Thanks to everyone for the well wishes for DD. She is feeling better today although it got quite rough last night. Her temp was up to 103* (39.4F) for most of the day and I’m not gonna lie…I was starting to freak out a bit! The medication she has to take has been upsetting her tummy, but she’s been able to keep it down today which is a plus. Right now it’s mainly her throat and the bad cough that are bothering her most.
I was stuffed after this!
Once back home I got some laundry going. Seeing as I’ll be home until Monday I figure it’s a good time to get caught up on all things involving the house. I’m hoping that the powers that be at work allow my supervisor to bring me a work laptop so I can get some stuff done from home. I also did some blog reading with some joe; And I made a Vegan Banana Nut Carob Bread;

While the goods were in the oven I got to work prepping the last 2 butternut squash from my garden. One went into a Ziploc for use later this week; And the other got tossed with 1 tbsp olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, cinnamon and some lime juice and had it’s turn in the oven once the bread came out.
After lunch I did some Christmas shopping online. I found a few items that haven’t been stocked in the stores I’ve checked so that was awesome. Then I made a big tea and settled in with the new Clean Eating magazine.
I love this mag. I put it on my Christmas list so I hope my hubby gets me the subscription! :D
Dinner tonight was Rachael Ray’s Taco Stoup. I got a little sneaky and added a 1/2 cup of quinoa in the pot!
Well, I;m outta here for tonight. Before I go I wanted to let everyone know that CCK has one helluva a great giveaway going on at her blog! If you’re feeling a little (coco)nutty, click right here!
Bye for now!!
