Yesterday I took the day off from work. I originally decided to take it off for different appointments, but all but one of those ended up being rescheduled. So I basically had the entire day to do what I wanted. It was so fun pretending like I was one of those people who doesn’t have to work, frolicking around town doing what I pleased. I’ve determined that my house would always be clean, I would be in amazing shape, and my hair would almost always be done if I didn’t have to work.
Do you ever wonder about those people? The ones you see from out of your office window shopping all day long, or picking up groceries at 2 in their workout clothes. I’m not talking about the moms. I’m talking about the twenty somethings, running around town doing what they please all day every day. Trust fund babies? Lottery winners? $30k millionaires?
Anyway back to my day…around noon I was freed up from my morning activity, and had the rest of the day to myself. I spent the good part of an hour playing at the SPCA with various dogs. There were some real cuties down there yesterday, and a couple full bred dogs too (weimeraner and a basset hound). I fell in love with about twenty of them, but none came home with me. And after a jog, some yoga, and a shower later, I found myself in my pantry staring at the sugar canister. Normal, probably not, but that doesn’t bother me too much. After a few more minutes of tinkering in the pantry, sampling chocolate chips to make sure they hadn’t gone bad, I decided it was time to bake the snickerdoodle muffins from tasty kitchen.
These turned out just delicious.. I somehow forgot to make snickerdoodles during the holiday season, so these muffins were just what my tastebuds and my waistline needed. Wait, maybe not my waistline, but that’s beside the point. Here’s the recipe: Snickerdoodle muffins I followed the recipe, guestimating on tsps as usual, and thought the muffins were very good. I may cut back on the butter next time though. They are soft and fluffy inside with a nice crispy carmelized sugar top. Perfect for breakfast, but even better as dinner with a little warm butter. It makes about 18 muffins, so I brought the majority of them in to work today for those of us who have to work through spring break. I think my coworkers appreciated it.
And, just to clarify, I am in no way complaining about my job. I know that I am very blessed to be employed and work for a company like mine. But, I can’t help but wish I still had the occasional spring break. 🙂
