Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

a few random pics from yesterday...........

Our Tree......


Cinderella snow globe that Santa brought in her stocking.....

Her "pile" from Santa..... believe it or not, it's just all Easy Bake Oven and it's accessories..... looks like much more than it is!

It was a great relaxing Christmas where fun was had by all. I missed my family, but I'll see them soon!

PostHeaderIcon Xmas Cookies (sorta)

We made these penguins instead of holiday cookies for santa......... it was the project of my 5yo, and I think it wasn't too shabby.

It was her idea that the coconut was to be "snow"

We used....large marshmellows dipped in melted chocolate, let that dry than used a little melted choco to attach an upside down PB Cup on it's head

Then used a knife to cut a little slit in the front so she could attach a candy corn nose

two pecans underneath were the feet

not sure how much of a recipe that is... but that's how it was done.....santa loved them!!!!!

I'm sure with a little more care and a little older kid, they would have turned out not quite as lopsided, but she was VERY proud!

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
