Hi

I used to ski when I was younger. Those slopes at the Olympics scare me. I would be walking down sideways!!!

Pooter is a cougar!!! I'm sure he is much younger than our sweet gal. I think Alex would love Pooter, too, but alas they are too far apart.

Teaching Scarlet to knit. We are making a WalMart trip this am.

Lucky Scarlet! You are a good teacher, Carolyn.

Planning to cook a lot today to prepare for next week.
I have a lunch date with my friend whose husband was diagnosed and is being treated for stage 4 colon cancer + spread (I think) to his liver.
Then back to cooking.

Will be out of town lots next week but home every night.

You are a busy person..We had fun learning to knit..Then we went out for Mexican and Scarlet didn't eat many chips at all because she knew she wouldn't finish her meal if
she did. Hmmm..when did she learn that??

Oh...so sad about your friend's dh.. Prayers for his healing.

Hi!
I'm loving Saturday... enjoyed slowly getting things done & relaxing. Needed that! Then friends dropped in for a short visit 'after' I had finished my exercise. Now we're vegging for the evening. Perfect day!
Molly got her exercise... a good run, then a long hike with DH on his snow-shoes. Then our company all doted on her... spoiled rotten
Hope y'all are doing great!

Well, we took a round trip bus ride today here to get a look at everything. Maybe next time we'll take the other route, lol. I think I can get into this bus thing, lol.
Then my granddaughter and her best friend surprised us and came to out from Topeka to see us. We all went to mass and then to Bobby T's for dinner and to watch the game. Woooohooooo, KU won!!! So it was a great day all the way around.
Plus, I'm still doing well being back on track. And it's paying off!! Imagine that!!!
Tomorrow it is supposed to get cold again. I hate this roller coaster weather but as long as we don't get any more heavy snows I'm going to try not to complain.

My friend is so well.
Admittedly in survival mode, but is surrounded by the love and help of her church and family and his friends. Just hoping and praying.

Sandy and Debby what a great day! Carolyn your influence is wonderful (for more than Scarlet!).

MK darnit for your snow!

Hi ladies!!

Snow???? MK, that is incredible. Again.

Sandy, that was a good idea taking the bus around. Does it stop close to your house?? I'm so impatient. But if you didn't have any shopping bags to carry it might br fun.

Weigh-in for me on Tuesday. Will be totally perfect today and tomorrow . I might make some pasta for my doctor and see how she likes it.

KU played well, not so much KSU. I am sure Wichita is still going strong.

Working the nursery today. They are so cute. The pack of 2 year olds are starting to talk and that is fun!!

Yes Carolyn, the bus stop is just around the corner so very convenient for us. I don't know how often I'll use it, but if I'm going on campus for anything it would sure help not having to find a parking spot. DH said I should come meet him for lunch at the Union sometimes, so I'll probably ride the bus in then. It stops right at the Union!

Oh, I made almond flour pancakes this morning. I didn't have any cinnamon, vanilla or b. powder so I just used egg & vanilla almond milk and they were great!!

Carolyn, do you buy the lc milk by CarbMaster? It's fabulous!!!!! Even just plain all by itself!! And only 3 carbs per cup!

Ha! I made almond flour waffles this morning - a few leftover for the week ahead.
I quadrupled: 1/4 cup almond flour, 1 egg, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, a couple of capsfull of DaVinci vanilla. I also add a couple of drops of EZ Sweetz because I like these sweet.
And too late I remembered I bought some Capella flavor drops from my last netrition order: Waffle!

Now I have to google that milk.

Hello dear friends! I apologize for being absent for so long, has been a super busy month with travels and company and I just got to not checking in on all of you. Sorry and will try to do better in March!
But, leaving tomorrow to spend a week in AZ with my sisters, then hoping things calm down a bit.
I haven't had a chance to go back and catch up so hope everyone is well.
Hugs all around!

Judy and Carolyn - Wish I could go and meet you two at the EW convention! I went to Tulsa last year with a group of gals from church (about 12 of us!) It will be awesome
I was looking through my emails and saw an invite to go to this year's and figured it out. Blessings to you ALL there!!

Hi

Oh, Buffy!!! Happy trails to AZ. I think MK would like to fit in your suitcase with all her snow.

Debbie! I was there last year. Tim Hawkins was so funny and the rest of the program was great. Judy and I are just meeting for breakfast.

Sandy, I didn't know Carbmaster made milk!! Wowza! I will have to buy some on our next trip to Wichita!! Tulsa doesn't have a Dillons or a Krogers does it Judy???

Chinese for lunch. I wasn't horrible and won't eat tonight.

I have to admit - I'm just going to breakfast not the convention.
I would love for us all to meet somehow together, though...

No - no Dillons or Krogers here.
I looked at other discussions about the Carbmaster milk and they seemed to think it was like Hood.
Sandy, is it?

The discussion then turned to the Carbmaster yogurts and all agreed they were really delicious - Linda Sue joined in that discussion.

I have eaten Carbmaster's yogurt for years, lots more protein and fewer carbs than other yogurts. I didn't know there was Carbmaster's milk! I'll have to check out my local Dillons!

I personally think the carbmaster milk is much better than Hood's. Hood's always had a bit of a chalky taste or something. Just not quite right. Better than nothing but I wouldn't just go get a glass to drink. This carbmaster milk is fantastic!!! I just wish it was available everywhere!!! The closest Dillon's to my home is about 40 minutes away and I'll be driving there to get this milk when I no longer have it available close to me. I like it much, much better than the carbmaster yogurt. I like the yogurt okay, but my homemade yogurt now has me spoiled. I did buy some though to fill in until I get some yogurt made.

Buffy, have fun. We'll all still be here when you get back.

Hi ladies

Do you go to the Dillons west of town in the Little A?? Our closest Dillion's is in Andover. 80 miles away. I wonder if you could freeze the milk???

MK, it was a Christian's women's convention called E-Women. This weekend it is in Tulsa. They go all over the country. Very inspiring speakers and great music... Judy and I are meeting for breakfast in the hotel before I go to the Saturday session. I wish I had known Debbie last year!!

I have horrible nails. Just saying.

Boiled some eggs. Yummy.

No Carolyn, I haven't made it to that location yet. I went to the one on the east side. I wondered if it would freeze. I guess I should try that and see.

I boiled eggs today too. Or should I say I pressure cooked some eggs, lol. I love making them that way. They peel so easily!! Even fresh ones!

Yep! In my electric pressure cooker. You're supposed to pressure them for 6 minutes but the shortest time on my cooker is 10 so unless I'm really paying close attention, mine usually go for 10. Today is the very first time that I've ever had one crack but I did a lot more at one time than I usually do. I think somehow that made the difference. But still super easy to peel.

Hi Sandy, Do you put your eggs in dry? I'd like to try mine that way.

Yes I do. I put them on a rack and there's about 1/2 c of water in the bottom of the pan. Pressure on high for 6 minutes. Or 10 if you're like me, lol. It's on the internet if you want to read up on it first.

What a cool tip! Thanks!
I'm happy that we survived the annual general meeting... (the biggest deal in my year)... now I can breath easy & work 'normal.'
Poor Molly had her ovaries removed today. She's laid out on her bed snoozing hard. Poor baby.
