In today's hustle and bustle world convenience seems to be the preferred method of living; but as we are finding out, convenient isn't always good for the body or the soul. Let's do more things the way grandma experienced them: from scratch, from our own soil, with love and pride...but let's not forget to have fun, make fun of ourselves, and the booze. Always remember the booze (if you are of age, of course).
Like most other women I've been talking to lately, I have been OBSESSED with stupid Pinterest! I say "stupid" because it consumes me, to the point where my brain doesn't create any new recipes, I just cheat and steal other people's ideas...haha! I've been having great success with most recipes I've tried so far, which is why I find it hard to try and come up with recipes on my own. I've posted a few of my favorites below if you're interested. Oh, and feel free to check out my pins first hand if you want to see how obsessed and insane I actually am: www.pinterest.com/candiekisses126
Even though I've been putting the blogging on the back burner, I am still practicing my "old lady at heart" skills. I started sewing a little more. Now, I can wind bobbins, and thread my machine like a pro! Last weekend I turned this big ugly shirt into a form fitting dolman style shirt, thanks to an amazing seamstress with a YouTube channel.
NASCAR in Vegas is coming up soon, which means lots of time on the campground...which means time to learn how to knit! I'm taking some knitting needles and plenty of yarn. Hopefully this goes well, unlike my first attempts at crochet, haha!
