Well, I have you beat (though I know there are others here who can best my age) I'll be 45 in June...so not quite yet 44 1/2.

Sometimes I kinda forget my age...having a 2 yo can woo me into thinking I'm still in my 30s.

Clay --
So happy that you got the coat you wanted! My poor husband is always so flabbergasted about what to get me...so usually I pick something for myself.

I admit to drawing a big red circle around this particular coat and these particular boots as a wish list type thing. DH is pretty thin on the present front too.

Ooops... poor Ro. Still sick as a bean can be. She's fine by day but at night... not so much. Time to go sooth again.

Ah well, we'll get an exchange and I'll have a mini gift later.

But yay for warm snuggly durable coats!
Oh how nice! Sounds snuggly I haven't had need of a real winter coat in 10yrs now lol.

Hehe great pics I STILL remember, 21yrs later, coming downstairs one morning to find a moose staring at me through my kitchen window.. the window was a good 6feet off the ground due to a full basement. I just stood and looked at him... and he looked at me We very often had moose snacking on the trees around our townhouse ... we lived on the AF base so and there were tons living on back of the base and whent he snow got really deep, they came to eat our shrubs in housing instead

Clay- good job dh! Sometimes they totally get it don't they? n

DOK- trying to think of a different substitute. Just ain't the same, is it?
Looking forward to getting my package of pretty bamboo utensils.

Moose- the girls were rather impressed with the pic!

We took Erin to the ER last night. We were getting ready to get our pictures taken when she tripped in her nice fluffy towel and feel face down. She cut her lip pretty bad and we couldn't see if she had injured her teeth and how bad the cut really was, so a trip to the ER was needed. She is fine, a bit banged up, but already healing. I am singing the praises of arnica this morning!

Oh no! Poor munchkin! I'm glad she's ok but oh dear for the family photo!

Tor stuck his finger in his eye so it's all bloodshot... breastmilk will fix it up I know, but right now he looks a bit ouchie. My eyes water just looking at his!

We're hoping to get our holiday photo done this weekend... I want to line the kids up, each holding a word. You know "Peace""on""Earth", or "JOY""to the""World". Or just the letters J O Y or something. But I can't find the camera! It's gone missing.

Good Morning!

Cari- I'm in Santa Rose right now. Any ideas for fun cheap things to do with the kiddos? Kids are 3 1/2 & 5 1/2. There's a fun park we're hitting today.

Oops...I'll be right back

Aeress- Poor Erin. Glad it's not too serious, but ouch It's time for a family picture for us. We were hoping to get one during a visit to a pumpkin patch, but it didn't work out. Hope you get a nice pic. Maybe with a story to go along with it.

Wombat- Sounds like a nice birthday. Yay on your coat and boots! My DP is great, but there have been times that things have been circled, and I still get some strange something that I'll never know what to do with. Like tech stuff...umm....he likes tech stuff. lol He is much better these days though.

M3M- I'm really looking forward to my 40's. That's when I'm expecting my NGASB (is that right?) to grow in.

Liza-S- Wow that moose! I've seen a few moose before, but never that big. It must be magical living where you do.

Sorry I'm not looking back far enough to give credit, but The Big Comfy Couch was great. I put it on for the littles yesterday. Thanks!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend. I'm feeling pulled to journal, so I think I'll try to make some space for that.

Clay - glad to hear your birthday was awesome!! Your holiday picture sounds lovely

Aeress - sorry to hear about the ER trip! Ouch! However, I'm glad she is doing well!

Lisa S - a moose! I don't see them around here (very big city) however, when we visit family up north, it is very common...bears too (and sometimes they are in the school yards).

I'm feeling like a real youngin' here...I'll be 25 on December 6th. Ah well!

DH took DD to the daddy and me play group at the military family resource centre - he is actually the one running the group! It's great to have him involved in things like this. Since he's been gone, I've had the chance to look up activities for DD and I to do this week. I am trying to get things a little more structured because I'm not super creative (and the homeschool board is a wonderful place for ideas or resources!)

