I haven’t had an entire week off since about July 2012 (before I started my full-time internship in early August 2012). I’m a bit of a control freak and a worrier so I never like to take time off and detatch from work. I had used about five of my twenty vacation days so far when I realized it was late September and I could only carry over 5 of those remaining days, I decided to take this week off and do nothing.
Well, I took this week off, but I didn’t do nothing, technically. I slept in most days to 8am (a good two hours later than I usually sleep!), which was nice. I kept track of my work email on my phone and as far as I could tell, no shit was hitting the fan at all. Which was nice. Very nice.
I decided a couple of months ago to see if I could go stay with my aunt, uncle, and cousin at their house in Freeport, Maine for a weekend. They said “of course!” I took the train up to Boston on Thursday, where my aunt was in town for business, and we drove back together. Over the past four days I did:
I had an excellent time. I’ll post pictures of food and the concert later. Now it’s back to real life!
I love going to Jordan's blog to look for new, easy recipes to try. Since I was homebound today and feeling indulgent, I decided to make her “5-Minute Chocolate-Banana Cream Pie.” It really did take just five minutes to make, after which I let it sit in the fridge for about half an hour to “set.”
1. Slice up one and a half bananas and line the bottom of a pie crust.
2. Prepare the pudding with skim or whole milk and spread on top of the bananas.
3. Cover with Cool-Whip and then cover with chocolate chips or sprinkles, or whatever you like. I used multi-colored candies for Gay Pride Weekend.
4. Let set in the fridge for half an hour, then enjoy! Yum.
