Have a few more cooking- but didnt get to photo them yet...
Today was also a bit of a ring day. My "Mondrian" ring was a fight that lasted for several hours straight. Had no idea it would be so thick and what ot would involve to bend it. So all of these gym workouts were leading up to one little ring!!
And for todays top 5 list:
5 THINGS I WOULDNT WANT TO BE TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR WITH:
1. 5 boxes of mint chocolate chip ice cream and a spoon
2. durian (any one who has been to Thailand knows what this is)
3. an insurance saleman
4. Jehova Witness's
5. a pack of angry beavers (not sure they ride elevators, though)
Until tomorrow... Mara xo
