I love recipes that evolve over time.

I made a tomato based soup which used what I had on hand-
Karen's Tomato Soup
1 bag frozen onion, green pepper and tomato
1 large can tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans (I gave up on dried, never were soft enough for me)
1/2 can creamed corn
frozen Fake chicken (what I had left of a bag)
Noodles (pre-cooked, cause they were left over)
Bay Leaf
Basil
---I cooked the frozen stuff with the tomato sauce, basil and bay leaf for about 35 minutes, until everything was cooked through
Right before eating, I added the creamed corn and noodles and beans
and simmered for 20 minutes.
It was very tastey- the creamed corn gave it a slightly creamy texture

Mary- yours sounds so good. maybe I will make that thursday

Cooking - we never have the same thing twice, even if it comes out of the box because I always do something a little different. It's FUN, and I keep meaning to look up uses for our favorite cooking herbs.

Blessings - great blessings, I've been writing a bunch down! Speaking of cooking and blessings, is there anything special you say when you're cooking? I usually try to cook with a positive MIND, but if I had something to think that would be cool too.

It's 9:50, and I wanna go back to bed instead of getting ready to clean. That's ok, I have more coffee to drink first. On Thursday this week I go back to the dentist for exams, x-rays and impressions. Woo. Next Tuesday ds and I are going to get our eyes checked, and I'll probably have to go to the pdoc too. I need to call them lol.

Yes, that! I still have a couple that I haven't opened, because I have this huge pile of mail that's part of my procrastination pile One word for me this year might be TIMELY. I am such a huge procrastinator. HUGE. I have mail that's piled up from weeks ago
What a wonderful idea to keep the cards up till Imbolc, though. Imbolc here always gets overshadowed by DS's birthday, which is January 31. This year, I have clinicals on Saturday for half the semester so his birthday and Imbolc are both going to have an uber-tired mama in charge
Thankfully, he just wants two kids for an overnight, for his birthday this year. Pizza, cake, ice cream, popcorn, movies ~wipes brow~

I need to get off my lazy arse and get a shower, and get going with my long list of chores for the day. Starting with that dang mail.

Have a great day, mamas! Check in with ya later!

SQUEEEEE!!!! What a sweet ring!

(highlight a word, click on the "insert link" icon... the world with a chain... and when the box pops up paste the link you want into the box. The highlighted word will be the link.)

We had a surprise cleaning splurge yesterday. DH pulled everything out of the kitchen area, we took down the tree, we organized. Things feel much lighter!

Question- 4yo dd1 is feeling very left out these days and she's acting out on it. Not screaming fits (ok, some screaming ), but she is wetting the bed, bouncing off walls, getting very clingy of the babe if anyone notices him (like at church yesterday he was in the ergo, if anyone commented on him dd1 instantly ran over/grabbed my leg/started patting and kissing Tor and blocking him from view), etc. Tor has a lot of actual need for touch/attention since he is a 24/7 nursling and only 4.5mo and Ro is a wild ball of special needs and very good at getting attention. And dd1 is getting left out since I only have so much energy! Any ideas? I feel so bad for her and, well, changing her jammies 2-3 times a night EVERY night is more than I can handle and stay chipper.

Oh Clay, I love that! I need to do the same to my kitchen, but mostly so we can get the dead dishwasher OUT and install a new cabinet flooring. Which I don't wanna do.

And dh is worried about how we're going to clean up our bedroom. I am too, considering his work hours, we can't just spread it all over. We are cramped for space, so we don't have a extra room that we can stash stuff in. He doesn't want to buy anymore storage bins. I don't blame him, we have a ton of them, and we need to get rid of stuff in some of them. Maybe we'll do that first...ugh.

