Hows your Monday goin? Up until now I’ve had a serious case of the Mondays….!
I’ve totally been having one of those birdbrain days…….as in I couldn’t find my purse and walked around the condo searching for it only to realize it was hanging on my shoulder. Uh yeah. I did manage to do 50 minutes of the latest Dave Farmar podcast though! It wasn’t as hard as the previous one but my heart wasn’t in it today and I kept falling all over the place. Finally, 50 minutes into it, I just cut it off. No point going through the entire thing if you aren’t reaping the mental benefits! I have a lot on my mind and usually yoga centers me but today I was all over the place.
After yoga I made a quick lunch before heading out to run errands. I LOVE these and today was the perfect day for it:
Seriously. So freakin’ good. Amy, I love you.
I also had 2 organic carrots with Naturally More pb, grape tomatoes and raspberries. It was a tasty meal!
I stopped by my parent’s house to drop off dinner for them tonight since my mom had to work last night and they couldn’t come to my dinner party. They got a plethora of leftovers though including Mediterranean grouper, garlic yuca and ceviche! When I pulled up to the house I saw that I had two packages! The first one was from Yolie, my yoga dear in the UK. My day was instantly brightened when I ripped open the package and red sparkles and confetti flew out! Have I mentioned how much I adore European goodies?!
And the second package was from Angela…..my belated birthday gift!! I had mentioned about a month ago how much I love her tea box since I am an avid herbal tea drinker myself. So what does the girl do?! Go and get me my very own special tea box stuffed with over a hundred tea bags!!!!!!!!! Ange, I love you! I will cherish this box forever 🙂
She also sent me a baggie of her yummy granola bars, which I can’t wait to break into. Sweeeeet!
When I got home I stuffed ALL of my tea into the tea box and now it is so stuffed I can’t even close the lid properly. Looks like we know what I’ll be drinking for awhile! 😉 I glued the little card that Yolie sent in her package to the inside of the box so whenever I open it I can think very happy thoughts and think of my Canadian and UK girlfriends—-
I had to run through Whole Foods to pick up some ingredients in bulk (spelt flour, oats, sugar…..) and with that my entire day turned around. I came home to start baking a HUGE batch of Super Charge Me Cookies (from Dreena Burton’s Eat Drink and Be Vegan) for us, my parents and Miss Amy, the lucky winner on Shop 4 A Cause! So far, I’ve eaten a little bit of dough but been pretty good (usually I consume about seven cookies worth of dough when I bake these) and I’m about to go meet Sarah for tea at Starbucks.
Thank you all SO MUCH for continuing to send weeknight dinner recipes for the new e-cookbook! Just a gentle reminder to be sure to email your recipe to HelpJennaRun@gmail.com , not my blog email address because I don’t want any recipes getting lost in black hole which is my inbox. Everything sounds great so far—keep ’em coming! 🙂
