I know, one day is much the same in the passage of time. But somehow Friday seems to make a difference in how I perceive the day. Monday seems to start at the outer edge of a deep chasm, and it's hard, sometimes, to fathom crossing to the other side. But we start going on faith, with one step after another, and suddenly you notice a ratty rope bridge you set up for yourself a long time ago, but forgot about. And before you know it, welcome to Friday.
This weekend is off to a good start, mostly because it was hot lunch at my second son's school today, which meant I didn't have to wake up my brain enough to make his lunch before enjoying my coffee. A morning of studying, course calls, and baroque classics on Stingray, and I'm in a peaceful, happy place. The weekend stretches ahead like an oasis, blissfully unplanned and open. I know it's going to be less than idyllic because...life...but I can enjoy the illusion right this second. My picture shows the state of my mind at this moment...ahhh...
Now, what are your weekend plans? I have some grand ideas lined up for myself. I am going to cook a dozen breakfast sandwiches, to store in the freezer for breakfasts this week, as well as boil a bunch of eggs and make a pot of oatmeal. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, but since coming home from my trip I've been scarfing down a hastily constructed peanut butter sandwich. Hardly the stuff of dreams.
I've also got this strong desire for blueberry and saskatoon crumble. So I think I'm going to make one of those for "now", and one of those for the freezer. I'll use this recipe, but berries instead of apples. We actually have vanilla ice cream in the freezer. It's going to be a tasty weekend.
And, we're going camping in a few weeks, so I should really be thinking ahead about what foods we're going to bring, and start cooking ahead. I like camp stove cooking, but it's got to be easy, and ingredients have to be easily packed, space being the premium it is, with all our camping equipment and supplies stuffed on the roof, in the back, and around the kids. I was going through my bookmarks and came across this Ziplock bag camping article. I thought it was worth the re-read, and so I'm sharing it with you today. I hope you enjoy it!
If you get some time, fill me in on what your weekend looks like! I can't wait to hear about your adventures, from wherever you reside on our lovely blue planet. Until next time, happy eating and drinking, and enjoy every moment.
