I don’t know about you guys but I’m in full-on Christmas mode over here, the music is playing, the packages are arriving and the gorgeous fluffy snowflakes falling all day certainly didn’t hurt the spirit. I was in Cambridge today for a meeting and was walking from my car to the building somewhat grumpy in that usual New Englander, “It’s cold out, I’m putting my head down, don’t talk to me, I just want to get inside” fashion. Then all of a sudden this massive snowflake floated right inside my mouth and hit my tongue. It immediately made me smile and brought me back to catching snowflakes as a child. At that moment I realized, ok snowflake, you got me, I’m being grumpy for no reason, I need to embrace this gorgeous Christmas snow and walk with my head up and a smile. I arrived to the building with eyelashes full of snow but for some reason it made me so happy! I know, I know, there is probably pollution and crap in the snow but screw it, go catch some snowflakes on your tongue!
For lunch I had a spinach salad with beets, carrots & feta and a bowl of butternut squash soup.
For dinner I made a spaghetti squash, sausage & feta bake which was freaking delicious, I’ll try to post the recipe for that one soon. We also had a little spinach salad for greens.
Head on over to Peas & Crayons for some more goodies!
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY (besides catching snowflakes on my tongue):
Reading the paper & enjoying a cup of coffee on Sundays.
I don’t get to do it every Sunday but I love the relaxing tradition of reading the paper and having a cup of coffee. Lately Tom & I have been hitting the gym in the morning and then we’ll visit our favorite breakfast place on the way home where we relax, read the paper and enjoy a nice hearty breakfast. Love it!
