Do you splurge on food from time to time? Obviously, I do. One of the best things I treat myself to is fresh dairy milk from Whole Foods and the Crescent Ridge Dairy in Sharon, Massachusetts. The milk from this dairy is amazing. It is so fresh and it tastes so good. They make the milk in small batches and apparently this is one reason it tastes the way old fashion milk used to taste – excellent! Also, it is 100% growth hormone free, thankfully.
You can go to the Dairy and get milk, you can have it delivered or you can go to a Providence area (and maybe Boston?) Whole Foods and pick up a quart or a half gallon of fantastic milk. Just be prepared for the $1.50 bottle deposit. When you are ready to return it, just go to the customer service desk at Whole Foods, you can turn in your bottle and you will get your 1.50 back 🙂 It is so worth it.
So, for the next couple of weeks Wednesdays are my ‘day of rest’ while I am getting back on my feet from the surgery. It works out well, I guess, having two days of work one day of rest, two days of work and then a weekend. I have to be careful to not do too much on Wednesdays. Last night I slept very well and woke up at 9 o’clock. I had two cups of coffee and a bowl of cereal for breakfast. For some reason I couldn’t muster up the energy to make a bowl of oatmeal. This is slightly disturbing to me – but I am not going to think about it.
The cereal was good. Oatmeal would have been better, probably.
For lunch I had a piece of vegetable pizza from Whole Foods.
It was so good – I only wish I had another. (Sort of thankful that I do not!) While at WF I bought hemp plus pumpkin granola (we were out at home), an eggplant, two zucchini (they were babies), a summer squash, apples, bananas, chicken sausage and an onion. Tonight I’m doing a vegetable stew with chicken sausage. I am looking forward to this experiment. I will return to let you know how it goes.
It is a rainy, gray day here. I am going to take a nap now. It is a day of rest, after all.
