Morning! It’s a bright and sunny morning outside (albeit very cold) and I am overjoyed to be back at work this morning. I’ve spent the last week being in a considerable amount of pain and I’m so glad to be well onto the road to recovery. I have mostly full range of motion in my injured arm and now that I’m up and moving around, my aching back should start to ease as well (there’s only so much couch time a body can take!). I’m so glad that it was a long weekend for us as well because I needed that one extra day to get mobile and get some things taken care of.
Saturday morning after a slow start, we bundled up and went for a walk by the river. It was beautiful and cold and we had a really nice time. It wasn’t a super long walk but it was enough fresh air to rejuvenate us!
We stopped at a little boutique wine store on the way home and I spent a Christmas gift certificate and we got some instruction on how you cannot cellar white or rose wines, the fruit flavours don’t keep well. So, after our chilly walk along the river, we went home and I took one of the many bottles of white wine out of my downstairs fridge, put my cozies on and proceeded to watch the Olympics and drink wine. Too much wine. SO much wine….for someone who has barely had two glasses in a row! SO STUPID and I felt awful and sick and slept horribly and woke up and put this on Twitter:
SO STUPID. Did I say that already? Anyway, Sunday was pretty lowkey, did some cooking and had some company over for tea and then Monday was even lower key than Sunday. All in all I’m very glad to be feeling more like myself again! I get to hit the gym tomorrow and will spend some time today programming the rest of February for myself. I’m also going to spend some tiem today reviewing my February goals in light of the last week and a bit and see what and how much I can salvage.
In completely different news, I made homemade shampoo last night and so far I love it! It’s a combo of coconut milk (homemade or from the can), castille soap, avocado oil and gelatin and it gets followed with a diluted apple cider vinegar rinse. I’ll test run it for the rest of February and report back, but so far my hair has a nicer texture, is more manageable and is super shiny! They say it can take some time for your hair to adjust to the new ‘poo so I’m not holding my breath on results just yet!
And finally, go check the “FEED ME” tab, I made biscuits (with three ingredients) on the weekend and they were really good! They rival the best grain free “buns” I’ve ever made (Against All Grain Cashew Buns) but are quicker (these took about 10 minutes vs the AAG ones which were upwards of an hour) and MUCH cheaper (AAG cashew buns were almost $20 for 4). I wouldn’t make them weekly (as much as I want to) but for stew night or chili night, they are really nice and quick and easy!
