else have any family members that surprise you in terms of what they like that you make?
I just adore this combo! I could probably be fed it for a week straight and not say a word of protest. This evenings mix was:
- roasted broccoli
- snap peas
- garlic hummus
- black beans
- smoked mozzarella
Sure, sure – the corn would have been great in the broccoli bowl – but I just couldn’t pass up my caveman moment 😉
Now – back to work!! I’d like to get the senior portraits I took yesterday up tonight for the girl.
But – Teddie says hi!! He was a ham this morning. Made me laugh.
