Not as many pictures as normal, but there are a few! I was out of town for work to support a project, so didn’t always get my green smoothies – but I did typically have a breakfast salad from the Whole Foods bar on my way into work in the mornings!
One quick recipe for a simple mid-exam meal! When I’m really low on free time, I have to admit that I get even more grateful for having pretty much every kitchen appliance out there. This one was a simple rice cooker dish. Throw it all in and then eat when it’s done!
- 1 cup rice (doesn’t matter the type – I wanted brown, but am apparently out and used Arborio instead)
- 1 can lite coconut milk
- 1 tbsp. ground ginger root
- 2 tbsp. red Thai curry powder (here’s the one I use)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 3-4 cups whatever frozen veg you have (today, I used peas and green beans)
- 1 can drained and rinsed chickpeas
I went for a few runs, a bike ride, an online yoga class in my hotel room, and golf!
Yes – it was the once a year charity golf event! Both D and I want to actually play regularly, but I need to graduate first. There’s so little free time as it is, so starting something new just isn’t in the cards for me. Still – we had a blast (playing with our usual couple!) and I was literally sore for days!
Big surprise – it’s been a wild week and a half!
First off, it’s Term 4 (of 6) exam time from Oct 7-22, so if possible, I’m even more head down and buried in my studies. This also means I only have 2 terms left!! WOO. I have 5 courses per term, and each course typically has a 5 hr. exam. There was an exception with one being a bit shorter.
Last Friday was golf, so that was an all day event. Saturday morning I hit the road for work. I got to see JN twice and have dinner with EA the night I arrived! They’re both classmates.
Work took up all day every day until I went home.
Oh – and there was that pesky hurricane. D’s car got water in the engine and my entire neighborhood was flooded. D and the kids handled it all very well while I was dry up in the mountains.
Friday night (last night) was working on a group submission for one final (which also incorporated a significant amount of French wine, puppies, and a fire pit).
Today I took 10 hours worth of exams. I’m surprisingly NOT as brain dead as I thought I would – though I am going to head to bed soon!
Tomorrow I’m taking what I think may be my toughest exam. I doubt I’ll sit for more than one, so I will take my remaining final Monday night. It gets me done 5 days early (which is nice so I can start to prep for next term), but mainly my goal is to not have any exams hanging over my head come my birthday on Wednesday,
Other than that – typical pics of cats, Kuma, the Morning Pictures, and any other random pics snapped!
