Weekend Bits

I spent the better part of my weekend with my nose buried in a book but think I went a bit too hard on Saturday and felt the sedating after effects all the next day, basking in the sun outside on a blanket, reading some more, hardly any more useful than being able to whisk together a plain-jane breakfast of oats, spice, honey, and chia seeds.  It’s hard to believe that not even two weeks ago, 5″ of hard crusted snow blanketed the ground with days of blissful 75 degrees to follow.  I got so used to the warmth.  Now they’re calling for more snow on Wednesday however this time, I will be sure to be stocked and ready with a full pantry and fridge, brimming with all the necessities, plus any possible spontaneous cravings.  #562, never do I feel more comforted or safe than when my house is filled with food.  The potential of a full belly equates into a happy home.  For me, anyways.

One night was spent with friends, tromping in late, clothes saturated with the heavy scent of a camp fire.  I tried my hand at J’s drums and quickly realized …I’m no Keith Moon but no matter, we gleefully crept away like we were 18 again.

Under a crescent moon, we all sat, half frozen to sit around a great blazing fire as everyone sang to the oldies.

There were no grand meals of note but we did revisit the sweet sultriness of roasted fennel and I lavished in the pleasure of sinking my teeth into fresh thick slices of soft and chubby challah, thickly paved with speculoos butter.

What was your favorite part of the weekend?

    A good piece of challah sounds pretty great right now! My weekend had great weather, quite a change from the cold Winter days we’ve been having so I was happy to get some sunshine in!

    Reading a book in the sun is pure bliss!

    Reading a book under the sun sounds so relaxing… Mine was a bit hectic running behind my two and half year old and entertaining him the whole day… But ultimately it brings so much happiness when he is giggling around and running in the house..

    Challah with speculoos butter sounds heavenly… I must say I spent my whole weekend watching tv series… I am still in the winter rhythm of weekends spent at home, though spring is coming slowly…

    AH!! Sounds wonderful Angie. We had an easy going and charged week end. One of my MANY nieces had an early celebration at a nice near by eatery/fun place in town. We thawed out a little but now it is near zero again, LOL.

    I just hope spring gets here intact–we’ve had such crazy weather. I’ll be happy when the sun comes out on the daily =)

    The ground was still wet, but forgivable considering I couldn’t remember the last time I was afforded the ability to sprawl out like that. They say we have at least one more bout of “Winter” but I hope that’s just a rumor…

    I think I’m going for another piece right now for a snack…
