A Week In The Life, Vol 19.
Our May showers turned to snow this week!
It was crazy. Hi! Hello! Happy Mother’s Day!
We have this incredible nest in our magnolia tree! It makes me so happy. It’s very high so I can’t even see it from the ground, but Eddie can reach it with his phone.
Today was so weird! I think it’s just the weight of this whole situation finally hitting me. A few hours ago I felt like I could burst into tears for no reason. It made no sense because here at home with my family I am so happy and in love. But not being able to have everyone else over and all the limited social interaction, with what seems like no end in sight is weighing on me. Our state is verrrrrry slowly starting to open up, but I don’t feel safe going anywhere. I don’t feel safe doing anything we used to do!
And then of course I feel horribly guilty for even feeling sad and upset because I’m in an ideal situation – we both have jobs, my kids don’t have to spend hours on zoom for school, I can cook anything I want for dinner, our family is healthy and safe right now.
WHAT A COMPLETE MIND SCREW, right?!
Anyway. Here’s a messy plate of zucchini pasta and house salad. Winning! It was such a good dinner.
Started reading big summer this week and it.was.so.good.
Lunch outside even though it was chilly. Little did we know that it would snow later in the week.
I have such a hard time doing cold brew at home. Love my chameleon cold brew and I ADORE La Colombe in store, but can’t make this one work!
Why yes I do make a house salad five times a week.
The most gorgeous sight!
Grilled some chicken thighs for dinner one night.
Still in major chalk mode over here.
Eddie might love it more than the kids.
Plus, a quick makeshift sandbox. Haha.
Made some mother’s day cards!
Finally made a (mostly) successful loaf of sourdough! I used Laura’s recipe.
It was still a little flatter than I’d like, but so good.
These two just make my life. Seriously! The dynamic between them warms my heart.
Oh and I also made sourdough pizza on Friday!
It was amazing.
And here’s the sourdough with butter, honey and flaked salt. It snowed on Saturday morning. How is this possible in May! Whyyyyyyy.
Made my grilled potatoes, a bunch of grilled vegetables, a killer salad and then I caught the grill on fire when I made the burgers. I WISH I WAS KIDDING.
Even though I was a rambly mess above, it was such a good day! And a good week. Minus the whole May snow thing. What! Maybe that’s why we had so many carbs? Hahaha.
