Well, this morning I headed to work with the rest of the world, but 9-5 did not reclaim its evil hold on my life just yet…the office closed down due to no power! Hello there, unexpected vacation day. 🙂
The power outage was immediately blamed on the ridiculously cold weather, as all things should be. It was getting downright chilly in there so we called it a day and headed home. I brought a little bit of work home with me, but not too much.
I got up bright and early this morning, more than ready to settle back into a normal routine. Vacation is great, but at some point, you just want real life back. You know? But the vacation gods had other plans. So ok :). I’ll go with it.
Sorry about the flash. My photography skills are in development :). Anyway, it’s true–I’m one of those people who drink way too much coffee and pretend I plan to stop drinking so much, but intend to do no such thing. Hehe.
This is holiday flavors from Chiardelli, and the white chocolate eggnog is sooo yummy. Even though it’s not quite as fun to drink something with “eggnog” in the title after Christmas, I managed.
Only 35 calories for a whole wedge, and I only used about half…and it doesn’t taste light at all! I swear. I toasted the bun this morning, assembled the sandwich, then stuck it in the fridge at work. When I was ready to eat, I just popped the whole sandwich in the microwave for 30 seconds.
I much prefer a “hot lunch” to a “cold lunch,” even in the summer…Ack! Momentary flashback to middle school Salisbury steak. Give me a second…recovering.
So yeah, that’s it! And it tastes like something you would get in a cafe. I also had a side of grape tomatoes and a clementine, and I’m thinking an afternoon snack will be called for later if (if? heh) I get hungry:
LaraBars are just the best. I must give whoever came up with the name “Cashew Cookie” due credit, because that’s exactly what this bar tastes like. Who doesn’t want to eat an energy bar disguised as a cookie? It’s like Superman…when he takes off his little wrapper he’s health food! When he puts it back on, he’s a cookie!
Right. And unlike lots of energy bars with a bunch of scary, unpronounceable ingredients, this one is just fruit and nuts. Mmm. 🙂
Well, I guess I’m going to entertain myself the rest of the afternoon with that work I brought home (sigh :)) and then to the GYM! It’s been way too long, and I actually really miss it. I’ll give you a recap of my workout when I get back. Don’t get too excited..the other day when I was running, I’m pretty sure I saw a baby turtle shake his head in disdain as he flew by me.
See you later!
