This morning while driving to work and singing along to Diamond Rio sing “kissable, huggable, loveable, unbelievable,” I caught a big long whiff of freshly cut grass.
During those 10 seconds I went soaring into spring time and nothing could bring me down!
Later on at work this morning I noticed I was feeling groggy and grouchy (apparently the fresh cut grass scent wore off and I came back to a harsh reality ). As if reading my mind a girl I work with asked if I wanted to join her for a walk around the lake over the lunch hour (which is about 4-5 K). By no means did we boogie but we walked quickly enough to get my heart rate up which is all that matters!
After being cooped up inside all winter I am absolutely adoring being outside these days.
Soon we will be spending our weekends out at the cottage where I can run at sunrise and relax on the deck at sunset.
The scent of fresh cut grass, a walk to clear the grogginess and the anticipation of weekends away from the city…These are a few of my favorite things!
This morning I started my day with this beautiful NEW bowl (thank you Homesense for once again convincing me to spend way too much money) made out of recycled glass. Can you see the sun? We bought one in pink, red and green. I KNOW I KNOW. LIKE I NEED MORE BOWLS
The bowl was filled with shredded wheat bundles, ½ of a banana, a few strawberries and a sprinkling of fresh made yummy homemade granola.
After our walk at lunch I came back to the office and quickly threw this together…And managed to snap a photo too!
A whole wheat tortilla filled with crockpot refried beans (these freeze SO well!), greek yogurt, sour cream and romaine lettuce! On the side were some orange peppers and a juice-dripping-down-my-chin mango.
My mango love is back….Oh who am I kidding? It never left…
Well, now I am off to meet Janet for our “wog,” then go home and do some review and possibly write another exam…We will see how I feel!
What are a few of YOUR favorite things?
