KM, I want to be in your apartment right now. I can just smell the aromas!! Thanks for giving me the lovely visual. I am not quite so energetic. First of all, I don't like to cook, and I like it even less since I started SP. I get confused about just what to cook and how to track it. But I have made other positive changes, so I beleive that this will also come in time. Today, I am sitting at my computer, with coffe, just finished my breakfast of oatmeal and berries. My hubby and I had a wonderful game of squash yesterday at the fitness centre, and I think that we will head there again this afternoon. Supper will be BLTs (cause my son loves them) with a healthy soup of some kind. I need to find a recipe for that. I wouldn't mind poking my head into a mall at some point just to get some ideas for Christmas. My DH is sitting and watching a documentary, which is quite interesting. It is a lovely quiet day, with a blanket of white snow on the ground outside.

After a down week I spent last night doing some general housecleaning and mentally clearing the clutter from my mind and spirit. I also set some pork to marinate in fresh apples, pepper roasted cashews and worcester. I applied a fresh layer of seasoning to my cast iron skillet (which I love almost as much as my husband) and set it on the freshly cleaned stove to meet me in the morning.
And what a morning it is! Beautiful clear sunshine hi-lighting the turning leaves on the cedar outside my window, children playing happily in the playground just beyond, a chilly freshness on the air. I love the fall for days like this!
A fresh breakfast of scrambled eggs, oatmeal, juice and delicious coffee has started us well. Hubby has gone to bed (works nights) and now I'm preparing to roast my pork with fresh beets, corn and taters. I'm also going to bake some apples and precook some pasta sauce for the coming week.
When I take the time to make Sunday a day of culinary joy, it creates a gorgeous aroma and vibe in the apartment and gets the creative juices flowing in other areas of my - Mind, Body and Soul - in preparation for another week.
I surprised myself by being so ready for this today, it's usually harder after a low week. It makes that extra hard effort I put in last night to prepare for today so much worth it, even though I felt crappy and expected to wake today feeling the same and have trouble getting up.
What do you do with your days off to rejuvenate and centre yourself?
