I can drink coffee, sing the ABC’s, towel dry a rain soaked dog, help dress one of my two children, and with my third hand flip pancakes, but I break a sweat if I try to read two books at the same time. Obviously not simultaneously reading two books at the same time, you understand. I can juggle two magazines if one of them is complete fluff like Better Homes & Gardens (no offense BH&G) but I would rather read one thing at a time. It is just how I roll.
When I started blogging, I about went into conniptions when I learned how to subscribe to blogs and the number that I started following breached my semi-comfort level of two. I do not follow a whole lot of blogs because I actually want to read them and usually comment on them. And it causes me great angst if I have a lot of unread posts sitting there waiting for me. All this reading and commenting takes time, as you are well aware.
Quite often I find a blog that amuses me or peaks my interest. I comment on it but don’t follow it hoping I will find my way back. Sometimes the writers of these blogs come visit mine and leave a comment or join my happy little band of followers (you are happy, right?). This is awesome because I can easily find them again and it does not cause me follower-stress. Plus I love getting comments and new followers, but that kinda goes without saying. So I was quite happy to rediscover an amazing looking peanut butter fudge brownie recipe the other day when this link showed up in my site stats under the referrer section. True to form I had commented on this particular blog post back in August and then promptly forgot about it.

Oh my! I had plans to go grocery shopping and clean the house today but perhaps I should drop all those bothersome plans and make these instead. I get a sugar rush just looking at the pictures you posted!!
Well, you see I did not drop all those bothersome plans and go off and make these delicious looking treats because I am not very good at being spontaneous. I want to be and I am envious of those that are but it is just not me. So in the spirit of wanting to be spontaneous I am going to plan to be spontaneous (shhh, I can hear you mocking me!) and make sure I have all the ingredients when I go to the store today. That way when I have an hour to kill and feel up to baking with the boys I will be all ready to spontaneously bust out with some peanut butter fudge brownies. Only you will know that it is not true spontaneity but I trust you won’t tell anybody.
Since I have now written this post and included the link to said recipe there is little fear of me losing it again. On the second thought it may have been easier to just print the recipe and put it on my kitchen counter. Had I done that you would not have had this lovely blathering post of mine to read and I would not have had the enjoyment and satisfaction of writing such a post. So I guess it is a win-win for all of us. Plus you too now have this fantastic looking recipe to try for yourself during a moment of spontaneity (planned or otherwise.)
