Someone is feeling extraordinarily lazy right now. Not naming any names, or anything…
Actually, I have a random question. Do you think it’s better to force yourself to get out and do things when you just want to crawl into bed?? I guess that’s not really a fair question, since it would probably depend on why you want to crawl into bed! Let me put it this way: I went to bed pretty early yesterday, and I only woke up twice during the night, so I should not realistically be “tired.” And the outing in question was to the pool. I like to swim. It’s just the initial steps I need to take to start moving to get there that are so difficult. I’m not sure whether I ought to attribute that to depression or the fact that I’m generally a lazy individual, but it is getting kind of frustrating to always have to be pushing myself to just do something.
My alarm rang at 5.10 this morning. There was a faint blaring sound coming from somewhere in the house at the same time… naturally, I had to figure out what it was! It turned out to be the alarm from the radio downstairs in the kitchen. My dad apparently pressed something, but didn’t know what it was; evidently, he set the alarm. (Let me just say that I find this radio to be extremely annoying: I never, ever use it, but for some reason I’m the only one in this house who can manage to work it beyond turning it on / off!)
Yesterday, I wanted to get some things in Whole Foods, but the weather deterred me; I hate carrying paper bags in the rain. Actually, I hate carrying any bags in the rain, since I usually bring my own bag anyway… I’m all for being green and everything, but I really don’t like those paper bags. Anyway. I bought Lightlife steak strips, kamut flakes, Peanut Butter Pows, and Truvia. But what I really wanted was Almond Dream… and of course, they didn’t have the unsweetened variety. Oh, well. (You notice the excessive cereal-buying… I am working on my “Ode to Cereal” post, but you can understand why it’s taking a while! ;))
I would have gone to another Whole Foods during my lunch break, but it was meet-the-friend day! You know how some people feel like they need to have interesting / pretty eats to post on their blog? Well, I think I’m feeling that kind of “pressure” from my friend now, because she thinks I always have such fabulous lunches! Hmm.
I have said this over and over again, but I hate coconut. Still, when I found a can of coconut milk with a kosher symbol, I pounced on it, because I had never seen that before! This seemed like as good a thing to do with it as any… I changed some of the measurements, and I added some cubed tofu. It looks really pretty, if I do say so myself. :p And without the liquid, it doesn’t even taste very much like coconut. In fact, I really liked it! I froze the other half of the can (note to self: shake the can before opening it!), so I can repeat this recipe… and eat it hot, the way it probably should be eaten. Accompanied by naan? 😉
Mr. J, in case it is not obvious by now, makes life far more complex than it needs to be. For various reasons which I will not mention here, I ended up having to leave the office early today (no complaints!) to go on an “errand.” This was especially welcome because the stupid air vent is open again, which means I’m freezing my butt off all day. The aforementioned errand didn’t take as long as expected, so I was able to go to that other Whole Foods and buy my almond milk. Yay!
Speaking of Whole Foods… I like heat / spice, but this salsa just kills me. I wanted to get a more “interesting” variety, but Whole Foods’ selection is so huge that I cannot possibly choose just one type! I was leaning towards the raspberry chipotle, but I think that’s just because I like the name. Any salsa suggestions?!
Let’s pretend for a moment that it’s summer again.
Almond milk blended with frozen strawberries and raspberries… I really, really, really need a new blender. Gah.
Someone at the pool asked me if I just went to Florida. I think my two-toned legs had something to do with that. How embarrassing.
This post is sadly devoid of visual stimulation. Apologies… it matches my current brain activity. I don’t know why I am so tired!! I am afraid this might justify another call to my endocrinologist, and I really, really don’t want to increase my dosage… I may as well just pop OTC diet pills, it apparently does the same thing! Ugh.
Anyway, “Art Therapy Archives.”
I have no idea what this is supposed to be, actually. I don’t think I ever knew. I don’t remember the name, but I do recall that it mentioned tentacles and bubbles. Psychoanalyze that.
Class tomorrow… ahhhhhh!! (To clarify, that was absolutely not a sigh of relief.)
Have a happy Hump Day!
