…What is that?
I seem to have forgotten in amongst all of my…
- Skanking to ska tunes and drinking brews at music shows.
- Riding insane roller coasters at Canada’s Wonderland. Behold BEHEMOTH:
DO try going to amusement parks on an early June Monday when summer has not yet technically begun and kids are still all in school. My longest line wait was 15 minutes tops and I got on all of the best rides in the park, the above beast TWICE.
DO NOT, however, go on a day that is deceivingly sunny, only to be blasted by out-of-nowhere Arctic winds. I ended up having to go back to my car to change into jeans and a sweatshirt and still spent the next two hours freezing my buns off. Icy air + fast, sky high rides = Ice CUBE <–That was me.
Now if I could only figure out a way to translate my roller coaster riding bravery into real life bravery. A future mission perhaps.
- Working out.
Or not. I took more rest days than I have in months this week. I think they were needed. Plus, walking around an amusement park all day, for example, is plenty of exercise, am I right?!
But of course. Wake up and bake up. That’s what I did today. Rainy days are made for baking. Today was rainy. Case in point:
Sub honey instead of agave, walnuts instead of pecans, and use 1/4 cup of a mix of carob and semisweet chocolate chips and you’ll see exactly what came out of my oven at about 10:00 this morning.
- EATING. If that one wasn’t obvious…
Cereal is not going out of style. Why I am eating it like it is, well for that I have no answer.
My cow mug likes to be filled with things other than hot bevs.
Things like cooked oats topped with cottage cheese and jam.
Toasted Vitatops served over plain yogurt with juicy fresh pineapple and strawberries? Yes please!
Smooooooth as silk smoothie iced coffees alongside dinner? A-okay.
Leafy greens and rainbow veggies? Once in a while…
What would you like for dinner tonight? A Mini tofu burgers topped with guac + dijonnaise?
Or how about some nose-on-fire buffalo chicken meatballs?
Oh, you say you need a quick chocolatey fudge fix?
I say you mix 2T sunflower seed butter (or any nut butter for that matter) with 1T honey and 1T cocoa powder. Potentially double, triple, or quadruple the batch.
Freeze it. Wait for it. Eat it. Be in smart fudgy heaven.
I also say that I need to stop neglecting blogging for days at a time. I have no good excuses. Yet I always seem to have excuses a plenty up my sleeves (or maybe behind my ears since these summery days are leaving most of my shirts on the sleeveless side).
So, in conclusion, I have a few new missions now on my hands:
- Blog more often.
- Implement my roller coaster style bravery into everyday life.
- Tone down the useless excuses. They get you (me) nowhere.
There’s a few more I could shove in there but I’ll leave it at that for now.
And on that note… Cheerio!
