Lunch Oasis

Today’s meal consisted of fried mashed potatoes with eggs and summer sausage. Country comfort food!

In an effort to make my day less like a perpetual to do list I have decided to try using my lunch break more like a dinner party. The goal is to build in a bit of down time into my day so that I’m less frazzled at the end of it. Not to mention it saves money and is probably a lot healthier.

Today was another “do” day where I ran around and did all the things that needed doing. That’s all great and stuff but I’m getting sooooo tired. I can’t spend my life rushing through projects and lists. It’s not healthy and I think it may even be counter productive sometimes.

So I’m going to take the time to make myself a nice meal. Yes. I’m going to COOK on my lunch break. Not because I have to but because I want to. It feels nourishing and it’s almost a luxury. I happen to love cooking just a bit more than I love eating. I get that I’m weird and that many people would prefer a drive through meal over cooking. I just feel like cooking for someone is a wonderful way to love them. Why not love myself a little then?

Care to join me for lunch? 🙂

Friends

My Girls

We had a girls day planned for months now. The snow was behaving itself for once and my two sweet girlfriends made the trek over the mountains to see me. These ladies mean the world to me. We grew up together.  We have seen the worst in one another and came out friends every time. We have accepted our flaws and shortcomings and embraced the good in one another. We have laughed so hard we cried.(or as in my case, snorted) We whole heartedly agree on many things but you could not find 3 more different people. November is a time to reflect on what we are thankful for. These two are at the top of my list.
