I am not feeling very creative today, thus my perfunctory subject heading! I am a bit bummed out, actually. Ang and I were heading to Niagara today with the hopes of going across the river to Niagara Falls, NY to go shopping at Target, that great bastion of American consumerism (love those Archer Farms products!). However, she’s come down with a cold and I don’t want to risk my own health (and especially Henry’s) all for the sake of cheap Kashi cereal, y’know? So we will stay home and save our American pennies for another day. Ang, I hope you feel better!
I have been on a little Green Monster kick this week and I was happy to see that Oh She Glow‘s recently wrote about her own creation of the famous Green Monster. Today I’ve decided to be a deliberate copycat and show you my own, favourite Green Monster, which is pretty much exactly the same as hers!
1 cup of cow’s milk
1 spoonful of ground flax seed
1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
2 handfuls of spinach
Blended to create my favourite drink!
Served with a slice of healthy banana bread!
I also had a hard-boiled egg because I was feeling the need for some extra protein. You know how it goes.
Well, we are smack dab in the middle of January and I was thinking WHEN IS SPRING GOING TO GET HERE? But also I was thinking that the most depressing day of the year surely must be around the corner and I was right. It is! Circle Monday, January 24th on your calendar as the day to be grumpy, upset, sad, and p#@ed off! You have every right to be, you know. It’s the most depressing day of the year! I think I will stockpile the chocolate and PVR’d episodes of The Soup for just this very day.
I believe we are being hit with even more snow later today and tomorrow and, honestly, I don’t mind winter that much when I can stay inside with my baby, huddled under blankets. When I was working my keester off this summer, I had a coworker who would constantly remind me that life would be so different this winter when I got to stay home with my baby boy. I remember how much those words comforted me and now I am living them! It’s true. I would much rather stay at home with Henry in the winter then be at work in the summer. I am especially looking forward to staying home with Henry in the summer. Oh, the fun we will have together going for walks in the stroller, having picnics on the beach, and going swimming at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s. I wonder if he will help me plan my tomato garden?
