The Most Important Reason to Love Winter


I love winter.

Because it means cold weather.

And, baggy clothes.

It means snow.

And, hot pink boots.

Hot chocolate:

Winter also means:

I don't have to shave my legs.

And, that.

Is the most important reason of them all.

To love winter.

What I Do When I Do Nothing


. . . SO

This is what my day felt like today.

Although, I didn't really do nothing all day.

I applied to jobs.

It just felt like nothing because I am so SLOW.

How Lazy People Serve Brownies

This is my friend, Erin.

She likes to bake just as much as I do.

A couple of weeks ago, Erin made some brownies.

And left them on the counter to cool before cutting them.

Her husband wanders into the kitchen, spots the cooling pan, and asks:

"Why did you only make one brownie?"

Winter vs. Summer

Daylight Saving Time just ended this past weekend and it drove home to me the differences between summer and winter.

7:30pm during the summer:

"Where's the party at? Where are we going? 
What are we doing?"

As opposed to 7:30pm in winter:

"It's not bedtime yet? How??? Why?"

Does anyone else feel like this when the seasons change?

Halloween, My Mama, and a Pumpkin

The other day, I was in the kitchen, having a deep conversation with a Japanese kabocha pumpkin.

While wielding a butcher knife.

Thinking about how good the kabocha would taste roasted.

When all of a sudden.

My mama burst into the kitchen and said, "You scare me when you hold a knife. Let me do it."

And I was like, "Okay, if you want me to not do work, I'm okay with that."

"Also, why am I scary when I hold a knife?"

My mom didn't answer me.

But I have a sneaking suspicion it has to do with how big of a klutz I am.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
