Bullying ticks me right off..I can’t even handle it. I only have babies and I am petrified of sending them out into this scary world we live in. A teenager comitting suicide because of the terrible things said to them..what is it going to be like in 12 years, when I have kids in high school. (woah, ONLY 12…) They had another story on the news this morning about bullying. The girls’ mother even pulled her out of school, out of the town, and home-schooled her, but thanks to this wonderful/scary world of technology, they still had full access to this poor girl. And where the h*ll are their parents? How are you not involved in your child’s life enough to actually know what is going on? Be a pain in the ass, and get in there, monitor the heck out of your kids..KNOW everything.
I’m about to step off my soapbox, I just get sick thinking about these things. The poor parents who lost their daughter because of awful, mean girls. Bullying is murder..and yes, I know that’s a strong statement, but it’s been proven time and time again, words are the most hurtful weapon there is…please know what your kids are always doing..
On a lighter note, we’re halfway through October..WHAT? It’s like its going to be Christmas tomorrow..I’m seeing Christmas trees and decorations everywhere, and it hasn’t even been Halloween yet. WHY are they rushing the seasons!? Life already goes fast enough, lets enjoy the moment!
I think I’m just getting neurotic about time because my youngest is starting to walk, and I feel like I just brought him home from the hospital yesterday! For real, WHERE did the last ten months go? My little baby is turning into a little boy and there isn’t a darn thing I can do about it. Hugging him tighter and tighter every day..
So! Pumpkin Gruyere Walnut Focaccia Bread. Holy hell is this stuff gooooood. Or as my dad said “this bread tastes very gourmet.” He wasn’t kidding. A savory pumpkin and Gruyere focaccia, topped with more cheese and chopped walnuts..the flavors, the textures…is alllll there. And its all so, so amazing.
It’s not any more work than any other yeast bread..and its completely worth every minute. It’s not even a lot of hands on time..just waiting for it to rise..always the hardest part. I LOVE the smell of fresh warm dough. This bread is so amazing. Do it up!
