31 Days of Progress

My First Pinterest Project: No Sew Vest


So...I have like 536 pins on Pinterest. Not all of them are recipes to try or craft projects to tackle, but a number of them are. I actually saw someone wearing this vest in person, heard she found it on Pinterest, and searched for it. It is literally no-sew.  All you need is 1 yard of jersey knit fabric that won’t unravel.  Being a bit larger than this lovely young lady, I made sure I got the Continue Reading

31 Days of Progress Day 27 :: Baked Chimichangas with Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

31 Days of Progress Day 26 :: How to Love Your Adoptive Neighbor

It is full of just awesome, practical, honest advice on how to love your neighbors through Continue Reading

Rain and cooler temps Continue Reading

Another Glitch


Well, just like these geese took their sweet time letting us proceed to World Market a few weeks ago...my computer is not letting me post to my blog through Windows Live Writer. Something's glitchy. I'm working on it. Stubborn enough not to try posting through WordPress just yet (much more time consuming). Thanks for being patient. Shooting for a posting marathon tomorrow. I'll schedule the posts Continue Reading
