Dreary day

Monday, April 6, 2009

Good thing I slept most of the day today considering it was cold, damp, and wet outside.  Where is that beautiful weather we had just a few weeks ago??

My body is slowly recovering from working 3 days in a row.  On the way home from work this morning I was SERIOUSLY craving some donuts.  I mean REALLY.  It was all I could think about as soon as I left work.  But then I thought, “do you really NEED those?” and of course the answer was “NO!”  So instead I came home and had a bowl of oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar and cream.   Not exactly the same thing, but probably a lot healthier, even accounting for the brown sugar and cream.  It was actually very yummy.  This time I made it in the microwave (1 min and 45 seconds) and then let it sit on the counter for about 5 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients, which made a HUGE difference in the taste.  It wasn’t so hot that I couldn’t taste the oats, the sweetness of the sugar, the thickness of the cream.  I’m definitely doing it like that from now on.

I was originally going to go out tonight to have a drink or two with some co-workers but then I got up and have the start of a sore throat…CURSES!!!  Combine that with the crappy weather and I decided to stay in.

We had pizza for dinner (frozen–we had bought ONE as an emergency…which was good since I didn’t feel like fixing anything!).  Now Kimm is watching her hockey game and it’s so cute I can hear her get mad at her team or the officials.

I’m heading off to take a nice hot steamy shower and then have one of these, and possibly one of these, and maybe even one of these.  Yes, it’s that kind of night.  Remember, I’m recuperating!  And maybe a couple episodes of Season Four of Ellen!

Hopefully tomorrow will be nicer out since I have some errands to run.
