See that? I made it!

Sometimes it is apparent that all I seem to do is whine and complain with a side of trying (unsuccessfully) to be grateful.

But, some days, the planets align, the skies clear, the sun shines and a light breeze flows and you just… Breathe. In. Out. In. Out. Yes. Breathe.

Try it sometime, it is amazing how little we breathe. We just breathe enough to keep the minimum necessary amount of oxygen in our bodies. We run our bodies on empty. ALL.THE.TIME. Try it, try that deep cleansing breath.

OUCH! Right? Right? It HURTS to take a deep cleansing breath. It’s so wrong. Yet, so true.

Well, I’ve had a couple of days (in a row!) that felt like those deep cleansing breaths. They were wonderful. They were painful. They were scary. They were awesome! Sign me up for some more deep breaths, PLEASE!

I’ll bear with the pain. I’m kind of used to pain by now. So, switching it up to a pain that signifies being alive, well, maybe that’s what the doctor ordered.

I’ve spent a few days just being. Reading other people’s blogs, actually *crying* for people that I’ve never met, having conversations (via 140 characters!) with people I’ll probably never meet… And just breathing.

I have much to be thankful for. Even though sometimes I just keep concentrating on the things I don’t have. The things I want and dream of. I still have a LOT to be thankful for. Today, I’m thankful for new e-friends, blogs that make me cry and giggle, 16 pounds lost already (woot!) and hope.

And, who could ever forget, how much I love to… COOK!

You know what I refer to in the title of this post? This!

Pumpkin roll with Cream Cheese Icing

I only got THIS picture, because I was TOO excited. I made two pumpkin rolls. They got eaten up! (I only got this picture because my sweet husband took it, I didn’t get ANY!)

I was so proud! Yay!

So, today, I breathe. Rejoice in the technology that brings us closer together while still allowing me to be totally antisocial…

And count the days until I get my iPad.

Yes?

Maybe?

SURVEY: Have you eaten THIS?!!??

Yummy

I was browsing thru the Tag Surfer, where I found a blog post by Jenty, who said she got it from Jane (who I cannot reach), but who cannot track back to whoever did the original, about a questionnaire regarding strange foods from the world.

Anyways, I decided to turn the questionnaire into a Survey to see what you guys know about world foods and to see if you have eaten some of them!

Next week, I will be posting the most popular foods, and then the least known ones, with some pictures and descriptions!Β  We will all learn, have fun and feel yucky all at the same time!

TAKE THE SURVEY NOW!

Krispy Kreme bacon cheddar cheeseburgers

This must be the most horrible image I have ever seen. All of the wars of mankind cannot compare to the atrocity of this invention.

I want one. It seems cheaper than a gun, and quicker.
