Without meaning to, it seems I've taken a bit of a blogging vacation.
Life has gotten really hectic.
But just when I feel like life is really spiraling out of control...
I warm myself up some milk, and add two pumps of this.
It's my very own little Starbuck's moment here at home.
I even get out my little frother and do it up right.
Life is all about the special details don't you think?
On Shrove Tuesday we had a great supper of Pancakes.
It's just been one of those weeks.
Tuesday was a meeting for 1st communion for Youngest.
Wednesday was Ash Wednesday and we went to Mass.
Thursday was an appointment to have our family pictures for the Parish directory.
And tonight Eldest has a exhibition game for soccer to help prepare for Provincials.
Busy, busy, busy.
Wiser ones that have gone before us always said this would happen, and they were right.
As part of our Lenten preparation we want to try and spend more time together as a family.
Surprisingly this puzzle is pulled out as an alternative to the computer or TV.
It's a good one, with great retro photo's from The Saturday Evening Post.
It is the perfect time for conversations you wouldn't normally have.
I don't think they realize they are doing it because they are concentrating on the puzzle pieces.
I'm hoping it will slow down a bit soon.
This weekend The Agronomist is working at a trade show.
And he will be doing so again next weekend.
I, on the other hand will be on an 11 hour bus ride with Eldest.
We will be driving across the province for soccer provincials.
Did I mention we would be in a bus?
But I'm sure she appreciates it.
She b.e.t.t.e.r. appreciate it.
E.l.e.v.e.n. hour bus ride.
Did I also mention it would be the same distance there and back?
I get tired just thinking about it.Plus lately, just in general, I'm tired.
I thought going off sugar and staying away from bread would help me in that department?
It makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong?
I can fall into bed at nine o'clock every night now, without a second thought.
Before... midnight, no problem.
I took a picture of this salad at a White Spot in the Vancouver airport.
It was sooo good. Edamame and almonds.
I want to try and recreate it.
Hopefully I will get my energy back soon and feel like all this healthful eating is making a difference for the better.
My respects to all those women who work outside of the home.
I'm only working five hours a day and only mornings if the kids are home from school.
It makes me realize how much I actually accomplished while everyone was at school.
There is absolutely no down time when errands, laundry, groceries, and kids appointments all happen between the hours of 3 and 6.
All of you who have been doing this from day one.
My hat goes off to you!
Go get yourself a bottle of Vanilla syrup.
You deserve it!
And a Frother.
You deserve one of those too.
It brings the vanilla syrup experience to a whole new level... trust me.
