Life recently has been hectic, busy and crazy so Eammon, Maisie and I decided we needed a break and a getaway. So, this past week the three of us escaped on a little five day cruise. It was exactly what we needed no computer, television, responsibilities or schedules just five days of sun, relaxation and fun.
I wanted no responsibility this past week, not even that of a camera but I did take my nightly picture of Maisie with her towel animal/creation.
I mentioned in my She Loves It post that I’d be enjoying a “cooking-free” week and now you know why. I thoroughly enjoyed not cooking, cleaning up or having the responsibility for feeding any one else all week long… oh and I especially loved not even having to make a bed but still coming back to a clean room every time I walked in the door. I do love cruises! As always with cruises it was food overload so I am glad to be back home and I’m looking forward to a bit of detoxing from all the sugar and excess and enjoying all the delicious and healthier food that I’ll be making this week. Maisie’s looking forward to seeing her friends, classmates & teammates as well as returning to school and gymnastics and her regular routine.
If you sent an email or called this week, please be patient as I have to sort through almost 1,000 emails but I will be in touch.
Because I didn’t cook anything new this week here’s a little food p0rn from the past. Okay the very recent past…but these little gems are so delicious and easy to make and I lay odds that you have all the ingredients in your home right now to make these…do it, these Walnut Roca Squares are wonderful!
