Wowee! What a week.
We lost power for almost 2 days just before Christmas (as the temperatures were headed towards 12. Yikes!).
Then, sadly, we had a brother of a friend pass away.
Then, the wife of one of my husband's colleagues passed away suddenly from cancer.
Then the power went out again.
And today, as my husband returned from one of the funerals with the boys (I was wiped out from all of this), our car was hit by a pickup truck.
I think it's enough already.
Time for a light-hearted movie. And we've been watching a lot–kind of as a new Christmas tradition. But I could use another one.
Or a game.
Or all 3 :).
Anyhow, I hope this post finds you having a little bit better of a week than this.
Though I do have a lot to be thankful for.
Hubby not hurt badly.
Car still running.
Onward to some deals this week that you can be thankful for too! From Great courses to Superb Coconut Oil to Free Ebooks. Enjoy the Savings…

New to Tropical Traditions? You'll get a free book with great info about coconut oil as well as a load of great recipes.
Pizza. Grain free. Yes! Most of these recipes call for eggs in the crust, but I think it's worth trying without or with an appropriate substitute for your diet. Pizza lovers–this is for you! Plus, the topping recipes look great as well.
Some of these recipes have too many dates for my low glycemic lifestyle, but if you can sub for those (I'm thinking chia and a low glycemic sweetener) then you've got a really good thing going here.
Chia is one of those great powerhouses of nutrition. It's in my Chocolate / Carob Pudding and Dairy Free Berry Mousse. Yum!
If you haven't tried those, you should–chocolate pudding healthy enough for breakfast–yeppers.

And now..a word from one of my sponsors… (sounds pretty neato official,huh?)
10% off Great Almonds
Whenever I tell folks that most almonds on the market have Engine Fuel on them, I get the inevitable “ICK!” response.
And for good reason. Who wants engine fuel on their almonds?
Stop eating engine fuel and get Just Almonds almonds instead. Now, the FDA says that the engine fuel is all gone, but I don't care. I'm not buying PPO covered almonds. No thanks. These taste better anyways. I can't believe how much better they taste than the grocery store almonds. Guess engine fuel isn't naturally tasty.
Get 10% off Superbly Sweet Almonds (and almond flour…) with CODE WNM– at Just Almonds.
That's it for this week–see you on Monday.
