So, as many of you know, I have a fascination with oatmeal. It is my FAVOURITE. And sometimes, it seems like I have an oatmeal gift.
Uhhh, not this afternoon.
So, I lazed around my house for like four hours today before I got ready for a run of an unknown length. It turned out to be about 2 hours out total, with 30 minutes walking with my mom. I think alone, I covered 8 miles.. Which was tough. SUUUUPER tough. All hills.
By the time I got back, I was apparently extremely dazed and confused. I created what I thought might taste like cake batter oats.. Oh, I was so, so wrong.
This oatmeal was a FAILURE. But, I was waaay too hungry to throw it out. It was a sad day.
..Then, everything got happy because my mom and I made low-lactose cheesecake with cottage cheese and greek yogurt instead of cream cheese and a GF gingerbread crust. It’s still cooling, but I have a feeling it will be delicious!
We also made the filling for homemade peppermint truffles. DELICIOUS. They will be assembled tomorrow (my birthday!!). Along with that, I plan on going horseback riding, baking other delicious things, cleaning out a goose pen (ughhh, farm life doesn’t stop even if you’re getting older), and.. Getting Starbucks? Lolz, my bday is gonna be pretty boring. My best friend isn’t home from college yet, and all of my college friends live faaaar away. But on Wednesday I have a birthday date with the best friend, which will include playing with her puppy for hours. My mom and I were going to go to the Smithsonian Natural History museum, but unfortunately we decided there was too much to get done on the farm before we leave for my relative’s on Thursday morning, so that date had to be canceled. 😦 Hopefully, we’ll go next week when we get back because I REALLY want to see their mineral collection.
Anyways, not that exciting of a day. But.. I may be participating in WIAW this week, with WIA(on my birthday!).. Wahoo!
How was your Monday? What are your favourite holiday things to bake? What are you most excited for in this holidaytime?
See ya soonish!
