Hot Stuff

What I thought was just change of weather sinus issues actually turned out to be a full blow cold/flu.  I’m not really sure which (whichever one comes with a fever, that’s it).  This is not the week to get sick.  Actually, now that I think of it, there really is no good time to get sick.  But, I got my bum into my desk chair and started plowing away at the work from home.  Sorry lab!


This is actually organized compared to how it was looking before I took the picture.  It was a gloomy day for the most part, so my “Creamy Pumpkin” candle burned in hopes that it would lift my spirits.


It did, slightly.  The scent really reminds me of fall and baking.  Too bad we have a pumpkin shortage on our hands and this candle is only a tease.

After awhile, a little rumbly in the tumbly made me search in the kitchen for a good sick day food. . . and I FOUND IT!

Aunt Brenda’s homemade tomato soup.  Perfect 🙂


I love when things are this easy:  just pour into microwaveable bowl and reheat!  Bam!  Instant comfort food (and a shot of lycopene)!


Doesn’t that just look divine?  Some crumbled ritz crackers (I know! Right!?  How gourmet of me hehe).   Next step is to steal the recipe from her…

I also thought it would be wise to pack my mouth full of vitamins:


I always think of this cartoon when I take my vitamins (not sure where I found this one at)


hahahahahahahahahaha (always induces the giggles)

So it’s off to teach cycling.  Not a smart choice, this I am aware of, however finding a sub last minute is like asking someone if they would like their head shaved….

But I did have a green monster!  Actually it was a Mud Monster.  This always happens when I add blueberries to the mix.  I don’t care about the color though, I LOVE BLUEBERRIES!!!!


*Notice how the clutter on the desk has diminished as the day has progressed.  I guess I made myself useful even while I was sick 🙂

So here’s the cycling playlist for this evening:

  • Radioactive – Kings of Leon (so pumped-new album October 19th)
  • Breakin Dishes – Rihanna
  • The Middle – Jimmy Eat World
  • Alejandro – Lady Gaga
  • Life Marches On – Live
  • Breathe, Stretch, Shake – Mase & P. Diddy
  • Uprising – Muse
  • Shake Ya Tailfeather – Nelly
  • Your Love – The Outfield
  • If I Never See Your Face Again – Maroon 5
  • Show Me The Money – Petey Pablo (I wonder if he was inspired by Jerry Maguire?)
  • So What – Pink
  • Naturally – Selena Gomez
  • T – Shirt – Shontelle


I think Charlie is happy that I’m getting out of my desk chair today:




Before I head out, I want to thank you for all your positive comments on Self Love.   Please continue to keep those points in mind throughout the week.  There will be follow up posts about it in the future.  I don’t want you to forget how amazing you are.  🙂
