Yesterday was lovely—I didn’t even know my aunt had a pool, but she does, and it was open, and it was so nice to sit in the sun (wearing sunscreen, of course) and dip my feet in the water. There was plenty of good food, lots to talk about, and most importantly, my mom seemed to have a good time.

And now it’s back to the Monday grind. I have to say, though, I actually look forward to going in every day for this rotation. That’s not to say my body doesn’t need a little fuel to get going. Making breakfast ahead of time has been a sanity-saver the past few months. This morning I got to enjoy steel cut oats with chia seeds, flax, chopped apple and lots of cinnamon, ginger and cloves, topped with apple sauce and peanut butter. Great way to start the week.
