Right Now

Drinking: I've had my first cup of coffee for the day and anticipate drinking water and herbal tea for the rest. Maybe one more cup of coffee if needed, as I am working longer hours at my place of employment this week.

Eating: I've had hot cereal with hemp seeds, cinnamon and maple syrup, and will shortly eat a piece of sourdough rye toast to complete my breakfast. Lunch is black-eyed peas with sweet potatoes, cauliflower and rice, plus mixed berries and a Peek Frean cookie for dessert. Dinner to be determined. I gained 4-5 pounds on my recent holiday and am trying to get back into the swing of healthy eating.

Reading: I completed four books in the last couple of weeks: As a Shield, A Penny for Your Thoughts, Life Without Limits, and Don't Give Up, Don't Give In. Currently reading Miracles from Heaven. See "What's On My Nook" for authors.

Watching: Nothing. I'm too busy working this week.

Listening: My local Christian radio station as I drive to and from work.

Creating: I'm supposed to be meeting with a critique partner Monday, so I have to get cracking on my submission.

Buying: After being away, I need to replenish the groceries. Son especially complains that "there's nothing to eat."

Anticipating: Losing the weight I gained on my journey! (And then some!)

What have y'all been up to in the last couple of weeks?


  1. hi Susan, I like how you're eating! Very interesting meals. I recently bought a rice cooker/steamer and have found that it is helping me prepare my food for work quickly and healthfully. I put in brown rice, then add veggies and tofu, herbs, coconut oil and tumeric to the steamer part. All ready in 25 minutes -- and it's enough for 2 people. I bought the 4 cup rice cooker after a friend started showing me what she could turn out in it.
    Anyway, I'll try your lunch soon.

  2. I can send you the actual recipe, if you like! Your meal sounds very healthy and appetizing as well; glad you're enjoying your new rice cooker!
