Beets Salad

Food • Beets Salad

Simply delicious and easy to make. I started by boiling the beets until tender, mixed balsamic vinegar, chopped onions, salt and Black pepper then added the chunks of beets and mixed all together. When serving, I would recommend to serve carefully using another plate as beets can be messy and can take away the beauty of the plate.

Crochet Time • Yarn Man

Crochet Time • Yarn Man

It is funny to me, how when I am trying to accomplish certain things, patterns, designs, etc..I will be the one over analyzing every angle of it. The main reason I do this is because I want to make sure that whatever project I am working on does not look like something else (sometimes I fail) and although no one else can tell, I always have in the back of my head the thought: Oh, no! It looks like....=\. Anyway, when digging in my box of crochet materials, I found these marvelous yarn rolls perfectly shaped to be one on top of the other and don't even get me started on the colors (Black being my favorite) and while many know a man called 'Snow Man' well tell him that the 'Yarn Man' has arrived.

Hand Stitching Time • It is a Bunny

Hand Stitching Time • It is a Bunny

I know bunnies can be a bit dirty but I can not deny how cute they are, I wish I can have 2 real bunnies as pets jumping on my bed all they time. 

P.S. this post was not made for the bunny and the eggs season. I just happened to like bunnies and I hand stitched one randomly.

Crochet Time • Mixed Up

Crochet Time • Mixed Up

This mixed color yarn, I think is awesome, I love the contrast of these colors specially the Brown against the dark Orange. I ended up making another coaster for my White desk and it's just the right amount of color for my very neutral decor.

Scrapbook Time • The Moon Shines Through the Tree

Here is the final project from last week materials shown here. I took this pic with my Galaxy phone one night on my way home, I had to stop and take this pic, the moon was perfectly centered in the empty space of the tree. Life is better by the minute specially when you make time to admire Jehovah's creation. Cute butterfly too, I love it!

Trying Organic

Food • Trying Organic

I am very excited about this! As much I love my fruits and vegetables, why not eat them organic? I used to be a vegetarian for a long time and I enjoyed it. I decided to stop because I am really not that discipline and I had a very strict schedule to follow for the food and the time I was eating, and the supplements were out of my budget at the time. I do have to say that after those years of being a vegetarian my love for fruits and vegetables increased immensely. Although organic is more expensive it only makes sense for me to give it a try because of the amount of fruits and vegetables I eat on a daily bases. So there it is, I am trying organic and I hope to stick to it for a long time.
