refrigerated pancakes and other real-life truths

So I made this delicious batch of pumpkin pancakes several weeks ago now, meaning to post the recipe for you right away. But I forgot to take pictures when they were fresh, so I took a couple the next day when they were a bit stiff and rubbery from the fridge (you can totally tell), then neglected to post them until now. Of course, I've since forgotten exactly how I modified my usual recipe to make them pumpkin-y and delicious. (It involved adding pumpkin, some spices, and a bit more flour. Sorry, that's all I can come up with tonight.)

In other real-life truths, I have a monster headache right now (the kind that comes along with a bit of nausea), the fire went out and I can't get it going again, apparently I have a disc issue in my back (so I shouldn't be crouching to get said fire going anyway), we have another health thing going on in our house that's occupying some brain space, and I'm behind where I'd like to be with work stuff.

I don't want you to think that my other, mostly happy posts aren't authentic - that's genuinely how I am the vast majority of the time. And tonight, although this is just as genuine, I know that it will pass, and the headache will most likely be gone come morning. I know how trivial these things are in the grand scheme of things. Just keepin' it real.

And so, I will take my current book (P.D. James again!) up to bed early, hopefully get a superb rest, and take tomorrow as it comes. Good night!


  1. Lady, we all have days/weeks like this. And why not share with friends?! I hope you're on the mend. I'm sending you a pocketful of best wishes to carry you through...

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I get a lot of flack sometimes when I post something negative because my website has happy in the title. It's amusing to me because I think people forget that I'm real and I do have emotions and my life isn't perfect all the time. I'm trying to be as real as I possibly can. Some days I'm dancing around, singing and laughing and you can hear me a mile away, some days I'm evil and whomever comes into contact with me feels my wrath but the next day I'm back to dancing in the kitchen again. I appreciate when my favorite bloggers tell me the truth.

  3. I'm sorry you're having a bad day. Hope your headache gets better very soon! I can so relate...I've had a bad week healthwise too. It's amazing how fast it can drag you down when you're feeling tired and achy for a few days. Here's to us both having a better next week :)
