I had fajitas the other night. Normally, I make em’ with chicken- but for some reason I used a lean pork chop instead. You know, the other white meat? I was also plum out of any sort of ready made seasoning. But… no worries because I have the-best-ever-homemade fajita seasoning.

If you read my other site you already know how I made these:

I’ve been having fun with scrapbook paper lately… you can do uh-mazing stuff with it. Mt hubby came home yesterday, and I showed him this:

See that? Those are my beaded necklaces & bohemian bags…

I got em organized. The necklace holder? Foam board and scrapbook paper! I took a step by step tutorial- but my computer ate the pictures off my camera and I can’t find them. Grrr.  It’s pretty straightforward, tough.

I made macarons – seriously- if you have never had one… they are one of the best things ever.  I have several recipes and tutorials here. They can be tricky, but well worth the challenge.

How often do you get to see a sign like this? It was at Lion Country Safari. I want to put one of those on my gate. Tee-hee.

Now, don’t think things are always perfect. I just chose to focus on the good stuff.

Sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that can bring random comfort in times of despair. Like when hubby’s truck breaks down, the roof leaks, and I keep finding what I think are termites in my house. Those are the NOT SO awesome things. But… it’s going to be okay…..

I just know it.