I go to the clinic this week to get a swab to see if I have an infection. I will also get a referral to a fertility specialist so they can tell me if my one remaining fallopian tube is blocked. If it is, then IVF is our option and our provincial health plan covers the procedure but not the medication (so I have to check out private health insurance).

I am also excited because next weekend, I am hosting a doula training course! It should be fantastic!

Yay! It snowed Not sure if this is the snow that will stay, but oh, the white sunlight off it is pretty! We are into what I think of as winter light here now....all the trees are bare and sun is positioned differently so we get bright, full intense sunlight with a white quality shining in ...wish I had a good rainbow making crystal hung up somewhere....

What a great idea! My camera goes missing, too. Then I find it with lots of photos from a three-year-old angle. Once, I had to delete about 20 pictures of a Dora dvd being played. Lots of sofa corners and the floor with one sock, etc.

Hooray for new coats! I have put dh on notice that if he doesn't replace his 12 year-old coat with the broken zipper by the solstice, I am getting him one for Xmas. I really hope he picks one himself. I hate shopping the last minute sales Though it looks like we are having a warmish winter here, so we may have a good selection of heavy coat then.

I have three winter coats -- my thrifted cashmere swing dress coat (which I am wearing tonight for our date night ), my thrifted very warm long brown down coat, which gets pulled out when the temp drops below minus 15 or 20 celcius, and a very dirty light blue down coat that I was wearing everyday and that will never come clean. I just thrifted a navy blue one for everyday for all of $12. Not down or wool, though. We'll see if it holds up.

I make yogurt cheese! It is the main thing I use my jelly bag for. I like it with raspberry spread blended in or on toast with apple butter. And I add the whey to bread dough as a dough conditioner, or to oatmeal, which I try to soak overnight TF style.

Glad Erin is healing well, Aeress! Were the pictures to be taken at home, or a portrait sitting?

Glad you enjoyed the Big Comfy Couch, femme rouge. My dd had a Molly doll when she was 3 that she carried everywhere..... I should play it for my littles -- I don't think they remember it and it never was ubiquitous like the Dora/Diego franchise.

Overheard my 3 year old and another discussing in depth what they would do if Swiper came to their houses and that had me I find the licensed characters irritating most of the time, but there is something to be said for shared culture...It'd be way cooler if they were plotting against Puck or Coyote, but at least they know what a trickster *is* and have some ideas on how to manage one.

Yep. I still have to tell my dh about that. He'll laugh because I so have one now and I so did not used to have one.


I love that your dh runs a daddy-child playgroup, singin angel. That is so cool.

A close family member did IVF, which our province does not cover at all, so it was a huge budget hit, but she had healthy twins first shot Sending clear-tube vibes so that you don't have to go that route. I'm sure you know how good your odds would be at your age, though, if you end up taking that path...

I am about as enthusiastic about being in a theatre full of screaming Edward fans as Charlie would be.

I think dh and I are going to see Men who Stare at Goats tonight. It is "frugal date night" -- found dinner-and-a-movie coupons we'd forgotten about. Looking forward to what looks like a very funny and totally quirky movie. It was that in our local theatre, or Twilight, or 2012. I've seen the world destroyed before....

That is some moose, Liza. Sending today-is-a-good-day-to-be-born vibes your way!

Hi everyone!

I'm finally almost all healed from H1N1. I'm down to an ear infection and the remnants of a sinus infection now. I'm treating the ear infection with ACV and letting my system rest for awhile. Yikes! That was a loooong, bad ride!!

I've got lots and lots of pages to backread so I'll be doing that today in between cleaning spurts. The house!! Oy.

Hi all! Happy belated Clay!

