A Wiggle and a Jiggle

It’s sort of refreshing to start posting again. Exciting, even. I really don’t know what I’m going to talk about, but I’m sure something will happen that’s blog-worthy. Until a cohesive topic strikes, here is some randomness.

I got a haircut.


And some cute new gym clothes. I needed some motivation to get back to lifting, and Athleta’s winter sale was more than happy to help me out there.

And I made jellies!



I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while. I love jelly stuff – jelly beans, Swedish Fish, gummy bears. And since I’m looking for all sorts of ways to heal up my hamstring tendonitis, I heard that gellatin and bone broth are good for all your muscles and, you know, connecting tissue thingys. I believe that is the technical term. Anyway, I saw the recipe on Balanced Bites a while ago and was grooving to try it. The verdict? They are perfectly gummy in every way. It reminds me of those Jello jigglers as a kid. Seriously the easiest thing I have ever made, on par with microwaving eggs, but they ended up quite sour despite using the maple syrup to sweeten them. But I love to pop a few down whenever I wander past the fridge. Next time I might try the berry variation to see if that cuts down on the tart.

We went out last night, and I came home to this.



“Hey Mom, I thought you might get bored when you go to bed tonight. So here’s my dump truck to entertain you.”

I worked from home today, so I whipped up a quick lunch for Hulk and myself. It turned out so pretty, I’d hate to not share it.


Just spicy sausage, onions, and spinach pan-fried in butter.

And hey, it’s Friiiidaaaay! Let’s kick back and celebrate the weekend. And do a little rain dance. We are in a serious drought, and the governor has called a state drought emergency. As much as I’ll be sad that it’ll rain on my work commute, I’d rather have full and happy reservoirs!

  1. Seriously, how great are those jelly things?! Love them. One night I went to bed and Will, mr almost 3, had left Geoff Wiggle tucked in on my pillow (don’t know if you guys have the Wiggles over there).
