Day 162

Thanks to Sayre, my house was filled with the most wonderful smell this morning. Sayre shared in a recent comment that she liked her oatmeal with applesauce. I though that was a nice idea, but I didn't have any applesauce. I did have apples though. Sooooo I peeled one, cut it up and boiled it in half a cup of water, with a cinnamon stick and some raisins. Before long the house was filled with the most divine smell ... definitely the smell you want to have on a cold grey winter morning. Once the water had boiled out, I added a tablespoon of agave, removed the cinnamon stick and placed the combo on top of my oatmeal. Then I poured my soymilk over this. Yummmmmy!!!

Notice I've been getting my 8 cups of water over the past few days. I changed my strategy with the water. I found a bottle that holds just about 64oz and I fill that in the morning and then consume it through out the day, taking it with me when I'm going to be out all day. When I finish the bottle, I know I've met my quota for the day. This has been working out so much better for me than trying to keep track of glasses throughout the day.
