Favourite things Friday...

This is my new favourite chocolate bar...  It's DELISH!

And that's all I can say about it as I'm about to take another bite! ;)

some recent purchases...

On the weekend we made our semi-regular trip to real groovy, so that I could add to my burgeoning collection of cool books and okay music...

This time, I tossed up between buying some of the latest vampire buzz books and some neat recipe books - the food won out!

People who know me, know my love of all things cupcake - but they may not know I have an interest in vegan food. That's because it is a recent interest, fuelled by my youngest daughter's allergies to dairy (& gluten). I can't wait to try out some of these recipes!! :)

Birthday Season!

Yep, it's that time of year at our house.  Lot's of birthday going's on's!  A couple of weeks ago it was Hope's and now it's Aimee's turn.  Luckily for Aimee, I think I have my craft mojo back, at least in a small way.

Lookie, what I'm making her for her 11th Birthday tomorrow!

Well, a sneak peak anyway...  still unfinished, but thank God for husbandless evenings, because tonight I'll finish it!

In case you're wondering what it could possibly be...  It's a little case (fur-lined & waterproof resistant) for her Nintendo DS.

Yesterday at craft group my interest in applique was rekindled and I've been at it like crazy since then.  Cupcakes, birds, flowers all excitedly stitched.  So, lets hope the craft creativity drought is finally over because I am getting sick of reading novels hastily chosen from the local library!  There's a season for everything, but I was going a little crazy there!

Hope life's treating you well,

Ordinary Miracle | Sarah McLachlan

It’s not that unusual when everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say, wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way to give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds and winter have their fling but always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up every day please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart cause we are all a part of the ordinary miracle
Ordinary miracle, do you wanna see a miracle?


It seems so exceptional that things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright and disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today


It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Nice to be reminded sometimes... :)

Operation Christmas...

This is something that my kids and I have been involved in for the past couple of years - it's a fantastic lesson in giving to others, and they always have fun trying to find neat things to give at the local $2 store. :)

Now is the time to be thinking about doing this, so that kid's all around the world can get a wee gift this Christmas. It doesn't cost much, but it's a totally worthwhile experience. Our old church used to make a big party of making up the boxes together! Not sure how we will do it this year, but it's sure to be fun!
