Today is a Thursday that feels like a weekend to me. Yesterday I worked in our booth near the State Fair during the afternoon / evening. Aside from the great people watching and near brush with fame when Gene Simmons’ Tour Bus drove by, all I accomplished was coming home slightly sunburned and extremely dirty. (I literally had dirt under every single one of my finger nails). This morning Steve is working the booth, so I am home with the baby and NO WORK PHONE. Which I love because it feels like a day off. Which is why it feels like a Saturday.
You may or may not know this about me, but I am an insane list maker. On weekends, or days like feel like weekends, I make ridiculous lists while I enjoy my morning coffee. With Tessie at my side I make these lists out loud and they seem even more ridiculous when spoken, but I do it anyway. For example, today my list items include:
- enjoy morning coffee
- play with Tessie
- make food for Steve to take to Fair this weekend
- go to the office, do all that work, blah blah blah
Of course I have distracted myself already and found this recipe for mini pumpkin muffins on Pinterest. While the muffins are baking I am blogging and already the baby is awake. Or did she ever fall asleep? Such a mystery. That girl talks non stop. I go to check out what all the noise is about and attempt a video of her but she is on to my tricks. I am so busted.
Meanwhile, the muffins are done. They are DELICIOUS. No surprise, because the dry ingredients smelled amazing when I was mixing it up. The topping is totally not needed, but I am a sucker for anything with cinnamon and sugar on top of it so I did it. Here is the recipe.
This reminds me. Emily, thanks for letting me borrow your mini muffin pan 2 years ago.
