The Mushroom Mystery

This is the Ex-di with the latest news that everyone thinks is boring! ( But they still watch us) We have seen many mushrooms popping up all over town. We aren't sure if the mushrooms are poison, but we strictly advise all littlest pet shops, playmobil and humans to NOT EAT THE MUSHROOMS! Our best detective team is on the job, and have taken some photos for you to see.
                                            Michel was inspection the larger mushrooms....
                                                  Do you think fairies are taking over?
Do not even touch the blue mushrooms, they seem very dangerous.
We are still trying to solve this mystery, and we might never solve it, but we are on the case of the mushroom mystery. ~ Playmobil Ex-di mystery solving team.

I finished my 10K!

So on Sunday I did my 10K. It rained a LITTLE bit, and it was a little misty while running, but that is better than very hot weather, so I was happy. It was very well organized.
So how was the run?
It was harder,and when I ran I thought " Why on earth am I doing this? This is harder than I thought" But when I look back, I would totally do it AGAIN.
Were you first? No, I don't think I was even close, but I was doing this to FINISH, and ACCOMPLISH something. ( Also the 10K was a non competitive race) Now, I didn't really invite a lot of my friends to watch me because I kinda forgot, and also they would have to wake up VERY early. For me, I had to wake up at 5:00 AM. Was I really sleepy tired to do the run? Nope.
 Also this was on Father's day! This felt like a very long day, which was really cool! 5:00 AM-9:10ish ( Hey, I was tired!)  The morning was very long which was very cool, I just felt like it was an interesting day being long. There was a LOT of people in the run, it was also cool because there was places when people handed a small cup with some water in it, and it was funny because sometimes there was no garbage ( or I couldn't see a garbage while running) So at the water places there was all these white cups on the sides of the road.
What was your time? 58 minutes and 13 seconds. For me personal y and my personal time, this was the fastest I had ran on most of my runs, and I thought I had been VERY SLOW
                This was after the race, I just wanted you to see my whole outfit.
                                                Can you find me?

Old photo of Eva

                                    A while ago when I was grooming Eva I cut some of her fur near her back leg way too short!  So Esther thought it would be a good idea just to give Eva a puppy cut ( a short hair cut) Eva looks so cute now!!!!!! But this was still when she had long hair, and she looks so cute!
          Doesn't this look nice? Smell it. Yes, put your nose to your computer . Do you smell it? OK, I guess you can't smell it....
                                                Another nice flower...
Now here's something you wish you could smell could eat.
If you are looking at this post with your phone I hope you don't eat your screen thinking it's these cookies, that might not end well....... ~ Abby c.aK.e

Crafty Wednesday: Heart bitten apple tutorial

                                        This is a tutorial I did on my channel, so I thought I would also share it here! These apples are so fun to make, and I think they look soooo cute! ( Why didn't I say kawaii? Because I use kawaii for other types of cuteness, I chose not to for this one)
Here's something I thought I had to give up because of braces. Eating apples. When I was young I ate an apple EVERYDAY! I said it helped me sleep. But I heard you can't eat apples if you have braces. WHAT?!?! NO!?! But thankfully I CAN still eat apples, I just have to cut my apple into little pieces. Do you like apples? What is your favorite type of apple? Once I had REAL apple juice near my cousins house at a farm thing, and I will never forget that taste. Of amazingness, ( I know that isn't a word) Even though on the apple cartons sometimes they say " 100% real apple juice, No added sugar" it DOESN'T"T TASTE THE SAME!
I know this post was kinda weird, all about apples..........

To Tell You The Truth

Justin has a new episode of Justin's cooking show!  In this episode he makes brownies. Here's something funny; This recipe I used was Esther's cake in a mug recipe. ( Not the recipe I mentioned in the video, but I made a recipe off camera to make enough to fit in the pan) Well, they didn't get baked enough ( Esther said they were fine and not too soft) but I thought they were WAY TO SOFT and uncooked. Also, they tasted sooo gross. They were so dark, I didn't eat a lot of it.....I gave it to mom.......

But now lets get to the main part of this post. Why haven't I been blogging regularly? Well, I'm just going to be honest. I've been making time for other things, and because I'm trying to finish up school, train for a 10K, still craft, doing Gymnastics and starting renovations on the house I've really not thought a lot about blogging.
But I do think of you, and I miss you! I miss blogging, but also I've been trying to commit to other things like stretching every day ( PAINFUL I HATE MIDDLE SPLITS!). I am still here, and you will get some blog posts, but just not as often as you or I would like.
Eva, well, she gets groomed and then doesn't want to do anything after that but sleep.
Maybe I'll blog more, or maybe I won't BUT you'll still get posts once in a while.

So, I haven't told you this, but we have grass! It's no-longer a brown dead color, it's  GREEN! I think summer/spring is here, but it's been raining  a lot lately. We're getting April showers in May. But I'm thankful that we have rain not snow, or hail, and that we even get rain. Eva gets her paws dirty when it rains but thankfully mom washes her paws after taking her out so she doesn't get dirt everywhere. I'm happy the snow is no-longer here! Also, Eva rolled in a dead bird. We didn't know what she was rolling in, and she was in our front yard on a leash. Then later on when she was in the backyard, she rolled in the grass. Stinky dog!

Passover Party on the weekend, and Moms Birthday!!!

Last Thursday is was mom's birthday! Because she was working on our Passover evening, she wanted us to celebrate her birthday this week. We had a evening that we ate food that the Jewish people would eat during the Passover. I don't really want to explain much about what we ate, but it was very fun!!  Esther was also performing in our church's Good Friday service. She did great! We still have some snow, but it's melting. Yesterday while jogging I knew that next time I might wear my shorts because I was so hot. I hope it's getting warm near you.
