Where for out thou socks?

Where are my fingers?
Todays Thirsty Thursday is brought to you by things i can not find...

My black hair elastics did the editing
My matching gym socks picked the font
That super cute pink t-shirt decided the layout
The jar of nutmeg i bought last month checked the spelling
My tweezers just sat on the couch and looked bored (i have a sneaky suspicion that my couch eats tweezers and one day 5 will just appear after a long gestation period)
My purple mittens reminded me its Thirsty Thursday, I kind of forgot!
My mind came up with this lame post idea!

{dramatic pause}....

One thing i can find is all the ingredients for this delicious smoothie!

Apple Pie Smoothie

1 apple cored
1 cup of vanilla soy milk
1 Tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 cup of greek yoghurt
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of nutmeg (but you know if you can't find it ANYWHERE feel free to sub with pumpkin pie spice)
2 handfuls of spinach

Blend while you walk around looking for where you put your car keys because you are


I read the back of a book once in the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris and was immediatley smitten but after a 10 hour flight home with a delay in Nova Scotia to pick up lobsters (i fly economy, lol!) I had forgot the name of the book, 2 years later I discovered the author Cecelia Ahern who is widely known for writing the book "PS: I LoveYou" which they adapted into a movie starting Hilary Swank - anyway i'm getting sidetracked, i enjoyed her books so much i started reading them all one at a time and I stumbled across the book I saw in the airport, she was the author, This does relate to the post I promise, here is the book summary from the authors website:

Since Sandy Shortt’s childhood classmate disappeared twenty years ago, Sandy has been obsessed with missing things. Finding becomes her goal- whether it’s the sock that vanished in the washing machine, the car keys she misplaced or the graver issue of finding the people who vanish from their lives. Sandy dedicates her life to finding these missing people, offering devastated families a flicker of hope.

Jack Ruttle is one of those desperate people. It’s been a year since his brother Donal vanished into thin air. Thinking Sandy Shortt could well be the answer to his prayers, he embarks on a quest to find her.

But when Sandy goes missing too, she stumbles upon the place – and people – she’s been looking for all her life. A world away from her loved ones and the home she ran from for so long, Sandy soon resorts to her old habit again, searching. Though this time, she is desperately trying to find her way home…

Such a great book, its not realistic by any means but i really enjoyed the story and the author always manages to bring a few tears to my eyes - i'm sure those of you that have seen "Ps: I Love You" can relate to that, that movie made me a bawl a little bit, okay i'll be honest, that was an understatment: multiple boxes of kleenex were injured during the viewing of that movie!


Sorry for the shortish post today friends, you see i can't remember where i put the rest of it, hahahaa (lame!)

See you tomorrow for TGIF :o)
Here is a picture of the baby for your viewing pleasure