4 yo - can you put her in a diaper at night? Or is it waking her up when she wets? When Kate was born Jack was also 4, and I remember doing a lot of nursing and games. This is when we got started with the 'play with me' issue and imaginative play. I find it rather difficult to nurse a 2 month old and imagine!!! So we bought games like Candy Land, and Chutes and Ladders, and I would get comfortable, latch Kate on, and then we'd set up and play a few rounds. Memory, Go Fish, puzzles, etc. All kinds of great things. And she can sit right next to you and kinda cuddle in if you're careful about your chosen nursing position and location. I found the floor and a boppy in my lap worked best.

Clay- When does pre-school start back up?I know another distraction and a place where their sibling wasn't, was helpful to both of my kids during the time when the babe was in the constant eating totally attached to momma stage. Also some alone time, will Tor let dh hold him for even half an hour? Half an hour seemed like an eternity- we could do a simple craft, spend time chatting etc. And sometimes, just letting them know that Momma needs her big girl to help out can help with the transition. I tried to balance the need for me wanting a big girl helper and the fact that she was still my baby too. *hugs*

me too. i started reading the little blessing out of "Jambalaya" (of course, i don't remember it off the top of my head) - an excerpt was in Cooking Like a Goddess and I wanted to see the whole thing.

i also noticed that i ALWAYS stir counterclockwise. is that a bad thing to do? stirring clockwise just feels so unnatural.

clay - no thoughts here, just observed commiseration. my sister is expecting her 3rd in July (sticky thoughts for her - she's still nervous about sticking power). over the break, we were altogether at my parents' house and we noticed some crabby behavior from the eldest (my 6yo niece) once in a while when my sis and her dh were paying too much attention simultaneously to my 3yo nephew.

I always cook with intention I put different things, vibes, ideas in each meal depending on what I see is needed.

The only thing I can think of which might be difficult in your situation, is some alone, special time just for her. I always tried to give each of mine a bit of there own time. Even if it was just a drive to the store, I still have a DD that goes to the store with me A video, a game? Just you and her time. Bedtime story or just talk It doesn't have to be a long time, just her time. Maybe during the other little ones nap time? If it doesn't help I hope it gives you some ideas>

That's a beautiful ring! I love gemstones.

Today is a pretty packed day. I'm making more headscarves for the fall after coming up with a pattern to knit with my knifty knitter. Right now I'm making a hat for dd.

Dd had a nightmare last night and I stayed up until 5am sitting with her. I'm very tired, but I have WAY too much to do today.

Hope all is having a good day.

If I think about it I usually stir counter clockwise..but I put that off to being right handed? I don't always, I usually stir counter clockwise a couple times and then clockwise a couple, it just depends on what I'm stirring and if it needs mixing or just a quick stir.

dok- yoicks! Apparently the universe did NOT want you on the road today.

unschoolin- how do you like the nifty knitter? I haven't been able to knit for a while because little fingers undo things faster than I can finish them. The knifty looks faster? Is it worth the price?

dd1 ideas- thanks! I "do" her shower each night and we have some "girl time" (nail polish, hair braiding) but I think I need to sell it a bit more. Preschool starts up againg this week and I agree that should help. I'll try the board games again... recently dd2 wants to do whatever dd1 does but she doesn't have the knack of board games... so I need my hands free. DH can take Tor between nursings and I tuck in/bedtime story both girls together but I'm going to have to build in more 1 on 1 ideas.

money- we just got a pile of bills from our dr's office. For some reason they ran an audit of the past 5 years and cummulative we owe more than 100 dollars between the five of us in random small amounts that weren't covered by insurance. It's not a huge amount, but it's more than we have on hand so it's a problem. sigh. We were very conservative with the holiday season but still, these unexpected medical things are not good. I had hoped to continue seeing our beloved family practice drs and just going to the mainstream practice for serious medical work but I'm going to have to cancel Tor's wbv at our happy dr because we can't absorb another 300 dollar hit this month. Guess we're going back to the generic practice. They weren't bad, but they don't know us and the whole vibe was very clinical. I hate the US medical system.

I do like it, but I still prefer using two needle knitting for the challenge of it. It IS worth the money cause you can make tons of stuff. My kids love doing it too and it's very easy for them.

