Don’t be confused. I realize it’s not Wednesday – thank goodness! – but I missed Waffle Wednesday yesterday [oh, the tragedy!], so I wanted to make up for it today. Waffles on a Thursday never hurt anyone, did they? Ya’ll, I’ve been having serious issues waking up on time lately. You see, I consider myself a very punctual person and I love my mornings [as you all know], but I can’t get my alarm to wake me up for the life of me! I’m pretty positive this has to do with the fact that I can never shut my eyes and turn off the 2 million thoughts running through my mind before midnight; thus, the oversleeping is my body trying to compensate for my late bedtimes. I’d appreciate your 2 cents…
I didn’t think it was pear season, but appearently organic d’anjou pears are growing somewhere this Spring. A beautiful breakfast is always a good way to start the day.
Low-Fat Multigrain Waffles [Van’s] + 0% Greek mixed with Agave-Honey Blend, 1/2 organic d’Anjou Pear + Almonds
…accompanied by organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea
Pears and almonds always remind me of my mom’s autumn pear crisp. I can picture sitting in front of our woodstove in a candle-lit living room with glistening raindrops decorating the windows eating a warm bowl of the soft, sweet ‘n’ spicy pears topped with crunchy oats and almonds . There isn’t anything more comforting than this thought.

I wish I had the time and mental energy to bake more, read more, and write more, but I’ve honestly got so many other tasks to do that will have more of an immediate effect on my life than my lack of blogging. The semester’s end is just around the corner, and I do not have my summer plans set – ah!
I only have 9 more days of class + finals! Between me and the end: 1 exam, 1 project and 6 – yes 6! – final examinations. Not to mention, I’m boarding a jet 1 week from today and will be gone for the entire weekend… and studying is not on my ‘vacation’ agenda. PEDAL to the MEDAL. I’m flooring it to the finish!
