I’ve got a few random updates and one kid tip from a friend.
First, the implementation of the lessons in grace this past week went pretty well. I lived just a little slower, a little more genuine because of my focus on trying to be more graceful towards others. I also had to learn to be a little more patient, but I was rewarded with grace in return.
Outward grace is admirable and all. But, inward grace should be present, as well. With all of the stress associated with the holidays, this is one to remember. Be nice to yourself. Don’t judge yourself to harshly – keep your personal expectations realistic and kind. Every item in the grace blog post can be turned inward.
On another note, I finally got around to making the avocado chocolate pudding that I mentioned a few weeks ago. I made the whole Chocolate torte recipe from Oh She Glows. I had to use a glass pie dish and I had to shave off some of the extra crust to make it happen. But, that’s okay because I pressed the extra into 2 little ramikens and topped those with the pudding. This gave me a chance to sample the dessert before Thanksgiving Day!
It was delicious and I couldn’t taste the avocado when it was chilled. The pudding and crust combo was very decadent. It was super chocolatey!
And, finally… a recipe that I’m “dying” to try on the next warm weekend we have… though, I realize it may be a while now that we’re heading into winter!
!!! Homemade Sidewalk Chalk !!!
Made from corn starch, water, and food dye.
Check out Val’s post here. Her adorable kids help to make this look fun. I can’t wait to try it with my kids. I just gotta find some bigger paint brushes first.
Happy (Almost) Thanksgiving!
