Look ! Books !!!!

Kind of a sidetracked sort of day yesterday. Spent much of it planning  and getting sidetracked by the rediscovery of my own study materials for Energy Medicine. Our homeschool year ends on Friday, and that means mommy can devote lots of time to her own studies for 9 glorious weeks. Moving the materials back to the front shelves in our dining room/school room meant stopping and glancing at the old bookmarks , remembering some of the more difficult points and ways that I was finally able to understand them and more. Good times, but not so good for movement !
Walking 4  min
Wii boxing 5 min ( stopped because Nick hurt his shoulder throwing punches)
Wii cycling 30  min

It was my birthday, and a treat was involved. The good thing about avoiding dairy ( except for in baked goods) is that it kind of shrinks your options. We had some angel food cake topped with sliced strawberries and coconut milk ice cream. It's nice to have some non dairy choices available, but it can be hard finding the best one for you. Coconut milk ice cream has a bit of a grainy texture that makes your mouth say "Ooh ! Ice cream !...WAIT A MINUTE, NO IT'S NOT !". I am going to have to investigate some of the other possibilities.

Very cool day today- should make for a good one !

Happy Birthday, Diane!!! Your birthday treat sounds yummy. I've never tried Coconut Milk Ice Cream but I've seen it in the stores and on blogs. I've heard raves about the Coconut Bliss brand, if you want to keep an eye out for that one!

Happy Birthday to you!! Glad that you were able to reflect on your school progress and enjoy your day. I had to laugh about the coconut ice cream texture!
