The Casting Dock

a restful weekend


I had a little sicky this weekend.  Not super sick, just the initial oh-no-my-throat’s-sore-I-feel-it-coming kind of sick that makes you want to lounge around in an attempt to stave it off.  Luckily this sicky onset dovetailed nicely with a super restful weekend. 

Sunday was the epitome of a relaxing day.  Jer had to watch The Thin Red Line for a panel discussion that he will be participating in tonight at Gordon College, his lovely place of employment and our alma mater.  I perpetually bugged him with the camera, my poor, sick, workingish (do we consider watching a movie on your laptop in bed as working??!)-on-a-Sunday husband, thus producing the above look.  Jerry typically really struggles to know what facial expressions he’s making.  I know that sounds really…well…silly…but he can’t just produce a facial expression to match an emotion on the spot…his expressions are generally just not quite right in capturing the emotion.  An attempted sad face might look a little more petrified than sad, an attempted happy face might look a little more perplexed than happy…you get the idea.  Anyway, this picture captured exactly what I knew he was thinking at the time. Well done, Jerry.  And in my own defense, I put the camera down after that one. I’m not always a pest.

So although it wasn’t exciting, a restful Sunday morning with a book and cup of tea, followed by some delicious whole wheat broccoli pizza (thank you Trader Joes), and topped off by evening church and a pancakes-for-dinner fundraiser for said church’s college fall retreat was just what the doctor ordered.  Well, that and some Nyquil. Mmmm, Nyquil. I mayyyybe took a little too….it’s just so good.

Looking at broccoli pizza nauseates me. Consider I have no problem throwing down 24 oz of broccoli broth and 18 oz of boiled broccoli a day. But… on pizza? Are you out of your mind?

Broccoli Pizza?? Really? You have got to be kidding? You would actually buy that? In my wildest dreams I can’t imagine wanting to smell, more less eat that! It kind of ruins the idea of “pizza”! Now that I got that off my chest… I liked the pictures. Hope you are feeling better!

Believe it or not, we actually CHOSE to make broccoli pizza. We buy the whole wheat dough from Traders and almost always make broccoli pizza with it. It really is delish…and not just in the it’s-semi-healthy-for-me-so-I’m-going-to-pretend-it’s-delish type way. It tastes good! I saute up the broc with some onion and garlic first and then throw it all on…mmmm…I’ll have to make it for you sometime!

Thanks for reading…and commenting! :)
