Went for a quick swim in between doggie walks (and one grandma check) and look what had arrived while swimming.

Thank you Kasey J. Claytor for your kindness and thoughtfulness! Can’t wait to sit and savor these.

Such an amazing and soul pleasing lunch!! Roasted eggplant garlic soup and raw vegan coconut mango cheesecake from Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno. Romaine, cucumber, carrot, and onion salad topped with kalamata olives, cashews, pumpkin seeds and green garlic dressing with a side of dried okra; provided by me! Left me in, “That was da** good food heaven!”

Oh my gosh! Why had I not seen or tried this before? I sautéed mushrooms and sweet onions with a pat of this a few nights ago. And just now melted and drizzled it over fresh popped heirloom popcorn. Good grief! So yum!!! They have nailed it. Love the ingredient list too!

Loose Tooth and Cheers

**THROWBACK POST**

April 26 2012:

You see it? That tooth right there? Been loose for about NINE months. We’ve been wiggling it for 10-20 minutes every day for the past 3 weeks to get that sucker out! We had an appointment this past Monday to get it pulled; which I cancelled cause it was SOOOO close! It is OUT and Team TLC will be celebrating! Think this calls for a dance party!

Lillian and Thomas Talk on the Phone

**THROWBACK POST**

April 26 2010:

Listening to Lillian talk to Thomas on the phone! What a hoot!

He keeps asking her questions & doesn’t understand her answers. He can’t read yet so she can’t send a text message!

I hear him saying the same things I say to her, “Just say yes or no”!! If he were here he would be telling her “Go get your phone/device and tell me”! This would be sad if I didn’t choose to have a sense of humor about it!!

Moonlight Swim and Smoking Keyboard and Silly and Gazpacho

My fingers and keyboard are smoking. Just got done writing something that came forth during the Alchemist Theatre presents “Resistance” event tonight. I love being in the “zone” like that. Except I forget to breathe sometimes! Oops! Thank you Alchemist Theatre peeps!! Love you much and now I’m off to bed! I could not go to bed with all that floating in my heart! xoxo

I may be mistaken. Yet, I don’t think it’s likely the water in the kettle will heat this way. Attempt #2 forthcoming …. 😂😜

I posted this on facebook and many friends commented they had done this and worse … So, I have created a group for us: Absent Minded Stove Users United …. Hahaha!!

Not quite as yummilicious as freshly made. Yet, still, oh so yummy!! Love, love, love gazpacho!!! I could have this for lunch every day!!

Thomas not so sure about the dude who keeps trying to get him to do a somersault.

If there’s anything stackable near, Lillian does this. No matter what it is. She will try to stack things that many would look at and dismiss as not possible.

**THROWBACK POST**

December 30 2015:

Was taking Thomas’ library books out of the bag for him. Among the Andrew Lost, Boxcar Kids, guinea pig books, and tons of books with world records and interesting facts; there are these books. You go Thomas, you go! Seriously, I am so curious to see what he will do with all this knowledge as he progresses on his journey! xoxo
