What to do when you should be doing your homework? Peter is working on his masters, but every once in awhile the weather is JUST TOO GOOD to pass up
doing something.... anything outside, even for a minute or two.
So I went on a run and tried to return to our house from the backside, 
meaning I had to fight off large over grown... 
well its not grass, its tumble weeds before they become tumble weeds... 
ANYway, when I came home Peter had to open the back door for me
and I had found a golf ball on my adventure. 

this was a practice shot... that is why the ball is still on the ground ;)
 When he started back to his homework, I took a shower and painted this:
Its for the hilarious lady at church who counts the money.
She was sick so I had to help out and I am not near as accurate as her. :)

Building Dreams

Peter is super consumed with building his dream house. Its one of those things that he would LOVE to do in his life time. So in honor of my hubby here are some pictures of buildings made from mini-buildings from our favorite game Settlers of Catan.

These are some of the builders. My brother in law and Grant

Sorry for the spaz like posting... I am tired.

One Day

One day this week, I went outside. 

It was cold. It was windy. As you can tell with my hair.

But it was nice to just be outside ;) cheers for warm weather coming soon!!
 HOWEVER, until then... I will continue to do inside things... INSIDE... like this

More Baking and Napping

 Remember my last post?

YAY! I am get so happy when I say I am going to do something and then do it! ;)  I did make the doughnut holes from the frugal girl! However they definitely taste like muffins and look like muffins so mine didn't turn out how I imagined... ahem like doughnut holes, but they were all eaten, save one for Peter's lunch, so they must of had some taste appeal. :)

Other than that its been pretty slow around my head quarters. I am waiting for my dear friend Britt to come! wooooOOOOT! Then maybe you'll start to see more pictures of someone other than TUX... even though he is one amazing cat.  Which is why I wanted so badly to show you our napping pictures. He always picks the best spots on the couch. :)
Sleep well dear friends.

Baking and Making

I think because I have the approval to eat most foods again (I was feeling horrible earlier) I have gone a bit baking batty.

For a normal baker, you will think I am just losing my marbles, because I only baked two things in the last two days, but as I posted yesterday its hard to do things sometimes. I find that after I have been sick and just laying around I WANT to do more things, but my energy level hasn't caught up with my wanting do level... if that makes sense. So baking seems like a nice first step.

First: Engagement Cookies!
If you have never had them, well you are in for a real yum yum amazing experience! Seriously!

You can even freeze the dough!
Just comment if you want the recipe!

Second: Flour Tortillas - these did NOT work out like tortillas should, I have made authentic corn tortillas with the sweetest lady in my church and these look much different. In fact the ones I made are more like pita bread, but guess what? - I like pita bread so I am still happy ;) We put Caesar salad inside and ate it like a wrap.
see? uber thick! and i don't think I could flatten them more.
But I still love them! - recipe

What's up next? I have no idea? Maybe these doughnut/muffin holes the Frugal Girl made?
also recipe

Anyhoo this whole post I keep spelling recipe, RECIPIE, 
which I think is a much better spelling since my version has the word "pie" in it.

Alas, the English Language puzzles me again.

Going Crazy... as usually.

Have you seen it?
Over at the Perfect Pear, Lauren, has posted a picture of me!
Wowzas! Not a very flattering pic (my bad!), but the picture is suppose to be about the adorable poppy ring she sent me! Lauren is so sweet, so if you have a chance, hang out at her blog. Its so inspirational it makes me want to get up and do things. Seriously! Who doesn't need a little inspiration to do something other than watch the tube? Way to go Lauren!!

More craziness includes- I can't sleep, but Peter's asleep and Tux finally is laying on my lap. He has been one bouncy cat this evening! He has been into his food, jumping on the tv, jumping on my back, playing with the door stoppers, you know the ones that make a funny sound.

Sometimes I think Tux is a toddler, wrapped up in a lot of fur... it could happen... right?

Well, Here is a good night to all!
