Happy Saturday afternoon everyone! I always seem to sit down for blogging coffee dates in the afternoon, but I’m certainly not drinking any coffee right now. What’s everyone up to today? I’m sure you’re all out enjoying some kind of summer activity. I’m staring out at a beautiful day over in our neck of the woods.
We are having some down time while James naps. I am in the middle of making healthy peanut butter twix bars, that we miraculously had all of the ingredients to make, praise! I’m finding these bars to be easy as well. They are only time consuming because of the cooling process in between steps. I don’t mind a recipe with built in down time. Still questioning where to set my expectations with these bars, they are labeled as “healthy”, but I’m holding onto hope that they taste good. Stay tuned!
Josiah took James out for a hike this morning and I got a little solo time at the apartment. It always goes by too fast, and I feel like I’m either unsatisfied by the things I get accomplished or I have no idea what to do with myself. Today I did a quick barre workout. Literally haven’t done any kind of workout for months besides walking, and this 15 minute workout kicked my butt. Plus I’m not sure how I feel about exercise these days. I wish I had more time and energy to exercise but I just don’t. Mothering a one year old, while it doesn’t tone my muscles, somehow feels like a workout every day. I also showered and next thing I knew the boys were home.
We went to a graduation party around lunchtime up at the church and James made a new best friend, Danielle. Well I’m not sure how James felt about the relationship, but Danielle was more than thrilled to cling to James the whole time. James is in one year old independent mode these days. Meanwhile I’m in invisible mom mode trying to keep an eye on James without invading his space. It’s a great time.
Let’s get back to the coffee, shall we? I worked in a coffee bar for almost 5 years and barely drank a sip of coffee, yet I have a fondness for the art of coffee and espresso. It smells amazing, latte art is fun, and creating different drink flavors and names is also a hobby of mine. Would I ever go back to working in a coffee bar? Absolutely! My husband thinks I should aim for higher stars, but I’m content with the low ones.
Coffee dates around here seem to equate to me talking about whatever comes to mind. Basically just a one sided conversation because my company right now is working away at his computer and I’m trying not to be a distraction. Life of a pastor’s wife…
Ok folks, off to finish those bars. Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog today. I hope you have a great day 🙂
