Blogging makes me happy. Absolutely juvenile as it sounds, updating my blog makes me feel accomplished so maybe I should do it more often 🙂 Of course, I must keep it in perspective and make sure I’m not spending hours on the computer.
Today is a cloudy Autumn day. But I love it! I’m wearing long sleeves, socks, AND a scarf in the house and I’ve had to go back and forth between closing windows and opening them up again. I love the cold breeze that flows in when the windows are open! Its 5pm now and its quite dark outside. The days are definitely shorter and I can’t help but get so excited. I know I said it before, but I love Autumn!
For some reason I’m feeling pretty relaxed and organized today. I wonder if it has anything to do with everything smelling like Lavender! I spilt Lavender Oil last night as I was giving Motozo a massage. At the time I thought “CRAP!” oil all over the sheets, but now that the sheet is clean, dry and still smelling like lavender I’m happy we had a little spill. My hands and almost everything smells like lavender….ahhh……maybe I should buy myself a lavender plant.
Lilia, do you know this brand? One of my yoga students bought it for me when she took a trip to Australia. I’d like to go visit this shop when we visit there! Which reminds me, I haven’t done any research on Australian Open like I should have weeks ago! I’m making a list of things to do ASAP!
Today I whipped up a snack that was so good and simple I just have to post it!
Two ingredients I’m sure everyone has in their fridge.
Diced up the apple, threw it into the food processor, and processed until coarsely chopped.
Added the large banana, dash of nutmeg, and lots of cinnamon! I LOVE CINNAMON!
Processed everything until sort of pudding like, but not completely smooth.
Sprinkled more Cinnamon on top. Mmmmm…yum! Apple and cinnamon…nothing gets more Autumn like then that.
Certainly nothing special and most people would probably consider this baby food, but you can always make some adjustments to give it more texture. Some optional add ins could be: Walnuts, vanilla extract, raisins etc. Endless options to have fun with!
Since this blog is becoming more about food then running, I’d just like to mention now that I am still running. Not that I think Lilia (my faithful and only reader hehe) cares. So I’m really just saying this for myself.
In fact this weekend I plan to do a long run around the Yamanote Line with my running club. I probably will only make it half way around which will give me 20k or so, but that’s pretty good for me right now 🙂
Right then, back to studying.
