Happy Weekend!

I hope that you have a happy weekend!
(Whatever it is that you will be doing!)

The E. Bunny...just chillin' before he makes his rounds. I'd guess his feet get awful tired with all that thumping.

Not sure how humane this is, but admittedly, it looks cool.

Ducklings are adorable no matter how you swing it.




Taste #6: Craving...Pretzels

This weekend I drove through a bit of Pennsylvania and upon crossing the state line, I stated thinking about German pretzels. Hmm... I don't know that this has ever happened before, but it did and that is how I knew I probably needed to fulfill a craving (some cravings are silly, this one, I took very seriously).

Perhaps I was primed by the fact that when my brother was visiting last weekend, I finally noticed (good thing!) the pretzel shop around the corner from my apartment (literally, around the corner. Right around). Sigmund Pretzel Shop.


I wanted to try it with my brother, but there were just too many culinary attractions that we had to attend to in the city to fit in some soft pretzels (and into our jeans). So how good can a soft pretzel really be you ask?

Really, really, really good... I'm not hating on street vendor pretzels, but the pretzels at Sigmunds are the real deal and definitely worth the trip (if it's not around the corner from you), the price ($3.50 per pretzel) and the carb overload.

*Each pretzel comes with a free dip of your choice, and they have a lot of choices: whipped butter, wholegrain mustard, honey mustard, beet-horseradish mayo, herb goat cheese, cream cheese, nutella


This is the adorable woman that got my pretzel all ready for me to consume. I think she fits right in there and makes it that much more of an enjoyable experience!

They have pretzel sandwiches which are also divine. Fortunately, I have an adventurous and lovely roommate that likes to try new things with me. We do a lot of splitting of things to maximize tasting and stomach space.

Pretzel flavors: salted, caraway, poppy, sesame, jalapeno cheddar, gruyere paprika, seven chile, garlic parsley, cinnamon raisin, caramel pecan...

All At Sea...

Some days I think it would be nice to just sail away...knowing that eventually you will come back...but just take a break for a while. Today is one of those days. Then I think about pirates and how I don't actually know how to sail and hope that someday I will learn and also make friends with any pirates I might encounter.

I'm all at sea

Where no-one can bother me
Forgot my roots
If only for a day
Just me and my thoughts sailing far away
Like a warm drink it seeps into my soul
Please just leave me right here on my own
Later on you could spend some time with me
If you want to
All at sea...

All at sea
I'm all at sea
Where no-one can bother me
I sleep by myself
I drink on my own
Don't speak to nobody
I gave away my phone...

Now I need you more than ever, I need you more than ever, now
You don't need it every day
But sometimes don't you just crave
To disappear within your mind
You never know what you might find
So come and spend some time with me
We will spend it all at sea...

We will spend it all at sea
Like a warm drink it seeps into my soul
Please just leave me right here on my own
Later on you could spend some time with me
If you want to
All at sea...

-Jamie Cullum

Lovely song.



Sleep has been interesting as of late.
