Homemade Ice Cream

Today is National Ice Cream Day!  Now this is a holiday I can get into!  To celebrate, for dinner I made homemade ice cream.  Nothing too fancy, just the basic vanilla recipe from Cuisinart.

I would have shared pictures of it all heaped up in a bowl with caramel and chocolate sauce, but . . . it didn’t last.  Happy Ice Cream Day!

Best Laid Plans

Do you ever realize that the things that you agonize over and schedule down to the minute  never turn out the way they are suppose to?  But the things that just happen come together without a hitch?  Or maybe it’s just me.  A few weeks back I got everything ready to share some the projects that I have been working on.  I got it all planned out and then my computer wonked out me.  It’s amazing how weird it felt being without my computer for over a week.  But (hopefully) without further adieu here are some of the things that I have been wanting to share :

Happy {Belated} Birthday

Halloween Ornament Swap

I can’t believe that it is almost Christmas time already!  Wow have I lost time!  Remember how as a kid, it seemed time was slow and you couldn’t wait for it to hurry up?  Winter brakes seemed sooooo long?  What ever happened to that?  Now, the older I get it’s like time is gone in a wink.  It feels like Halloween was just a couple of weeks a go.  Ohie!
You know what I blame?  One word.  Pinterest.  Well, actually it’s more than that (like a computer that finked out on me), but lets face it, that’s where I’m putting all the blame.  What little time I’ve got to spend on the computer, I put into searching the Pinterest boards.  I’ve missed my birthday post, Halloween, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving!  Noooo, say it isn’t true!  So I’m considering this my Pin-ervention.  Cause I need one apparently!                                               
But the good thing about searching Pinterest in that I have been inspired to make a ton of stuff.  And organize!  Woot!

Want a teaser? (or a spoiler maybe)

Is that enough?
