This was the aftermath of the 24-hour Oscar-nominated best pictures marathon. This was a short day.
I went to bed around 8 a.m. and woke up around 2:30 p.m. because I knew I had to get to the grocery store for the week’s meals. I had a fruit plate of berries, watermelon, and apple for breakfast, and got started with the day.
In DC, we can’t handle snow well. We freak out when snow is in the forecast and run off to the grocery store to buy milk, toilet paper, and bread in bulk. Unfortunately, the weather prediction for tomorrow brought out hoards of DC’s apocalytes, and what would have been a pleasant little afternoon grocery excursion turned into a war zone – dodging carts in aisles like landmines and racing to grab the last red bell peppers like they were being rationed. One pleasant interaction involved a guy who looked at my cart spilling over and commented, “that is an admirable amount of produce.” And indeed it was.
Since I started my day so late and spent most of it at the grocery store, I only had time for two meals today – breakfast and lunch (lest I have dinner at 1 a.m. No thanks). Lunch was the usual microgreens salad and something new! We made a delicious hearty vegetable-miso soup, which was miso soup with lots of vegetables like broccoli, carrots, garlic, ginger, and onions. It was great! Sorry, no dinner. No time.
