Heather told a random stranger at Stake Conference awhile ago that she didn't have any brothers or sisters because her mom was too old to have any more babies. Nice. (There's a lot of truth to that when you come down to it, but do we really need to be sharing that information with the world? The joys of having a three-year old!)
I found DVDs of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency at the library recently, and following the advice of one of you (I can't remember which one, sorry!) I checked it out. Love it! I'm not a big fan of the African chanting -type music that you hear sometimes, but aside from that, I find it everything that I love. Quirky, suspenseful, good-hearted, funny, clean, and charming. What could be better?
You'll remember that I'm trying to eat better, right? Well, have I found a guilt-free treat! For breakfast at least three or four times a week, I have a bowl of Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal. It's basically like minute rice, but for steel cut oats. I take about 1/4 to 1/3 cup, pour boiling water over it, and let it sit for as long as it takes me to cut up whatever fresh fruit we have on hand. Sometimes I add a little sugar if the fruit is on the tart side. The oats are a little crunchy, but that's the way I like them. It is heaven. So far I've had it with strawberries, apples (and brown sugar), and mangoes. I've yet to be disappointed.
If you would have told me
