Ramblings & Possible New Name Or New Blog
Happy Friday everyone! Just a bit of ramblings today.
I changed my profile avatar from the above pic, which was taken this past Sunday, 23rd. The other one was from about 2 or 3 years ago, so figured it was time for an updated picture.
My dad and Yolanda, his girlfriend, came over that day and we had a fun and enjoyable visit. I made some of my raw food treats and healthy snacks for them to try and they loved it all. Yolanda especially loved my zucchini "cheeze" roll-ups... she ate the very last one with a big grin on her face! I sent them home with what was left: persimmon pie, "fudge" and "not meat" balls - all raw of course.
Mark and I exchanged a few simple gifts this year and mine were centered around the kitchen - which I wanted and he did an AWEsome job! His were movies and a PC game that he wanted, so he was happy too. We sent all the kids a little green stuff, which made this year's shopping painless and very easy.
We received gift cards to PF Changs & Starbucks from the kids, yum! Oh and the gift that brought tears to my eyes was from my daughter-in-law... a set of writing pens. I know... pens made me teary? They are Breast Cancer Awareness pens, but I it was her sweet note that got me the most.
Christmas day Mark & I went to the movies to see The Hobbit. One word: awesome! If you're into The Lord of the Rings, then you'll LOVE it. Can hardly wait for the next flic! Oh and it was a long one... just about 3 hours. I took snacks, a green smoothie and bottle water with us, but Mark splurged on popcorn and his $1 drink with his Harkins cup.
After the movies we popped on over to my brother's house for a fun little visit and gave our little nephews their gifts. Kids are so fun to watch at this time of the year :)
One other rambling before I go. I'm thinking of starting another blog for my raw food. I cannot express enough how wonderful I feel inside and out since going raw - plus after almost 52 years the end of this month, I finally found my passion! I've thought about changing the url name of this blog for a long time now since it doesn't even fit anymore, but I think that might mess up all the other posts or links. I don't know enough about that part, do you? I already have a second blog for my handmade jewelry & findings, so guess a third one won't hurt. Still playing around with that idea.
Well, guess that's enough ramblings for today. Hope everyone had a beautiful Holiday or Christmas or just hanging out doing nothing day.
p.s. I'm lovin' the type of tops I'm finding that have a little gathering to them, sort of hides what I don't have. NOT that it bothers me one little bit. I just like them because they are cute and doesn’t appear to freak people out as much.
