Every month I get in my car
drive downtown to pay my water bill,
and every time I FORGET
what street to turn on….
It’s not like it’s a new thing.
I go every month to the exact same office.
I blame it on SAHM mush brain.
That or it is probably just old age creeping in
at an alarmingly fast pace!
Yesterday was “pay the water bill” day,
and yup, you guessed it.
I got down there and second guessed myself,
and sure enough, turned on the wrong one.
The thing is…
as soon as I passed the right street I knew:-)
Now I could avoid this whole thing
and just put it in the mail,
but I usually have library books to return
or errands to run,
so why not just swing on by there too:-)
Now I wish that I could FORGET
about my peanut butter and chocolate love affair!!!
I have a diet confession for you!
(hangs head in shame)
The other night I was working on some flowers for my shop
when I heard it calling out to me
in a sweet sing songy voice.
“Please come dip a spoon into my yummy chocolatey goodness!”
What you have never had chocolate frosting talk to you????
Hhhhhmmmm, like I said old age is catching up to me fast!
(I might end up in the loony bin sooner than I think)
Anyway, I walked right to the kitchen,
got out a spoon,
and scooped out 1 spoonful.
(I was planning on being good)
Then I turned around
and the pantry door was wide open!
It was like angels singing or something
and there was a glow of light coming from
the peanut butter and marshmallow cream jars!!!
I lost all self control
and went crazy!!!
Let me tell you that a spoonful of
fudge frosting, peanut butter, and marshmallow cream…
HEAVEN on a spoon ♥
So then all I could dream about was somehow pairing those flavors
into some sort of delicious goodness!!!
And these bar cookies is the result of my diet fail…
see some good came out it right?
Plus I got to send them away to a dinner right away
so that I couldn’t stuff my face again…
