Today’s post is arguably going to be one of the most boring posts in a LONG LONG time. I stayed home from work today, ’cause I’m sick as a dog.
SOOO…as I sometimes do when the days are uneventful, I’ll embellish the day’s menu and events so you don’t fall asleep from start to finish.
I woke up this morning more stuffed up than ever,
so put a garden hose up my nostrils and let ‘er rip. Didn’t help much, so I called in sick and hunkered down for the day.
My appetite is ok though (funny that) so I put together a “picky” breakfast with a piece of Little Big Bread with light cream cheese and a bit of smoked salmon from our care package. The little piece of quiche and leftover fruit was also from the brunch package. I had an almond milk latte
in a mug I turned on a pottery wheel then glazed myself.
During the morning,
Anderson Cooper made me tea which I had with a little piece of my low-fat banana bread. I also tried the garden hose up the nostril trick again, still didn’t work.
Lunch time rolled around and I had some turkey soup from the freezer and a few saltines. I then spent FAR too long trolling around Pinterest,
where I got the idea to weave Neva’s castoff fur into yarn and whip up an eternity scarf before Dennis gets home.
Felt a bit bored this afternoon, which I saw as a good sign that I was getting better. To alleviate boredom, I plucked a few stray billy goat hairs that are popping up on my chin. (I WISH I was joking about that! :) However, my chin is now lovely and smooth!)
Dinner was a baked pork tenderloin with a sauce made with fridge odds and ends (plum sauce, peach jam, soy sauce, hot sauce), brown rice and some brussels sprouts (roasted with olive oil, balsamic, raisins, and sun-dried tomatoes).
Pretty sure I’ll be back to work tomorrow. And hopefully I’ll have something interesting to report so I don’t have to make things up again. :) More then….
