Things I would bring up if I had called you up and said, "Hey, let's go get some breakfast this morning.":
1.) My rogue eyebrow hair. On my left eyebrow I have a rogue hair that grows in the opposite direction as the other hairs, thus causing it to stick straight out. Part of me doesn't want to take care of it because I admire it's plucky attitude.
2.) The jam I made over the weekend. I've only ever made freezer jam but its shelf life isn't long enough for me and I end up throwing away half the container because I can't eat it fast enough. So I decided that this year I was going hard core and making cooked jam, with the glass jars and the sterilizing and everything. Because this is exactly what 80 year old women do. So I headed down to Chino, which everyone knows has the best strawberries, and I took over my parents kitchen and I made jam. And it is delicious, my friends. It's a good thing the mouth of the jar is so small because I would be tempted to stick my whole face in it. If we had gone to breakfast this morning I would have brought you a jar of your very own.
3.) The lesson I taught yesterday in Sunday School about the Word of Wisdom convinced me that I should make a salad for lunch and how I'm really sad about it because even though I always enjoy a good salad (this one has avocado, and what's not to love about that) I never actually look forward to eating a salad. And there is nothing sadder than not being excited about your lunch.
4.) Katie and I walked out of church yesterday to sunshine. SUNSHINE!!!! I know you're all thinking, "Duh, Rachel. California!" Yeah, and that would be true, except that we have had gloomy, cloudy, drizzly, stinky weather for weeks. Weeks, I tell you! I suppose I should appreciate that fact that it isn't 100 degrees yet but when I walked outside yesterday and felt the sun and saw my shadow I felt like skipping to my car. Except that I was wearing shoes that don't facilitate skipping very well and opted for skipping in my heart.
5.) How much I love going out for breakfast and I think we should do it more often.
Post Lunch Addendum: My salad was actually super awesome and hit the spot and I plan on making the same one for lunch tomorrow. And looking forward to it. (Spinach, tomatoes, avocado, chicken, gorgonzola, strawberries, balsamic dressing. It needs some crunch though. Maybe cashews.)
