Prickles ( update )

image image image image

Prickles is now 1 1/2 years old !!!!!he is about 12 inches long . It seems like only yesterday I went to buy him! He is ,in my opinion, more friendly than othe bearded dragons . Most bearded dragons like to be held and won’t bite and all that , but Prickles is all that and curious about things that happen outside his cage . He will chase flies and watch my siblings play!I’ve looked at pictures of prickles when he was a baby and I can’t believe how much he has grown !!!! At a point in his life I thought he wasn’t growing !! So I had to feed him extra crickets and more veggies!! I think it did the trick because prickles is huge now !!

One thing I do with prickles is watch his weight. A lot of bearded dragons are FAT so ever since I got him I’ve been feeding just the right amount of food not too much and not too little .The worst thing you can have is a FAT lizard ! You might be wondering “how does she know when he is full?”her is how I know !! When I try to feed him more food I hold it up to his face and he will close his eyes !!! It is soooo funny!  He mostly does that when I feed him broccoli!! I sometimes put berries and veggies .Prickles will pick out the berries and leave the veggies!!!

Prickles doesn’t do so very much during the day … All he does is sit on his log , move to a different log , eat , swim in his water , then go back to sitting on his log .  I often wounded what prickles thinks about all day !!!!

I think he had a pretty happy life thought . Crickets falling from the sky , food everyday he doesn’t have to hunt for , a pool ! I mean what more could he ask for !!!!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

This looks like a oatmeal cookiesgreat recipe ! Iwant to make it for my family because my family is mostly gluten free .

16 ounces old fashioned rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

10 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
6 ounces dark brown sugar
3 1/2 ounces granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 a cup of raisins (optional)
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread oats in a single layer on half-sheet pans and bake until lightly toasted, about 20 minutes. Remove the oats from the oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes.

Grind 8 ounces of the toasted oats in a food processor for 3 minutes or until the consistency of whole-wheat flour. Add the baking powder, cinnamon and salt and pulse to combine.

Combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, and mix on medium speed until light in color, about 3 minutes. Stop once to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Reduce the mixer speed to the lowest speed, add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl, if necessary.

With the mixer on the lowest speed, slowly add the oat mixture, the remaining 8 ounces of oats and the raisins until just combined. Stop once to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Scoop the dough with a 1-ounce ice cream scoop or disher onto parchment-lined half-sheet pans, leaving 2 inches between each mound. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, rotating the pans after 6 minutes, until the cookies begin to brown around the edges. Remove the pans from the oven and let the cookies cool on the pans for 2 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Orcas are quite amazing to read about and discover there amazing abilities . They astonish me in every way .

Though Orcas can weigh up to 22,000 pounds they are not part of the whale family like most people think, but are part of the dolphin family .Orcas are the largest member of the dolphin family . Orcas travel in pods like dolphins do.

Many other people have seen Orcas amazing talent in the way they think . So they have decided to capture  them form the arctic ocean ,and  have taught them how to do backflips and tricks for entertainment . Why this is bad is because, Orcas (king of the ocean) are very displeased to be living in captivity, so a lot of deaths have occurred .  Orcas also do not live as long as they do in the wild . In the wild Orcas can live 70-80 years ,but in captivity they only live -40-50 years. why is there shortage of life? because they are doing 4-5 shows a day, instead of just swimming and hunting .Orcas where not went for being trained to do backflips.

what do Orcas eat ?

Orcas mostly eat , fish ,sea lions , seals,polar bears,and birds . The most amazing thing is how  they catch there prey , when they when they spot there prey on an ice berg ,the whole pod moves there tales to make a wave, witch nocks the prey of the ice berg and, into the water . They then grab it under water then through it up in the air so it can breath . they do this to keep the prey alive so that when they go to there young they can teach them how to kill it .

Do whales sleep ?

There perspective of sleeping is not our perspective of sleeping but, our perspective of resting . Orcas lay together as a pod at the surface of the water and breath when they need to . this is how they get there “sleep”.

Orcas, using there knowledge, have discovered something before humans have , Orcas have found that if  you flip a shark upside down that it will , after 10 seconds fall asleep , and that is when the Orca kills the shark ,and eats it .

Baby Orcas are delivered in the water, and are usually delivered tail first ,yet it has been noted that there have been some head first deliveries . Baby Orcas drink there mothers milk for up to 2 years ! The baby orca usually lives with its mothers pod for the rest of its life . This proves that Orcas are mammals .

Orcas are an amazing creature  ,that is also very friendly ,that I would one day, love to meet !


The Most Embarrassing Moment Of My Life

the most embarrassing moment of my life witch is actually quite funny is,” the mouse story” . It goes like this ….

So  I really was embarrassed  that we had mice in our new- old  home and i really wish i could just forget that we had them .One night we went out and bought mouse traps , I just couldn’t believe that we actually where buying them ! A while passed and we only caught  1 mouse . So that could be good and  bad . The reason it could be bad is because I knew that we actually had them, the only reason it was good is because 1 down …and … how many left to go ? 

So one night me and my sister, Alexis, where doing our dinner chores and she said “hey I’ll check the mouse trap and see if we got anything .”And  she did. She told mw that the switch said ,”caught “. I was surprised and said, “No, thats always been like that . There is nothing in there .” But she insisted that there was ! So she ran upstairs and told our mom what happened . I was feeling really confident in myself and said, “you know what I will open it and show you !” 

We both ran down the stairs and I picked up the trap, slid the little cap of the bottom and, low and behold a little mouse nose was looking right at me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I threw the mouse trap across the room and yelled “ahhhhhhhhhhhhh…!!!!!” Alexis was laughing her head off and I was holding both my hands scared and embarrassed . I remembered that pride comes before the fall and I just fell pretty hard . 

So I went and told my mom that Lexi was right and I was … less right .

owww… I fell !!!!!

Birdy’s Favorite Pumpkin Spice Muffins

his is by far my favorite muffin recipe ! And to tell you the truth I only like pumpkin in pies , but this recipe  really brightens up my perspective ! So if you like pumpkin you’ll love this recipe !!!!! you can also use this recipe for dessert !

So I found this recipe on “The Pioneer Woman” . She has a really cool blog ! So click here! she post TONS of recipes !

this is what mine looked like this morning
thees are filled! yum yum :D

So enough talk , here is the recipe :

  • Muffin Ingredients:
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup (heaping) Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • _____
  • Topping
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • _____
  • 1/4 cup Softened Butter
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 pound Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease 12 muffin tins.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Cut in butter with two knives or a pastry blender until it is fully incorporated. In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, evaporated milk, egg, and vanilla. Pour pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Add raisins. Fold gently until mixture is just combined.

Pour into a greased muffin pan—batter hardly ever fills all twelve unless you keep it down to 1/2 full. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar-nutmeg mixture over the top of each unbaked muffin.

Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove and allow to cool. Ice with cream cheese frosting.

To make the frosting, mix all ingredients on high until soft and whipped. Spread onto completely cooled muffins, or place into a large pastry bag with a large star tip and go crazy! Store in the fridge, as icing will soften at room temperature.

I love the frosting ! What I do is push my star point tip into the cupcake and then squirt it out so that it fills the muffin/cupcake  , and you can also decorate the top! I love to decorate , it is actually my favorite part about cooking.

hope you enjoy !
