My original plan this Saturday was work, so I began my work routine at 4:10 this morning, but soon after leaving my house I received the glorious phone ring that would put me on call for the day. So I went back to bed, but of course, I couldn't sleep anymore. I decided to enjoy the quiet for a little while.
Isn't having a clean house one of the best feelings? Friday has become our official cleaning day because it is the only day of the week that we are both always off for. This scene will last, maybe a couple of hours.
What is it about Saturday's that breakfast seems so much more...important, or enjoyable? I considered a Sonic breakfast burrito, but decided I need to stick with my oath to not eat out until our Italy trip. So i found this recipe and went for it.
It actually tastes, kind of like a doughnut!
The finished product-
Maybe Saturday's will become my brunch sharing recipe day. When I'm not working anyways. Or maybe not. I like to think I can cook, but that's not exactly true ;) .
It's nice to have some quiet hours. When I happen to be up in the early morning I always enjoy it (when I don't have a responsibility to attend to anyways) and think, I should make this a habit. But there will be times in my life when I will be getting up early everyday, (I hear kids do that to you) and fewer times when I can sleep in, so I think I will enjoy that opportunity while I have it.
After doughnut making, the beast (Penny) began to stir and she was released from her holding. And of course she comes leaping and bounding onto every surface of furniture and is why my living room doesn't stay clean for very long.
I think I will try out some embroidery today since all of the cleaning and laundry are done. I will let you know how that goes. Right now I'm watching Eat Pray Love and dreaming of the pasta and pizza I will be devouring in seven and a half weeks!
