anticipation perhaps?

hello darlings! how has this week treated you? i'm so happy that it is finally the weekend-but not so happy that school starts on does my house make-over. i suppose the nice thing about pipes bursting is getting new floors in the kitchen, and new paint in the living room.
from the interweb: 
the cutest tumblr i've seen in my life called: to my wife. he writes the things he will and will not do for his future wife. can i marry this man right now?

yummy recipe from YOU+ME:

Spicy Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon & Honey

1 head of cauliflower, cut into stemmed florets (about 4 cups)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. finely chopped parsley

Pre-heat the oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, toss the florets with a tablespoon or so of the olive oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Grease a jelly roll-style cookie sheet (or shallow roasting pan) with a bit more olive oil. Spread the florets out in one layer on the prepared pan.

Roast the cauliflower for 30-45 minutes, until it is cooked through and dark brown - even black - in most spots. Trust me.

In the meantime, whisk together the lemon juice, honey and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Whisk in a tablespoon of oil and set aside.

Once the cauliflower is roasted to your liking, remove the pan from the oven and place the cooked cauliflower in a large bowl. Pour the lemon dressing over the hot cauliflower. Toss with the lemon zest, crushed red pepper, parsley and a pinch of salt. Mix well, taste and adjust for seasonings, and serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 3-4 as a side.

the thoughts that rattle in my brain:
what is it about today? my stomach grumbles for something, but i know not what. i don't wish to walk outside, but i'm restless indoors. my hand yearns to be held. my head yearns to have a shoulder to rest upon. monday is approaching and pressing on my heavy heart. i want to simultaneously speed and slow the time in a sort of ebb and flow manner, just to my liking.

i recall feeling this way before. and then there was a time when i was blissful and content. what's changed? something so subtle only i can feel it.

some pretty photos i took the other day:

 have a good weekend!
