Busy Week & Outrageous Brownies and Sick!

Really tired….and didn’t realize it….

This week sure has been busy.  I am again facilitating Personality Dimensions to many first year student classes.    This week I have 5 of them scheduled.  Two yesterday, one today, one Thursday and one on Friday.  Each session is almost 3 hours.  On top of that my regular work is busy.  I sure put in my time with lecturing in that workshop, then getting the students oriented on  using PD cards  to determine their preferred Temperament style.  Then we have a mass confusion while I try to get them into groups to work on some questions, they present to the class and then I tie it altogether for them.  In between that I run from front to back,  to side to back to front to side of the class, clarifying what it is they are doing.  Its rather crazy I think but I love it anyway.

Anyway…. After  6 hours of that yesterday I couldn’t wait to get home to have a soothing cup of tea and put my feet up.  At the time it never occurred to me that I really got home 2 hours later than usual as a result and it was too late for me to be drinking tea if I was going to plan on sleeping that night…  caffeine…

So I was up most of the night, wandering  around and blogging and crawling back to sleep and walking…you know?  It was not much fun.  Today I dragged myself through another busy day catching up and then I had a another late Personality Dimensions workshop and got home 2 hours later again. .   Somewhere between feeling tired and wanting to relax I had chocolate on my mind.  Somewhere I forgot the reason why I was sleepy when I decided I would make the 10 minute each way walk to the store for “exercise sake”, to buy chocolate for the Outrageous Brownies I was going to bake.  Back at home I changed into comfy clothes and started melting chocolate only to realize I had no flour!!!  I changed BACK into my outdoor clothes  and walked  my sore feet to a closer convenience store to buy the flour….so that’s why I forgot to take pics of the process of making these brownies I wanted to share with you….especially to show you allll the chocolate going into it!  This is the Outrageous Brownies recipe   full of all goodness!  Try it and if you do be sure to come back and let me know what YOU think.  YUMMMMY!

But…this is how they look coming out of the oven.  At  9:45 p.m. last night this is finally how all my dishes look after I’d cleaned up after mixing the brownies.    and like this   and this   …just a helter skelter of a wash….  It’s a bigggg pan of chocolate a whole 36 oz of chocolate … 3 different kinds and nuts too!  AND I can’t dare have a taste tonight because…caffeine..you know…I’d be up half the night again.   You know…sometimes you just forget how tired you are until you are realllly tired.    Nite nite….

update…now I never did post that last night.  I was just tooo tired!  Today I brought in a big plate of the brownies to share at work.  Soon after my tiredness and headachy and achey feelings of this week sprung on me and I realized I’ve been fighting some kind of “bug” thats been going around at work.   I came home and have been sleeping it off all afternoon.  I’m sitting here for a minute sending these pics to you and back to bed I go.  Nite nite again….

Hope YOU have had a lovely day.
