Back to the Grind

This weekend was productive but also quite relaxing… a nice break from the day-to-day grind. Fortunately I like my job and welcome the routine of the weekdays, so I am an odd-ball who doesn’t really mind Mondays.

How do you feel about Mondays?

My normal morning walk with Sadie was very enjoyable due to the time change. It was nice to walk with the sun up! Sadie was extra chipper this morning as well. I think we were both well-rested from our Gossip Girl marathon on the couch yesterday evening. 🙂

Halloween in St. Pete was great! All I really wanted was to see some trick-or-treaters and pass out candy and I got my Halloween wish.

My favorite costume was a flasher. This 10-year-old boy showed up in a trenchcoat and when I asked him what he was both he and his parents started laughing. I said I knew exactly what he was but wondered what he told the older people in the neighborhood when they asked him. He said he was still thinking of what to say and we decided on a detective. 😉

Though Halloween 2009 is done, my love for pumpkin lives on. For breakfast this morning, I blended 1/2 cup cottage cheese with one cup canned pumpkin, sweetener and pumpkin pie spice.

I topped the mix with South Beach Living chocolate-covered soy nuts and served it with a cup of Mighty Leaf chocolate mint truffle tea. Tasty!

  4. I HATE Mondays, Mike always leaves and I have to go back to work. I am trying very hard to stay positive today!

  5. Cottage cheese has always scared me, if that makes sense. Does the pumpkin mask the flavor of it?

    • I think the combination of blending the cottage cheese and the pumpkin together really transorms the cottage cheese. Without the chunks and salty flavor you really don’t realize you’re eating cottage cheese!
