First, thanks for all of the best wishes on my class this last Friday. It went so well and was great fun. I really enjoyed being able to not only demonstrate a few recipes but also to be able to share some of the principles we can learn from history for both frugal and healthy living. I somehow got through the night without taking a single picture though! I will have to remedy that this next Friday as the classes continue.
I also plan on sharing one of the recipes from this last class soon. A delightfully chocolate pudding cake. Yum! (And it’s frugal too!)
The other exciting item in our week, was a little mini trip to the beach. Despite the fact that our sleep cycle (for all three of us) had gotten off, and we were all a bit tired, we had a wonderful time. My husband didn’t want me to have to cook all of our meals while we were gone, so he took us to a very nice cafe, and we had the most wonderful food. After which, we spent some time reading and playing on the beach.
And Elena, our two year old, was even brave enough to stick her toes into the very cold Oregon Coast water.
We had amazing weather.
And though it sounds so unoriginal to say, it’s true that standing in front of something so vast, beautiful and dangerous, like the ocean, puts yourself in perspective- in a good way, I think.
What is it about the beach that is so relaxing, but can be so awe inspiring too? By the way, if you want to be awestruck by the wonders of our created world, check out Blue Planet. It’s absolutely amazing!
I have some great posts planned for this week, including a give away, so stay tuned!
How about you? Anyone been enjoying summery days too?
