Throwback Post: Science Experiment Fun


August 17 2013:

Science experiment adventures at our house today ….. Growing crystals for Thomas and invisible ink for Lillian. The crystals are in Thomas’ room nice and quiet so they can grow for the night …. surrounded by our homemade rocks and cards with positive words so they can grow beautiful. Invisible ink is drying so I can decipher their message to me!

Team TLC and Romano Duo Christmas 2021 – Great Food With Harsh Driving Conditions and New Slippers

December 24 2021

Cranberry sauce and green bean casserole ready for tomorrow. Felt like cooking, experimenting, so made a vegan mushroom loaf for me and Thomas for tomorrow.

December 25 2021

Sending love to all, and warmth from 34 degrees! 🎄🎄🎄❄️❄️❄️🎄🎄🎄Team TLC, The Romano Duo, and Robert.

A beautiful afternoon with a lovely vegan dinner. My mom made vegan deviled eggs for me and Thomas. Very creative! Merry Christmas to all. May you be surrounded by love, joy, peace, and laughter.

Thomas took this photo during our drive home. This was right before I nearly threw up. 🤮 I have 4 wheel drive and can handle driving in snow, as long as I can go slow. However, when I can’t see the lanes, or the road in front of me, it absolutely unnerves me.

For local friends: Once I exited 580, getting on old 395, I was able to relax. I cannot handle the new freeway at night, in high winds or blizzard, snow conditions. I feel much safer on old 395, even though there was more snow on the road.

All good now. Car unloaded, ready to relax.

Thank you to The Romano Duo! Who else got new slippers? ❄️☕️☕️☕️❄️ And since I get holes in them so quickly, two sets!

Thanks to my daddy for the new cold weather boots. Wide toe box, barefoot/minimalist style, and vegan. Need to send them back for a half size bigger to allow room for cozy socks. Love them!

Christmas in a Cozy Cottage – Festive Fun with Camilla

December 17 2021:

Thanks to Sharon for having me participate in this fun feature!

Describe your ideal Christmas.

My kids and I would spend Christmas week in a cozy cottage in the forest. I would wake to find a steady flow of plump snowflakes falling, the ground covered in a sparkling, thick layer of snow. While the kids are still sleeping, I sit in front of the fire, with a view of the trees, my hands wrapped around a mug of hot coffee, made from freshly ground beans. I spend time reading while taking in the beauty of the moment.

Later in the day, after gifts have been exchanged, we bundle ourselves, going for a breathtaking walk amongst the snow covered trees. When we return we unbundle, slip into bathing suits, and have a soak in the warm, relaxing jacuzzi. We end the day by watching a favorite movie before drifting into a peaceful, restful sleep.

A drive to pick out a dessert cookie for Lillian.

Followed by a walk at one of our favorite spots. We got to see a fire rainbow, enjoy a beautiful, serene walk, ending with walking through the crunchy leaves.

Then a stop to pick up Noble Pie Parlor fries for Lillian.
