Date night, a painting project, and banana bread

Friday night, while our friends with tween girls sat through a One Direction concert at the football stadium we ventured to a smaller venue to catch a Peter Frampton concert.  Admittedly, I do not love him, but I can sit through an enjoyable evening of his music.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Kevin is a fan and had wanted to see him play since he was teen.  It made for a great date night.

Saturday we watched college football and I started to paint my desk.  A lack of creativity and a desperate need to paint the darn thing cornered me into a warm white that will help open up the space.  I often use my desk to style photos, so the neutral background will be an asset.  It got me thinking about painting a set of vertical file cabinets the same color and dressing them up a bit with gold handles.

Sunday the temperatures dropped to a comfortable mid 70’s with little humidity making it feel like fall in Florida. Unfortunately, the cool temps won’t last and humidity is due back by week’s end. Too honor the beginning of fall, I whipped up a chocolate banana bread.  Well, Kevin’s desire to bring in a breakfast treat for an early morning project meeting prompted my baking a bit more than cooler temperatures.  We can blame it on the weather though can’t we?

It’s such a simple recipe too, and oh so very good!
