Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Is there more?

Oh, why do we give a puck, a puck;
Oh why do we give a puck?

Across the ice and into net
The puck will make its lucky trek ~

In hopes the goalie has gone cold
So we can make that final goal ~

Oh, why do we give a puck, a puck;
Oh why do we give a puck?

Let’s cheer them on, the teams we meet
With toothless smiles and monster feet ~

Olympic Moms are oh-so-proud
And cheer among the frozen crowd ~

My favorite sport

I’ve never thought to be in the Olympics. There was no sport that captured my focus. I did, however, feel an urge to tell them their uniforms looked awful. Must we really stay with that ‘red, white, and blue’ scheme?(theme)

Such a struggle to find my way through all the sports; was there anything I could do? I heard the announcer say: “Hey, now we’re cooking!” So I got a box of cake mix and knew that was close enough for me; mixed it up, carefully reading the results to look for.

“You will know your cake is ready when it springs back to the touch. To check for doneness, stick a toothpick halfway into the center of each layer. When it comes out clean, your cake layer is done.” So there it was… my challenge and how to obtain the gold. I burnt my hand, accidentally pricked my hand, and gave myself a hand, for the layer not going flat.

Next came the icing. It was great; I simply opened this little can and spread it over each layer. I’m not sure what they meant about ‘tempering’ the chocolate at the top, but my own temper was getting hotter by the minute, so I skipped that step. It tasted good to me. So I moved on to my next event… curling.

I took out a nice clean plate, accompanied it with a lovely fork. Making my way to my family room, I ‘curled’ up onto the sofa to watch the Olympics! Isn’t life grand?

I really love snow

I hope that some are taking time to enjoy the 2010 Olympics. Once again the snow captures my heart for the winter competitions. I can't view enough of the treasures of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Just a few more days and they're gone again. I'll be back. :)
