Friday Morning Vacation

I am beyond thrilled with my last minute decision to take the entire day off of work instead of working 5 hours in the morning and then driving back home (30 miles) before driving down to St. Louis!

 

I slept in well past my first patient, and I finally learned how to make flip pancakes!

I had time to make another loaf of Irish Soda Bread to take with us this weekend.

And then sat down to catch up on blog reading, emails, and tea drinking while my bread cooked.

A little after 10am, I pulled my bread out of the oven and headed outside for some fresh air and sunshine.  Both have been lacking this week!  I also just needed some quiet and alone time, and the path is always so peaceful!

With the all of the ice, snow, and rain these past few weeks, the path was a bit of a mess.  There was ice along some parts that needed to be walked over and a flood so bad that I would have needed a canoe to get across.  Running (and walking) along the trail, I felt calmer than I had all week!

I walked in the front door just after the start of the Indiana vs Illinois basketball game, and.sat down to watch the game with a shamrock shake.

Yea Right!  Itโ€™s just a kale, orange, mango green smoothie, which is super tasty!

I definitely need to have more Friday morning vacations in my life!
