Flower for Thought

“Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” 

Hats off, it's Sunday!

Life gets complicated, I miss the leisurely Sunday, the kind my grandfather would have, he never lifted a hand to work on Sundays, it was an important rule in his house, a day of rest, a day he started out by attending church, a day spent with the family and enjoying all the things he worked so hard for during the week.
We wear many hats as mothers and fathers, it just doesn't stop anymore; the teacher, the nurturer, carpenter, nurse, cook, and even household provider. We need to allow ourselves to take off all those hats and just be.

Getting Hairy

Friday the 13th has come and gone, kick starting a weekend of more hair-raising adventures in home remodeling. Stay tuned!

Go ahead! Treat yourself to a Veggie Smoothie

Sometimes I think the only ones eating their veggies in our house seem to be the bunnies, I buy bags of carrots, kale and apples, yet my kids are the ones eating it.

That is unless I call it a "treat" and we head over to the local Smoothie King! Why is it they'll eat carrots, apples and kale, even avocado in a smoothie and not at home on the dinner plate?

My daughter put on an amazing powerpoint presentation with a friend over the weekend for a room of 50+ people, and instead of flowers she insisted we go to Smoothie King as a reward for her 3 months of hard work. 

To make it even more special we went out in the yard and hand picked some blackberries, then I poured all our smoothies into mason jars, covered it with a cupcake liner and inserted a pretty paper straw and drank them on the porch. This is also a great idea for a summer party or picnic.

Every time we go she orders a new flavor and every time it then becomes her new favorite, which is now Berry Carrot Dream, though it's hard for her to admit she likes carrots. But for me that's not a problem and new limited time only Avocado Pineapple Smoothie is my new favorite, but isn't anything with pineapple awesome! I had a friend successfully grow pineapple in her backyard and she doesn't even live in Hawaii, so I'm thinking I need to test my green thumb and try it.
