I’m having one of those wonderful days where you think to yourself, “I’m so productive. Look at how great I’m doing. Wow, I’m so on top of things.” Which is all crap really because I’m five billion years behind on my thesis and I need to put in another 10 hours of research assistant work before Friday morning and ahh. But whatever. Today I feel productive.
But I didn’t wake up feeling so fantastic. I woke up in a panic. I had one of those terribly realistic dreams last night. You know, the ones where you wake up and you aren’t sure what’s dream and what’s reality? Last night I dreamed that my supervisor pulled me into her office and said that they’d actually made a mistake, that I wasn’t going to be offered a position in the PhD program because I had not satisfied the course requirements. Agh!! Then when I woke up all stressed out and wondering what yoga studios to apply to, I realized that not only had I a) slept in but b) I had meetings with students all this morning that I was now going to be late for. Meetings about grade challenges. Double Agh!!
In the end though, everything worked out. The first student was still clearly displeased with the mark I had given him, but at least was able to admit that he had not, in fact, answered the question. The second student was super nice and made a good argument for an extra percent so I gave it to him. I’m generous like that.
Today was also fantastic because today was the day that I discovered this delightful breakfast:
Ezmy’s Rockin’ Muesli
3 cups quick oats or rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup coconut (or 1 cup dried fruit…but I love the coconut!)
Dump all ingredients in an airtight container and shake ‘er up! Makes almost 6 cups of awesomeness. I eat about 1/2 cup per day so that’s 12 breakfasts!! This is good served with warm or cold “milk”(I’m on a big chocolate soy kick right now but regular or vanilla soy, almond, rice, or hemp milk would work too…and would be healthier). Add some fresh fruit (bananas!!) and you’ve got yourself a sexy breakfast.
Stay tuned – I’m making something interesting for dinner tonight…if it turns out, I’ll take pictures and post.
Note: the picture above has nothing to do with anything but I just love how relaxed Zoe looks. Oh to be a cat!
