Sometimes I get so absorbed in the moment that I completely forget to whip out the camera. That was me, yesterday, as the entire family gathered around to celebrate “mom’s day“. I found myself deeply entrenched in the simplicity of life. Eating, laughing, talking.
In fact, all I had on my camera was a random shot of shrimp (of which I ate more than my fair share…oops!)
And this other random shot of my dad stealing my dill pickle. Don’t worry, I saved the pickle and all was well in the world again. 😉
Tonight is my last night studying for finals. My last night studying as a senior in college. Last night. What a strange, strange feeling.
Anyways, I’m getting ahead of myself. I really need to stay focused today in an effort to study for my business management exam. Business management. Who would have guessed that business management would be the last exam I’d ever take as a nutrition major? Somehow chemistry would seem more fitting. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. 😉
OIAJ! (oats in a jar!)
In the kitchen sat a big bunch of super ripe bananas, which warranted good reason to whip up the ol’ standby classic.
- 1/4 c. oatbran + 1/4 c. wheatbran (stirred in towards end)
- 1 c. milk + 3/4 c. water
- 1 banana, sliced (saved 1/4 of it for the top)
- cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
I liked sprinkling the chia seeds on top of my oats, as I scraped my way through the jar. It made for a fun crunch and was much more obvious than when I mixed it in with everything else. Crunch, crunch, crunch. They remind me of poppy seeds!
…I also sprinkled on some Natures Path Pumpkin Flax Granola for good measure.
Plans for the day…
- walk, bike, walk
Keeping things simple, but that’s okay. Tomorrow I’m officially finished!
Question: Did you do anything fun for Mothers Day?
Question: What’s your favorite “unusual” or “not so average” way to stay active? I love mountain climbing in New Hampshire, along with kayaking and playing tennis. They’re all fun ways to keep active without really feeling like so-called “exercise”. 😉
