Cookies Anyone?

Mental Exhaustion, or maybe just exhaustion seems to find me these days. Thursday and Friday were absorbed in all day "Trauma Nursing Core Course" lectures followed by written and practical tests. On Saturday, The Dolphin Goddess, Mist and I went on a distance run. It was fun catching up with my Dolphin Friend. That night Mist and Fiery came for supper and we watched "Bells of Innocence" with Chuck Norris. Its a fabulous movie (but creepy) in case you've never watched it. My husband recently hooked up our surround sound and he is all about man movies now.
On Sunday, after a 2am bedtime, we got up and headed off to church. Afterward we went to see Elasta Woman and Matthew's new house. He is an incredibly gifted woodworker and everything he makes leaves a mark of vision, creativity and passion right down to the potty chair he crafted for their youngest girl. The new home they are building is no less than inspiring. We grilled elk burgers, visited, and us women packed the babies a couple of miles down a new trail loop they're working on.
Today, after a full school day, I put Moonbeam down for her nap and escaped to the river with Mist and a new friend. I haven't named her yet, since we haven't spent a lot of time together yet. She came to our accountability group last week and she's going to be around for while. The three of us kayaked together for about 2 hours. It was a fun excursion.
Elasta Woman and I are planning are planning an Extreme Chicks Hike. Its a hike deep into the back country along a creek to some far lakes. I loved the idea of opening it up to lots of women, though the hike is 8 miles of various terrains. So far 7 of us are planning to go. I've never planned anything like this before, so its all new territory for me.

I have made yoghurt by after adding the culture, putting it in jars or tupperware containers, and then into a cooler (ice chest) with warm water (about 110 degrees)and then letting it sit several hours. It worked quite well.
I really liked Bells of Innocence too. Chuck Norris is one of my favorite actors. Sounds like you guys are going to have fun on your hike. Hope its a good time.
