one little week.


I’m sure you may have noticed this already, but…well…I’ve been kind of gone this past week.  And I don’t mean just here as a blogger.  I mean everywhere. (I may have to email some friends to convince them that I’m really, truly alive.)

There are quite a few things that have happened over the course of just one little week.

First.  That job I was so excited/nervous about?  The one that I want more than anything?  The one that I’m trusting God’s best decision on?  Well.  I have an interview on Monday and now I’m officially freaking out.  I can’t say that I’ve ever had a professional interview before (grocery stores and babysitter’s parents hardly count!) so this one has me googling “job interview tips” like some sort of crazy person.

Absolute insanity.

Just wait until Monday.  There will be no living with me. 😉

Next: I have a running injury.

It’s true.  It was the beginning of an eight mile run this past Saturday, when I began to feel pain in my left achilles area.  I foolishly shrugged it off, thinking it was nothing.  But then on the last two miles home, it really began to hurt.  I’ve had achilles tendonitis before, so I know what it feels like.  This is similair but strangely different (more dull and achy.)  I’m hoping it’s nothing, really, and that a week off of running will make me good as new.

In the meantime, I’m doing a lot of yoga and speed walking (which strangely doesn’t hurt it at all.)  All to keep me sane and healthy until I can resume running. 😉

Lastly.  Let’s talk breakfasts.

I’m in a “same ol’, same ol” breakfast rut again, how about you?  That’s why I’ll be debuting Breakfast Week, where I’ll be making a new breakfast from here until Thanksgiving morning.

Today I went out for breakfast with my parents at Parker’s Maple Barn in Mason, NH.

Does this really count as “making” a new breakfast for Breakfast Week?  Does this count as cheating?

Oh well.  It sure was delicious. 😀

One blueberry buckwheat pancake.

One gingerbread pancake.

One side order of maple baked beans.

And lots of sticky sweet syrup.  That’s my kind of breakfast.


That’s what we are.

I wish the interview was over and that they loved me. 😉

Trying to keep warm!



Goodbye for now, Parker’s Maple Barn.

(we’ll be back soon!)


A lot sure has happened in just one short little week.

But I’m back.  Stay tuned for some yummy breakfasts.  I’ve got a good one coming for you, tomorrow morning. 😀

QUESTION: Do you tend to eat the same breakfast every day or are you colorfully creative?  If you’re in a breakfast rut like me, join me for the Breakfast Week, by trying a new breakfast for each morning from here until Thanksgiving!
