Giveaway: The Recipe Club

Giveaway: The Recipe Club

Whilst thumbing through my emails I read a post from one of my fav foodie bloggers Pink of Perfection, and came across this give away. It brought back memories of myself and my parents cooking at home way back when I was attending college. Read it and I'm sure you'll be following her!

So, I guess its been a while since I have blogged. Amongst the many projects I have been working on, my writing has been lacking. I am almost finished pinning the fabric to the ottoman and chair I'm attempting to make a slipcover for. This has been an ultimate challenge especially since it's hard to keep the kiddos from jumping up and down on it. The pins don't seem to deter them:-

Having to go to Wally World yesterday was an interesting trip. I held a couple of conversations with ladies whom I didn't know, and some rather disturbing information was sent my way. Mmm... get ready for this: So, apparantely in the domestic section of the store there are baskets made of animal hair. That's right, not rawhide or anything like that, but animal hair. The kind woman at the fabric counter forlaid that to me. I'll have to remind myself to look the next time I'm there. I told her I have heard of people saving cat hair and felting it, but how on earth does one make a basket out of it??

Another one of those things which makes you go hmmm....

Glass tower DIY

Here's something I've been thinking about for a while now. It's really easy to do, but takes patience. I will post instructions when the finished product is revealed!

GET 'ER Done Tuesday

I thought since I got this low flow shower head free from our

local water authority, I'd attempt to install it myself.


since I got this lovely set of tools from Santa, I'd even do

it with my own stuff, Yea for me!!

Now, if I can figure out how all these work!!!
Off to find something else to tool with. I soon will see what the air compressor and nail gun will do:)

So I am finally gearing up to start blogging again. I had a blog a few years ago, but lost it the confines of google. Here's my attempt at a new beginning. New year= new beginnings, right?

Today lends itself for healthy eating. My kids have taken this approach today as well. We should all feel great for the dreaded 1st day back to school tomorrow. 6:30 AM ~oh boy how early!
