299 - Steaming Chai from My New Pot

Via Flickr:
My 3 quart pot handle broke about six months ago, and I finally got around to getting a new pot. It has a pour spout and strainer lid - great for straining my morning chai. BTW, I really did take this even though I am in the picture. I have been using the tripod and self-timer more lately.

I came home, and the whole house smelled like cinnamon! George had made snickerdoodles! One summer, I made these everyday, and I would do cooking demonstrations for the younger kids in the neighborhood.

This is where I write. I just finished 1 Kings 3 & 4. Love to look out my window and drink chai. I got the tripod out to document something I spend 10-15 hours a week doing.

I am taking this Saturday to work (meditating in Scripture and writing really isn't work though) ahead since I am gone for eight days in November.

276 - Evaluation with Shandra

Via Flickr:
Finally, I was able to get together with Shandra, a trainer at the Timberhill Athletic Club. She evaluated my overall condition so I could make sure I was well-prepared for the Surfin' Safari in November. She noticed how I compensate because of all the weird abnormalities with my body! It was great and helpful, and I loved the color of these blocks she used in the evaluation!
