  1. Here's one version. I used 6 cups of water instead of 4, and it was still plenty sweet. https://www.mexicoinmykitchen.com/cafe-de-olla-recipe/ As I was researching it, I came across a website that listed the best coffees to make it. Dancer's boyfriend brought NM Pinon coffee last week, which happened to be on the list, so that's what I used. I think I want to buy a clay pot, too...maybe this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YBL2X6T?pf_rd_r=6FYJH576FNFRSNMVGW9X&pf_rd_p=edaba0ee-c2fe-4124-9f5d-b31d6b1bfbee Although, I'd love something with a spout to make it easier
  2. I made brunch today: huevos rancheros that really weren't that because they were made with zucchini and bell pepper and I beat the eggs; blue corn pancakes, cafe de olla. Missing were the apple coffee cake muffins because I just didn't have time. I'll make them later. We stayed up late last night finishing the Green Ember Falls because there were only a few chapters left and they wanted to hear the end. We knew we'd regret it at 3am when the baby gets fussy...
  3. I don't remember. I just remember answering an ad for childcare and learning later it was Americorp. What's the link to the map thingy?
  4. I looked up several with Sock's link, but I've forgotten them all.
  5. Close enough. I like raspberry tea. Here, iced tea is usually unsweetened unless otherwise stated. You have to specify what tea you want here: hot (unsweetened), sweet (cold), iced (unsweetened), green tea, then there's the fruit menu... Racist? Hmmm.... Rude. Entitled. Lacking respect of a person's body. Objectifying. Treating us like a pet. No one should touch anyone, anywhere on their body, without their permission anyway.
  6. Same! We finally got a window unit (from our neighbor who passed away in December), but still don't turn on the oven much. Except for corn bread. That's a must. I like to put it in the oven when I put a crunchy topping. It doesn't happen a lot though. See above comment about heat.
  7. So did Baby Dancer, because preterm and lightweight. We were literally walking out the door of L&D, when the head nurse or some other came out and stopped us and said they forgot to do that test. We waited almost another 2 hours (we were already there an extra day). I'll send Gymnast. I've found out she has enough energy to tire out puppies. 😳 Wassup?! Long time no see.
  8. I used to do this. Between 2 dogs, 2 cats, a husband, 2 kids...I'd regularly call dh Luke (the older dog that has since passed), then have a mix of calling my girls either a cat name or one of my sisters. I was mess. I'm a little better now. Well, these babies have only been in the world a few minutes compared to the time they've spent in you, literally attached. I remind Dancer this is the 4th trimester. Of course she wants to still be attached. What's a BOB stroller? I had bought some woven material, cut it lengthwise, and had two wraps. It was the best
  9. Pantene is considered the cheap stuff? ... 😶
  10. No, not David. I was thinking of those 700 specially trained sling shotting warriors in Judges. I always wondered if left handers were specially recruited to that division of fighters. There's also those ambidextrous bowmen. Baby Dancer's birthweight was 5 pounds 10 ounces. She just got back up to that weight at around 3 weeks. Slings were easy to me. Pop em in, pull to tighten. I don't thing I had a name brand so maybe it was simpler. It has been a while... I used fabric to wrap Gymnast though. She was heavy and it was better on my back. Either way, I was able to get things done, ev
  11. Apparently, in the Bible, left handers were great sling shotters. That's 2.5 Baby Dancers! I had to do that to prepare for Gymnast's violin masterclass. she virtually attended a Suzuki camp a couple of weeks ago, so we had to send a video of her polished piece to the teacher so she knew what to work on. Thankfully, I'm familiar with Zoom and have had to upload several videos to YouTube this year, so it was easy. Really? Dh says that coyotes are mansos and more scared of people than anything. They are around here, but they don't do anything except so
