Monday already?

The only good thing about today is that it’s kind of my Thursday or Friday! We haven’t decided yet if we’ll be at work for part of the day tomorrow  – that will depend on how the packing goes tonight and if we get everything together and ready to go.

Monday mornings mean I need a good, hearty breakfast.


We still have a good amount of fruit in the house, so I tried to put a lot in my bowl this morning – mission accomplished, I think  🙂

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp flax
  • 1/2 white peach
  • 1/2 cup or so blueberries


I think I could eat these farmer’s market peaches every day and be happy. They are perfectly ripe.

Something fun for Monday! I’ve noticed that I’ve had some new readers lately, so hi! Thanks for stopping by  🙂

Where are you at? You don’t have to list the city if you don’t want, but if you read this post this morning, at least post what state / country you’re in! I think it will be fun to see where everyone is.

Happy Monday morning! This is going to be fast + not too wordy since I’m trying to blog, eat, watch the news, and spend time with my sister and her husband!

Oatmeal is good for a hungry belly – I woke up starving this morning, so this is just what I needed.


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • handful strawberries and blueberries
  • cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground flax


Plus a hard boiled egg for a little kick of protein

I’m hoping this gets me through my Monday morning – they’re always the busiest!

Thundering Hunger

I was woken up last night a couple of times by the loudest, closest thunder I have ever heard. It honestly sounded like our house was about to be ripped in half – the house was shaking, it was pouring outside, and there was lightening. This storm came out of nowhere! Yesterday was beautiful and we weren’t supposed to have any rain or storms last night. It was crazy – Nick told me this morning that he woke up at one point, heard the super loud thundering, said he thought “well, maybe this is the end of the world” – and then just went back to sleep! I guess if you’re gonna go, you might as well be comfy in bed  🙂

Our dinner was pretty early last night (5:30) and I usually have a snack at night if we eat that early but I was still full when I went to bed. That usually means that I’m going to be starving in the morning when I get up. And I was.

Nick made me some coffee this morning, for starters. We both missed it yesterday!


They had a little coffeemaker at the cabin, but we weren’t sure if they would also be bringing some with breakfast so we waited to find out. They didn’t, and by then, we were just too lazy to make any since we needed to get home. The coffee was good this morning.

All I could think about was a humongous bowl of oatmeal to fill my belly this morning


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1 whole banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup or so frozen mixed berries
  • cinnamon
  • flax


I always forget that I have flax in the house – I love it, but never remember to use it.

I’m trying a new sandwich combination at lunch – it should be good and I’m excited 🙂


What’s your favorite way to use flax?
