2 cups of unbleached flour
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tbs sugar
4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp vanilla
Heat waffle iron per manufacturer's instructions. Beat eggs. Combine rest of ingredients in order. Beat until the batter is smooth and consistent. Pour 1/2 cup batter on the waffle iron.
For vegan waffles, one could substitute 2 tbsp flour, 1/2 tbsp shortening, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp water for eggs and soy milk for regular milk.
I cleaned my desk but kind of took a nap instead of listing my books on half.com.
I did email the eateries and my father decided he wanted to eat larger seeds than the pumpkins I have will generate, so I'm waiting for him to get me some large pumpkins.
I didn't stretch but will do that before I go to bed.
Tomorrow, I'm going to church and then the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in the afternoon, followed by eating at Bluewater Grill.
My to do list will be pretty short:
2) Make a chocolate waffle for breakfast.
That's it! I'm looking forward to a pretty sweet day tomorrow!
I'll take pictures of the waffle making process then, too!

Okay, yay for waffles tomorrow!!!

I know, this picture is a year old, but it's still one of my favorites.
In my stretch book, Zone 1 is all about upper legs, hips and trunk. It's nice to start an exercise program but I'm more looking forward to Zone 2, shoulders! Hopefully I'll be able to be correctly limber to get rid of most of my shoulder pain.
I did laundry, I stretched, adding one new exercise to the other six that I've practiced and I moved the pumpkins to the garage. Saturday, I plan on setting up a card table and cleaning out the pumpkins then.
Didn't clean the desk, nor did I email eateries. I have a letter set up for businesses, I just haven't gotten the email addresses. At this point, I'm getting sleepy and I have a whole weekend ahead of me, so I'll conquer these things at that time!
Things to do tomorrow:
1) Have bible study with Tiff
2) Email businesses
The other things I will do on Saturday.

I read the magazines and pitched them except for one issue of Scientific Mind.
Didn't clean desk nor dug up books to list.
Uhm, neither did I inventory the pantry.
If AT&T wifi was any good at Barnes and Noble, I would have got more vegan meals plans, but I did check out Veganomicon (awesome cookbook), and I plan on purchasing it soon.
I did enjoy Barnes and Noble with my friend Laura! She's cute and fun!
I didn't get to the pumpkin patch, nor did I match my black socks or email local eateries.
However, I did do some stretching and added two exercises.
1) Email local eateries regarding vegan entrees
4) Clean desk
5) Do laundry
Right now, I'm going to sleep. Later!

Elmer was in the harness, but we've decided to get him a different harness, and he really gives me dirty looks when he's in it.
Didn't get to the pumpkins - it was dark by the time I was ready.
Read the intro and four exercises in the stretch book.
Practiced those four exercises.
Didn't match up my socks. Not an urgent task.
To-do list for tomorrow, 11/4/09
1) Read magazines in room, then pitch them
2) Clean desk
3) List books on half.com
4) Inventory my part of the pantry
5) Find more vegan meal plans
6) Enjoy Barnes and Noble with friend Laura
7) Get the pumpkins around and ready to be massacred
8) Match black socks
9) Stretch - add a few more exercises to the ones already known
10) Email local eateries to know if they have vegan meals on the menu
My guess is that I'll get through items 1, 5, 6, 8 and 9 tomorrow, but wanted to give myself more things if I happen to find the time.
1) Put a harness on Elmer
(We really would love to have him be outside with us, but he runs away when we put him on the ground.)
3) Clean out pumpkins to get the seeds
4) Read a part of "The Stretch Book" because I'm tired of my back and neck and shoulders always hurting
(Ow. : ( Sad.)
5) Do some stretching
6) Match up my black socks
(They're in a pile and it's going to be a pain to look for a pair of socks in the morning.)
Okay, so I feel better - I don't want to abandon this blog, and writing everyday is important to me, so I'm glad I'll be able to continue writing about "Things I did today" and not feel bad for occasional short posts.

After the exploration of science, they made dinner and we played Uno drums.
