Friday, August 1


TGIF.  Though I'm not quit sure why I'm getting too excited- I work tomorrow!  But it's only until noon, so I can handle it.   And I'll drive past the Hazen Flea Market on the way home, so that's another perk.  Work, work.  Seriously overrated.

On a completely different note, we've got blueberries!   Thus far, we've picked a few sour ones here and there.  These last few days?  Tons!  Blue ones!  Sweet ones!  Molly loves to help pick, and honestly, she's getting pretty good, but the problem lies in her quick eating.  So it'll be her and I- face to face at the blueberry bush.  Who am I kidding?  I just need enough for these muffins and maybe a few for pancakes.  She can have the rest ;)

I think this article hits home, and it's kind of scary at the same time.  I've never considered myself a "creative", but I am familiar with the inability to sit quietly- without a book, without my phone, just alone with my thoughts.  I'm not sure what this holds for our generation, except that I know Albert Einstein was a thinker, and probably had a lot of time alone with his thoughts.  So it's somewhat unsettling...

I got a chuckle out of this article, especially the tip about strep throat.  I'm not kidding, I've seriously treated an identical case.

And I'm growing more and more proud of my ability to make homemade macaroni and cheese.  Why I've ever made it from a box (well obv, the ease)- well I won't make it from a box again!  I used the PW recipe- it was easy, cheesy, and delicious. 

The truth is, earlier that day, I engulfed an entire sandwich from Arby's (seriously, that bread), so I was trying to go carb free for dinner. But when it started raining, and Molly kept napping, the baby was begging me to make it.  So I did.  And it was amazing.  Plus I had it for dinner again yesterday, and it was just as good!  I think my glucose test is coming up in the next few weeks, so I'm about to get serious about carb limiting.  Well, I'm going to try! ;)

Enjoy this weekend, and take some time to think with your own thoughts!
