I am going to be very “nitpicky” for a moment. My trip to Aruba was, in fact, quite fabulous. It was also in June of 2008. I just returned from Antigua. I know, I know — all those “A” islands get confusing. 😉
Today was our departmental meeting. We have them twice a year, and they are pure. torture. In fact, they are so dreadfully boring that Mr. J falls asleep. Every time. Except for when he gives his own mind-numbing presentation, when we are all supposed to be chipper, interested and alert. Gah!! But I was assigned the role of official photographer for the event, so Cary got an outing. 😉
Cary did that, too. Natural light! The batter yielded so many pancakes! I was, of course, too impatient to cook them in two batches, but a wrench was thrown in my plans to make silver dollar sized pancakes when the batter spread on the griddle. Try flipping over three pancakes that have joined as one; it is not easy. The blueberries were flying everywhere! But I did get eight lovely pancakes in the end, so it’s all good. 🙂
I am seeing my nutritionist tonight for the first time since the start of the summer. Not to make excuses for myself, since it’s absolutely my responsibility, but things have gone sort of haywire ever since I got the news about my niece. I’m sure it will all be fine, though, so I shouldn’t worry — except that worrying seems to ensure that everything will be fine, so maybe I should worry!
Since I actually don’t have anything of import to say, and am really not quite sure exactly why I am posting, I will throw a few pictures at you and be on my merry way…
Zensoy vanilla pudding with blackberries and raspberries… which are actually better in yogurt.
This is another variation of “baked beans on a sweet potato” … and how odd, I didn’t realize until I linked that, but I ate roasted broccoli with it last time, too. I used Lightlife Smart Tex Mex here.
This might seem random, but maybe I’ll tell you later why I’m asking this question… What’s your favorite moment from when you were in the sixth grade?
Have a happy Thursday!
