Cookbooks and Coffee Cups

Happy Humpday 🙂

I hope everyone is doing well today. It’s quite chilly in my little house right now and I’m nestled (on the floor) underneath quilts and blankets. I think the floor is growing on me. Really. Cookbooks and coffee cups surround my little floor/desk area and that’s all right with me.

overnight ooooats!


Same thing as usual but used 1/2 cup 5 grain cereal in lieu of oats. I don’t think I could ever get sick of this…

It’s my day off from the winery, which means it’s my day ON with writing all day. A little yoga and cooking thrown in there for good measure. 😉


Help a sister out! One of my best friends from high school’s friend is trying to raise funds for a project to restore parks in inner cities. They need all the help they can get!


Must go be productive!

    Sounds like a great humpday to me! I love spending time writing and testing recipes and staying indoors when it’s cold out

    I remember my ‘Life on the Floor’…not that bad, pretended lived in Japan with cozy comforters etc. It’s ‘Ninja’ to know not defined by things. Of course a bed is preferable, but when in transitional mode…do what we gotta do. Good writing! Always enjoy your True Slant pieces.

    Hope your day is super productive!!! I always love sitting on the floor, maybe it’s because I’m short.

    Good luck with all the writing! Sometimes it’s hard to keep motivated on an “off” day–but I’m sure the cooking/yoga/eating (I’d assume haha) breaks will help 🙂

    The floor can be comfy and cozy, but I hope you can get furniture soon! Love all that cinnamon.

    I totally understand the floor situation. I live in a dorm and my desk is always occupied so many meals are eaten on the tile floor — I kind of like it too!

    I’m always down for sitting on the floor. In my parent’s house they have a heated floor (I forget the official term for it) so it’s always warm and cozy down there!

    I slept on an air mattress for nearly a year after college graduation. I know the floor well 🙂 P.S. I love, love, love lots of cinnamon on overnight oatmeal!

    I love sitting on the floor and I do most of the time. It makes me feel more grounded. PS your oatmeal made me so hungry for oats this morning I had a bowl too!
