Feeling a Little Better

I woke up feeling a bit better yesterday. My stomach felt pretty normal to start with so I braved a bowl of shredded wheat. I topped it with milk, banana, walnuts, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I wasn’t able to finish the bowl but I did get most of it down with no problems.

The staff lunch sounded pretty bland so I decided to give it a shot. It was chicken and cabbage with bread and a salad. I brought the plate to my stomach and my stomach flipped after one bite. I ended up only eating the bread, in fact, I went back for a couple more pieces.

A little later, the chef was in a baking mood and surprised me with some star anise scones atop fresh whipped cream and honey. These were delightful but my stomach wasn’t game for eating too much so I only had two of them.

Finally, in the late afternoon, I got a food craving. I actually wanted food and so did my stomach. Now, I’m not talking a gourmet meal or anything but I was hungry. I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich! So, once I was home from work, I made myself a grilled cheese on white bread along with a glass of grape juice. The one sandwich didn’t do it, so I actually had two.

I was feeling pretty wiped out so after dinner, I went to bed. I must say, today, I am feeling much better!

Thought Part Two: Thanks to everyone who commented about the blogroll. I’ve been thinking of taking mine in a new direction but first, I guess I have to figure out what my direction is. Once I discovered google reader, I kind of left my blogroll alone unless someone asked me to be added or if I specifically noticed being on someones roll. So, at this point,Β  my blogroll is a mish mosh of blogs I read, reciprocal links and blogs I thought I loved and now I don’t actually read anymore. I think having the blogroll is fun and, of course, it increases traffic (probably not by much πŸ™‚ ) for the people who are on it. So, over the next few days, I will be changing my blogroll to be just a list of links of blogs and sitesΒ I actually read and reciprocal links. I’m also considering creating a page for it rather than have it running down the side. What does everyone think?

  10. Glad to hear you are feeling better… stay positive. Food looks great as do the pictures.

    thanks for sharing

  11. i noticed the same thing, once i realized how awesome google reader is, i’ve neglected the links on my blog… but i think the separate page is a good idea in case people are interested. That grilled cheese looks like it would be yummy in my tummy, too;-) Hope it continues to feel better!! (your stomach, that is!) have a great weekend!

  12. So glad you’re doing better!
    I definitely like the separate page for links idea… but you knew that already!

  13. I had already been checking out your blog, Christie! It’s amazing with all of the pictures you include of the foods you eat. Do you just carry a camera around with you and use it for documentation? They make me hungry!
    Glad we found each other!

  14. Bonnie, thanks for commenting! I do, in fact, carry a camera around with me every where I go. There are a few situations that are not appropriate for this but mostly, it isn’t a big deal.

  15. Glad to hear you are feeling better – grilled cheese is yum!

  16. I’m glad you’re feeling better – those scones look absolutely incredible!

    I like your idea for the blogroll – I missed out on commenting yesterday but basically mine is a combination of blogs I read and blogs that I’ve reciprocated because they put my blog on their roll. So I think doing it that way or creating a new page just for blogs you enjoy are both great ideas!!

    Have a lovely weekend, Christie πŸ™‚

  17. I can’t get over the things the chef at your work cooks for you! You’re so lucky.

    Also, I think your idea for a blogroll is great! Do what you’re comfortable with!
