Revisiting winter2009-Walking through a Winter Wonderland

Watch the snowglobe slowly turn, as you hear the familiar Christmas tune.  I start to hum the music, and my hubby then sings the words to “Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Yes, I’m “saving” this video baby!; As I woke up this morning and walked into the room with the Old desktop, I find my Sweetie sitting at the “puter”, reviewing video files and saying I’m going to Delete this one.  Oh NO, that’s you singing.  I’ve got a personal YouTube site that I need to upload there first and on this blog.  So Here it is!  Or at least I hope it uploaded.

I’ll Post Snow pictures from January 2009- At a little snow for an AUgust morning to look at.

World Thinking Day- a Recipe

Many Girl Scouts and Girl Guides throughout the world will be celebrating World Thinking Day on February 22, 2009.   I grew up participating in the Girl Scouts, first as a Brownie and then  as a Junior.    Therefore I am happy  to write of  this celebration on my blog.

How will you be celebrating?

Some of the troops are having a travel around the world event with some games and entertainment from representatives from other countries, Celtic, African Drum Circle, and other s for Mexico, China, Phillipines, and Egypt.  They round it out with an ethnic Buffet.

Here, in the next day or so, I will post  recipes from a few countries.

This is what my niece is doing for World Thinking Day.

Her troop participates in a council program for World Thinking Day.  This year, they had to research a country (it alternates between states and countries).  They chose Brazil.  They had to come up with facts about the country to present to the other troops.  They gave out little Brazilian candies, and the swap was little paper Carnavales masks they made and decorated with feathers and sequins.
