I love that Sundays often feel slower than all the other days in the week. Although I usually have a lot of stuff to do, I like the feeling that the weekend is stretching itself out so I can get everything done that I need to do and still enjoy the day.
The shakes last night turned out awesome!
This was the best homemade milkshake I’ve made so far. It made 2 and I used about a cup of frozen mixed berries, 1.5 cups slow churned vanilla ice cream, and 2 cups of unsweetened original almond milk. So good! This was the perfect snack to have during the movie. Although this was the one that caught my eye, there were a few other cool summer drinks that I want to try very soon – especially the Orange Basil Cooler and the Lemon Verbena Iced Tea if I can find those leaves!
Taken was good! It was different than I thought it would be just based on the previews, but we both liked it. Very suspenseful, and I like that it wasn’t super long! It seems that most movies now are at least 2 hours long, but this was only 1 hr 33 minutes and it still packed in tons of action + got resolved.
Breakfast this morning was a Sunday usual of eggs and oatbran for me
half an orange and a few extra strawberry slices from yesterday
and a fat free peppermint mocha during church.
I got so hot during church today that I almost passed out! I don’t think the air was circulating enough, and I just felt really hot and dizzy, so I had to go sit in the hallway for a while. Thankfully, I didn’t actually pass out and I did start feeling better but that is never a fun feeling.
Nick and I were both ready for lunch when we got home – I got him some of his favorite hot dogs this week since they were on sale, so he grilled a few for him and I had him grill up a veggie burger for me.
I had it with ketchup and mustard on an arnold thin
Plus a big salad of romaine, tomato, corn, and avocado with some lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Then it was nap time :) We took about a 45 minute nap on the couch with Roxy and now I’m working on my list for today:
- Finish laundry
- Bake my first ever “real” scones
- Cook wheatberries + wheatberry salad(?) for lunches this week
- Make hard boiled eggs
I have a lot of stuff, but most of the cooking won’t take too long and the scone project should be fun – if they turn out :)
See you for dinner! I have no clue what I’m making!
