Earth's Crust

This Project Life layout showed up in my newsfeed from a few years ago. I love how I can use many mini photos on a layout to tell the story.

Scrapbooking.... that is what it is all about. Telling a story.

Our son was in middle school at the time. He had to do a project on the Earth's crust. It was fun constructing it with him. Trying to figure out what food items could make the different layers of the Earth and mixing up the food colors to be realistic for different sections of the Earth's crust.

Pulled Pork

Our dinner yesterday.

The pulled pork is from my husband who smoked a pork butt a few weeks ago. We froze it into dinner portioned vacuum pack bags. It is nice to grab it from the freezer already ready.

The rolls are made by our son who is in Culinary Arts School. Unbelievably good hamburger rolls. Nothing beats fresh made artisan breads and rolls.

We are a little spoiled with our son's culinary dishes and artisan breads he made the last two years. He graduates this May.

Got coffee?

Coffee, anyone?

Okay. Yes. I {did} make a scrapbook page about coffee. 

I like to take photos of my morning cups of coffee. Albeit that it may be decaffeinated. I had to switch to decaf about 4 years ago due to my severe migraines. Yes, I miss caffeinated coffee but I like not having the severity of migraines that it causes me. I still have them but nothing like they were four years ago.

Simple Notebooks


I think I have a notebook addiction.

I have all of BH's notebooks except for the first LOVE notebooks. They sold out before I could buy any.

I have one of the simple notebooks in my purse that is not included in this photo. what to write in them? Hmmmmm.

Full of flavor.

My husband makes awesome pulled pork.

A Crafting "Ice Cream" Truck

I saw this in my newsfeed from last year on Facebook.

I think they need to do a crafter's truck.



You get the drift.

Those little things we run out of at home when we need them in a pinch.

Simple is good

Dinner last night at home.

Simple is good. 

No sauce. 

No gravy. 

Just pasta tossed in butter. 

Sautéed broccoli.

Enjoying the sunshine

Our kitties are taking advantage of having the windows open this past weekend..... Yes! In winter! A week ago we had a winter storm dump 6 inches of snow. The counties adjacent to us got 12 inches! Thank goodness there was no ice. We usually get ice and sleet first THEN snow.

It was a nice powdery mix. It was great for making snowballs and snowmen.

Living in NC, we can wear flip-flops and shorts and heavy coat and gloves all in the same week.

Have a great day!
