Good morning and happy Monday! It’s a dreary start to the day over here. It was pouring down rain when I woke up, which made getting motivated for a Monday almost impossible. I meant to type this up last night, but Riley and I started watching Stranger Things 2 and got caught up in it, so instead I’m sipping on my morning chai tea at the office while we chat.
I felt a cold coming on Friday and have felt under the weather since then. Nothing major, but enough to make me not want to do anything except snuggle under a blanket. I was in bed by 8:30 on Friday with my throat coat tea and my Kindle. I had to work on Saturday, so it ended up being a pretty short weekend for me.
After work on Saturday, I desperately tried to take a nap, but Bella was not having it. She whined and begged until I took her out for a walk. Of course, the colder it is outside, the happier she is!
After the walk, she still wanted to sit outside and soak in the crisp, 42 degree air. It’s hard to get mad at that face, but momma really wanted a nap!
By the time I could’ve taken one, it was already 5:00, so I gave up. Instead, Riley and I spent our evening in front of the fireplace.
Funny story….We tried to have a fire on Friday night, but I forgot to open the damper thing to the chimney, so instead smoke filled our whole house and set off the smoke alarms. Total fail. Attempt #2 was much better! Saturday’s dinner was zucchini noodles, marinara, vegan meatballs, and vegan cheese. Who am I?!
Sunday morning, Riley called out sick to work (sorry, babe!) so we both spent the day sniffling and tossing my bottle of Airborne back and forth. We did venture out to grab breakfast, though, which was really good.
Not much else of note happened on Sunday. I did some meal prep and made a veggie loaf to eat throughout the week. We also started Stranger Things 2 and got through 3 episodes, which resulted in the weirdest dreams last night.
And now it’s Monday again……I’ll probably spend most of the week holed up in my office reading applications, sipping tea, and huddling by my space heater. Exciting times, you guys. Let’s do this!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
Would you rather have tea or coffee?
