Too Many CLOTHES!!!

I feel like our clothes are growing. I don't know how they do it, but the laundry seems to never be done or never completely folded. Or the kids are constantly outgrowing things and I have boxes full of clothes to be stored and they seem to be piling up. How could we possibly have so many clothes!!!!?? I swear that I just cleaned out drawers a few weeks ago--well I did, but I have more stuff to clean out of both of their dressers. But I have a new favorite treat. It beacons me and helps me get through folding laundry so I can go sneak a bit as my reward. I love brownies. I adore brownies. I crave their ooey gooey goodness, but we've been trying to cut back on sugars and unhealthy treats and I came across a recipe for raw brownies. It's simple, fast and easy.
1 cup Dates
1 cup Pecans
unsweetened cocoa powder to your taste
I'm drooling just thinking about it. I actually like to add more pecans than dates. It's my preference. You can either eat the deliciousness right out of the food processor( or whatever you use to blend them) or you can press them into a pan and slice up some deliciousness. I made some last night and am tempted to make some now. Hmmm. Maybe I'll fold some laundry so I deserve a treat. I also have a new recipe for Cashew Carrot Curry soup--But I'll save that post for later this week. I'm off to fold laundry so I can eat some brownies.

SOunds yummy I will have to try some. I felt the same way about laundry but now I have a designated laundry day and I have a goal to get all the clothes washed that day and then either that night or the next night after Jared and the kids are in bed I fold it all and watch a show I love. It has been awesome and I actually look forward to it everyday!

July 28 Ketchikan Alaska

So I may be grateful that we camped out, but it literally rained all night long. And the sad news was that the sun wasn't coming out so we had to keep shaking out the rain fly repeatedly hoping for it to dry out. The good news is that it wasn't raining. The silver lining is that Isaak had so much fun playing with some kids from Smithers. They tromped around again all morning long. Isaak is brave. He saw kids running around and immediately went over to get involved in the game with no hesitation. They welcomed him instantly. I think it may have been Isaak's favorite campground because of how much fun he had. It made packing up wet stuff much easier. The rain fly was almost dry when we had to roll up the tent and get headed to Prince Rupert to check in for our ferry. We hoped to leave around 930-10am, but we didn't We wanted to go check out a preserve, but we plainly ran out of time. Prince Rupert is a cute little beachy port town. We did drive through downtown and had l…

July 29 Ward Lake & the Library Ketchikan

It's raining it's pouring the old man is snoring. He's really snoring. It's been down pouring since we got here last night and it poured all day long. We got up and headed out to Ward Lake to a BBQ with their church.  It's beautiful. The kids thought it was the best ever because they had donuts, chips, hot dogs, watermelon, cherries and cookies. Isaak of course immediately started playing with some kids his age. Chloe and Lydia frolicked around in the woods and played horseshoes. It stopped raining for maybe 10 minutes, but other than that it picked right back up. I was sure they were going to cancel the BBQ, but again the kids seemed indifferent to all the rain. Some of them were even kayaking. I was too busy freezing! The hike around the lake is 1.5 miles and we saw a beaver den sans beaver. We walked around the Lake and it was like being submerged in the rain forest. Well it's not like being submerged in a rain forest. We were in a rain forest called the Ton…

The Farthest North Point & Settlers Cove

The rain continues to come down. I've never seen it rain like this before. Teana and Derek told us that the rain is more consistent with weather in October than in the summer, but weather.com promises that a warm front is in store for tomorrow. We went to church in an amazing building. The ward house was completely built in Cedar. Apparently the church shipped a cedar kit and the members of the church in the area worked with general contractors to put it together. It's beautiful and it smells so good!!! Chloe didn't want to go to primary by herself. At first I was trying tough love, but she started weeping. Okay. So she was actually trully scared. I sat with her in primary and then someone in the sharing time chose to sing Gethsemane. Chloe immediately relaxed. I was again aware of how much Heavenly Father cares for his children. Gethsemane is Chloe's favorite song and she always sings it when she's sad or asks us to sing it for her. She then said it was okay if I…
