Don’t you just love random, unscheduled days off from work?? I never knew how happy an unplanned day off from work could make me until today. I drove all the way to the office only to discover that the building was closed and everyone was being sent home! Sure I spent almost two hours in the car this morning – but it was a treat to have almost a full day off!
The only glitch was, I was actually looking forward to going to work today. I had even baked cookies for a two hour meeting that was on the schedule this morning:
That’s right. My colleagues were going to get to snack on cranberry oatmeal cookies this morning!
My morning started off pretty normally. I woke up, got ready for work, went downstairs and made a blueberry and banana smoothie. It was divine!! It had a deep purple color today due to the blueberries.
In the mix this morning (for two smoothies – one for me, one for mom)
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 handfuls of ice
1/2 cup blueberries
2/3 of one banana (frozen)
2 scoops of protein powder
1 scoop of PB2
1/2 C light soy milk
1/2 C water
a pinch of chia seeds
It was a really refreshing meal to go and I enjoyed it in the car.
I’m going to spend a good chunk of time reading, cleaning the house and cleaning my car today. I already went out and got a car wash! (My car thanked me, too)
What would you do with an unscheduled day off? If I had more time, I guess I would have gone to the beach – but it is going to be close to 100 degrees today, and I think that might just be a little too hot for me and the beach to get along well.
I hope you have a great rest of the day. See you soon!
