This is one of those days when my head is above the water. And I'm temporarily on an island for some needed respite. Blog island.
I cannot think of any other way to demonstrate this. Oh ha-ha.
But it's not without fun I must say, so I really can't complain.
The good news is, I am able to "create". Not as much as I would love to, but there's art strewn around the house, yeah, here and there, pretty much.
And I've been cooking a lot too. You know I'm fine when I'm not opening a can of spam and disguising it as something special like a musubi, for instance. I'll show you pics next time. I've been taking a lot of it too. Ahh this trend on Facebook. I have a little nook there, an album called "My Little Cucina". It's brand new but I intend to document every crazy thing I do in the kitchen -- mostly being creative when life throws me leftovers. (I get more satisfaction from breathing a fresh new "second" life to leftovers, than in concocting the original dish, most of the time. Are you that way too?)
And I'm ranting.
In a nutshell, I've gone to picnics, birthday parties (what else is new?), target ranges. And oh, I've been to two gun shows this past month and I'm so happy because I always come home with vintage jewelry finds (yes, they sell 'em at gun shows...it's a marketing strategy for the wifeys). My latest find is a cabochon from the 1800s which I started wearing proudly whenever there was a chance to dress up.
Oh, we crashed into a car show after coming out of one gun show and there we also saw hubby's co-worker who's a Ford enthusiast (or a collector?). I really adore his two buttercup-colored Fords (Galaxy is it?). From what I heard, it's set to go in Phoenix auto repair for some water pump and timing belt issues. Nothing that cannot be fixed! Anyhoo, we stayed for a while and took pictures-- of me basically with the favorites (electric blue ford escort woohoo!)...
I'm carried away.
That has been my life so far.
I'm passing by the store tonight to pick up some puff pastry (so I can turn our dinner leftovers last night into something snackable tomorrow). Hubby likes any meaty savory dish wrapped around any dough.
I'm thinking project BOUREKAS for tonight. (In Israel, bourekas are made from puff pastry filled with various fillings)
I'll show you what they are tomorrow.
