Low Key Heaven


I was up early this morning and feeling more adventurous for breakfast than I normally am. I whipped up a batch of gluten-free lemon & blueberry waffles! They were pretty good, but not enough lemon. If I make them again, I'll definitely add more zest or even extract.

I had a bunch of cherry tomatoes and some baked beans for lunch. Not gourmet, to be sure.

For dinner though I made up a spinach salad with a homemade orange/dijon dressing (fresh squeezed OJ, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and blood orange infused olive oil) as well as a white bean, kale, and potato soup.


Around lunchtime, I did another yoga class from YogaGlo. I have to say, I really am digging this site. I opted for the restorative class and it felt great.

A couple hours later, I decided to go out for a run. It was an awful run (I hate it when that happens). I just couldn't get my legs under me and lost all energy. I realized I hadn't eaten in about 9 hours, so I imagine that had something to do with it. I also got caught in the rain, but that wasn't so bad!


It's been a quiet day. Other than my run, I was home all day, and spent most of it cooking, reading, monitoring our plethora of pets, or watching movies with my family. It was a pretty low key weekend, but that's needed once in awhile! It's A's last weekend at home, and that just feels so strange.

She still doesn't know who her roommate will be – the girl she was assigned changed residence halls, so A's pretty much in the dark. Quite frankly, A is trying to change too, but it's not likely. Her dorm is on the medical college's campus – which is a couple miles from the main campus where all her classes are.

As for now, it's time to get everything prepped for the morning! Clothes to iron, lunches to make, and sleep to have!

Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

I am a 45 yo busy career single mom and doctoral student attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free(ish) vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

  1. Definitely get A’s resident hall changed! The medical college side is a ghost town after 8pm (no grocery stores or any places for activities) and not to scare ya mom, but a bit shady as well. The main campus has all the shops/restaurants/student centers and is well lit and stays active (lots of security roaming around, lots of students hanging out).

    1. well…ya scared me! They basically told her there’s very little chance she can get changed. Maybe after a week or so – if a student failed to show up for classes – but otherwise she’s stuck at least her first semester, and maybe her entire freshman year. Ugh. It’s weird, because several of the art students are in that hall.
