Hello, my sweet bloggie friends! How the heck are you, this fine Saturday afternoon? It is ca-ca-ca-COLD here and there is more snow on it's way to us tonight into tomorrow so I'm snug as a bug, tucked in front of the cozy fire with the laptop on my lap this afternoon while my hubs is away, wearing his referee uniform and blowing his whistle at people.
I'm supposed to be ready to go when he gets home because we're heading out to dinner with some of my family to celebrate my Mom's birthday. Looking forward to it....I'm sure it will be a fun evening. The laughter usually abounds when we get together.
In the meantime, I thought I'd pop in and share my cards that were published in the December issue of CARDS Magazine. The green card from the above collection, is the one that was published but these cards just beg to be seen together as a group, don't you think? :) SO, you get to see them all together again.
This one was a fun little Papertrey number from awhile back featuring Year of Flowers: Roses.
And this little ditty showcases a pretty Hero Arts bird. Don't you just love the woodgrain impression plate pattern on the green behind the bird? That impression plate is still one of my all time favorites!
Well, I guess that's about all from me today. Do you follow me on Twitter? Did you see my tweets today about my quest to conquer making split pea soup? And how I'm excited to make a big pot of beans this week (for the first time!) with the bag of dry navy beans I got at the store? I'll have to let you know how it goes. It's also been discovered that I don't think we've ever actually used our crock pot (!), so perhaps I'll just make that big ole pot of beans in the crock pot. We'll see. If you have favorite recipes for beans or even just crock pot recipes, feel free to share them with us all here in the comments section! You know how I love soup, so I'm excited to make some beans.....they're kind of comfort food, aren't they?
One time, when I was little and home from school for a snow day, my mom made a pot of navy beans for lunch. I LOVED them......first of all because they tasted so good. But I also loved them because I can remember sitting on the floor with my mom, on our avocado green carpet with the couch at our backs and our bowls of beans in front of us on our long coffee table. I love that memory. I'll have to ask Mom at dinner tonight, why she only made those awesome navy beans once!
Happy Saturday, Sweets!
