Ann yeong haseyo! I'm sitting here typing to Breaking Dawn's Cinematic Tribute on Spotify. Can I tell you how beautiful the music is?
Kamsa hamnida for your sweet concern about us here. I appreciate the support. We got our garage door secured the way it should have been in the first place. The garage company thinks the thief was able to shove the door to the side since the bolt didn't go the necessary inches through the frame and then open it.
Apparently, Tide is considered liquid gold on the black market as a FB friend had commented. There was also this NY Times article about how Tide, an all-American brand is like a status symbol. I also read online how Tide may be traded for drugs and the school secretary informed me how she saw on the news that some people steal Tide to try to sell cups of it at the laundromat.
Officer Machado stopped by our building this past Saturday and told my uncle there was another forced entry through a garage a few houses up. While we don't really care about what was stolen, it's just plain creepy to think of a stranger wandering about our property and touching our things. Our building is constantly making sure things are secure.
I have not forgotten about the giveaways. I need my helpers so today after school we three dames will find out the winners.
How was your weekend?
I was emotionally spent from last Thursday and Friday I had helped chaperoned my daughter's class to the Academy of Sciences which was packed full of visitors:
Cute bunch, yeah? Oh boy did I work; I was exhausted as other mums were too. Can I tell you chaperoning kindergarteners is way different than 3rd graders? My group started eating lunch until one claimed she had to pee real bad! Everything was packed up quick style and we ran off to the potty. Two of this bunch were so enamored by the eye candy everywhere they kept running off when we viewed an exhibit! The lil' one in green was my lasso as she knew exactly where each girl was hiding in the sea of kids. However, watching a Planetarium show with kindergarteners is the best! They were so in awe of what was being shown and their responses were priceless.
So our weekend was low key. Saturday was baby fix day:
My smile's a bit off here because my newest godson was howling his lil' head off from a wet diaper and I was trying to do that calming jiggle slowly while his dad snapped a few pics.
Then later on my brother, sil, and niece came down to visit and ended up staying for pizza. E and I had so much fun carrying Miranda. She was fully awake! I have never seen a baby like to move her little arms so much and her little mouth was so funny. She'd stick out her tongue or smack her lips.
Sunday I had the tellie on while I spent six hours catching up on your blogs. I had gotten behind again as I've been on the computer less this week and taking time to craft on my bed with either Harry Potter on or Food Network. I watched some of the Super Bowl for the commercials and of course watched Beyonce work the stage as Sasha Fierce and shake her money maker in the half time show.
Here's my progress on Mirripple:
I have another section added. My goal is to have a repeat of the five colors done each week. One group of all the colors is about 6" tall so I have a foot so far - yippee!
Before I sign off today, I leave you with these recipes:
#1: Green Smoothie
I combined a few Pins' recipes to make my daily green smoothie:
2 handfuls of organic spinach
1 c of organic, whole milk yogurt
(adding...) 1 cored apple
4 peeled Mandarins
5-7 frozen, organic strawberries
some frozen mango
I get about 3.5-5 c of this smoothie. I reserve about 8 oz. for my husband who drinks it every morning. I drink the rest.
This was a great Pin. The portion of each ingredient is realistic and I didn't have to worry about it spilling over in the frozen piecrust. Apparently, even dogs can eat this.
Ann yeong kahseyo!
