You know I don't take a lot of days off, and it only happens when I PLAN it.
So I did.
It's been a busy day, but a good one.
First off, my granddaughter and I took Roy for a 4 miler. She didn't complain one bit.
In fact, she explained that she usually always felt better after she exercised.
Out of the mouths of babes.
She told me that sometimes, when she is not having a good day, she runs around the block once, and she immediately feels better.
Sometimes I think she is smarter than most adults.
After we got back from our walk, we made whole wheat, banana, chocolate chip muffins. We found a recipe online, and then fooled around with it a bit.
Teaching her bad habits probably, although I have a feeling she would have come up with this herself.
While my daughter was making lunch, I made some leek potato soup. It is the easiest comfort food I know.
I have posted about it before, but if you want the recipe, it is HERE
Check it out for exact measurements. But it is a breeze to make.
I just threw the leeks sliced thin and a big onion chopped into the pot, sauteed them in some EVO, added chicken stock to cover (even though I don't eat meat, I am not adverse to chicken stock) add sliced potatoes with the peels, cook them til they are tender, mash them right in the pot, add some heavy cream, salt and pepper.
YUM. Great soup.
By the time we finished lunch, the muffins were done. We ate them hot with the chocolate melting in our mouths.
I am going to start a sweater for her tonight, and watch the Good Wife, and start a new book.
While I know there is plenty of work waiting for me at the studio tomorrow, I am staying right here in this day.
And it's just fine.
