Grilling

The Date Night Inn

I took a deep breath, sighed a little, and was utterly content. It was dark, windy and rainy outside…but inside there was a warmth – a candle burning, its light flickering while the cool breeze from the open window cast shadows over the dimly lit living room. Sweet Z and I had just finished dinner on a date night in. Yesterday was the sort of day where you needed a little nap midday otherwise sleep was going to come very early. P.S.- date nights in do not have to be just for couples. (Remember, you are talking the QUEEN of making Joy the Baker’s Single Lady Pancakes with millions of variations?! I am an extremely lucky woman who gets to double the recipe now!) Though I am coupled, I also had a date night all for myself earlier this week, and I also had a girls night out! Single, coupled, with the girls, out with the guys…these nights are necessary. I always feel grounded, refocused and ready to move on…utterly content.

The View from Here

Calm

Some days the thoughts in my head do not match up with the words on the screen. The letters are slightly out of focus and misaligned. Today is that day. If this were my camera I would simply switch it to the auto setting. If this were a recipe perhaps it would need a little encouragement or a touch up. However, I am still searching for the autofocus button on life. Rather than dwelling on these crisscrossed signals I will press onward and share with you a few things that have keep me going forward. See that sunset in the picture above? Magical light like that surely keeps one going forward.

Make me Over!

Summer is almost here! It is so close I can almost touch it…only 2 days left for me until that magical and beautiful extended break. I was in the mood for procrastinating experimenting with recipes last week – yes, just call me crazy and silly. I revamped my favorite chewy molasses chocolate chip cookie.
