"Maycomb was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it. Somehow, it was hotter then. Men's stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon after their three o'clock naps. And by nightfall were all like soft teacakes with frosting from sweating and sweet talcum. The day was twenty-four hours long, but seemed longer."
-Harper Lee To Kill a Mockingbird
This quote sums up life right now. In my case "sweet talcum" is bread flour, but still, the quote applies.
I have been using the heat to my advantage lately by turning my apartment into a hot yoga studio. This is easily done because the apartment is technically a single room studio and it is effing hot inside. I'm making lemonade people. The other day, after yoga-ing, I made myself a blueberry muffin inspired smoothie. It was hands down the best decision I made all day.
How great is this mug?! I got it for Jeff because he loves monkeys. Until it is legal for us to get one as a pet, this mug will have to do.
This muffin-smoothie is made with (among other things) frozen blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla, honey and old fashioned oats. It is a winner and perfect for summer.
