Saturday and Sunday Somethings {do,read,watch,eat}



DO:  PicMonkey FREE photo editor 
Have you been missing Piknik?  Maybe you have never spent any time editing your own photos on-line.  I had to switch from Picasa to iPhoto and have been so frustrated by that program.  Thankfully I was introduced to Picmonkey.  It is SO EASY to use.  And they just added a new collage feature which I used this morning to make my new header.  It has very few written instructions so don't be afraid to play around and see what your mouse can do.

READ:  Simple As That blog
My boys have only three half days left of school next week so I am in full-on summer planning mode.  Pinterest is a great help in finding printables for summer bucket lists and crafts for the kids.  That's how I came across this gorgeous blog. I think I'm in love! Be sure to check out her freebies for free downloads.

WATCH:  Lose Your "Buts" 
That's the title I gave to this awesome talk given by Joyce Meyer.  I like to listen to her while I fold laundry or do dishes.  It was one of those funny talks that was so convicting that a few minutes into it I realized that I was making a mental list of all the people I knew who "needed" to hear this when - WHAMO - she started talking about all the things I NEEDED to hear!  Ha ha.  Isn't that the way it goes?  I just loved every moment of her on-point examples. 

We made this last week and it was so delicious it will surely be a regular at our dinner table.  I also liked the step-by-step breakdown in the recipe instructions.  I may have to adopt that style when writing my own recipes.


Enjoy the holiday weekend and please thank a member of the military when you get the chance.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for annapurnaliving.com : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us. My wish is to inspire others to create beautiful, honest and satisfying lives. My Other Ex: Women's True Stories of Leaving and Losing Friends   @A Design So Vast Unfortunately, over the past few
