A 5 year plan? Hmmm.

I found my first grey hair on 12/21/2012.

My son is 13. So for the next 5 years I will be busy raising a young man to adulthood.
My daughter is 10. So I am raising a young woman. (These are considered the toughest years for a female.)

Trying to stay healthy. Keep up with the husband and kids. Knit some stuff for fun and gifts. (Looking in to "prayer shawl" or "Operation Linus" I think it adds some mystery to knitting. I'm going to try a special little shrug sweater that is for mastectomy recovery, haven't found the right yarn yet.)

5 years, hmmm.
Getting 2 small children going through school, seeing if I can rebuild my health to get back to part time work. I would love to take a 6 month sabbatical when the kids are old enough to appreciate it, and travel as a family. I''ll be sure to pop by if I am passing :

Edited to add, mommida, the shawls and blankets are such a lovely idea x

I have to admit I am intrigued by the prayer shawl. I bought a clearance Prayer Shawl book, because the patterns looked soo easy. I did not expect the personal stories would be so interesting. The story on page 59 caught my interest. A wounded soldier at Walter Reed was asked what he had wrapped around him. He said he didn't know, someone just gave it to him. He likes it because it keeps him warm. He then added a confession to the monk, he hears praying voices when he wears it.

Even if I only make 1 a year, I think it will be worth it.

Hm, dunno, do you really want to do that happily ever after part? :P


I think I'll take my chances ;) :P

In 10 years Max, God willing, will graduate from high school and then other than an occasional birthday party, wedding, etc. here and there, there will be NO reason to have to speak with or deal with Jesse. THAT, my friends, will be a big part of that happily ever after!! :D

Coconut, since I cannot have almonds because they make me drowsy. I think it was 55 grams of coconut for 2 cups of egg whites - plus some salt, baking powder, xantan and psyllium... You get six 6-inch bagels. The texture is a bit odd if you are looking for a chewy, dense bagel, but I am not fan of chewiness, so I appreciate their crunchy, golden crust and airy inside. Yum!

BC--thanks! (I can access the board now from my computer, but have problems posting after a quote :blink: ) Even now, I can't "return" to form paragraphs, but I digress :D I'm the opposite of you--allergic to coconut, but eat loads of almond. Since I also prefer light, crispy bagels (like Udi's), I bet I'd like those--will try with almond flour :) .

Glad to help :) I think you will have to play around a bit with the proportions: coconut is high in fibre and absorbs a lot of moisture, so it requires more egg than almond flour.

I simply poured the mixture in my donut pan. I know that's not how you make bagels, and I used to make-boil-and-bake my own back in the days, but I personally don't think I could make a coconut batter that would be good for boiling.

Let me know how it goes!

I'm way behind on posts. Still thinking about my five year plan and responding to the posts I haven't read. The party was beyond my expectations (except I wish it was nearer to some psillies- I'm determined to start meeting my dear forum friends). It wiped me out for a week because, as usual, i OVERDID IT (big surprise). hey, I was celebrating two special birthdays (3) and my living! Didn't cost quite as much as i expected so we can throw Tony a nice party with his friends at Brown for his official 21st. He only had 3 friends at the party but he more than made up for quantity with quality. These friends either waited a week to go back to school (the theater major parlayed it into an assignment) and the other 2 drove back from school.

Anyway, since thee isn't a set psillie group email and i don't have everyone's I wanted to share this with everyone in case I didn't have your email to send it to:

the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

you may have to eat them.

I've learned....

I've learned....

little fist, you're hooked for life
.

happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.

I've learned....
That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.


YOU ARE MY FRIEND, AND I AM HONORED!








I miss you all!
