headed for disaster?

fiery crash
lyrics from the above-named andrew bird song:

replace “vinyl settee” with “call-room mattress” and this pretty much sums up my fate for the evening, i’m afraid. the CRASH is coming, and i don’t know how to avoid it! i just can’t seem to sleep during the day during this rotation, even though i know i’m going to pay for it tonight — not to mention tomorrow AM.

on the positive side, just 3 more overnights left before i get a reprieve.

midnight baking
the fact that i cannot sleep when i am supposed to does have one advantage: i can get a lot done. such as the crafting of these california fruit bars for hangry heather and reader sharon.

i’m glad they didn’t end up having to shell out actual $ for these bars because i might have felt more pressure to remake them since they didn’t turn out super-pretty!

while they lack a bakery-perfect appearance, they are gooey and delicious. taste-tasted and approved by josh + moi.

100% organic and packed with nutty, fruity goodness!
oh, and speaking of nutty, fruity goodness

love it.
