I think the presentation went well! My voice was a little shaky at the beginning, but I simply let out a laugh, told myself to slow down (yes…literally, out loud ) and continued on with the presentation just fine.
I felt on cloud nine after all was said and done. There are still a lot of projects and papers to complete before graduation, but it sure felt good to finish this presentation! Some other highlights of the day:
Highlight #1: LUNCH!
I packed some leftover Veganomicon Snobby Joes (click for recipe!) with some chopped baby spinach and 1/4 an avocado, along with some kashis for dipping. I liked it even better chilled as a lunch today then while eating it hot in a wrap last night. So yummy!
Highlight #2: Long WALKS!
As most of you know, I’m still recovering from a knee and foot injury (i.e., maximum running = once a week.) The first month of not running felt like absolute torture and I still have my moments ( ) but I’m definitely falling in love with long walks. They’re especially fun when a walking partner is involved, and I love how it’s a low impact workout, which allows me to go a couple of times a day. These past few days have involved a long walk in the morning and shorter walk after supper. LOVE it!
Highlight #3: Quick and Simple Dinners
Sometimes you can’t beet simplicity. Simply steamed asparagus. Simply cooked brown rice. Simply cooked haddock with a bit of Organic Late July Crackers and a pat of butter. Simple. Delicious. Simply Delicious.
Highlight #4: Vacation Days
No classes tomorrow = catch up day. Who doesn’t love a catch up day now and again?
Highlight #5: Memere’s baking
My Memere baked a strawberry rhubarb pie today and I savored each and every bite. She makes the. best. crust. ever. So light and flaky. It was a tiny peice but hit the sweet spot perfectly.
Highlight #6: Chillaxin
I’m just now relaxing with the “Joy of Cooking” and the Biggest Loser.
Question: What is one of your favorite leftovers to use for the next day? I love using leftovers! One of my favorite leftover items to have is brown rice because it’s so incredibly versatile and pairs perfectly with a variety of mixed beans, salsa, cheese, avocado, and/or different spices. So simple but so good!
