I have lost track of what day it is.
Handsome took off work on both Friday and Monday, and the hours in between were filled to bursting with a wild mix of partying, scurrying around getting ready for said partying, dating each other easily around town, and resting. Oh, and car repair and a little farm clean up. I have not been for even a short run since last Thursday, and my body feels it. My mind feels it. That’s not meant as a complaint, though; I am actually glad to feel the difference. Its always nice to scrub out all that weird energy after a short hiatus.
Anyway the hiatus was pretty active and amazing.
Klaus is at my bare feet as I type, nibbling and snuffling gently, and my coffee is about as perfect as coffee gets. My mind is on seven thousand wonderful things, mostly my children and my husband and our niece’s wedding that is soon happening here. On Friday night, to be exact. Wait, what day is it again? Have we established that yet?
This week’s blogging may be a little different. Chances are good that I’ll just use you guys to sort of empty the chaos from my brain. I’ll try to add photos of the fun as we go, so maybe you’ll forgive me my formlessness.
Tuesday. It’s Tuesday, right?
Okay in that case, let’s at least mention a recipe. Last week leading up to Handsome’s birthday I made Ree’s No Bake Peanut Butter Bars, and basically this is only the second chocolate-peanut butter recipe in my entire life that I cannot stop eating. Normally it’s just not a combo I groove, but this? Cold and slightly crunchy and thick and sweet and salty… Dangerously good. And zero baking, so it’s nice for a late summer treat. Oklahoma is still in the humid high 90’s after all, so let’s keep those ovens cold. Make these if you are trying to gain five or six pounds. Ha-ha, I’m only kidding a little. These actually helped me kill my sweet tooth and keep up some energy over the hectic weekend. Delicious!
Wish me luck this week, friends! I am excited. We have so many beautiful and worthy goals in front of us. So much love to share and enjoy. And every scrap of it requires work.
So I am first going for a really long run.
Over and out.
