Nothing special Crepes

Yesterday was a hard day. I was stressed out over a doctors appointment just trying to confirm it and long story short it never happened.Whatever. I’m working at not allowing those moment to give me stress…thus a stress headache. Didn’t work yesterday…had a headache all day long. So much so that last night I went to bed at 8pm and didn’t wake till almost 8am. I can’t believe I slept that long. It was glorious. Too wonderful for words. 12 hours of sleep…*sigh…so good. I guess my body really needed it. But stupid Ibuprofen didn’t work at all…time to choose a different med.

I woke this morning in a good mood, no headache like yesterday, and so I decided to make crepes for breakfast. A sort of celebration. I am deciding today will be a good day.

Emma loves them and since they don’t take too much time to make…I made them. Regular old crepes. No special zest or flavors or anything special. Just milk, flour, eggs and a bit of sugar. Amazing how common normal things make one’s day.

I grew up in a house where we put corn syrup on our crepes. Trav nearly gags when he sees me pull out the bottle from the pantry but ‘to each his own’, right?! He can use his nasty grape jelly (which is the worst jelly ever made). So this morning Emma and I had wonderful plain crepes with corn syrup. Such a great start to the day.

I let Emma help stir, because she’s become obsessed with wanting to help me in the kitchen. Only a little flour fell out. She’s a natural with a whisk in her hand. :)

Heck, I even have energy to clean. Which is INCREDIBLE. It does help that today the sun is shinning… Who cares if we have a high chance of hail, wind and rain this afternoon. Maybe I should make a sour cream coffee cake in my new Bundt pan! Oh so excited! (Lamo I know, but hey, humor me) I might even watch Persuasion.
