Gymnasts on the playground

Another “lost” photo from my iPhone which I was meaning to post…better late than never.

photo eBrooke and Maisie are classmates and they are both on team and on TOPs at North Metro.  So what do two little gymnasts do when out on the school playground?  They practice leg lifts with legs going from horizontal to touching the bar above their head.  Funny little girls!  Oh and how many of these leg lifts can Maisie do with her legs never dropping below horizontal and always tapping the bar at the top?  Her record to date is 30 and she keeps talking that she wants to do 40.  I have no doubt, with her desire and drive that she’ll very soon reach her goal.

I have come down with a wicked head cold, ear aches, body aches and fever so dinner tonight and leftovers for Maisie’s lunch tomorrow has been ordered and will be delivered from the local pizza place very soon.  Easy-peasy, no mess, no clean up and Maisie will love it.  I’d much prefer my Blacksmith Pizzas, not that I’d even be able to taste them at this point and not that I can be bothered to make them as all I want to do is go to sleep, but I can dream about them.  Maybe when I’m feeling better I’ll fire up the grill and make one of my favorite combinations, Roasted Garlic Onion Jam, figs and goat cheese, YUM!!  To tempt you to make my delicious Blacksmith Pizza, a little food p0rn.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe as well as lots of other pizza variations and combinations.
