A New Record

I finished the book I was reading and I am pretty sure I set a new record for myself. I NEVER read a book that fast – well unless it is one of D’s :) It was so good – I’m kind of sad it is over. That just means I get to start the other one that I got from the library – let’s see how long it takes me to read this one.

I went to the gym early again today. I am really enjoying my alone time in the AM and not having to rush through the place like a mad woman.

I was sure that oat bran was on the menu this morning. I really don’t think that I was meant to start my day with a cold breakfast – it is just not as satisfying. And right now after eating my delicious mixer of all things tasty, my tummy is feeling pretty darn happy.


I did the separate bowl technique again when I cooked the oat bran. Once I pulled the bowl out of the microwave I stirred in 1/4 cup cottage cheese and 1/2 cup pumpkin.


Once that made its way into a clean bowl the toppings went on – 1/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins, 2 tbsp roasted unsalted peanuts and a tsp of Raw Coconut Butter shavings.


The agenda today – try to clean a little, we might have some visitors tomorrow. Not that my house is a pit or anything but I do need to dust – oh how I hate to dust. Of course once I start cleaning the vacuum comes out because I can not possibly have a day when I do not vacuum – I live for it. Plus I love clean floors.

This afternoon my little dude has his 4 year check-up. He is soooooo not happy about having to go to the doctors. He keeps telling me that he is not going. Ugh, I can see it now - I am going to be the mom at the Dr.’s office with the screaming child today. I just might have to resort to bribery.

Have a great day. The weekend is in sight.

I wish I was a fast reader...I'm a snail! I love to vacuum too! I just got a new one for Christmas but I'm not using it until we move into the house! I am so excited for it!

Sometimes, you just gotta bribe 'em! Good luck at the doctor today.

Glad you enjoyed your WARM and filling breakfast. Looked yummy as always.
