Last week felt off, not necessarily in a negative way. Maybe “off” isn’t the best descriptive word. “Unsettled” doesn’t sound much better, but it’s more true to how things felt. You know when you shake a bottle of Italian dressing, and all the particles rush around and then slowly start drifting to the bottom again? That was me. I was like one of the little pieces of oregano, slightly shaken but lazily floating.Another week has arrived. Maybe this week I’ll get to upgrade from a mere oregano fleck to a bona fide cube of bell pepper. I like to dream big. But before I rush into the new week, I’ll take a few minutes to look back on what last week held…a Week in Review, if you will.
Many thanks to Meg for hosting. Bottled a new batch of booch. Expert brewers, how do you add flavor to your batches and make it extra fizzy? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, preferably slightly dumbed down and with step by step instructions.Checked off not one but TWO doctor’s appointments, in one day. Vaccines updated, contacts prescription filled, questions about how many times a day I poop answered. *drops mic* This could have been the day I started feeling like an oregano fleck. Insurance talk and doctor talk stress me out.
Lost count of the number of loaves of banana bread baked.
Copious spotty naners = copious slices of carby heaven. Made mini-baby vegan cookies. Their petite size justifies the countless numbers consumed.
Moved and grooved, but you don’t really need to know about it. Visited my sister and her hubby. Mom, dad, and I drove to see them and met with my other sister and her hubby. We ate together. Laughed until our full bellies ached. And planned a future date to do the same thing all over again. But next time she’ll take me to the Lancaster Central Market, which is a hop, skip and a jump from her home.Picked blueberries again. This time, I got caught in what started as a friendly sprinkle and ended in a violent fury. Summer rain has a romantic feel. The berries and I were totally love struck.
Started a tangible (versus mental) list of items I’ll need to pack for this coming semester. It’s getting real!
Happy Monday, friends.
So tell me…
ANY kombucha secrets. I’m all ears.
How was last week for you?
Ever been caught in a torrential downpour?
