My Written Selfie Continued…finally!

Sorry guys when I said I’d leave you in suspense I didn’t mean for it take this long! Life has thrown a lot my way since I rang in 2016!

But I will continue where I left off…or not. To be completely honest with you I’m not too terribly motivated to write this.

I much prefer to write fiction, or write about fiction. I like tall tales, making up stories and telling everyone who is willing to listen about all the amazing books

out there and the fact that a lot of these amazing books I read come from home grown talent!

This just thrills me to my core! Prairie authors abound and I don’t want to tell you anymore about myself, other than

I wish to be one someday but am also extraordinarily happy and fulfilled with my career in childcare.

Starting where I am and pursuing my passions from this place is just as thrilling and I want to tell you about these amazing authors.

I don’t want to go back any longer. I just want to move forward! Let’s move forward together!

With that some hilarious things a child in my daycare centre told me today:
It was someone’s birthday, which in world of most children is a BIG DEAL! Then this adorable little guy piped up and said, “My mommy made me have a birthday!” I said “Oh yeah, she made you?” He looked up at me with the funniest angry face ever and said grudgingly “Yes she did!” Okay…he’s an old soul I guess :p
I’ve found that children really like to hear themselves talk and will say anything that comes to mind. One little boy announced to his friends as he was building a Lego house, “I have a penis! And play dough!” Two very important things to a three-year-old boy!
One of the girls is convinced that there is a store in her tummy and when she eats, the food goes shopping for baby stuff…if only I had half that child’simagination…maybe she’ll be the next J.K. Rowling and I can say I was her daycare teacher
I love looking after children. Their imaginations never fail to surprise and amaze me and their (most of the time) sweet gestures that they have no idea mean so much. Like wiping a child’s jacket off when they fell down, older children getting a Kleenex and wiping a younger child’s tears or giving them a hug, or just smiling for no apparent reason. I often try to remember my mind set at that age but it remains one of life’s greatest mysteries. Jesus has told us to be child like in faith, trusting, which goes against everything we are taught as we grow older. But what a lovely way to live don’t you think?

My idea of healthy is called  “The Carrot Day”. The main dish is “The Carrot Juice”. (Yes, I know …

When Brad Pit ask: Who is your daddy?

I never promise you a rose garden

 Or just read..

I never promise you a rose garden

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time
When you take you gotta give so live and let live
Or let go oh-whoa-whoa-whoa
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

I could promise you things like big diamond rings
But you don’t find roses growin’ on stalks of clover
So you better think it over
Well if sweet-talkin’ you could make it come true
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
But what would it matter
So smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
But if that’s what it takes to hold you
I’d just as soon let you go
But there’s one thing I want you to know
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
And there won’t always be someone there to pull you out
And you know what I’m talkin’ about
So smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time,
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden


  and remember.
“It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done”.

You want to lose weight – DRINK WATER

Yes, I know this blog is about baking, cookies, cakes, chocolate…. But this blog is also about health, taking care of yourself and
your body. I always look for different ways that I can improve my life, my health and my body.
And for today my Eureka is “WATER”.
So, if you never heard you can learn now, you can lose weight by drinking H2O or WATER.
Some other benefits are:
1. Energize us
2. Protect our joints
3. Keeps our kidneys working
4. Prevent headaches
5. Can improve mood
6. Great for your skin
…and so much more…
The amount of water you need to drink will depend on your current weight.
Obviously a woman of 125 pounds does not need to drink as much as a woman who is 200 pounds.
Here’s how much water your body requires to lose weight based on your weight.
132 lbs or 60 kg you need to drink 2L of water (8 cups)
143 lbs or 65 kg you need to drink 2.1L of water
154 lbs or 70 kg you need to drink 2.3L of water
165 lbs or 75 kg you need to drink 2.5L of water
176 lbs or 80 kg you need to drink 2.6L of water
187 lbs or 85 kg you need to drink 2.8L of water
198 lbs or 90 kg you need to drink 3L (12 cups)
209 lbs or 95 kg you need to drink 3.2l
220 lbs or 100 kg you need to drink 3.3l

….and so on…
As always I would love to know what you think about this.
