Merry Christmas Eve Eve from New Hampshire!
Yesterday I wrapped up the work week. We celebrated the holidays at the office by ordering lunch and exchanging gifts. It was a great day that unfortunately ended with some frustrating news. I boarded my bus to Boston feeling a bit blue.
Let’s just say… it will be really good to get away for a while.
I let myself sleep in this morning and woke up with a rumbly tummy. While rummaging thought my parent’s house in search of breakfast, I was excited to discover Mum’s stash of chia seeds!
I have read a lot about the health benefits of chia seeds but had yet to try them. I sprinkled some on an english muffin topped with crunchy almond butter.
They didn’t really taste like much, but added a really nice extra crunch to the meal. I can’t wait to try them in oats and smoothies! On the side I had enjoyed a grapefruit and some coffee.
Coffee in a christmas mug is an instant cheerer-upper.
The best thing about eating grapefruit? The fresh juice you get to slurp up at the end. Yum!
The weather outside is gloomy and wet…
… which makes it the perfect day to get cozy, put on some Christmas music, and get to work!
At this point, it is a bit like Christmas threw up all over the house! There are boxes full of decorations all over the place. There is still a lot to do, but what better way to snap out of a bummer mood than by immersing yourself in the season?
Considering these are the only Christmas cookies I find in the house, I’m thinking I have a lot of work ahead of me! There’s also some shopping to finish up, and man, I’d love to make it to yoga. It’s been too long!
For you: What’s left on your holiday to-do list?
