Thank you for the support re: my last post… I don’t mean to be impersonal, and I did fully intend to answer each comment individually — and I hope to still do that! — but I’m about to run out the door now…
Monday morning… not anybody’s favorite time of the week, is it? It certainly wasn’t mine this time around, as I mysteriously doubled in size since the day before. What I wanted to do was stay in bed all day; what I did do is haul myself to the gym. And I’m glad I did, because it helped a bit.
Residue from Sunday:
I made bagels again. At least they’re bagel-shaped this time. But seriously, I’m all out of patience; there are so many other exciting things to do than try to figure out why I seem to have lost the ability to make bagels!
Making quick work of them. Then again, I only made five.
Something slightly more exciting: I took another shot at those banana oat muffins. This time, I used muffin liners.
Which, as it turns out, I did not need to do…
They tasted good, and they had a lovely dense texture. The only qualm I have is what happened to the bottom.
WTF?… But, charcoal aside, I’m quite pleased!
And on the topic of muffins… my mom was in the neighborhood of the muffin man today.
She bought seven (freaking. huge!!) muffins for me. My freezer is now filled with muffins…
Let’s humor me and pretend to be surprised to see this again…
Brown and wild rice, broccoli, carrots, baby bellas, and bok choy stalk… over spinach, because it looked like me… all sad and lonely without a bed of greenery.
This is what I should have worn today, given how I was feeling this morning… but I couldn’t, because I wore it yesterday.
Can I just say that Aeropostale guys’ hoodies > girls’ hoodies? They are freaking huge. (Yep, that’s a good thing in my book, at least in this case. Not so much with the muffins! And the sleeves are long enough for me to pull them over my hands if I feel so inclined, which I often do.)
There was something lovely that happened today, though, all-around crappiness notwithstanding. I received a package in the mail, courtesy of Jess…
Can’t wait to read this from cover to cover!! 😀
And at least tomorrow will bring one thing I like. Teaser:
Yeah, that would be necessary. Because if I want to go to the pool tomorrow, I’m going to have to walk there. According to Google Maps, that would take eighteen minutes. Perfectly fine when I’m dry; not so perfectly fine when I’m soaking wet. Hmm.
So, about my 500th post… In the past, I’ve said what would be included in a giveaway. But because I want to be able to leave it open to international readers, I’m not going to do that this time. I actually pondered doing a vlog instead, à la Katie, but I decided that the prospect of embarrassing myself more than usual just wasn’t so appealing. And then I’d have to password-protect it, which would just be a pain.
Soooo, I am going to host a giveaway. I’m just not going to say yet what is included in it. In fact, nobody is going to know what it is until the winner receives it! I guess you’ll just have to check out my past giveaways and decide whether or not you’re willing to trust my judgment on this one. 😉
To enter the giveaway… if you had to get stuck in Never Never Land, how old would you want to be? I’ll choose the winner… um, three posts from now!
I’ll leave you to ponder that… I’m off to my nutritionist. 😦
