I’m feeling a little insecure that I can’t blog today about some cute things I did for St. Patrick’s day for my family. Something festive like green pancakes or corned beef and cabbage for dinner. I’m just not that kind of a mom yet. Someday.
So all I have are three thoughts that had nestled into my head as it hit the pillow last night.
1. I feel healthy when I eat bread with sunflower seeds in it. Something about that nutty crunch convinces me I am doing my body a favor. I have been looking for a quality wheat bread for awhile and I think I found it in the bakery at our local Paul’s. It is cooked right there in the store and BONUS: it has sunflower seeds.
2. I generally use pens for all my writing needs. Which, it just so happens in this technological world are very few. In fact, I found a few weeks ago as I finally got around to writing thank you gifts for Miriam’s baby shower, that my writing skills have greatly declined and I made many mistakes. Nevertheless, last night I grabbed a mechanical pencil to scratch out my grocery list and I was delightfully reminded of my love for mechanical pencils. Something about the way the lead makes a nice little angle causes my handwriting to drastically improve. Note to the Easter Bunny: How about some mechanical pencils in my basket this year?
3. I love the smell of cilantro. At the grocery store last night the herbs weren’t labeled so I took my best guess as to which was cilantro. One giant olfactory inhale and my estimate was confirmed. I may have stuck my nose in that plastic bag several more times before it came to rest in the refrigerator. Mmm cilantro.
