That is what time I woke up this morning. Needless to say, I was none too pleased about the situation. After several failed attempts at going back to sleep, I decided to just get up and go completely out of my way to find the wheat berries I wanted… if I am making sprouted bread on Sunday, I need to start sprouting the wheat berries on Wednesday night, and I can’t find the brand I want. (Yes, it matters, because I don’t want to mix two brands and I already have an open bag. And besides, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.)
First, though, I somehow managed to dip the edge of my towel in the toilet when I got out of the shower. Awesome.
Then I tried out another new yogurt…
Apple flavored yogurt?? I’d never heard of that before, so I was intrigued.
One day, I am going to make a pretty parfait. But, until then, here’s what I had for now!
Last night, I cooked up some basic cinnamon oats, which I refrigerated overnight. This morning, I layered the oats with the yogurt and a chopped Fuji apple. While it didn’t taste like any apple I’ve ever eaten, the yogurt was pretty good.
Everything was moving along at a steady pace, and I was ahead of schedule (duh — I woke up much too early not to be ahead of schedule!), so I headed out to go buy my wheat berries, which would require me to go way further uptown than usual.
In short, public transportation was not cooperative. At all. I ended up arriving at the gym fifteen minutes later than usual. But I did get these! (Sorry for the blurry picture… my eyes are so tired by the time I get home on Wednesdays that I can’t even tell on the LCD screen!)
I’ve only ever used the hard red spring wheat berries before; and to make it “worth my while” for having dragged myself all the way up there, I bought the soft white berries too. Because I don’t have too many grains at home, or anything.
Another purchase I made today:
I only have between half a dozen and a dozen pairs of sunglasses… but running in fashion sunglasses is not exactly easy on the nose, if you know what I mean. Actually, I was supposed to be buying gloves for my mom, since she lost hers. Somehow, I wound up buying these. (I did get her gloves…) Can you tell I’m really hoping it doesn’t rain on the day of the race?!… I don’t want to ruin my shoes!! Somehow, even though I’ve run outside with them, they’re still pristine.
Blah, blah, blah, work, work, work, school, school, school… at which point I had already been awake for over twelve hours. Bad situation.
I’m counting down to graduation in PBJ sandwiches, since I never really eat them except for at school. Eight more to go! (Actually, that’s inaccurate, because Pesach obviously means no PBJ sandwich, but whatever.) And next week, I get to eat food for dinner on Wednesday instead of a sandwich, because I am on spring break now. Hip, hip, hooray.
The palpable lack of excitement is due to the fact that A) I have a midterm on the day I come back; and B) my other professor oh-so-kindly assigned a sh!tload of work to do over the next two weeks, “because I know you have nothing else to do during spring break.”
Seriously, if that is your idea of a joke… it isn’t funny!!
I need to go to sleep.
Not-so-random random question of the day… toilet paper: over or under? OVER ALL THE WAY!!!
