Did you have a good Superbowl Sunday? Did you do anything special with friends or family? My day was spent like a normal day. No big Superbowl party for these Crums.
I slept great last night after having a bowl of yogurt, granola and berries and a side of trail mix. Maybe that combination creates a slumber inducing effect caused by happiness because it is becoming one of my favorite snacks that I crave. Do you ever crave simple foods that aren’t sweets? I crave classics like peanut butter sandwiches, trail mix, Greek yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. I am pretty sure I could live off of those things. Anyways, I slept great and when I woke up this morning I was ready to get my day started. I wrote my Morning Pages before heading out to the kitchen. For breakfast I had granola with berries (yes, again) and an egg and cheese sandwich. I also had a clementine and a chai latte. After finishing my puzzles I got started on another recipe for my client. I made a ginger carrot and potato soup and it smelled very flavorful. Then I got to work on creating a dessert that is gluten free and sugar free. That was challenging, but I think they turned out! I made peanut butter cookie banana “ice cream” sandwiches. The banana “ice cream” is a banana mixed with greek yogurt, vanilla and stevia. I think the recipe might need some tweaking, but I think it will still be yummy. It just might not be that pretty haha. Once I finished with the desserts I quickly fixed my lunch before I got ready to go to the barn. I had a sunflower butter sandwich, an apple, carrots and a strawberry banana Greek yogurt.
I had a great time at the barn! I rode Vinnie again and he was so good! I cantered the around the entire arena a few times with no cross-cantering (Vinnie used to swap his back lead whenever I would go down the straight away) and I was so pleased! I told Renee that I thought about trying a draw rein on Vinnie and then she made the suggestion of trying a German martingale with him and she asked if I wanted to go ahead and try it, so that is just what I did! Second direction I used the German martingale and Renee and Lena both agreed that he looked much better. Vinnie was just so good today! It made me so happy 🙂 He looks like such a goofball eating his hay.
When I got home I took advantage of the warm weather and did some more sanding. I still have more things to sand, but I got two pieces done today. I took a break between sanding the two pieces to have my snack of Triscuits and trail mix. I sanded up all the way to the Superbowl!
A little before halftime my dad and I got started on making dinner. We quickly put together individual taco “pizzas” and they were so good! We also made some buffalo chicken and a queso dip, but I wasn’t hungry enough for them. I think I will use the leftover buffalo chicken tomorrow for my lunch though!
