In high school my Dad always called me, “Last Minute Liz.” So, here I am, at the last minute writing a blog post that was due 45 minutes ago. I’m not done procrastinating either. I’m going to go fix myself a Mojito. I have to find the scissors and a flashlight so I can harvest some fresh mint.
That took longer than expected because the recipe had to be modified when I realized I was out of limes. I grabbed a grapefruit from the neighbor’s tree and invented a new mojito with grapefruit juice. Yummy. Now I’m ready. Wait, where are my fuzzy writing socks?
I’m really excited to be participating in the 5 Minutes for Mom Blog Party again this year. I’m relatively new to blogging, but I do understand that the idea is to reach people and build a community. I spend a lot of time reading blog posts, so I’m looking forward to clicking a lot of links in the next week.
My blog is mostly about my current life as a single work at home mom to a 3 year old girl. We’re snowbirds, so we spend summers in Beautiful British Columbia, and the rest of the year in Southern California. How we got here is a long story that I am going to share at some point.
I’m also converting most of our favorite dishes to gluten free, so you’ll find some yummy GF recipes here. My little one was suffering from inflammation in her joints, and eliminating gluten from her diet seems to have made it go away. As an added bonus I stopped getting migraines, and I was having a 3 day migraine nearly every month. Coincidence? Perhaps, but do I want to start eating gluten again just to see if I can trigger a migraine? Uh, nope.
If you’re going to click any links on this post, I hope it will be this one: What Drowning Really Looks Like. We are already in the pool every day and I want to make sure parents are aware of how quickly things can go pear shaped in the water.
