“Part of Santa’s Complete Breakfast”

A sketch I just barely, slightly started during school today! : )

Maybe the awkwardly missing second eye suggests that it’s a teeny bit too soon to share….?

Still, I’d just like to start talking more about what I’ve been drawing! Even if it’s only in little bits and pieces and scraps, like this.

Then, WIAW!! Again, a friendly get-together of what I’ve eaten the past few days. I cooked a huge-normous batch of brown rice on Sunday, so there’s a bit of a pattern!

Brown rice, avocado, mushrooms (very local – grown about thirty minutes away!), broccoli, SprouTofu + herbs & sea salt.

Siggi’s – just plain!

Brown rice, edamame, goat cheese, spring greenies, broccoli & carrots + lemon zest, s&p.

Peppermint + gingerbread oatmeal! 1/2 cup (dry) oats, with molasses, walnuts, ginger/cinnamon/cloves, crushed gingerbread candy-cane, kefir, and a banana.

…Best-Breakfast Award for this week. : ) Santa-approved, too!

Brown rice, sauteed tofu + veggies.

Romaine, out-of-season strawberries (ah!), olive oil, raw honey. Little and simple!

Casting for drama club’s multi-show show was released today! I’m going to be playing Rebecca Nurse in Crucible, and a little extra role in Titanic. : ) I did a search, and found out that Rebecca Nurse was a real woman, actually accused of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials! Should make for some super fun character research. : )

Have a beautiful Wednesday evening! (Mine will be spent prepping for three tests tomorrow – ahhh!)

Sugary Soap Opera: Episode Two

An update from last Wednesday’s dramatic episode: my oven still isn’t fixed. 😦 Well, now, my parents have just decided it’s better to install a new one. I’ve made one batch of “no-bake” cookies this past week, but…it just wasn’t the same!

So, let’s let some positivity shine in – WIAW!! A smattering of what I’ve eaten the last few days! 🙂

(I think cinnamon and bread were the theme this week!!)

Ezekiel English muffin…one half with chocolate-hazelnut butter, Wegman’s Fall Harvest cereal, coconut, and oats – the other, same, except with pumpkin instead of the choco-hazelnut spread (pear + cinnamon on the side!) :

Sandwich with hummus, SprouTofu savory baked tofu, and spring greens:

Sweet tater topped with yoghurt + cinnamon, broccoli with olive oil, and cinnamon tofu:

“Platter” of an egg + bread, carrots with Justin’s maple almond butter, sliced apple with cinnamon, and Siggi’s vanilla skyr:

PB&J oats with pumpy-kin and milk:

“Amy’s” frozen pasta shells…my “lazy” dinner! 🙂 :

Pear + cinnamon:

Teeny salad of butter lettuce + spring greens, with goat cheese, raisins, olive oil, and sea salt:

Bread smeared with hummus, egg + paprika, and Brussels sprouts:

…And a happy WIAW to all!

Mental Race


Did NOT go very good!!

Nerves beat me up too badly before the race. My head hurt and my stomach was turning…not great physical circumstances to be running under!

I’m upset with my time, but I know I need to move past it. Still, it frustrates me–it was an easy course, and I wish I had taken a more full advantage of that! Feeling as “yuck” as I did, I didn’t even have the motivation to push myself…so, I let myself stay way too comfortable (pace-wise!) for the entire race.

I ended up running a 23:28. I really believe I could have ran at least a 21:30; in fact, a girl on my team who I’ve ran slightly faster times than for half of our races ran a 21:07. Really, I wish I could have been as confident as she had been–for me, so much of this was a mental race. And, unfortunately, I’m a little slow in that area!!

But; all is done! I need to move on. One more week in the season–wow, districts on Friday?! After running with the team for four months, it doesn’t even feel real that it’s ending at the end of this week. Hopefully, that’ll give me the motivation to push myself as hard as I can manage this week, and to kill districts. Last week…last race! No reason not to use off all the energy that’s left in me!

And, my Mother promised to let me get my first professional massage done the day after districts. 😉 Ahah, okay, now that is where I’ll be looking to for my strongest bursts of motivation!!

Anywho, dinner…

Ezekiel English muffin with organic cheese + hummus…

Kitty cup ‘o edamame…

And, chayote squash with apple cider vinegar + sea salt, pepper, and dried thyme.

Goodbye and good-night!! 🙂
