Late Morning.

2 06 2008

Oh how I loved rolling out of bed at a decent hour of 7:45 AM instead of my usual 4:45 AM. High School starts so early for me (7:15) that I usually have to hit the gym at 5 to be able to get ready for school in time. I’m incredibly thankful for school being over and my nice, long, relaxing mornings. Now I can go to the gym or take a nice long run in the evening with the rest of my family instead of going at it alone in the early AM.

Today is also my last day at work! =D I’ve worked the entire school year and it has taught me to budget my money, take responsibility, time management, and a work ethic. I plan on taking all of those to Baylor with me in the fall. I finished up my valedictorian speech last night and I hope its really good.

If any of my few readers have a spare moment, I would LOVE for you to review the speech and make any suggestions on how to improve it. Just let me know and I’ll gladly e-mail it to you.

Today is going to run smoothly. I have to check in to my 2nd period class (because of exemptions) and then I’m headed over to WHOLE FOODS to buy some ingredients for dinner. It’s quite tasty-and I definitely can’t wait to show you. It’s going to be a pleasant surprise. Other than that, I have no requirements of me today except work. This is going to be a nice, relaxing Monday.

This morning I lazily made my way into the kitchen to make my breakfast. I made my typical multigrain hot cereal except for this time I added a pinch of dried cranberries along with the blueberries. It was delightfully tart+sweet and the cranberries plumped up in the hot water to give a nice chew. I had my usual hot tea on the side as well with a splash of vanilla soy. I am a creature of habit-but this blog will hopefully encourage me to try a plethora of new recipes.

These blueberries are gorgeous! They are plump, juicy, and very sweet. I just LOVE berry season. My mom gets these big clamshells of them from CostCo for a fraction of the price at other places. Strawberries are delicious too and she buys big clamshells of those as well. 😛 How I’m going to miss CostCo when I’m on my college budget. Haha. Alrighty, I’m off to take in the day. I hope everyone has a great Monday!
