In contrast to last week’s fiasco, this Monday was the polar opposite. Positively unremarkable in every way, this day was sort of like a “template”. The foundation, the blank canvas. I don’t have a lot of days like this, because life is crazy and tends to fill up, but if someone asked me “What is a typical day like for you?”, then this is the story I would tell. Because this is the baseline. It goes like this:
I’m editing this post and the html tags around the word Coffee are “big” and “strong”. Indeed.
We do a “Happy Baby, Fit Mama” DVD. Seriously. Don’t judge! It was passed on to me by a Bonzai Reader and it’s AWESOME.
Oatmeal with ground flax and cinnamon, coconut cream, raspberries. Also a spoonful of blackstrap molasses, not pictured.
Mama-Baby Bath Time.
We always brush our teeth right after brekkies. Gotta get those molasses off!
Weekend leftovers from our favorite Lebanese place. Hummus with carrots, hummus on ‘matoes, tabbouleh, lentils and rice with tahini sauce on top (this combo rocks my taste buds so hard).
Waits took nap number 2 (not pictured), and I had coffee number 2 (not pictured) with my afternoon writing session. When Damian got home I got to making dinner.
I had some home brew while I cooked.
Lentil dal. Someday I will create a “healthy” rooster sauce (RAW rooster sauce??). Until then I will continue to eat and adore the original (I re-read the ingredients and really, it could be a lot worse).
Waits had what we had (minus the rooster). It’s so cool that he can do that now.
After Dinner Walk.
Work Work Work.
Back home, I put Waits to bed and then settled in to my work night. I drank 2 glasses of nettles with lime as I typed late into the night.
