Homemade Cold Brew Coffee

It seems weird to be typing out a St. Patrick’s Day recipe right now. With the school closures and the event cancellations and the massive stockpiling of toilet paper.

But what else can I do? What else should I do? I’m washing my hands religiously, wiping down surfaces like a maniac, and avoiding unnecessary trips out in public. (Truth be told, I do all of those things majority of the time anyway.)

Is it too much of a stretch to compare them to SJP’s character in the movie? Almost definitely, but I’m still going to. Although, she was more of the reverse – kind of tart and unappealing on the outside but sweet and good on the inside.

Homemade Eggnog (& next year)

I remember such a specific Christmas when I felt I had it all together. My head was fully attached and on straight. Gifts were purchased in June and wrapped in November. The tree was bought and put up the day after Thanksgiving. The lights were on the house and lit every night.

I sincerely wonder/hope/pray if my life will ever feel that way again. If the holidays will ever feel that way again. I have great hopes that they will. I understand this is just a busy season in our lives. I also understand that there are positives that can come from this time, that are coming from this time.

I’m learning how to focus on what’s really important and let other things go.

Mulled Wine (& Monday)

Hello and happy Monday!

Is it too early to tell tails? …cocktails, that is?! (Oy, I’m mad at myself for that one.)

I feel like no. Because I spent most of yesterday thinking it was today and now IDK what I’m feeling like today.

Except…maybe a glass of mulled wine. That might feel nice.
