A couple of great recipes

I have come across some really great recipes lately!! Alas, when I am cooking, I am not always so inclined to take photos either before, during or after. So, I have no photos to share, but all the blogs where I get my recipes from have beautiful photos, so why add my own? :o)

Waldorf First Grade - Vowels

These are the vowel fairies. As per usual in a Waldorf classroom, the teacher draws the images beautifully on the chalkboard and the children draw their own into their main lessons books. These are the vowel fairies that were introduced in language arts. And immediately, the vowels go missing.

Well, who knew that something in a little glass bottle could really transform one's look! Recently, I've re-discovered by Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer and I always get compliments when I wear it!

The 6-year old challenge

My child is a 6-year old challenge. We've been having quite a bit of back talk from her, general not listening and a lot of hot flashes. Well, it all sort of came to a head when we spent a good 10 days with the family. The cousins, there are two that sort of flank D on both ends - one is 6 one is 9. Both girls listen quite well...and D doesn't so much or at least she hasn't been lately.

Santy Claus

I am a big fan of keeping up with the fantasy! I love fairies. I love maintaining my child's belief in fairies, Santa Claus...

If you are too, then don't ever play "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"! Ummm, yeah. That song came on the other day in the car and D's asking, "How come the kid saw mommy kissing Santa Claus??" Err..umm.

I told her it was because it was the elves singing that song and because Mrs. Claus takes such good care of them, they consider her mommy. :o)  Nice save, right?

I juiced some beets the other morning. THREE beets to be exact, threw in a couple carrots, ginger and a bit of lemon. I drank that thing up and 15 minutes later, I felt very nauseous...and then vomited! All my beet juice just went down the drain. Literally.

Act, Don't React

Well...it's been a while since I've written. Didn't mean to get so far behind but life can get craaazzy sometimes.

Anyhooo, "Act, Don't React" was a quote I got from my Yogi Tea a few weeks back. At the time, I read it and thought, "Wow. That is really pertinent right now." That morning, I had had a not so pretty incident with the babes and wanting her to do something that she wasn't willing to do. I had already looked back upon the incident and saw how I could've approached the situation in a more positive way, and was feeling kind of bad and kind of guilty...and then I get this quote. Wow, right?
