Since I am on my own this week for dinners I didn’t want to spend too much time cooking. So tonight I opted for some breakfast for dinner. A big ol’ bowl of oats topped with half a very ripe peach, almond butter, and a ton of cinnamon. It has been a few weeks since I have taken the time to make oats and tonight it was really worth it.
Dinner was still on the table in about 15 minutes I am off to watch I Hate Valentines Day that I taped a few days ago. I am a sucker for anything with John Corbett (Aidan on Sex In The City) and Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). Hopefully it is worth watching.
Since Mike is out of town this week for work it has been very strange to come home to silence. Clifford and I were both sleepy this morning and really wanted to stay curled up in a warm bed and after I ran him outside he decided that he wanted to go back to bed. Very jealous of a dogs life today We went for a short walk this morning and played a little fetch before I headed into work.
For the first time ever, I didn’t listen to anything on the way to work. All of the local morning shows were talking about topics that had no interest to me so I turned the radio off. I drove to work in silence! Sitting in quiet is something I never do, I like to be busy and surround myself with activities and sounds. But today I enjoyed the quiet, I checked out all the green trees and noticed how pretty the Minnesota River looked as I drove over it. I don’t think this is something I will do everyday but I came to work much calmer and ready to start a crazy busy day.
Breakfast was a small container of granola, minus the yogurt that I forgot sitting on the kitchen island I hate wasting an unopened container of food but it won’t be too good after sitting out all day. At least the granola was good
What do you listen to in the morning? I listen to a Woman’s Talk Radio station but also flip back and forth between a few others. The one thing I do not listen to in the morning is music. Too much for me that early!
