It's one of those days. No reason that it should be different from yesterday or tomorrow. It should be an anticipation-filled day, what with a hot date in the evening's forecast.
Yet, unfortunately the excitement originally felt by the decision and execution of the age increase, along with the jitters from a couple referrals (which actually affect us) are both long gone.
I find there's a fine line between seeking and waiting with anticipation for more referrals and feeling the guilt of greed. And, I think it's a legitimate guilt. So, here I find myself in quite the conundrum. Wanting more yet feeling guilty for not continuing to be thankful for the couple recently realized.
The youngest requested the creation of Banana Cookies. And, while I'd never heard of such a thing, the object of the game currently is: distraction of any shape, sort, or kind.
Plus, there is truly nothing a girl can't google and then alter.
The outcome was actually quite successful. The task somewhat time consuming. The recipe healthy. The activity kid friendly. The morning enjoyable.
Healthy Banana Cookies
3 ripe mashed bananas
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup oil
cinnamon & nutmeg & salt
Bake at 400 on non-greased cookie sheets for 5 minutes, remove from oven and press down gently with fork. Continue to bake for 8 minutes or until they begin to brown. We made 24.
And now the ache has returned so it's off to find more to fill the void, to seek fulfillment from Above, to be content in the here and now.
