These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
The Squishy Monster, August 9, 2012
I’ve had it in my head to watch The Sound of Music very soon. Maybe I’ll watch it with the Gabs. She and I have had an amazing whirlwind week of fun and games. I’d always wanted a boy, but she’s making me want to change my mind!
Eggs Benedict. With a rich and runny egg, it starts the day off right with a bit of decadence, like the golden ambrosia of early morning.
and I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing wrong with a bit of dessert after breakfast–why not? Warm Coffee Cake–da bomb paired with a bold french press… (video is written down in the books).
Our Tea Party complete with baby Red Velvet Cakes, jammy-clad because that’s just how cool we are 😉
Pretty little fishies. They remind me of the ones that my Aunty had when I lived with her in Texas.
“Chocolate Milkshakes” –total fake out for finicky eaters: Unsweetened Almond (or Coconut) Milk, Unsweetened Cocoa, Crushed Ice, and a bit of Agave for a subtle hit of sweetness.
One even landed on my shirt but flew away before I could catch a shot. One of the most beautiful things an adult ever told me when I was a kid?
“Just when the Caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a Butterfly.”
All of the other Hydrangeas had browned and sagged, but this little cluster still made it through! (I wish I had a macro lens to capture all the water droplets).
After the week I’ve had, I thought this was too funny.
I hope that through ordinary life, you’re able to see the good, the happy, the great. Bad news or not!
