No-Knead Bread

My sister, Charla, sent me this video from the New York Times and I have to say that it is fantastic and easy to make! Like I've said in a previous post (many moons ago), I was always intimidated by the thought of making bread because of the yeast factor. Well, not anymore. In this recipe the loaves come out looking so lovely and round. I could say more but you can just watch the video and see. . .xo

I love this song and video and so do my little ones. Their daddy finds good things for them to enjoy.

Ode to My little Dahlia at Two Years Old
I love her, I love her, I love her I do. One look at her perfect face, her bright eyes and her perfect everything makes my worries subside. She is my hope, my fountain of youth. She is determination, wild and free. Strength and laughter,
climbing, jumping, dancing without fear.

. . .And she has this new joke. If she wants to make anything funny she adds "toots" to the end. To her credit it is pretty funny. She and Soren laugh heartily during their joke time.

Save Sakineh

I have just visited GoPetition and found the following page extremely important in saving her life.

Please sign the petition by going here.

You can also go here to sign a petition for the release of her son, her lawyer, and two German journalist who are being held because they spoke out against her sentence and the human rights violations committed against her.

I took Soren and Dahlia to the park last night and while we were there I was encouraging Soren to jump off one of the levels of the play set without my help. He was reluctant and then said, "if you exist" and did it! Can he please stay five forever???

I think I kind of like "if you exist" better than "if you insist" just because it's awesome.
