job hunt.. that is. I have been looking for a good job in Charlotte to occupy my time before I start my studies again, and unfortunately I have had no such luck! I have a fantastic job in Tulsa for when Hans is job training in Europe but I would like to find a job here for when we get back to Charlotte. Ah, well.. I think I will probably have to end up signing with a temp agency. Why am I worrying about this when I won’t be in Charlotte until after Christmas? I don’t know.. haha I guess I am just that typical type A personality.
Yesterday was a gloomy day in Charlotte but I am not complaining! I actually enjoy it as a change up from the normal warm and sunny. The cloudy weather reminds of me of Sweden too *which I hated when I lived there. The grass is always greener. I made a batch of my homemade granola bars for Hans yesterday. They smelled so good! I am still tweaking the recipe but I will post it as soon as I think it’s blog ready!
I had an awesome snack yesterday afternoon before my daily hike. TJ’s pomegranate Greek yogurt with 1 tbsp of Udi’s granola and a few dark chocolate chips for.. ya know, a boost of anti-oxidants, lol.
I still haven’t been myself these last few days. I don’t know what’s wrong. My tummy has just felt ‘off’. If that makes any sense? This yogurt snack definitely helped a lot. I had a lovely hike yesterday, I missed the rain by about 10 minutes. Sweet!
I had a low key dinner last night of Dakota bread, cottage cheese and avocado slices with a side of okra. I used about 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 of an avocado. I find it hilarious that my toppings are thicker than my bread 😉
We were supposed to have one of our Swedish staple dinners last night- toast and shrimp. But, after peeling all that damn shrimp I just couldn’t stomach it.
I have been on a pumpkin kick lately! Pumpkin oat bran, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin yogurt and now… pumpkin breakfast cookie!! I think I am just excited to celebrate Halloween!!!
My cookie contained: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 banana, a few spoonfuls of pumpkin, 1 tsp maple syrup, cinnamon and almond butter. Fav breakfast cookie so far!
And now, I am off to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. Yipppeeee!
Are you dressing up for Halloween? I definitely am after living in Sweden and missing the holiday terribly for 2 years. I just haven’t decided what yet?? Hhmm…
