Saturday: Delicious Waffles (name of the recipe in the church cookbook) in our new waffle maker! Yum. Then we went to the Farmer's Market, and then off on an adventure with Kate. First to Northglenn to buy a Craigslist turkey fryer for James. Not for turkeys, but homebrew. He's pretty happy. Then we went hiking in a Jeffco Open Space, White Ranch Park. Great day for hiking, and it wasn't too strenuous and still beautiful.
Pretty, isn't it?
And we found this amazing beetle trying to camouflage on my blue shirt (edit: it's a species of Pleasing Fungus Beetle)
After the hike, James and I were seriously craving pizza, so we made possibly the best homemade pizza we've ever made, using my mom's crust recipe, "homemade" sauce (crushed tomatoes with spices added in), diced sweet orange pepper, spinach, mushrooms, and cheese). We ate while sipping a new homebrew and watching The Office, followed by the movie Adventureland. Both were definitely enjoyable.
Sunday: Woke up at 4 am and couldn't sleep. At 5 am, my chest began to feel tight/heavy, I was lightheaded, and felt like I couldn't breathe deeply. I still feel about the same, but less panicky. I'm assuming it's a lovely combo of sleep deprivation, dehydration (I drank homebrew last night and didn't worry about replenishing water after the hike in the sun), and psychological effects. Hopefully all will improve. We did meal planning, grocery shopping, Community & Parks and Recreation watching, and now James is doing laundry. Our plans to freeze roasted chiles are foiled, as I feel don't feel great, and neither do the friends we were planning to freeze them with. Bummer. Back to work tomorrow, but there's still dinner to look forward to! It might involve the grass fed organic ground beef in our fridge. Thanks for the sale, Whole Foods!
