The dreams I have

Do you ever wake up and wonder why you have the dreams you do…

In my dreams last night I was standing on the shore looking at what I thought was a pirate ship

I looked thru a telescope to see and I noticed that it was on fire! I waved my arms and yelled trying to let the people on the boat know that there was dry land over here 

Then I realized that X marked the spot

I woke up before I found out if anyone from the ship found land or if there were buried treasure under that X. Maybe I’ll get a nap and try to see if I can dream it again.

Do you have dreams like this?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?


Journaling is fun

So on the first day of 2017 Ohiophotogrl started filling out a journal so I thought I’d do it do

We fill it out the first part in the morning before we get started with the asks what we are grateful for. The first thing I wrote was I am grateful for you all reading my blog :0) Then it asks for a goal to live fit for today. That one changes from day to day. Mostly I wanna keep moving. It’s hard for me to stay in shape. Then it asks for one thing I appreciate about my body. All things I need to get better at. 

Then later in the day we have a place for there what I eat, how much I move and lastly a place to reflect on the day.  

I think everyone should journal. In your journal you can write what ever you want. You can draw, write your feelings, really anything you want. This is just we what started doing.

Do your journal? What do you write in your journal?

We need an overhaul

So today ohiophotogrl and I worked in some new themes for the blog.

We spent an hour looking thru several till we locked in on this one. I like the yellow. It’s something we haven’t tried before and it makes me stand out :0)

Do you have a blog you would like us to check out? Let us know we would love to go see it. 

Do you aspire to be a blogger. Do it! It’s a lot like journaling but the whole wide world can see it!

Wonder what we are gonna do next?

Did you build a snowman

We had some snow last night and I got out there and built a snowman!

It sure was fun being outside but I didn’t stay out long. When I can back in Ohiophotogrl made me some hot cocoa and boy was it yummy!

What do you like to do on a snowy day?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Winter is showing itself 

Today we had a bit of snow in the 937.

It doesn’t seem to stop me and ohiophotogrl from getting out and getting stuff done :0)

I like when it’s light and fluffy like this. However I should go find my hat and scarf. It sure is cold out here. Please Remember to wear your coat, your hat, a scarf  and your gloves if you go outside in this stuff. You could get frost bite and that just doesn’t sound like any kind of fun.

What is frostbite you ask? 

Frostbite is an injury that is caused by exposure of parts of the body to the cold. The cold causes freezing of your skin and underlying tissues. Your fingers, toes and feet are most commonly affected.  If you feel cold let your parents know. Very important to keep warm.

I work out

I am trying to get in a routine so I can get more exercise. We have been watching out food portions! We have been walking more and I have been lifting weights.

As much as I love to play video games ohiophotogrl makes me turn off my game and go for a walk if it’s nice out. I like to walk. I get to see birds while I’m outside. If it’s cold we go to he mall to walk around.

We have been eating more veggies and we have cut almost all our soda pop out. I don’t know about you but I could drink a Dr Pepper with every meal. Not so much anymore. 

What do you do for exercise?

What to do with Sticky Notes

For Christmas Ohiophotogrl got lots of sticky notes…she does love them. I know for a fact that she has more different kinds than our local Office Depot lol

And that’s just the Christmas stash….there are two shoeboxes in the office full of them in every shape and color you can imagine.

What does she do with these wonderful sticky pieces of paper? She tags pages in cookbooks so she can find them again, she puts reminders on her keys so she doesn’t forget things, and she even leaves little sticky notes on mirrors to remind herself of things like….

I left that one for her to find this morning! She liked it a lot!

What do you use sticky notes for?

Elephant Poo Paper…OMG

See this really cool journal…well it is made up of a mixture of elephant dung (poo) and post consumer paper. The book says it was pulped to perfection by the elephants of Sri Lanka. Ohiophotogrl’s newphew picked this up for her at the zoo on his last trip.

It’s funny to me how boys of all ages think poo is funny. It’s wrapped in plastic and ohiophotogrl has been hestient to open the wrapper….heee heee

The back shows how it’s done


Me wonder how one can sanitize poo but then again, I’m sure I don’t wanna know.

Our local zoo carries these notebooks but there is a website on the back of the notebook you should check out

What is Gluten?

So ohiophotogrl and I have a friend that is showing signs that she might have a gluten allergy.

We decided to look it up and investigate. What is a gluten allergy…well it is a Sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.

So we found a Scone recipe that has no gluten in it.

So we needed:

We are gonna use a little bit of real sugar instead of the stevia. 2 teaspooons of regular sugar to be exact. Then we preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Then we mixed the dry ingredients in a bowl! Stir it around a bit with a fork.

We got out the Kitchen Aid mixer and put the eggs in and mix them up. Then goes the milk! Mix it up and add the coconut oil. Mix some more. Add the dry ingredients and turn the mixer on again. It makes kinda a dough. Add some dried fruit if you want. I added apricots and cherries.

It looks like this before you put it in the oven.

Take a spoon and drop little spoonfuls on a cookie sheet. And put it on the oven.

The recipe says bake for 20 minutes. Mine weren’t done then I had to back for 24 minutes. You want the sides to start browning and when you put a toothpick in the middle, you want it to come out clean!

All I can say is Yummy! We sprinkle a little powder sugar on top and serve!

Boy that was fun!

Jan 1,2017

Today starts a new year. A fresh start if you will. Ohiophotogrl and I are looking forward to some great adventures this year. We want to show you some of the cool things that are around where we live and even go to some places not so close as well.

Not only adventures outside but indoors as well…like cooking special dishes…taking care of the dogs…even chores (I don’t like to do them either but we have too.)

The possibilities are endless!

That’s Ohiophotogrl ready to blog us into 2017!

We are ready to rock on the New Year!
