We like to share a photo and thoughts from our week, but I confess, that the above photo was taken two weeks ago while we were on the East Coast. It shows little A in his element – surrounded by kitties! That guy loves a cat like I would have never expected. He now has 4 stuffed kitties of varying sizes, and while I tried to capture him holding all of them at once (he’s been walking around the house with them), the photo escaped me! Maybe it’s because I spent the week feeling sleep deprived. I stopped drinking coffee while we were traveling for the holidays, but this week proved that I had to start up again (just a half cup in the morning), if I want to survive Alex’s early mornings! The coffee has also given me the power to start a few new knitting projects, finish others (more soon!) and straighten up this house, particularly my craft room/office, in an attempt to get our year off to an organized and creative start!
I can’t believe January is nearly over! I feel like 2015 is moving way too fast already. To slow it down, I’ve been taking longer dog walks and drinking bigger smoothies. That makes sense, right? This week I came up with a new way of holding Ca$h’s leash. It’s basically a way to pit my entire body weight against his strength. That sounds complicated, but it’s really not. I’ll post a pic to IG tomorrow so you know what I’m talkin’ about. Yesterday I made an enormous creamy cashew smoothie and it was SO tasty!
Here’s a smoothie sippin’ outtake. This is why I don’t allow myself to appear in photos. See my smoothie ‘stache? Cashew smoothies are so creamy and delicious. Yum, yum, yum!
- 1 heaping cup of raw cashews (soaked overnight)
- 1 cup tea (I used pineapple green tea)
- 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- drizzle of maple syrup
- Combine the soaked and drained cashews along with the tea, pineapple and berries in the blender.
- Blend until smooth. Add more tea if necessary.
- Add some maple syrup or other sweetener if desired and blend.
