Comfort in the Cold

I was scheduled to go for yet another visit to my orthopedist this morning; but, I woke up to the photo you see at the top of the page. My plans changed.

Just kidding. What I really woke up to was this:20170106_092740

But I live in Nashville where we have no snow removal equipment; so, it’s essentially the same thing. Change of plans.

On a morning like this, what I would have done last month would have been to grab some chips, leftover pizza, leftover chicken or whatever else wasn’t nailed down and park in front of the computer to watch a movie or crawl back in bed with a book. This morning was a little different. I had a wonderful bowl of cherry amaretto oats and a cup of apricot amaretto tea. I’ll be cooking more nutritious, whole-food, plant-based meals to put in the freezer and I’ll be hanging out with all the dogs and cats currently sucking up all the oxygen in my house.

It’s going to be a good day, remembering to find comfort in places other than in sleep and in the freezer section.
