January 23-29 (Photo 365)

February 19th, 2012

I decided that since I needed to be on my computer for a moment today anyway-that I would try to add a few photos to work towards catching up on my Photo 365 challege.   I’ve got the pictures just waiting to be resized and stamped with the date- but since I’m fighting the vertigo- I can’t really spend a lot of time at the desktop, so I’ll try to upload them without all the pomp and circumstance.  At least they’ll be done- albeit not as nicely as I’d like.

With all the cold weather we had been having- We spent a lot of time indoors and enjoying the sunshine as it shone through the windows.  This was one of such days- and JJ sitting in a half-dreamy state enjoying the moment.

He is such a happy little guy, and I am a firm believer that there is a lot we could learn from both dogs and cats about living in the moment and not holding on to the things we can’t do anything about.

My first bouquet of tulips this year.    I actually had two bouquets of the same color and had them in two different vases.   I loved the way the afternoon sun caught these and it seemed to give this dreamy effect.      I did run it through the Camera + app on my iPhone though and I was pleased with the overall look.

Everyone who knows me knows about my love affair with great coffee mugs.   I have them from all over the world,  and I tend to choose them each day based on my mood at the time.

With it being Mardi Gras time-  This is my ‘go to’ mug until Tuesday- the last official day of carnival season for 2012.

Until then- you will find me sipping my coffee from the cup- and thinking of all the fun and adventure going on in the Big Easy and along the Gulf Coast.   “Let the Good Times Roll!”

I rarely wear socks or shoes when I’m at home- but with all the really cold weather we’d been having- even my poor feet couldn’t seem to get and stay warm, so I pulled out a pair of fuzzy, yet very comfy socks an wore them most of the day and into the night.    I did end up having to shed them later that evening when I was watching television as it was a little too warm.

My little guy tends to come to the kitchen anytime I’m busy making something.  He’s always hoping I’ll drop a piece of bell pepper or anything else that he can put in his mouth and run away with.

I couldn’t help but grab a quick shot of him.  I don’t even remember what I was making, but I do know that he was sitting there for quite some time – waiting with patience, and hope.

Needless to say-   He didn’t get anything on this particular day.   Poor guy.  You can see how underfed he is.

This soup is one that I made for the first time but won’t be the last.  It’s called Ribboita and is technically an Italian bread soup.   I made it without adding the bread and served it on the side.   It was wonderful.

I wasn’t sure if Marcel would like it-  after all it had beans and kale-   both of which he likes made particular ways but doesn’t steer from those methods.      He loved it- and said I should definitely make it again.   I will!!!  It was such a hearthy and HEALTHY soup- that I can see it becoming a regular winter meal in our household.

This is the beginning of something beautiful.   A batch of chocolate cookies that I made to play around with royal icing and see how well I could do using it.   I loved the flavor of these cookies and they were a huge successs amongst those who ate them.

The decorated version were even better.
