The Comparison Game

The last two days have been – for lack of a better word – INSANE! 

Although I was only gone a week and didn’t have work or school to worry about missing, there is always a lot that needs to get caught up on after being gone.  Between unpacking, answering emails, doing 6 loads of laundry, going grocery shopping, doing returns at the mall, and running errands at Target and the bank, I now understand why my mom always dreaded taking our family on vacations when I was younger. Winking smile

I finally feel a little more caught up today, so hopefully I can manage take a relaxing weekend off!
 

Yesterday morning I decided to open up the Living Harvest Unsweetened Hempmilk that I had bought a few weeks ago and give it a try.  If you remember, I had tried the sweetened original a while back and definitely wasn’t a fan, but I figured it was still worth giving the unsweetened version a shot.

I tried it out on my cereal (Nature’s Path Whole O’s with an organic banana on the side) for breakfast.

The verdict?  I APPROVE!  I’ve never been one to like sweetened versions of any milk product, so I’m glad I gave the unsweetened a chance!  The “bitter” taste of the sweetened hempmilk was gone and replaced with a smooth, rich flavor.  Totally worth trying yourself!
  

I also have been on an Americano kick lately at Starbucks instead of my usual coffee (who am I???).  I actually really like the nutty taste and more full-bodied flavor to switch things up!

Yesterday I managed to walk 11 miles (one 6-mile walk in the afternoon and one 5-mile walk in the evening) and it felt AMAZING!  Walks are definitely what keep me sane and stress-free. 

On my walk in the afternoon, I happened to come by this dude who scared the crap out of me when he sauntered out of the woods. See him peeking out behind the tree in the first photo?

You know you’re in Wisconsin when you start seeing raccoons walking 5 feet from you, completely unafraid of your presence. Winking smile  I’ve seen quite a few raccoons in my day since I grew up living in the woods, but this was probably the closest I ever got to one in the wild!  I’ve been mere feet from black bears, deer, foxes, wolves, fishers, turkeys, and SO many more… I guess it just comes with the territory!

Have you ever gotten up close and personal with wildlife?

 

Thankfully today’s to-do list is much more manageable and I’m finally getting back into my regular routine.  I believe some tanning time with a good book is in order if the sun decides to peek out!
