I have done a whole lot of nothing and a whole lot of everything lately. My hometown hockey team won the league President’s Cup so it’s been an exciting week locally. Lots of celebrations and things around town. I’ve baked and baked and baked. Sometimes for hockey boys, sometimes stressing baking. At one point, at home, we had two cakes, a loaf of banana bread and homemade cookies on the counter.
Last Saturday I attended an arts festival with one of my best and oldest friends. It was the first nice day we’ve had in a while. Our winter was really wet and cold (not usual for us) and it took the temps a while to warm up. Finally it did though! This festival is in its eigteenth year and almost always gets rained out. We were all so happy it was sunny the entire weekend. We walked around and looked at paintings and jewelry and photography. Then we decided to sit on the grass and just soak up the sun. Which I did a little too much of because my back ended up burned, where my shirt was scooped in the back. When we left the festival we went to grab a late lunch because we were both ravenous. It was one of the best days I’ve had in a while. It’s nice to finally be able to get out of the house and not freeze.
I have been a baking machine because of @huntsvillehavoc playoffs. I stress bake while listening to away games. German chocolate cake (not pictured) Thursday night. Oatmeal peanut butter cookie bars using a @fitfoodiefinds recipe. Strawberry poke cake from @nikki_chefintraining annnnnnd Peanut butter banana bread with chocolate chips from @thebrowneyedbaker.
I am still terrible about this blogging thing. I don’t know why I can’t get consistent! Laziness? Boredom? Lack of things to post about? I really think it’s a combo of all three. Maybe now that fun things are happening I can get out more and even do some photo posts. I have started working on Shutter in the South, posting photos there and playing with my new camera. I currently have only a 50mm lens for it, because my old lenses won’t work on this model. I’m hoping to get a 70-200mm this summer. I’ve had my eye on the same one for a while. It seems like it’ll be great as a multi purpose lens. Why are lenses so expensive?! Ugh.
