More Back to Basics
I don’t know about you, but I feel basically rotten if I’m not regularly exercising outdoors. Inside is fine for certain activities (a pilates class, for instance) and for crummy-weather days. But on a weekly basis, if I don’t get out at least 2-3 times, my energy and mood suffer (just ask my family, eek).
And so I ventured forth this chilly afternoon, into the sunny (!) air for a brisk walk around beautiful Cedar Lake. You can see the cold in that pale blue, watery sky, brrr. But it felt great anyhow.
Back indoors, I pulled together the simplest of dinners (I’m a bit cooked/fooded out). Just egg salad, open-faced on toasted rye bread, with a warm roasted pepper, onion, and caper salad alongside.
To me, the best egg salad is easy on the mayo, generous with shallots, lemon juice, and dill. Yum. With hot tea for “dessert,” I’m properly fortified to head back out later for Nathan’s basketball game.
Just give me a seriously warm coat and heated car seats – oh yeah… Warm Bum, Happy Mum!
