blog slacker


i admit, i have been a blog slacker. 
so my goal to write every day has slid down the 
slippery slope of laziness...or sheer lack of anything 
very exciting going on in my life. 
actually i like it that way. 
if there is no drama in my home, i am happy.

so the subject of this post is chocolate covered raisins
i use them as bait for dane to do his homework. 
and they work. 
this tiny little chocolately treat works well to get him in 
the kitchen, pencil in hand, his scattered little mind on homework. 
if only it were that easy when they get older.

”We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. 
Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.”
