Good Monday morning everyone. The cold air has returned, and I am still debating whether or not I should go to class. My back has been acting up again, and this would be a two hour bus ride, 8 block walk, and then dance and yoga. Sitting isn't easy right now so I don't know how I would manage sitting for the meditation on a hard chair. Sent for a special pillow which should arrive this week.
Had a nice weekend. Spent a lot of time on Saturday in the kitchen. Made a pot of chili and some sausages for hubby. Put them both in the freezer for later use. For myself I made two soups. Both were so simple and quick to make.
Black bean soup--one large 1 lb 13 oz can of black beans, carrots, celery, corn, onions, peppers,
cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, tomato sauce, and
sodium free chicken broth
version of Tuscan Bean Soup.--one large 1 lb 13 oz can of cannelli
beans, carrots, celery, 1 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with green chili,
onions, sweet pepper, rosemary, garlic, chopped kale (frozen), red
pepper flakes, sodium free chicken broth, and black pepper. I felt like
adding a bacon taste but since I don't eat bacon due to sodium I added a
few bacon bits.
Went to church yesterday morning and then picked up a few fruits on the way home. Heard the weather was not going to be so good Monday and Tuesday, and I wanted to have plenty of healthy snacks on hand.
Tinnitis. Don't know if I mentioned it before, but for the past three weeks I've been suffering with it. It's not so bad in the day because I'm either busy or watching television and the ringing is drowned out. But at night when I go to bed? It's so annoying. I've been cleaning my ears, using a homeopathic formula, and taking an Aleve pm to help me sleep, but it's still there. Anybody else suffer from this? They say there is no cure. That sometimes it might go away on its own. I pray it does.
Have a wonderful day.
