What’s on my mind? Way too much to even begin to get things straightened out inside my head, so for now I’m ignoring all of my racing thoughts. I wish I could shut off my brain for a bit, but I suppose that wouldn’t be such a great idea. My thoughts are not necessarily negative ones, they’re just too numerous and I want my brain to take a rest if only for a bit. Yes, that’s it, just for a bit.
I hope today’s entry finds all my readers doing well. Despite my racing mind I’m doing pretty good. I have my health, my cats, my Kaylie, my life and I woke up to breath another day which I’m grateful for.
The past two days it was hot here, temps were well into the nineties with the feel like temperature of 108 on Monday and 106 on Sunday. Tuesday wasn’t too bad with the humidity breaking and it was only about 88 for the high and today was about 84. Tomorrow is supposed to be about 94 with the humidity and dew points making a comeback, I’m not looking forward to that but with thunderstorms returning for the next few days returning it will cool things right off again. Thank goodness!
I just finished watching season ten of Heartland and I still can’t stand Lou, that woman drives me absolutely insane! My favorite character is still Amy and my favorite couple is Amy and Ty. Amy has given birth to her baby and I can’t wait to see what they name it, of course I need to find that out in season eleven. This show is so totally worth watching, it has tear jerkers and man do they know how to end episodes on cliffies. Phew! I highly recommend anyone watch if they love horses and twisted plots.
Work is thinking of extending my Saturday hours! I’m excited about the prospect, I’m hoping I’ll find out about that this weekend when I go back. I was talking to one of my bosses last Saturday and the short but awesome conversation went something like this.
Boss: You all done for the day?
Me: Yes, you know at times I don’t feel like as if my Saturdays are long enough.
Boss: Well, we can keep you longer if you like.
Me: Okay! I would be fine with this.
Boss: You looking to expand your hours on Saturday?
Me: You know? I really would not mind that at all.
Boss: Let me talk to Anna and I’ll see if that would be alright, we could really use you if she approves more hours. Our Saturdays are really busy.
Me: Awesome! Thank you so much!
Boss: Yeah, you’re welcome.
On Monday I hadn’t heard anything about it so I’m guessing she didn’t have the chance to speak with her yet. Keeping fingers crossed that it works out, I could really use the extra income.
I’m still searching for a second job, nothing has come up yet but it will. There has got to be something out there for me, I just know it.
Currently Flint and Kaylie have fallen into a zoned out state of being. Flint’s sitting on the couch and Kaylie in her computer chair. I wouldn’t be surprised if they fall asleep or have already fallen. Yup, I hear snoring coming from over on the couch. I just knew it, I so knew it. :P.
Well, I’m feeling a bit nauseous so I’m going to head off. I hope you all have a wonderful night but before I go I’ve got a recipe that sounds really good.
Crock-Pot French Toast Casserole
12 Slices Bread (Each Slice Cut Into Thirds)
5 Large Eggs
1 ½ Cups Milk
½ Cup Unsalted Butter (Melted)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
¼ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1. Layer the bread pieces in the bottom of a 3.5 quart casserole slow cooker OR a 6 quart or larger slow cooker in a crisscross pattern.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients well.
3. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread in slow cooker.
4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or until the casserole is set but not soggy.
5. Serve slices drizzled topped with maple syrup or fresh fruit.
Alright, that’s all she wrote until next time…*wave*.
