So, I went back to work last week and to keep myself from doing any work at home today (consultants don’t get paid to telework), I decided to do a “day in the life” post!
Wake up 5am. z goes downstairs to check on the weather. No work for me, telework for z.
Turn off alarm and go back to sleep until 8:30! While I’m sleeping, z takes the pup out for a walk and measures the snow! I love the pictures he took!
While I was sleeping, z also put corned beef and veggies in the crockpot for dinner.
I finally get up and make some green juice for pre-breakfast. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Check email, blogs, and social media before pouring a bowl of cereal. I found this new cereal at Costco yesterday so I’m excited to try it.
Cut strawberries and pour unsweetened almond milk on top of cereal. Verdict: yum!
Post up on the couch with laptop and Louis.
After browsing the internet, with a baking project in mind, I find this recipe, for Lemon Chia Coffee Cake, and get to work! I deviated a little by using gluten free flour, extra zest, and blueberry Activia!
Behind the scenes it’s a crazy mess…
I washed dishes, put away clean dishes and ate lunch while it baked: Gluten Free Quinoa Tabbouleh with a piece of cheese and some horseradish hummus!
After 50 minutes of baking, I took the cake out of the oven and let it cool slightly before sampling…
Oh it’s good. Really good. z was even surprised that it was gluten free! Success!
Around 3:11 I reheated my coffee that I’d forgotten about…Phew, still good!
After a little walk with Louis, I cleaned off the cars (holy cow, that’s a TON of snow!). I was on the computer a lot today – I had to renew my anti-virus, play on Pinterest, etc. Very important work.
I started prepping for dinner around 5:30 which meant chopping cabbage, onions, and garlic to sauté. I also boiled some potatoes.
Guinness, of course.
My meal: cabbage, potatoes, and a veggie burger.
z had corned beef, cabbage, and crock pot veggies!
A nice St. Patrick’s snow day at home with my boys!
