Mondays are hard, but they are made considerably more palatable by the usual beginning-of-the-week food explosion at work.
I love that conference room table 😀
That is the sight that greeted me when I walked into my 9:30 meeting on Monday morning. Rosalie and Nydia wanted our meeting to have a celebratory aspect, and I was happy to oblige by eating the decorations. I’d already had breakfast, but I figured I might as well have an early lunch part 1!
I had two giant bowls of fruit like this:
Plus the half apple that didn’t make it into my fruit bowl(s), topped with a babybel cheese:
And half of a heated banana walnut muffin with peanut butter:
The pb got all melty and gooey and stick-to-my-mouthy … and I wanted to have 30 more halves like this. But I did not listen to that craving because this was also on the conference room table:
Jessica came back from her Disneyworld vacation and brought the office a bag of Goofy taffy. And it was a health-conscious bag, believe it or not:
The bag claimed easy portion control, so I threw caution to the wind and had at least twice what you see here:
(With the Tinkerbell notepad that Jessica also brought back for me :-D)
Mildred saved the day from sugar temporarily when she gave me the rest of her lunch salad with chicken and avocado:
I added the CSA broccoli I had brought for a snack with some yogurt-mango chutney dressing:
Plus half of a mini cinnamon bun left from the morning meeting:
And that was lunch part 2.
When I got back from my afternoon visits, Deborah instantly handed me 1/4 of the chocolate mint cupcake she had gotten from the advocacy department downstairs:
Mmmmm, Deborah definitely knows how to select a cupcake.
When I opened my email, I saw that Pura had sent out an alert that there were still tons of excess donated goodies downstairs, so I ran down and took up a collection that included a cinnamon muffin, two cream cheese frosted carrot cupcakes, two slices of lemon-iced angel food cake, and a pb&j crumb square 😛
I ate some crumbs and packed the rest up for home, where I promptly chopped them all up into small pieces and added them to my freezer bag … and ate some more crumbs 😛
What is the hardest day of your week, and what makes it easier?