Went to an AWESOME herb class the other night and got all jazzed so had to put my order in to Mountain Rose! Getting excited for that to be delivered soon! Also we went to a big craft fair at the local Waldorf school an that was a good time. And I am not hooked on that True Blood series! Anyone else a fan?

Peace- Heather

Thanks! my dd (the one turning 11) wants to see it - i said only if mom sees it first to approve - just another advantage of parenthood (seeing movies you want to see more then once!)

Evening mamas. Boy what a lazy day here, but most weekends are like that for us. Tomorrow Dh's mom is coming, been a while since she's see the kids.

Clay, glad you got the gift you wanted. When I was a kid we would all circle things we wanted in magazines and leave them out for my parents.

Aeress, glad your lo is ok.

Clay- I'm glad you got something you wanted I hope Tor's eye is better.

gun- True Blood- I favored the first season, but do love characters. The books are better, but hbo doesn't follow their storyline too closely. Which is nice in a way- I loved the books, and since the tv isn't too close I don't get all disappointed, yk? And I wanna know about the herb class too

New Moon- I wanna know if it's ok for a 10 yo too. I'm hoping to go some time next week.

Jennifer- Glad to hear you're on the mend

And Yay for snow, moose, warm coats, and hot drinks.

Dok- I'm taking my dd to a dr who uses NAET therapy to clear allergies. I'll lyk what kind of success we get- she tested positive to dairy, sugar, grains and a whole host of outdoor allergens.

The herb class was about alteratives and both relaxing and stimulating diaphoretics. Really interesting stuff. It was my first REAL herb class. I think I may be hooked.

True Blood - I didn't realize that it is based on a book series. I may just need to check that out! tell me though, are the books anywhere as hot as the show?!

Peace- Heather

I'm sure you're having a wonderful time, Maia! Thinking of you.
I'm not there, yet, Aubergine Wednesday, I leave. I can hardly contain myself!

Yes, on all of what you said about diet. I have dropped 13-14lb since beginning this relationship, and it's stayed off-- now, when I get back, I want to seriously concentrate on getting more off, and getting healthier. Working on trying to make tapping a thing to do, too.

YAY on the coat, and happy birthday, Clay!!

I didn't know that was called yogurt cheese. I love Greek yogurt, and someone told me I could make my own, by doing that, and save on the $$. It works, and it's so yummy!

WOW. That would wig me out, for sure.

Three days, mamas!!! How did it get so close, so fast? I am off to go finish laundry, and iron a dress or two. Why, I don't know, since packing is going to just wrinkle them up again, but at least the initial wrinkles will come out. I bought a sample size of this stuff that is put out by some laundry company-- it's a spray bottle of something that says it gets wrinkles out w/o ironing. Um, yeah right, but I'm going to try it. Only thing is, it smells awful-- why do people think everything has to be scented? Doesn't "real" clean laundry smell good enough without having to spray "clean laundry" scent on it?

Turns out I will have a 2.5hr layover in D.C. between flights-- so I am going to wear crappy clothes and no makeup on the way, and then make serious use of the airport bathroom to spiff myself up for the final leg of the trip
Oh my, mamas, I am going to be sizzling hot for this reunion moment

My feeling in the dream was I felt sorry for MIL because she was really upset and wanted to see the kids, but she couldn't. I told DH about the dream when I woke up and 2 hours later they called and canceled.

Where did you take the class? I know a while back there were some postings about online classes. I am thinking about going back and finding them and maybe taking a few.

I love True Blood. I didn't know they were based on books either. I bought the books, haven't started reading them yet though.

My feeling in the dream was I felt sorry for MIL because she was really upset and wanted to see the kids, but she couldn't. I told DH about the dream when I woke up and 2 hours later they called and canceled.
Having the sight is a little freaky at times, isn't it?

Sounds right - Seneca Falls is the "birth place of woman's rights" so there is often things going on there for that - a convention ever summer and such. shot in 88 i was a 4th grade - hope that doesn't make you feel too old - LOL

redveg - sounds like you had an insightful dream

I am getting started on the Yule cards today and while I am at it, decluttering again. I am going to get the altar all cleaned up.

