It wasn’t as much of a snow day as it was a cold day.
It never even approached 1 degree. And see that feels like temperature? Negative 30! That’s why we didn’t have school today AND we don’t have school tomorrow. Yippee for freezing temperatures!
I actually braved the cold to run some errands today, and I wish I had been wearing a face mask – the air was so cold it was difficult to breathe. It’s a good thing I have a Baby Cakes growing inside to keep me warm.
In addition to errands, I did about 60 minutes of DVD prenatal yoga (it was lame), cleaned my house (top to bottom), did a few loads of laundry, and played with my new camera. Just about anything I could think of to evade the pile of papers that needed to be graded today.
Lunch after errands…
bread, hummus, Dijon mustard, spinach, cucumber, sprouts – an open faced sandwich, inspired by my newest favorite place for recipes – Engine 2.
Then I baked some mighty muffins from the same place.
So grainy and delicious – they’re basically oatbran and mashed banana. I can’t wait to make these again and throw some goodies inside – I’m thinking chocolate chips, more nuts, dried cranberries, oh my!
After puttering around the house, I buckled down to grade papers. But not before a snack.
I’ve been craving this green juice ever since I saw Mama Pea drinking it.
It was so good! Just the taste I had been hankering for. It went perfectly with some cinnamon toast hamburger bun.
For dinner, it was more goodness from the fellows over at Engine 2.
And that’s a wrap! I’m so happy to have another
day off tomorrow!
