Ben washes his hands downstairs in the sink and my eyes fall shut. I'm not sure I have anything to say just now, but I will find something, won't I?
Life is a little overwhelming for the time being. Yarn, tangled in balls (puddles and hoards) on the floor and two doll quilts need retying if only I had the time. No, the energy. I do have the time! I'm just sleepy. :) So, too, is my dump of patterns on the living room carpet. Sprawling bits of vintage pretty, waiting to be categorized, lumped into "baby" and "women" and "men". Sweet Home Sweet is a mess! But at least we got rid of the ants.
We had T-bone steak for dinner, oven baked fries with cheese. It could have been more in sticking with my proper diet (no potatoes?), but I wanted those hot, crunchy-soft, cheese smothered... yum. Would you believe I put sour cream and bacon on top?
We eat low carb here. It's true.
When we're being good.
When we're not, it's tonight. Peppermint tea + peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. An odd combination? But perfectly, crumbly-sweet and delicious! I made them last night (the cookies) -- Ben helped -- sugar, peanut butter, almond flour, eggs and baking soda. Simple, grain free, if not low carb.
Today was cool enough for a jacket, although all I had brought to campus was one of Ben's flannel shirts. Over my white tank top, and coupled with hot fall coffee, it sufficed. I'm not ready for fall, but I am ready for a break in the heatwave. It was really quite a perfect day, weather-wise.
And even though I'm not ready for fall, I am ready for sweaters. Those, I've missed.
Maybe more tomorrow.
