Monday’s almost over and I’m still in my PJ’s. It’s like that on most Monday’s. And right now, my mind is on shoes. I’m anxiously obsessing and lusting over my next purchase. Those green Charlotte Olympia’s have me vexed. So damn sexy. Like ridicously, insanely what I need in my life right now. The color is intoxicating.
Instead, I should be thinking of the piled amount of overdue work not to mention the dire need to conjure up a trick to steal back my mojo.
A furry is happening over here. Traveling twice this week, in and out of the country, Mexico to be exact, which means I’m spazzed out. I’ve not even unpacked from my trip to LA last month. That’s how insane it’s been. And now I have to unpack just to pack again. But, I have to eat during all of this madness. I need energy to keep it movin’ but I don’t have time to cook.
And, really don’t feel like it because that means doing dishes. Which is the bain of my existence. So, as I sit and ponder my doings and obligatory cleanup and organization for the next two days, I realized I hadn’t eaten and needed some fuel.
The stomach was growling and the only thing I could think of was blueberries. Perhaps, it was because I just posted a picture on Facebook of a blueberry flan I made earlier this year. Since the harvest has been incredible this year, I’ve stocked up and made a crazy amount of high anti-oxidant goodies. I’ve been obsessed. Flan, ice cream and jam (which I didn’t blog about), a divine margarita and other delectables.
Just slightly obsessed.
The obsession probably caused thoughts of hunger. I was starving. What better time and ingredient to make something super fast. In the last 30 minutes, I made a beeline for my kitchen and stared at my freezer, pantry, countertop and fridge. The freezer spoke to me the most, with 5 jewel cases of frozen blueberrries staring at me.
The easiest, fastest and sweetest thing I could think of was a smoothie of some sort. I had frozen strawberries left over from a client’s party I recently did. That made it in the processor. And so did some maple peanut butter– out-the-box knocker, as per usual.
For 6 o’clock, the smoothie satiated and offered what I needed it to. Full of healthy properties, packed with antioxidants, a good dose of protein and sweet enough to keep me from making a run for the store for chocolate. Not to mention the perfect distraction from those things that are painfully boring me right now.
The MOJO is slowly coming back, though. Thanks to shoe and blueberry obsessions. And my upcoming trip to Mexico! I’ll share my next shoe purchase as soon as I scoop them up!
For now, sip this lovelies!
