The New Extension

It’s very hard to see and the color is all off, but that is my newest creation, a hot pink dread extension to add a little color to my life! I have got a few new one’s done for my daughter, but this is the first Kanekalon one that I have made and it’s for me!!!

Definitely need to look into a steamer for future clients though. I am NOT doing each with a flat iron!

Can you see it? Isn’t she pretty?

Update on the IEP

Had another IEP for the Lemur King this morning… they were impressed how current he is with his skills despite his visual impairment. They were also impressed with his vocabulary, use of Sign and putting a few words together. They said I was doing a good job! I SO needed to hear that… Once a week Group and once a month with the Specialist! Woo hoo!!!

Basil Pesto Egg English Muffin

I get so tired of eating the same things meal after meal. A couple weeks ago I threw together something quick with what I had in the fridge and now I am addicted to it. Just threw an egg white in a pan and while that was cooking up I put an English muffin in the toaster oven. When the egg white was almost thoroughly cooked I put some feta cheese on one half of the muffin to melt up a bit.  Once all was done I added some basil pesto and a dash of red pepper flakes. Mmmm, so good.

I Don’t Even Run….

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

Making vegetable stock is so easy, yet I’m guessing that not all of you have homemade stock on hand. By the time I remember to make some stock, I only have half an onion or a single celery stalk to work with and something about buying a whole basket of fresh veggies just to boil them down into stock is sacrilege to me. To remedy the situation, here is an easy, why-haven’t-I-done-this-before tip for making your own vegetable stock: save veggie scraps, peels & extras in the freezer throughout the week and once the bag fills up, you’ve got your stock ingredients!

That’s the great part about stock– you can use the leftover parts of veggies that would otherwise go to waste. In addition to cutting up a few extra chunks of whatever vegetable I’m working with, I also save onion peels, carrot ends, leek greens and other scraps. I…
