A Day Of Rest?
Whoa, Nelly I had a busy day! It sure was not a day of rest!
It started off with photographing a dessert I made. I have a great recipe coming up in the next post, but I can’t post it for another 12 hours or so. You’ll understand why when I publish it.
Ingredients and dirty dishes everywhere. Fun.
After the massive photography and kitchen cleanup session, I ventured to TJ’s.
They had full size watermelon for $3.49 each
Normally I don’t buy full size watermelon. I prefer the mini since I don’t use them up that fast. I am only feeding three, not a football team.
But I figured I could freeze the extra for watermelon smoothies!
Adding some frozen watermelon chunks into the Taste of the Tropics Smoothie sounds like a good idea to me.
And I also saw these gorgeous sunflowers in front of TJ’s
I posted the picture to my Instagram <–love.it.so.much.
And for all the hummus, dip, and salsa fiends, these pictures are for you:
Wall of Dips
Not to be confused with the Wall of Nuts
Or you could just make your own Sweet Corn Salsa with Mango, Lime, Red Pepper
And my favorite section of the store: the baking area! Well, it ties with the coffee section
Love their cocoa powder, chocolate chips, caramel sauce which I dropped all over my floor <–glass and caramel nightmare!
And their bourbon vanilla is a staple for all my baking or for vegan vanilla softserve
I saw this today but didn’t buy it. Maybe I should?
It would probably be stellar ground on top of anything from iced coffee…
…to sprinkled on top of some Raw Vegan Dark Chocolate Fudge Bites
I also went to the other grocery store
I did laundry
I ran and did yoga
I spent time with Skylar
I made meals and snacks all.day
And I have to work yet.
Second shift much?
From my last post, thanks for the wonderful compliments on my Pride Pictures! It was such a fun day and it was great to hear if you’ve been to any Pride fests in your area.
Last reminder about about the Summer in a Box Giveaway
1. Best thing you ate or did over the weekend?
Being with Skylar, munching on juicy watermelon, and seeing so much love and pride all weekend long all over my neighborhood has rocked. And the perfect sunny weather has been lovely, too!
2. Do you typically use the weekends, or Sunday, as a Day of Rest or not?
I don’t! I use them as a time to get caught up on things from the previous week and get a headstart on checking things off my list for the upcoming week.
Scott is able to watch Skylar and take her to the park on the weekends and be with her which gives me time to just turbo through what I need to do. Saturday and Sunday afternoons are golden for me in terms of being busy, being productive, and doing things. No resting for me! Would love to, but also have too many things to juggle to just “hang out and rest”. <—That was P.K. (pre-kiddo) and a fulltime job. But the memories of a day of rest are nice. One day again, I’m sure I’ll get there.
