Life can get pretty monotonous over here at my place. Winter time is especially uneventful because we don’t get outside as much as we do the rest of the year.
Needless to say, I get bored. When this happens, I seek out things to entertain myself and add spice to my life.
If it’s not finding a new book or blog to read, it’s finding a new series to watch via Netflix. If it’s not trying out a new product like Scentsy candles for the house, it’s something else.
Take for example, what happened when the kids and I were sick for two weeks …
Hubby brought home a new tea for me. It’s Acai Berry & Mango. It’s really good and it helped to cheer me up and make me feel better while I was nursing myself back to health. Since I only drink tea when I’m sick, I felt the need to find a way I could continue to drink this fab tea once I was all healthy again. So I decided to try it cold.
Guess what? It’s awesome! I have such a difficult time drinking enough water in a day. Drinking Acai Berry & Mango tea cold makes consuming my eight glasses of water a day all the more easier. I like things that make living my life easier.
Then, hubby brought home Quinoa and said, “Let’s try it and see how we like it”. Not knowing a thing about the stuff or about how one would cook it, I turned to Pinterest.
Wow! There I found so many recipes for Quinoa and decided to try one. Guess what? It was delish. We are now making Quinoa a regular part of our weekly menu even if the kids won’t touch the stuff. You can’t win them all.
A few days ago, hubby brought home a few avocados and left them out on the counter. While he was at work, I cut one open and sliced it into cubes. I toasted some bread, layered it with brussel sprouts, topped it with avocado and tomato cubes and then salt and peppered the whole thing.
Can you say yum? Would never have thought to make such a sandwich had husband not brought home the avocados. Something new to add to my lunch menu. Win, win!
Although none of the above mentioned items really make my life super exciting or eventful, they do make it different and add change to the every day.
A girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do to keep things interesting.
We can’t just blog every day.
What kinds of things add spice to your life?
