I made granola bars again. I’m not sure why I am so into granola bars, but I am. I wish I could tell you how to make these, but they are 95% this recipe (but with peanut butter) and 5% this recipe (millet). I served them with bacon and eggs and the boys seemed to love them. I think I planned to take them camping, but I forgot to pack them (along with the butter, coffee and various snacks). They did come in handy as an afternoon snack mid-week when we were completely out of food. In other news, there are 4 left and it’s been a week. I can’t tell if this means they aren’t that great or, since I am storing them in the fridge, it’s an out of sight out of mind situation. Luke seems to love them when they are offered. He doesn’t seek them out.
Granola bars aren’t super photogenic, and the lighting in my house is not ideal, especially after dinner on a Thursday night. I decided to photograph them with a stack of books because it’s been a while since I did that and… I am about to reach an exciting book milestone. The Boulder Library does an optional reading history which I LOVE. It’s a list of all the books I have checked out since October 1, 2005. I looked at it this morning and I was at 988. Then I checked out two more books and I am still at 988 so I am not 100% sure how it works, maybe there is some batch process that runs at night? Regardless, I think something exciting should happen when I hit 1000. Maybe I could plan an entire day of drinking coffee while lying in the couch, reading. Or, I could read at a fancy coffee shop, or maybe even at a bar. Obviously reading would have to be a part of it. Maybe I’ll also pay off my fine. I know, it sounds so exciting!! The real question is – should I plan to check out a special book for my 1000th book? Or just let it be random? What book should I check out? 10 or 12 books to go, will I reach 1000 before the end of the year? That picture up there doesn’t even show all the books I have currently checked out, so I think I’ll make it.
