I need to say thank you and Happy Birthday to Katie!! Her actual age is still a secret, but I suppose that's okay in proper company;) She had a give-away in honor of her own birthday, and I was the lucky winner!! How cool is that??
I have also been dealing with a bout of self-imposed depression. I don't know if it's post-vacation blues, the change of the seasons, the pain, or missing the kids. Maybe a mix of all of the above. But, I've pulled my boot straps up, and gotten back to it despite myself....
My mom gave me this pattern to put together. I was auditioning backgrounds here...I went with the yellow for the center and am thinking of piecing a border to go around the whole thing with a couple of the other choices. It's far different from the original color scheme, but that's okay;) I will probably give this to her along with the apron I made last week along with a few other goodies...it's almost her birthday;)
In the kitchen....
...our local grocery market had some steaming hot jalapenos that were just begging to be made into salsa. Those babies were so hot I am still recovering from the oils on my hands...and everywhere else I touched!! I got that whole batch together for about $25, not including the jars and such.
Anyway, I'm headed out for my now daily constitutional.....I've decided to get out and get my rear in shape. It feels good to get outside, even if I have to use some bengay when I get done;)
