I made mini smores in the oven.  They turned out quite nice.  
I've found myself reading a lot of books lately... my favorite past-time. 
I also have been writing in between.
The kitten got hit by a car a few days ago and so it's been quite the week.  :-(  However, I am doing better now.  I believe I will see her in Heaven again, because she only beheaded three birds tops.

The amino acid named tryptophan was the happiest of the 22 acids today.  Hopefully, you got your fair share of it.  If you didn't, you have 21 other acids cheering your name.  If it was me, we'd all be celebrating this day of thanks with enchiladas!  Forget the pumpkin, in this household we have coconut cream pie!
Hope you had a good day, where ever you may be.  Xo

May the force be with you, too.

It snowed today.
I shoveled the snow.
Half way through, neighbor started to shovel theirs via four-wheeler.
Every time I'd nail a crack in the driveway, which resulted in the self inflicted Heimlich maneuver, I'd resist the urge to shout over the fence, "You win!"

Well, you know what they say, "When life gives you ice, make ice cream."
So I did.

My grandma used to make snow {ice} cream for my mom, and my mom made it for us growing up.
The best recipes just state the ingredients and then let you wing it until it's good.
I dyed the ice cream sea foam green!!  I support all forms of artificial coloring.
Side note:  I made (future) his and her mugs last night.  
Mug one reads - May the force be with you.
Mug two reads - May the force be with you, too.

4.5 things..

I've learned exactly 4.5 things the last three days..
1.  Voting is cool, even the second time around.
2.  Corn Huskers Lotion isn't just for people who shuck corn.  It's also for 22 year old girls who wash their hands a lot.
3.  Phone chargers must be plugged in before any charging will ensue.
4.  Vintage dresses are my best friend.  Not diamonds.
.5  It's a half point because I already knew it, but had forgotten that I love glitter.
