Smoke Signals...Frontiersman Jerky

I am shamelessly plugging my husbands business today.


He is a hunting and fishing enthusiast and for years has made his own jerky and smoked his own fish and he's the kind of guy that likes to share.  So for years he's made jerky, shared it and for years people have been telling him he should sell his jerky.

heavenly Rice pudding

I usually don't blog on Sunday,  but my husband created Heaven today for breakfast so I thought it was fitting. He said and I quote "That recipe just popped into my head like a magnet." 
(What the what?)
Anyway...  This is dairy free and gluten free, but certainly not sugar free unless you wanted to use honey or something else instead.  It was totally an experiment, and you all know how some of my experiments have turned out now don't ya.  Good thing this was my hubby's experiment and really, I wanted nothing to do with it.  I was going to cook oatmeal.   Ha, jokes on me.  This was a hit!  Everybody loved it....even the second bowl.
Here's the recipe:

you are my sunshine, my only sunshine...stained glass sun catchers

My hubby and I share a love of stained glass so I would say he did pretty darn good job of Mother's day gift giving this year.
I can't wait to hang these so they catch the sun. 
I'm still not sure exactly how or where to hang them, but it's gonna be epic! :)
Leeeeeet the sun shine...
Leeeeeet the sun shine in...
It's like she's saying, Hello Darlin'.  I say she because of those lips! :)

Thanks hubby o' mine. L.O.Y.B.

i'm famous...

I always wanted to be popular.  I sorta always wanted to be famous.  Ironic since I hate to be in the spotlight.
I'm not famous or really even popular by the worlds standards, but I'm kinda a big deal at home... to my kids anyway.   It warms the cockles of my heart when my kids clamor for my attention.  When they burst through the door after they get home from school and call out "Momma where are you?!"  When they fight to sit by me at scripture time. When my littlest needs "snuggle time". I'm popular at home and that's all that matters...
It's like I have groupies. :)
This morning my littlest came sleepily into my room and exclaimed how excited she was that tomorrow is mother's day.
Oh,  my littlest groupie,  every day is mother's day. 

"snuggle time"

Photo editor

I have a good friend who is a photographer.  A real photographer.  He hates photo shop and I'm guessing all the other versions of it,  but I'm here to tell you that for me,  I love it!
I am an amateur (at best) click-it-from-my-phone kind of photographer.  I have family members who are really good photographers so it should be in my genes right?  Yeah,  not so much.  So until I get good at it,  (or at least better) I will use my photo editor and I'll tell you why.  When I see something beautiful and have to take a picture of it (with my phone) it doesn't usually turn out as vibrant as how I see it,  so I spruce it up a bit...
How my phone sees it...

How I see it...
