Cold and Cruel

Mothers are some of the most heartless people in the world. It's really not fair, if you want your children to turn out as decent people you have to be constantly denying them their hearts desires. There is a kind of horrible power in it; I can walk through my house and in one pass leave a wake of sorrow and despair. For instance:

"No, you may not have ice cream for breakfast."

"It doesn't matter if he looked at you, you cannot break his Lego's"

Life Will Find a Way

Just a few pictures from our summer, and all the growing that happened. 

                  The first fruits of our garden.  Not a lot this year, but it was tasty.

Maximus and Minimum are really growing up. . .

My butterfly bush took some abuse this year, but it's still holding on.

A little rain helps everything grow. 

The kids smashed pumpkins in the yard last year, this year the seeds took off by themselves.
Unfortunately, a bear took off with the pumpkins.

Once the pumpkin vine gave up the flowers took over.

A Dairy Free Fairy Tale

I love coffee. And I love flavors in my coffee. I feel for those who have allergies and cannot have the tasty things. I understand how hard that is; I have food allergies when I am pregnant. So when I eventually start my bakery I'm going to cater to people with allergies. It's going to be challenging, but oh so much fun!

<--This is chocolate coconut creme for my coffee. I've been holding off cooking with coconut oil because a)I don't want to be part of a fad, b)it's so expensive. But someone gave me a jar of it and I'd been using it for lotions, chap-stick, and the like (it's great as a nursing lotion!!). I even did the toothpaste.
