So, I tried making those Kind bars last night... did not work out so well. The recipe remained sticky and did not harden... but I misread the recipe and only got the liquid up to the softball heat instead of hardball. I got confused for some reason and messed up the whole batch. I'll try again today and make sure to follow the recipe precisely. The stuff is still yummy and the kids enjoyed some in a bowl with a little chocolate drizzled on top. I made the dark chocolate cherry kind. For the recipe, go to The Yummy Life's website. I'll post my review of the recipe after I try a second time to make it!
Didn't work out yesterday. There should be and 'ow' emoticon on here. I did something to my right hip joint and every little move I made hurt. I took something for the pain, but it didn't help much, heating pad didn't help at all as it felt too deep for that to work. So far this morning not as much pain, I hope it stays that way (or goes away!)!
This 6 weeks in Classical Conversations we are talking about the great American artists. Today is the kids first time painting (we've been drawing). The church we meet at is so small that we are breaking up my DDs' class into youngest and oldest and putting them in with other classes so that we can use their class as a painting room. Both my girls like routine and schedules, so they are not excited about their day being changed. Plus they are going to be in different classes, which should be interesting for me. Today we have to stay through all of lunch as we are going to a meeting to find out what the next class, Essentials, is all about. It would be an extra class my oldest daughter would take. I'm not looking forward to staying the extra time as it is really wet so we'll be stuck inside the tiny church with a ton of energetic kids! Ah well, the things we do for our children!
Did not eat as well last night, DH didn't feel like running to the grocery store like he'd planned on so we ordered pizza. I ordered the garden pizza so I at least got my veggies in. Today I have to take my lunch and no idea what on Earth I'm going to take. Maybe just a bunch of snacky foods like a banana and apple.
