Sunday browsing!

Sunday is my aimless surfing day lately. Our week has started but for everyone else, it's still the weekend, so no one is posting, and I find it's the best time for me to catch up on blogs, newspapers, emails, photos, and all my other subscriptions for recipes, crafts, and so on. So, when everyone else is weekending away, I'm chilling at home and catching up with everything from where the latest cigar auction online is going on to how to make paper flowers and wreaths. Sunday is the best day to be online for me, since it's also the day I can do most of my work without being distracted, since I know very few people are online.

recharging my batteries

Some days all one can do is to wait for the night when I can fall into bed and hope to sleep an uninterrupted sleep. There's just no way to keep up with a little toddler who has an endless supply of new tricks to try out. How I wish that I too had and endless font of energy, something like rechargeable aaa batteries that seem to go on and on forever. That would be nice, wouldn't it, to actually go and recharge yourself and get through the day. Wishful thinking! Tea was the answer for a while, but now it doesn't give me enough pep and coffee, I try to avoid just because of the caffeine factor. Oh well, time to get some actual rest now.

photo: sour cream and chocolate chunk muffins

As you can see, I've not yet given in to my craving of chocolate after writing the last post. I thought I'd share with you some of the stuff I've made. These were made several months back (as can be seen from the heading on the newspaper) and came out quite nice. They were sour cream and chocolate chunk was a cake actually, but I had some leftover batter, so put them in the muffin pan.

I'm craving some cake!

I love to bake something before the weekend starts. Even though it can get really hectic at times, I like the idea of having something to have with our coffee and tea over the weekend. But lately, I've just been feeling so overwhelmed with it all, and having been messing up with my baking, so now I think it's time that I just give in once in a while, and order a cake from the professionals. I'm drooling over the chocolate hazelnut torte at Shari's Berries where you can have all kinds of cakes delivered to your doorstep. I do wonder if they will deliver to my neck of the woods though? The more I look at all the delicious cakes and cookies they have, the more I crave having something chocolatey right now. There are some real cute options, like the white chocolate covered strawberries with baseball markings on them. What an awesome idea!

golfing gadgets

As everyone knows, golfers are all mad people. Ok, I know that's being a little too harsh, but taken in the right spirit, it actually is all about how dedicated golfer are. No matter what the weather, no matter how hot it is, dedicated golfers will go out and play. Golfers love to have a variety of gadgets that help them with their game, little tricks that increases their driving distance, helps them read and hold the line of the putt, and things like having one of these garmin golf gps systems is a no brainer. So, head out and tee off in the heat, and enjoy your game.
