Friday Favorites February 18th

One of my favorite things at this moment is seeing my son sleeping on the couch near the humidifier.  He was pretty upset just before falling asleep and knowing that he's sleeping soundly right now is reassuring.  He bonked his head at the park; jumped from a foot or so out of a tree and poked a hole in his knee (Spiderman bandages can do wonders!); the pear he was eating when that happened fell and got dirty (though we washed it and he finished eating it); and I think he's fighting off the cold his dad has.  That's a lot for a small body to deal with in one day.  I told him that sleep was the best thing for pain.  He wouldn't be able to feel what hurt, and his body would be able to repair damaged parts.  We also prayed for God to ease his suffering, and he was asleep in 5 minutes or less!

This was also a favorite:
Sugar had been jumping on and off my lap repeatedly and was panting.  I just happened to catch what looks like a pose, but she was still running all over the place!  Can you believe they'll be 4 weeks old Monday?

Little Leaps of Love has been fun too.

Little Leaps of Love
Pure, raw, organic cacao powder.
Big Tree Farms Raw Cacao Powder is one of nature’s single best sources of magnesium and contains more antioxidants per gram than red wine, green tea, acai or pomegranates. Our Cacao Powder is formed after expelling the butter from our hand-ground cacao bean paste. The remaining "cake" that is left over once the butter is removed is a precious and concentrated superfood retaining about 25% of its original fat content. The "cake" is cold-milled to a powder and then is either sieved fine for use as a drinking chocolate, or graded and packed as a coarser chocolate powder more suitable for breads, pies, cookies and cakes.

Oh yeah, that's the good stuff!  I put some in my smoothie yesterday and was in a far better mood than I have been for a long time.  Didn't do it today and well...not so joyous as yesterday!

What are some of you favorites from the week?
