Dare to Share #40

I don't know how it happens, but every time I sit down on the computer, I get distracted.  I have every intention to start writing right away, but somehow that doesn't seem to happen.  I tell myself that I will only take a quick peek at Facebook.  Quick and Facebook really should not  be in the same sentence.  First of all I am a Bejeweled Blitz addict.  I say to myself that I am only going to play a couple of games.  30 games later, I realize that I have wasted a half hour.  I then go over and check my newsfeed.  Sometimes, like tonight, that really does pay off.  I saw that the Kelloggs Family Rewards Codes were worth triple points today.  I had more than 10 codes to enter so that was a lot of extra bonus points.  Other days though, I find I just waste more time.  Finally a few hours after I start, I get back to what I sat down to do which is post this week's Dare to Share party.

I didn't do a lot of projects this week.  My oldest daugther's virtual school classes are almost finished.  Her semester ends in a couple of weeks, so I have been making sure she is getting everything finished.   I did make a couple of appetizers on New Years Eve that I will be posting shortly. I also enjoyed a nice cup of cocoa with peppermint marshmallows by the Christmas tree.

I am excited by what arrived at my house today.  I ordered the Wheat Belly cookbook, and hope to try several of the recipes in the book to improve my health.  I have high hopes, but some of the recipes look a bit on the complex side.

Valentine Heart Pops

I shared a really fun Valentine treat we made from leftover candy canes.  I have not been in the stores much this week, but I think you might still be able to find some on clearance.  You can see how we made them HERE.
