I woke up to cracking thunder at 6am this morning.
Not the kind of alarm I had hoped for!
Thankfully our Cville meteorologist assured me it was not a severe storm via Twitter (how convenient is it to be able to Tweet with a real, live, up-to-date meteorologist at the peak of a storm!? <3
social safety media).
I was also happy to see a G-chat from Matt on my phone: “You go back to sleep!”
Somehow he knew I was awake and scared of the storm. [My fear of storms stems from growing up in a house built in 1833 that sways in wind and had multiple huge antique trees fall within feet of it while I was inside.]
I went back to sleep for about 20 minutes after the storm and then I was woken up again by a twinkling alarm clock.
Pumpkin pancakes for the win!!
Salted Pecan Pumpkin Pancakes
I made 1/2 a cup of Kodiak cakes mixed with 1/3 cup pumpkin. I got two GIANT hearty cakes out of that portion. Pumpkin rules.
But the best part about this breakfast: sea salt.
On the underside [the top while the first side was cooking] I sprinkled a few chopped pecans and, on a whim, a bit of sea salt. TWINKLING idea!!! The hint of salt was fantastic!!
Topped with banana, sunflower butter, chia and coconut, these were so good!
Birthday Tea for yesterday’s birthdays
I’ve got a busy 48 hours followed by a holiday weekend 48 hours. We are CLOSED on Monday so that means Matt and I have two days off in a row!! Score! Lots of packing will be taking place. Our move is just a little over a week away. Not a single box has been packed. Artwork is still on the walls!
