Lazy Sunday

 I've been sick so today I just hung at home ... cooked, cleaned and watched tv.  

God the BEST Christmas gift this year (among other great gifts) but my mother found some recipes hand written by my grandmother and had them laminated.  
When I opened them I balled and balled and balled.
I have them sitting right behind my plates so I see them daily.
Put one in a frame to see how it looks.  
Tad crooked but I like it!

Still practicing with my camera and thought I would take pics of what I cooked.

I have an awful sweet tooth so I made peanut butter, chocolate chip & banana stuffed croissants...
the PB is natural & it has bananas....
it's healthy...ish.
ok fine.

The soup I made is full of healthy yumminess!

 kale (SUPER FOOD!)
chicken sausage
organic veggie broth

No pics of the soup.  

I think I'm mad at it. 

See...I opened the Thyme and thought it was a shaker.  
Dumped half the Thyme into the soup.  
Got most of it out.  
We will see how it tastes tomorrow.....

it is too early for me to be dreaming?

So I typically start dreaming of the beach in Feb or March.
When the warm weather is much closer to me.
Its mid-Jan and all I want is the humidity
salty air
sandy toes
warm water
ah, man.

why have i lived in Denver for three years (okay okay two years, forty nine weeks) and never been to the First Friday Art Walk?!
I'm obsessed.
Hope one day my photos will be shown there.
LOVED looking at the art being created.
STILL figuring out how to use the new camera.
cheers to your weekend!

so ive been practicing and playing and realizing there is a
lot of practice to do w this new gadget.
luckily i have some friends who will let me practice on them.

took some pics of my friend and her out of town guests 
(super fun and awesome friends......
even if i believed that one of them sheered sheep for a living.....!)

its been warm here in boomtown 
so this evening was a nice night for a walk w my friend Liz. 
we walked
we talked
& i shot some night time photos
....and look what we saw!  

a room full of balloons!!

& then we stumbled upon this adorable mini snowman! 
i thought he was fake.  he was so small and just sitting there.
no larger than my hand.
love him.
