A Green Monster


OK. So, again I’m uploading pictures of oddly-coloured drinks.
This one is healthier than the last one though.
And it was my dinner tonight.  Inspired by Angela and her green monsters!  It contained milk, a banana, lots of spinach and ice.
The mixing of milk and spinach sounded horrendous to me at first but it tastes surprisingly good. You can’t really taste the spinach, just the banana.
Lots of vitamins, iron, and antioxidants.

Yes, indeed a wild Friday night at my house…

Random Monday thoughts

  • I have a cold. My head feels heavy and I’ve been blowing my nose all day (charming, I know) But I’m getting better I think.
  • Yesterday I discovered that it’s not completely dark outside at 8am. It made me happy when I was walking to work just before 8 o’clock. (I hadn’t noticed this before as I’m normally not up around this time…) Spring and summer and bright summer nights are on their way.
  • I’m not taking any literature classes this semester and I strangely miss it. I’m in need of  some literature discussions! I might have to force my friends to start a reading group with me…
  • But not having to read literature for school means that I can read whatever I like and I started to read Anna Karenina this weekend. It has been on my “to read” list for a while now. I don’t know anything about the story and didn’t know what to expect. But I like what I’ve read so far, which is only about 100 pages. It’s all very russian and dramatic, lots of “oh”s and exclamation marks!

Die cold, die!

All day I’ve been feeling like I’m getting sick. Feels like I’m getting a sore throat, my nose is running and I’m just generally feeling  blah (that’s a word yes)
I decided to attack this thing and have been drinking apple cider vinegar (which is supposed to do wonders – let’s see about that) taking vitamins,  drinking green tea and cod liver oil. I hope it works!
Oh, yes. I bought a bottle of cod liver oil earlier this week. I haven’t had cod liver oil since I was a kid and the parents “made” me take it every morning.
I must admit, it doesn’t taste any better now than it did when I was a kid. But… the cod liver oil has high levels of Omega 3 which is apparently very good for you. So, I’m giving it a try. I’m such a sensible grown up person, you know… (hah!)
