One day I’m practicing ashtanga poolside with the sun beating down on me and the next day I’m running outside with snow blowing in my face. Vacation is officially over. What a wake up call!
I’ve jumped right back into my normal routine. Saturday morning started with peanut butter toast, espresso and CrossFit. I actually went 7 whole days without eating peanut butter while I was gone…and didn’t miss it too much actually. I mean, how could you when there are warm croissants and fruit presented to you every morning instead?
Lunch at Whole Foods Saturday after taking yoga and before teaching a class. I was a little overly excited to discover they had sweet potato biscuits. I love them and haven’t seen them on the bar in forever.
I spent the afternoon cooking and baking. Given that we had snow flurries on and off all day, I thought it would be the perfect time to make one last batch of chili for this season. I made this Butternut Squash and Bean Vegetarian Chili.
I baked these Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars with Brown Sugar Glaze to take to my Sunday morning yogis as a treat since I left them last week. I added shredded coconut and chocolate chips to the recipe. They aren’t my favorite thing I’ve ever baked but they are pretty good.
I picked up this furry thing and gave her a bath. So any excitement she had over seeing me was quickly forgotten after I tortured her with a bath.
I’ll leave you with a little something I’m loving today…
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing,
there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase
doesn’t make any sense.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
