You know those days where everything is just humming along? Life is good. You're getting a lot done, your children are getting along, your husband is happily engrossed in his stuff...you know the kind, right?
Sunday was one of those days. We didn't go to the gym at dark o'clock (yeah, me!) and I woke up at the oh-so-late hour of 8:30 a.m. and couldn't decide what to make the family. After much dithering, I decided to seize the day! I got out of bed and headed downstairs and made blueberry muffins (I'll post the recipe this week - they are fabulous) to accompany the eggs and Spam (Superman LOVES Spam) I also made. I got a load of laundry in the washer first thing, too. My energy was infectious and everyone decided to have a terrific day. After breakfast was cleared and the dishes were done, I decided to do a little more baking, so...
I made these chocolate chip banana muffins, a loaf of banana oatmeal bread, and a loaf of white bread. I transferred the laundry from the washer to the dryer, too. Then I headed upstairs to take a shower, get dressed, make our bed, and generally tidy the upstairs.
When Superman and the kids were done washing the car (it is a BIG car!), I called them in for a late lunch of grilled-cheese sandwiches on fresh white bread, which used up the white bread, so I made a second loaf of white bread.
Then the neighbors, the same ones who kindly hosted Game Night Saturday night, wanted to know "what we're doing for dinner?". Well, a quick survey concluded that the Nagle5 weren't hungry for dinner...the lunch had been late and filling. Still, the neighbors wanted to have an impromptu card game "after dinner", so we agreedthey'd head on over after they ate dinner and I made this cinnamon roll cake for dessert. (See what I mean? I was on a roll...baking, baking, baking!)
Before I headed up to bed, I pulled out the laundry I'd started in the morning and folded it and discovered...
...that Superman had left a pen in his pocket. The day, however, was wonderful enough that I shrugged and said, "At least it was one of the napkins I don't like and Buttercup's pajama pants can become capri-length pajama pants." No big deal.
All in all, a good day. Don't you just love days like that?
