I hope I never lose my sense of wonder. If that makes me naive, then so be it.

nothing to say ... well, maybe.

I didn't blog today because I was out all day and didn't really feel like I had anything to say.

Except, apparently, that.

Ok. Today was a whirl of errands for much of the day, then getting home to remember that I was going to bring a snack to home group tonight and I had nothing inspiring in mind to make. So back to the grocery store to grab premade angel food cakes, nectarines, and blueberries. I was walking through the produce aisle trying to make something up and those suggested themselves as likely candidates. On the way home I tried to put it together in my head. It turned into a sort of trifle, with the angel food cake on the bottom, the nectarines sliced and boiled for a bit with the blueberries and some sugar to make a nice juicy mess and then spread over said cake. After it chilled for a bit (in the fridge, not hanging out with friends) I spread sweetened whipped cream (the real thing, baby - no Cool Whip. It tastes so good you almost can forgive the 35% milk fat. Almost.) over the top. Fresh nectarine slices and blueberries topped it all off.

And oooh, it was yummy. The girls, knowing my knack for making stuff up in the kitchen and then forgetting just how I did it, asked several times "are you sure you'll remember how you made this?" Yup. A nice creation and it's a keeper. I love when it works out that way. Serendipity's rockstar hubby had two helpings, so either it was good or he was just being really polite.
