A Little Slice of Life
August 29, 2014

Backyard Garden I

Last week was pretty horrible as far as weeks go. I'm not going to get into details, but I'm finding that getting back into a normal routine of things is helping me cope.

Not that writing a blog post is a normal routine for me right now, but I think I'd like it to be, so here we are.

Holly posted something last week that struck a chord with me. She mentioned that some of her favorite blogs were the ones that provide a little slice of everyday life, and I couldn't agree more. The blog Say La Vee has been a favorite for years because I love the little "slice of life" tidbits she provides (whether they be good or bad). I need to remember this for my own blog.

So with that in mind, here's a few day-to-day things that are knocking around in my brain:

  • I was gifted with a giant zucchini squash a few days ago, so I ordered this tool in the hope that at some point I will attempt "zoodles". I'll let you know how that goes.
  • The husband recently had a birthday, and I tried to find him a matcha tea set locally, but ended up ordering this one from Amazon. We were surprised by how large the bowl/mug is. It is, however, a very nice bowl. Even if it doesn't get used for tea, it will get used.
  • The second batch of mango lassi popsicles that I made with the full amount of honey turned out better than the first. They were still on the icy side (but they are popsicles, after all), but definitely not as hard as the first batch. I am finding that the longer they're in the freezer, the harder they get, but if there's more than two people in your household that like popsicles, it probably won't be an issue.
  • And while we're on the topic of popsicles, Molly just posted this recipe for fudgesicles - I think this may be my next frozen dessert adventure...

  • Last, but not least, I'm in the very early stages of planning a trip to Chicago and possibly Quebec next year. If anyone has restaurant/sight seeing/hotel/etc. recommendations, feel free to send them my way.

Okay, so after typing all that up, I'm realizing that my "slice of life" stuff may involve a lot of lists. But I'm a lover of lists, so I suppose that makes sense.

So, um, stay tuned for some more lists!
