Don’t you love giving all of your imminent responsibilities the finger and taking a weekend getaway? Oh wait. Except that I’m a stay-at-home-mom and my primary responsibility is taking care of my kids…here’s where that analogy falls apart.
What we should have done this weekend: Put 2nd and 3rd coats of white paint on the 70s wood paneling in our living room. Taped the rest of the room. Bought gray paint. Painted. Found recruits for moving the next weekend. Found a moving truck. Tried not to strangle each other.
What we did: Dropped our kids off at my parent’s. Drove to the coast. Went to a concert that we had free tickets for. Ate greasy delicious overpriced food. Went kayaking in the ocean. Went antique shopping. Ate halibut and cheesecake.
I still am pretty committed to getting our main living room painted before we actually move in. Now I only have 3 days left to finish. Still worth it.
Until a few weeks ago, I hadn’t jumped on the basil-is-yummy-in-sweet-things-bandwagon. It just sounded weird to me. Basil is for pesto and pizza, not dessert. But then I went to a restaurant a few weeks ago and tried their Watermelon Basil Lemonade…I’m a convert. This recipe is not light on the basil flavor, so if you are dubious you might want to decrease it a little. But try to overcome your dubiousness. I promise, it is delicious.
