Autumn Sunday Mornings

Good Morning!

Happy Sunday! ¬†ūüôā

Autumn Sunday mornings (for me) means chill time with the family (not including the gym).

Howling winds woke me this morning; it sounded cold out there. ¬†SJ is cold (44 degrees) and to think that in a few hours, we’ll be on the football field. ¬†So you know I couldn’t wait to…

fire

Have my first official wood burning of the season!  Besides the warmth the fire brings, I also enjoy the crackling and wood popping.

Freshly cooked omelets were in order, so I put my chefs hat on for myself, hubby, and B’Dazzle.

veggies

An omelet isn’t the same for me without veggies. ¬†This one has spinach, mushrooms, fresh garlic, red, and orange peppers– oh and crushed peppers.

bread

Two slices of Ezekiel bread is a healthy source of carbs.

label1Flourless and low glycemic makes the bread appealing (to me).

finished omelet

My plate was meatless. ¬†Yummy! Hubby and B’Dazzle had sausage on their plate.

Because of the rain yesterday, B’Dazzle’s conference football game was rescheduled for today. ¬†While we’ll be dry, it is going to be COLD on the field today. ¬†I’ve got hand and toe warmers for B’Dazzle and any other player who needs or wants a pair. ¬†You bet, I’ll shove a pair of warmers in my gloves and boots.

After the game, we have left-overs and a delicious fresh crock pot full of Jambalaya.

The recipe is saved on my¬†¬†Pinterest¬†soup board and is courtesy of Abby at catsandcasseroles.blogspot.com. ¬†Thank you Abby! It’s easy to make and perfect for a day like today. ¬†After the game, I hope to do some catching up on much-needed blog time in front of the fireplace while grubbing on a big bowl of spicy and healthy Jambalaya. Mmm…

Have fun watching Sunday football and enjoy the day! ūüôā

 


Happy Days!

I had a slight setback on my #100HappyDays challenge, but, for me, happiness is a state of mind, so I will not let working and B’Dazzle’s football season allow me to give up. Lol!

Who says you can’t wear sun dresses in October? ¬†I’m still rockin mine and my Havana twists styled by my favorite salon owner, Victoria at KinHairitage! ¬†#100HappyDaysChallenge #Day38IMG_3153.JPGHubby surprised me with a pan of broiled turkey chops! ¬†Heeeey! ¬†The were delicious! ¬†They tasted like I cooked them. ¬†He’s a good student… I guess I taught him well! ¬†Lol!! ¬† #100HappyDaysChallenge #Day39

Thank God Tomorrow is Friday because I’m beat and still have to get to the football field. ¬†ūüôā

Very happy that I am in bed before nine. #100HappyDaysChallenge #100HappyDays4Lexa #Day27

I hope you had a fabulous day.  I did and am very grateful for my blessings.

Until next time. ¬†Chow! ¬†ūüôā


This Is How To Drink Tea

Last night it was chilly outside on the football field.  Tonight was chilly, but I was armed with two additional tops, including an oversized hoodie that kept me warm.

But what really warmed me inside and out and made me childishly happy was that finally, I got to use my Simply Better Tea, Tea Traveler today.  I brought mine from a tea shop in Smithville; however they can be purchased online.

So over tea bags, I have been wanting to return to what I knew as a kid. ¬†Sipping my mom’s and grandmother’s tea made from the root of a plant or fresh leaves, pulled straight from mama’s back yard. ¬†None of the grandkids knew that tea bags existed.

What’s so special about this traveler? It has a removable infuser, so you add the loose leaf tea of choice in first. ¬†Secure the infuser on top and pour boiling water in the traveler. ¬†Then simply enjoy freshly brewed organic (if you chose) ¬†tea! ¬† It’s potent but delish! ¬†The aroma is inviting and relaxing.

Today I chose the Turmeric Ginger.

tea

Although the two are said to have many health benefits, I picked this blend because I enjoy the bold and spicy flavor of both herbs.¬†¬†Oh it was wonderful!! ¬†The experience of the tea was a great distraction because I wasn’t happy to miss the gym today. Grrr… ¬†ūüė¶

Anyways, it’s bed time. ¬†Will talk to you again soon. ūüôā

Sweet dreams!
