Well, this week has not been good and I am feeling quite the grump, but I am posting this in an attempt to be thankful...
1. Quiche. Yep. Eggs. I'm sick. have been stuck in bed since Tuesday. The doctor tested me for strep and the flu and said they both "looked negative but were not 100%" so she put me on a Z-pac to see if that would do anything. I don't think it is, but I'll finish up the pills and call back if I'm still in bad shape on Monday. I have this (maybe irrational??) fear that I have mono/epstein barr again and that throws me into some serious fear/depression considering that is what launched me into all my chronic illnesses 3 years ago.
this recipe using fresh spinach, mushrooms, red onions, and a bit of bacon. Sauteed the veggies until they were soft, then threw them in the pie shell, mixed them with some cheese, topped w/the egg mixture and baked for about 35 minutes. Easy. Delicious. Comforting.
2. Lovely weather. I was able to open the windows in the bedroom on Tuesday or Wednesday and get a nice breeze/hear the birds chirping. It lifted my spirits. :)
3. Bolthouse Farms C-boost juice. Now, I don't really believe that it is helping me to be honest...but this 100% juice is wonderful and should help your immune system...if you're not me that is...
5. Disney/Pixar movies with dogs. In the past few weeks hubs has really been trying to encourage and love on me while I've been feeling so miserable. Last week we watched Up and this week we watched Bolt...both made us cry so much! Of course Up has the marriage aspect, but we just have a soft spot for pups...and Butchy has been very interested in both movies--her ears perk up when the dogs on screen bark and sometimes she growls at the bad guys! Hilarious.
What has brought a smile to your face this week?