Spiritually, I feel like I need more. I have attended our local UU services 3 times now but I want to have more worship throughout my day. Going to see what I can do.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Neat dream! Is your dh more "germ phobic" or health protective maybe?

Maia- just don't forget to keep breathing! Like the scene in Ever After. (kind of silly movie, but sweet and with awesome costumes. plus drew barrymore )

camera- still no luck. And to Dora dvd pictures... we've had that happen too. DD1 actually takes some pretty neat pictures, but then she'll take a dozen pictures of the tv or something wacky.

TV- so we went to s bday party last weekend and dd1 played lego star wars. We don't have a tv/computer gaming system so this was her first real exposure to games. And lego star wars is pretty tame. Well... I picked up her artwork on Friday (they do art projects each day at school) and almost every picture had a happy, smiling, princess leia or chewbacca "shooting fire out of their gun". It was scary to see picture after picture with guns shooting fire blobs. And this was after just an hour or so exposure! She's never drawn anything like this before and hopefully the thrill wears off soon.

I hate rice milk in tea. blech.

Anyway, had more bloodwork done. Got to go outside with Roo and let him run around. Be back later.
I am working dairy out of my diet too. I have heard good things about hemp milk. (When I go shopping next week)

There is another product that I have heard of called MimicCreme, (sorry DOK has almonds & cashew) ... A friend raves about it for cooking. So trying to track that down.

Yeah my "issues" going dairy-free is cream & shredded cheese. I am already addicted to cashew cream for sour cream, thanks to a raw food friend, so that wasn't a problem.

Gluten free is going surprisingly well if not for prices. Pasta is going to become a luxury instead of a cheap meal, but I am good with that. And hubby LOVES rice so he has no problems with more rice. We now have several types in our pantry.

I see much more baking in my future.

I love True Blood. I didn't know they were based on books either. I bought the books, haven't started reading them yet though.
Crazy how close to reality your dream was Red!

I would love to take more, maybe online! So suggest away mamas!!This class was offered by our local awesome herbalist!

Wow, it sure had a powerful impact on her. Kind of scary and makes me think twice about the exposure DD has to shows.


We got all of our foodstuffs for turkey day this afternoon, and I am happy that's put of our way! We also went out to a Goodwill store and I found some goodies at the Goodwill!! I got a sweater and nice matching skirt and two cardigans! Plus a purse for my niece that is NWT!! A big dragon kite that DD wants to "fly to the moon" on. She has been big on wanting to fly the last couple days here. She actually said she needs to hold on to a witch to fly. I am not sure where she got that, and am not sure how comfy DH felt about it so I didn't say word one!

(Did I mention I am loving True Blood?!!)

Peace- Heather

My son pretty much only drinks hemp milk. He really likes it. I never willingly drank milk as a kid (allergic in early years and never got a taste for it & my parent's don't like it) - so I'm not a good gauge of milk substitutes but I think it is okay.

I belong to a buying club and order hemp milk in bulk (12 quart cases) through Azure Standard. I also buy brown rice pasta through Azure and it makes it affordable. I don't think I'll go back to regular wheat pasta except for special occasions where I want a particular type of pasta (i.e. ravioli). I love ravioli but have a hard time finding dairy free, yet alone dairy and gluten free ravioli.

video violence- yeah, I was really surprised. I mean, the lego star wars game looked really tame in terms of "violence". For those who haven't seen it, the characters really are those little lego figures and when someone/something gets shot it tumbled into individual legos before reassembling itself. No blood or gore or realistic anything. DD1 didn't seem upset or more violent or anything and I don't think she understands "what" she was drawing. Every figure is happy and smiling.... they're just also shooting a gun. Which is what makes it a bit creepy to my mind.

Ok, way late, must sleep!
