Loving: Frozen cookie dough. I happened upon a great cookie dough recipe that makes perfectly soft cookies and I learned from my wise sister to freeze the cookie dough in balls and use as needed. Well summer means no oven use because I hate to have appliances fight one another (A/C takes on the oven and the heat from the oven wins) so I just don't bake much. Enter frozen cookie dough, a perfect little dessert.
Reading: I read And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini who also wrote Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. I would highly recommend this book. Gripping. Heartbreaking. Convicting. Redeeming. Numerous stories and voices are weaved together into a wonderful book. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. And throughout the book, Hosseini quietly asks the reader, "Who are you? Which character do you identify with?" Read it. Also reading The Sun Also RIses by Ernest Hemmingway. RIght now I'm thinking, Ernest get over yourself, but I will wait to make final judgement to the end.
Watching: Nothing. Summer has become an unintentional no tv zone. We have been busy looking at houses online in the evenings and with no new episodes of Modern Family and the end of the Office. I suspect that will change with football season starting up, Broncos and Peyton all the way!
Stressing about: Wishing we had a house, but enjoy our time in this house, in our neighborhood, with our neighbors. I'm really going to miss my neighbors and our weekly dinners on Thursday nights.
Thinking about: Buying a Scamp trailer. Husband not so much. Don't mind me if I take a quick road trip to CA or MN to pick up a trailer.
Looking forward to: Savoring these last few days of summer. Why is it when everyone else is going back to school, I feel like my summer is over too? Miles is not signed up for preschool at this point. Maybe next year when he is 4 or maybe not. We will see. I will try to get a few more trips to the pool before they close for the season.
Making me happy: My 2 boys sleeping in the same room... soundly... no crying... until 6:40am. You guys that's almost 11 hours straight with 2 boys ages 3 yrs and 8 mos sleeping in the same room! We got our bedroom back. I'm so happy!
