In My Shoes

 Granny K and Christopher enjoyed their dinner
I think that Christopher is sweet on his Great Grandma

 I really think that sweet boy needs a haircut
But Mommy and Daddy don't think so
 He likes to wear big shoes

 I think this part of Christopher is just like me

I'm not much of a drinker. I mean I don't really like the way liquor tastes or makes me feel,so I might have a glass of wine once in a while but that's pretty much it.
Until now......

 I first tasted this yummy Coconut Rum at a party and now I love it. I still don't drink much ... I had two small drinks last night and about 12 raw oysters....

 Thank goodness I don't drink much because I feel like poooo today...
I have Gout really bad and now I'm so swollen and puffy I can hardly see
 Look at my puffy eyes and OMG my little hands or so swollen I can hardly bend my fingers.

 I thought that I should drink lots of water and take the bike out today... just maybe it would help me feel better...... No
 My sweetie is looking after me to day...
 I need more water and sleep

Over the Hills and Through the Woods


Whats For Dessert?

Okay I'm baking today
I'm trying out a new recipe for our Family
 Thanksgiving Dinner
We have decided to have a heart healthy dinner and all the cooks of the family are going to bring something
awesomely good for you.
Brownies are my Dads favorite thing ....
So I wanted to find a brownie that would taste good
and at the same time
be healthy and low on fat.
 I decided to try these Krusteaz brand
 Of course
If you know me at all ... you know I cant follow a recipe
So I decided to add  a few things that I thought would add some flavor to the box recipe
I added two hipping tablespoons of my favorite Internationals coffee to the ingredients

 I love  Sugar Free Swisse Mocha
and instead of 1/2 cup of water, I used 1/2 of French pressed coffee
 They turned out great!!!
Chewy and very rich
You wont believe that they are Fat Free

 And only 2 points on the WW diet

  I think Grandpa Cookie is going to loveeeee these : )

Its beginning to look alot like Christmas

I've been home alone for a few day and to keep my self from missing the Captain I thought I would get started on decorating for the holidays. I don't think you should have to wait until Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas. What do you think?  I cant see doing all this work for just a few weeks. I want to enjoy the lights for as long as I can. 

 It was so much fun decorating our new home. I use to decorate for the kids and now its just for us two.
I'm waiting for the Captain to put the star on the
top of the tree.

 This is what a snow man looks like in POC
 This is the boys room. I'm not sure they will be coming home for Christmas : (
Just in case I have everything ready for them.
 Hi Boys...Mommy has homemade cookies
waiting for you....

 Our little love
I love our bedroom, its so romantic and comfortable

 I'm not finished yet
Be sure to check back and see whats next.
