The fact that I’ve slowed down the blogging is a very good thing. I think of things I want to share all the time but I’m making myself be more selective about what I spend my time blogging about. I do wish I had more time to blog about things like: tandem nursing, living with a 2 year old and being a new mother to two kids. However, these three things I’ve listed won’t last forever and life will always be changing so I’m making some things priorities and others I’m putting in an imaginary box to return to at a later date. (I’ve entered a new Buffy obsession. I never watched the series when it was on tv so it’s all new to me- currently, I’m watching it on hulu. Pixie, it’s like we’re living parallel lives.)
I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen making some yummy food. One could say that it’s my new addiction. One of the things I recently made in the kitchen was some hand salves and lip balms for Ayyam-i-Ha. As these celebratory days approach (sunset of March 25-sunset of March 1), we’re getting cards in the mail and presents (balms) ready to give to our in-town friends. I’m also planning on making an upside-down cake with yummy fruit we froze from the summer and some chocolate chip cookies (we never buy chocolate chips so this is a real treat).
Besides getting ready for Ayyam-i-Ha, I made some soy milk again. This time from a different recipe. It didn’t have me de-hulling the soy beans one by one so you can imagine I prefer it already. Below is a picture of the milk I made. It’s got vanilla and maple syrup. Yummy.
Since today is my friend Mic’s birthday, I wanted to do send a shoutout his way and invite you to read his new blog: Drive In ’77
Happy Ayyam-i-Ha! and to those who are going into this week knowing that the March brings the Fast, have a wonderful Fast, as well.
