This is a donut peach hanging out with some blueberries in a pool of oats:
With the end of summer approaching (yes, I said it), the night before a new job felt like getting ready to go back to school. Clothes began to accumulate in a pile, while a pile of unorganized papers found their way neatly to my bag. James was in a charitable mood, and made a batch of blueberry muffins for me to have with my lunch.
These vegan muffins use silken tofu in place of eggs. The texture is different, but I like it much better.
Workity work… it feels so good to have more structure in my life. Obviously, I have a lot to learn, but I’m excited. For lunch, I found a bench outside and ate surrounded by a bunch of friendly construction workers.
Potato salad that I made for dinner last night:
Boil potatoes, mix with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and herbs of your choice.
A muffin (half devoured):
Oh hey, a Lara bar that I picked up this morning for a snack. The cherry pie flavor is okay; it’s very tart:
After work, I met James when I got off the subway (he works right there), and he treated me to a “first day of work” ice cream. I really wanted chocolate twist, but they were out of chocolate. I got this instead (what’s a girl to do?):
I decompressed for about an hour and a half before my 5 mile run. Running has recently become comparable to meditation. At first, my mind wanders, recapping the days events and tasks to be done. Eventually, I focus in on breathing, the rhythm of my steps, and stare off at an invisible point in the distance. A run like this leaves me spacey, internalized, and definitely not a conversationalist, but I feel 100% better.
We ran, we showered, and we went to grab a light bite to eat at Max Cafe.
Orange salad and a few small pieces of un-pictured bread (sorry, iPhone picture):
Finally, James begged me to post a link to this video. Enjoy.
