Why I Don’t Photograph Everything I Eat

September 18, 2011

Today was a successful day. I got (almost) everything checked off my to-do list!

– laundry

– general cleaning

– cookies baked

– (some) homework done

– school work done

– blog post (almost done πŸ˜‰ )

This morning got started early at 6 a.m. because I haven’t been sleeping well. A combination of school stress and thinking about all I wanted to accomplish has left me waking up far earlier than necessary.

When I got up this morning, I folded laundry, emptied the dishwasher, and then got ready to ride my bike to Starbucks to do some work.

It was still on the dark side when I rode my bike, so I made sure to turn on my blinking light. (This is a headlamp light I strapped to my bike. I’m too cheap to buy a real bike light.)

I chose to go to Starbucks because I have been wanting to try a Pumpkin Spice Latte since its the current craze, and I know it won’t be around forever.

That would be a tall decaf pumpkin spice latte with 2 shots of pumpkin spice and no whipped cream.

I thought the latte was okay. I actually don’t know how much I lattes anyway. I think I’ll stick to my drip coffee or Americano with cream and sugar.

I also enjoyed a bowl of overnight oats.

My overnight oats are always super thick by the morning! Love them that way.

After doing some work and attempting to do some studying, it was time to bike back home.

It was a beautiful morning.

Fall is definitely here!

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. I absolutely love fall, but I hate what comes after it: the-season-that-shall-not-be-named!!

When I got back home, I showered and got ready for church. After church, I made a quick stop at the grocery store for some weekly essentials.

Then it was time for lunch.

And this is why I don’t photograph everything I eat. Would you want to eat this? I wouldn’t either by looking at it but it sure tasted good!

cheese quesadilla + roasted potatoes (with ketchup) + nectarine

I also had some Kombucha No. 3. (I saved the rest for Craig because he loves kombucha!)

I had been wanting to try this flavor—it has lavender in it! It was good!!

Some Ben & Jerry’s rounded out my lunch. πŸ™‚

I’m enjoying the rest of my evening with Craig. . . . trying to forget about my Sunday blues. I’ve had them all day. πŸ™

Question

How do you remedy your Sunday blues?

    1. We often watch SNL re-runs on Sunday evening. It gives me something to look forward to instead of focusing on the next day.
      Also, what are you studying/doing homework for?

    1. I try to get all my laundry and housework done for the week on Sunday, then I don’t dread the week quite as much! Re-runs of House and Keeping Up with the Kardashians help too…I admit it! πŸ™‚

    1. Sunday blues – not sure I have had them for while, but usually get them worse in the winter in MN, because I haven’t been able to get out either too cold, snowy or icy. If I do get them I watch a romance show or call a friend to talk.

      Thanks for the email the other day. Hope things do really get settled down.

    1. I laughed out loud when you said the season-that-must-not-be-named.
      Also, to keep me sane I am going back through all the seasons of 30 rock on Netflix. And doing yoga more.
