It's Saturday morning. Let's settle in, have coffee and chat for a while!
Over Coffee...I would tell you how much I've enjoyed cooking with my crock pot recently. I found a recipe (I think on Coco's blog -- thanks Coco!) where you cover chicken breast with salsa. I've also used pork chops and both are delicious. Well, this week I was cooking chicken with pineapple salsa. I was so looking forward to this meal with brown rice, broccoli and glazed carrots. Yum! I get home and lift the lid for an aromatic whiff. What? Raw chicken? Crockpot on ... oh ... it's not plugged in. Geez.
|A good day -- only one finger affected!|
Over Coffee...I would explain how one thing I enjoy about summer is how much better my Raynaud's Syndrome is. For those of you not familiar, it is where your fingers (or toes) lose blood and become numb and useless. It is caused by cold temperatures or stress. I usually lose the sensation of my middle three fingers and wake them up by holding them under hot water.
The only trigger I have in summer is the grocery store aka Frozen World. Unfortunately, I visit Frozen World 2 or 3 times a week. I'm very fortunate this never happens during a run. My fingers may go numb from standing around before a cold race (or after I finish) but apparently the increased blood circulation while running keeps mine at bay. If I could only run through the grocery store at a nice 9:00 pace...
|Could a blackberry get any bigger?|
Over Coffee...I'd tell you I feel better about my running. I'm not so much in a funk any more. Yes, my speed is still slow and I expect it to remain that way during the heat and humidity of summer. But, I have more energy. I feel better. Well...except for my cranky right hip. Why is there always something? Could it be the result of too many Fitbit steps? Eek! I'm not even going there!
What would you tell me over coffee?
