Been enjoying being outdoors and walking, hiking lately. I walk my dog everyday, usually first thing in the morning for about 30 minutes, sometimes in the evening but not often. If I'm with my dog, I always feel safe, alone thats another story. It always fun when you're walking with someone or hiking with a group of friends. Lately, I have hiked a couple of times at Peter's Canyon in Orange County and really loving it. It's about a four mile hike. Uphill climb initially and then downhill on the way back. It always feels good when done, good for the body. Been wanting to bring my dog, but I think it might be too hard on her hips. Buttons will be going on 10 years old. She's in good shape still, but I can see she's getting tired more often. Have a great weekend blogland :O)
It seems as I get older, I'm enjoying cooking more, probably because I have much more time on my hands. Thought I would try to make some chicken enchiladas the other night. That's a pic of what they looked like before going into the oven. Happy Cooking!
Well, I'm going to be doing some traveling the first week of August. My middle son, Brian gave me a wonderful Mothers Day present. A trip to go see him in Madison, Wisconsin and to the big city of Chicago. I'm so excited to go . . it's been a while for me since I've done any traveling and really looking forward to this trip. Cassandra my daughter, of course will be joining me. So it time to get ready and do some shopping.
I thought I would create some little pretties for my doll. I originally had a bird's nest attached with some aqua blue seam binding ribbon, but I really didn't like the way it turned out. So I decided on a necklace brooch instead. Some oatmeal colored linen, pale pink rick rack trim and a few pieces of felt to create a little flower, added some straight stitches and french knots too. Here some pics of it . . it's certainly not perfect, but thats what I love about it.
