this weekend was a nice one, a quiet one. much like they usually are these days. i got some good cleaning done, the sun was shining, the wind was blowing, and the temperatures were on the lower side (well, considering that it’s been in the 50s, 30s + 40s now feels chilly. this winter has made a wimp out of me!) so we didn’t go out too much. i had a hankering for breakfast foods this weekend so we ate a lot of it–for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the form of oatmeal with vanilla, peaches, and blueberries, banana sour cream pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, and dreamy cream scones. interrupted by a lasagna and sauteed brussel sprouts on saturday night (by the way, if you don’t already sauté your brussel sprouts, please do so immediately. they’re even better than roasted. just cut them in half, and sauté with some olive oil, butter, then sprinkle liberally with sea salt. i literally cannot keep my hands out of the pan when i’m making them and we have had them weekly for about 2 months straight). so, there was some good eatin’ to be done this weekend. beyond that, relaxing, fort-building out of blankets and pillows, reading, cuddling, and playing. and now, gotta go watch the oscars!
