Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Coffee, anyone?

Did you know
-that people who drink coffee are less likely to commit suicide than people who don't
-The average American drinks 3.4 cups of coffee a day
-there are 1,000 different chemicals in a cup of coffee - 26 of them have been tested to see if they cause cancer in lab rats and 13 of them do
-in the 1820s a temperance movement tried to ban coffee - and they almost succeeded
-coffee beans aren't beans, they're fruit pits, making coffee the most consumed fruit in the US
-iron fortified milk turns coffee green
-when coffee first arrived in Europe it was known as Arabian Wine
-the French writer Voltaire drank 70 cups of coffee a day (I wonder how much he slept at night!) -one tsp of liquid nicotine or 1/2 ounce of pure caffeine are considered lethal doses for a 150 pound man.

OK, time for a Timmies!

The end of another week. Semester two is off to a good start. Yay! Everyone loves their teachers and their classes. Yay.

Spencer has a three-hour DYB practise tonight which means one of us will need to try and kill time in North York for three hours. I think I will see if John wants to go see a movie after we drop Spencer off. What else can one do for three hours on a Sunday evening in Toronto?

I know, I know. Pretty boring week around here. ...but trust me ... boring equals good in my house. Boring means things are going well for everyone.

Here's my layouts from this week.

    Wow, THREE hour practise, our boys have a TWO hour and they think that it is long. Yeah a movie sounds like a good idea.

  2. I'm glad I don't drink coffee. Please don't tell me that tea is even worse!

  3. I love the smell of coffee but I do not like to drink it. Thanks for the education. To keep you going during DYB's three hours, did you get two or three cups of coffee?

    The coffee facts are interesting, but I choose to ignore the scary ones. I love my coffee and wouldn't be able to function without it. *sigh*

    Great LOs, as usual. Your pages are always so classic and timeless. I love that you journal on every page. Sometimes I look and wonder what the REAL story behind the page is... you've always got a good story to tell on yours!

  5. OH what a cute layout!
