I love surprises! Giving them more than receiving. Although, if I don't know about the surprise until it's actually sprung on me, I'm fine. I DON'T however, do very well when someone tells me in advance "I have a surprise for you".
I did get a nice surprise yesterday! I found out I was the winner of the "You Might Be a Raw Foodist...." Video Challenge on Raw Fu. So a huge thank you goes out to Gypsy Mama for starting it and to the lovely Bunny Berry for judging! I'm so blessed and happy!
Also, T doesn't know it yet, and doesn't read this blog, so I'm safe in saying it. I ordered his Exploring Creation with Zoology 1 book the other day. I let it come standard mail though, so it's going to take a wee bit to get here. Zoology is his career path, he told me that when he was 8 "Mom, I want to travel the world discovering new species of animals. I think I'll get my Zoology degree.", and he hasn't changed that in four years now. The boy has a 24 set animal encyclopedia set and a couple of other animal encyclopedia-type books and those are nearly always his choice for reading! So this new addition should continue to help put wind in his glorious sails!
And much to J's chagrin, Mommy wants to, even though he's reading, take him through Hooked-on-Phonics to make sure there are no gaps. SURPRISE buddy! :P He may not be happy about it, but at the same time, this mama only has his future in mind, and would like to see it be a spectacular one at that.
Baby girl has no surprises for us thus far. Although she did have her 9th birthday, so I'm sure there are some coming. I think I'll start bracing myself for those now.
As for the raw food front, there's even been a little surprise in that department. I've come to the conclusion that if I don't get my butt in gear and get these books/e-books written, T may beat me to the punch! He has 3 recipes that he's done all on his own. The first of which was the Strawberry Creamsicle Smoothie. Then there was the cheese-like spread, that one he hasn't made in a while, but MAN was it good, nice kick to it and everything. Well, the other day he outdid himself with an AMAZING salad dressing. You know how some dressings taste like they're a raw dressing? Well, not this one! I'm telling you, the boy is on a roll! Now, if life would just slow down a little, so I could get cracking! ;)
