Here's Another One

Can you BEEEE-LIEVE this? A miniature gingerbread house on the side of a cup of cocoa? Oh My! Where do these people find the time? Maybe in a previous life I might have done something like this or maybe in a lifetime after this one.....But, right now, it AIN't happenin'. If you come to my house for hot cocoa, you will be lucky first of all, if I even have any hot cocoa and second, I might (and that'a big might) give you some miniature marshmallows to go on top.

However, I do have the next two weeks off so who knows. Maybe I'll make a couple dozen of these little treats. LOL They are AWFULLY cute!

Hip, Hip, Hooray!

DD and I just, and I mean JUST, finished up Algebra for the 1st semester. YIPPEE!!! Did you hear the shouting?!?! What a relief to be done with that! It's been a struggle all the way through, but she's finally getting it. Maybe now I can have a life (at least until January) LOL.

It is not my custom to allow TV viewing during Algebra time because DD is VERY EASILY DISTRACTED, especially when she's having to do something she doesn't want to be doing in the first place. However, tonight I made the one-time exception so that we could watch Susan Boyle on TV Guide Network. We watched her video on YouTube several months ago as she auditioned for Britain's Got Talent so we knew she was a wonderful singer. During the show tonight, they didn't actually ever show her singing the song, but I kept hearing clips of "Wild Horses" by the Rolling Stones. Don't throw rotten tomatoes at me, but I'm not a real big fan of the Rolling Stones. However, I am familiar with this song and I knew it wasn't the Rolling Stones singing it on the show...I could at least tell that much. So I went to my trusty dumbputer and looked it up on YouTube. WOW! Susan Boyles version of "Wild Horses" BLOWS the Stone version outta the water! You HAVE to listen to it. Click here and turn up the volume: WILD HORSES.
