Chocolate eclipse

I baked a cake on Sunday! Just a simple two layer dark chocolate from a box mix (Duncan Hines heeeey) with chocolate icing. It didn’t dawn on me at the time but hey look I kinda baked the moon of an eclipse! Anywaaaaay, I did that and some cleaning and I spent the rest of the day trying to be lazy because I had a rough early Sunday morning. (Headache, vomit – fun times!)

Have you ever tried this So Delicious yogurt alternative? I’ve been avoiding dairy (and gluten) as much as possible for a few months but I really missed yogurt. I’m not a fan of coconut milk but I do like this yogurt alternative, especially with fruit and granola. I don’t know why I am not a fan of coconut milk since I love coconut (almond joy! coconut cake!). I don’t really care for cows milk either, soooo, if I eat cereal I usually go for almond milk. This yogurt is really good though! So far I’ve had the strawberry banana and this key lime flavor. There’s also a peach and raspberry and I want to try the former but not the later.

On Monday my office fed us lunch (burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken breast, fries, salad, baked beans) and then everyone drifted over to a nearby park to watch the Eclipse. I honestly wasn’t really all that interested in seeing it but I’m glad I went along for the festivities. I had my Canon point and shoot camera with me and took pictures of the park crowd and coworkers but didn’t attempt an eclipse photo. I read several articles about taking pictures of an eclipse and knew there was a change I could damage the camera sensor. I wasn’t really interested in that since my point and shoot is what I take to concerts.

The one thing I did read was to use a pair of eclipse glasses placed over the camera lens but I didn’t have a spare pair and didn’t want to ask someone else to give up theirs. It was a nice midday break though! It’s not often you get to casually hang out with coworkers you don’t get to interact with on a regular basis.

Were you in a state where you could view the eclipse? Did you manage to watch or were you just “meh” about the whole thing?

Later y'all, Amanda
