Sundays in My City--The Edition Where I Confuse Myself

Today I'm linking up with Unknown Mami's Sundays in My City. This is normally supposed to have pictures of things going on in my part of the world, but I have no pictures. It's been that kind of day....
Also, I linked up to Elizabeth Esther's Saturday Evening Blog Post today. I shared my African Travel Truths post. Why did I link up to a Saturday Blog party on Sunday. I have no earthly idea. I'm upside down and inside out today.

Yesterday morning as Tom and I were slowly waking (oh, do I love Saturdays) his stomach growled loudly. After I giggled he explained that the reason he was so hungry was because he had dreamed of standing in a long line at the doughnut shop in the mall but by the time he got to the counter they were all out and were only selling meat. He was so disappointed in his dream and of course in real life too.

So, being the wonderful wife that I am (ha ha), I whipped up a batch of homemade doughnuts for breakfast today.
I set the dough to rise, did my 3 mile walk and then came back and fried and glazed the little suckers. 
I could have a picture of the doughnuts but I did that last year and this year I was too distracted.

In related news: I gained back 1.5 pounds this week. I was all set to blame my cycle but Tom had the exact same gain. Weird!
This is where I could have a nice picture of my shrinking belly but sadly neither the picture nor the shrinking belly exists.

This morning as I dropped Sara off at the nursery so I could simultaneously go for my walk and make doughnuts, she began fussing for her bottle. While the nanny prepared the bottle I asked Johnny to rock Sara's chair and sing to her. He did and sang so sweetly the alphabet song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
This is where I would have a picture inserted of a sweet little child rocking a bitty baby, but the only picture taken was captured and stored in my heart.

Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone!


  1. Sounds like you had a good Sunday! Today is just the morning of my Sunday, I hope its as sweet. Praying that you all have a good week in Zambia.

  2. You make some amazing looking donuts.

  3. I think that's probably a really good idea if one were to make donuts - start the process then go for a really long walk. What you didn't mention was how many miles it takes to walk off a batch of donuts LOL

    Have a great day!

  4. How sweet that you made donuts after he told you about the dream!!
    I'm excited to have found your blog (via Unknown Mami) - looking forward to reading more!

  5. Those "pictures" were beautiful...and it's probably a good thing you didn't have pics of the doughnuts, I would have gained 1.5lbs just seeing them!

  6. I bet you will lose that 1.5 this week..could be water retention.
