Super Food Breakfast of Champions
{FYI this is an in-depth post about yogurt.  Yup, I'm weird, deal with it.} For always I've had a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  I love milk and cereal, so why not?  But as much as I love a bowl of crunchy cold goodness, it never filled me up for very long....

mini, helps
As mentioned, I've been behind on the crafting.  But, I've managed to do some mini projects: I picked up some mini glass candle holders/planters/i-don't-know-but-they-were-cute/ things at some point and painted them using Martha's all-purpose craft paint in...

chilly days
Spoon is having none of winter. even the mild form we've had this year.  So he's been curled up with the heated blankets: and looking pretty adorable too.  He has some new joy - Keeri gifted him a fresh catnip plant, and he seems to enjoy rolling around and...
