Take one look in my work bag or backseat of my car, and you’ll learn fast: Organizatin isn’t my strong suit.
I am, however, a problem solver. Today’s organizatin photo features froyo from the RV food court. I’d encountered a problem on my previous cup: Toppings that stayed at the top. As first-world as this sounds, it needed a solution. A dose of organizatin.
I found one, with careful planning.
I led with a swirled base of strawberry-vanilla froyo, but just a layer. I followed with scoops of Snickers and Butterfinger crumble, and topped that with a couple more swirls of froyo. I stopped to add M&Ms and Reeses’, then buried that below more strawberry/vanilla.
Lastly, I went all out with sprinkles, M&Ms, and more toppings.
The result: A surprise in every scoop. I found conglomerations of Snickers and Butterfinger (or was that Reeses’?) bound together amid the frozen layers of froyo. Every bite had a chance for toppings, even those not on top.
Speaking of not staying on top …
Influenza has chosen my body as a host right now. As I destroy G2s and devour Ritz crackers, I’ve not been as good a blogger as healthy me would be. Feverish, I’m lousy with the publish button. So I’m extending the month.
For the challenge, anyway.
I have lots to shoot and tell. Including how I incorporated pink into a one-day 3v3 soccer tournament with Grace and Marie. And a rare snapshot of sisterly love and affection for family day.
Rather than rush, I’ll take my time.
I also want to tell you about a cool event Grace and a friend will compete in the LEGO Ninjago Obstacle Course next weekend in Pineville. It’s going to be a blast, and there’s still time to put together your team and compete, too.
Here are highlights:
- Large Scale LEGO Models of Master Wu and Lloyd standing at 80” and 62” tall
- Four challenge arenas – Fire, Lightning, Energy and Earth
- Eight physical and mental challenges for teams to show off their physical and mental “ninja” skills – including mazes, puzzles and a building exercise
- One All-Inclusive trip to LEGOLAND California Resort to be awarded to the highest scoring team where they will compete in a Finale and a chance to win the Quest2NINJAGO championship – including an ultimate NINJAGO prize pack
Plus, everyone who comments on this blog and tells if their kids would try one of these challenges will be entered in a contest to win a Ninjago LEGO set! Just mention in comments how you think your kid would do in the challenge.