No, silly! Wouldn't that be fun if it would work? I meant-- well, I was kind of cheating. If I find myself stirring widdershins, I find things to banish to rationalize the direction I was accidentally stirring Like negativity, usually.

DS starts school tomorrow-- I have a WHOLE DAY to myself! AND he has martial arts in the afternoon. Which means, I can go to the scratch'n'dent grocery store and Goodwill while he's there YAY!

Zoiks. I thought I was caught up on reading your posts - but back behind again. DS went back to school/daycare today. He sat with me for about 2 minutes while I was unpacking his stuff for the day then ran off to play. He had about an 8 second "b/c you're supposed to cry" cry when I left. DD has been having gas issues and screams whenever I put her down - so I had all these big plans for the day and have accomplished about none. I did decide to go to a great used bookstore after I dropped off DS though, that was nice.

Question for you lovelies. I need to rearrange my bedroom to move furniture away from the baseboard heaters. DH is roasting at night with the bed pushed up against one - but I'm cold b/c the heater is blocked. The free floor space is approximately 10' by 10' (there is also a the 3x10' space but it is bounded by the door (one wall), a window (opposite wall) and our closets. We have a queen size bed & 2 dressers. I basically want to turn the bed 90 degrees so it either faces the window or the door. One dresser will need to be up at the head of the bed. If I set the bed facing the window - I can watch the sunrise over the mtns in bed (might be`less than ideal though in summer when it rises at 4 am). However, I wont be able to see the hallway or ds's room. Think that would be a problem?

liza--that sounds lovely. what a view that must be. And in the summer, you could probably just have heavier curtains to draw back when it's a more appropriate time in the day. As long as you can hear what goes on in the hallway or in your ds's room, I think that should be okay.

dok--great about the guy, sucks about the car. you know, I do live sorta close to you (for now--what about that apt you were looking at?) I might be able to help you out from time to time. Would you want to meet up at some point?

Come ponder with me about food!

I'd love to meet up. I don't share my address (or potential address) to people online. I've learned the hard way not to do that. Sorry.
But I would love to get together once my car is fixed. We can meet at Barnes & Noble or something.

Maia, gorgeous ring! I don't know if you were ever a royal follower (I loved Princess Diana ) but HER engagement ring was a big old sapphire that was gorgeous... much more character than a diamond if you ask me

I missed something about knitting I see... I so totally need to really try it again this winter. I adore hand knitted stuff!

If I set the bed facing the window - I can watch the sunrise over the mtns in bed (might be`less than ideal though in summer when it rises at 4 am). However, I wont be able to see the hallway or ds's room. Think that would be a problem?
For me it would not be a problem to not be able to see the kids room, because so much as a peep out of them wakes me up! Feng shui says you should be able to see the door easily from your bed, but not have your feet facing straight out the door (which is called the coffin position) but you also shouldn't have a window above/behind your headboard, so it sounds like your spot facing the window is really the best. One of the suggestions for this, in the feng shui book I am reading, is to hang a mirror on the wall that will enable you to see the reflection of the door from your bed

I'm still gimpy today mamas. I know when the pain started, and what I was doing at the moment (I stepped oddly to the side with one leg, but it felt like my body didn't follow my hip if that makes sense?) but for some reason I have a big bruise going around my hip! It's about 1 inch wide and over a foot long all total (it's a line, that fades to a dotted line) It's really freaky and I can't go to my doc as I have zero money for my share... so if I get it looked at I'll have to go to the ER. A friend suggested maybe I hyperextended the joint, pulling the ball slightly out of the socket and now all the tendons are (*&%#$ but I have no clue. I do however have a lot of ibuprofen.. which seems to be doing squat

Ouch! I hate waking up with some kind of bruise or injury and not quite remembering how it happened. Do you have cayenne pepper? It can be made into a paste by mixing some water and then placing it on a cloth, you can put it on the sore spot. The chemical enzyme in cayenne pepper is equal to what is found in arthritis pain cream.
