A quiet day with some reassurance.
I think it doesn’t matter how old you get, your mom is still your mom. However, as the only single woman at work, I seem to have a multitude of moms and everyone of them has been worrying about me and telling me to go to the doctor. Today I gave in and did just that.
I got told that yes I have a horrific cold and that it’s probably a continuation of the one I had in December:( However, I also got told that my ears aren’t infected ( I’ve had ear problems my whole life so when they aren’t normal even I get worried), and that as long as I got lots of rest there was no reason I couldn’t go back to exercising😀. I also got given some kid decongestant so I’ll be more comfortable at work:). In the past I’ve had trouble with adult medications. Overall, I’m happy with my results. I think the no infections put my mind at rest most!
I tried making crackers today for the first time! There were called In A Pinch Polenta Crackers in my Allergy Free Cook Bakes Bread Recipe book. It was super easy! Bring two cups of water with 1.25tsp of salt to a boil, stir in one cup of corn meal until it’s thick like porridge ( I think mine was too thick so I’ll try adding more water next time), then turn off the heat and add 2tbsp oil, and spices. I added 1/8tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp chili and 1/8 tsp garlic. Spread the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. They were so yummy and will make a good after school snack tomorrow:)
I had thought that making crackers would be so difficult and they really weren’t! One thing I did learn though was that I should have scored them as the recipe called for as then maybe I would have gotten nice, uniform crackers.
This evening I got back to exercising. I adapted this workout I read on the Vicki Lynn Fitness blog this morning. I didn’t want to kill myself so I toned it down a bit, but it still felt like a good workout and it certainly felt good to move again. I think my body also got a workout from my coughing fit halfway through too🤣
I have spent most of the day quietly reading another book from NetGalley which I should be able to tell you about tomorrow night as I’m off to finish reading it😂
I am looking for a suggestion of a new classic to listen to on Librivox if anyone has one:)
