Moving Still trying to organize my downsized sewing life. I have moved furniture and machines to one room, back to another and am considering a different spot. It just isn’t working for me yet. Should I have it in my dining area (viewable from the entry AND livingroom) or in my bedroom… How romantic! If […]

Heh. Brazilian Cheese Balls that is. Pão de Queijo. My yummy afternoon snack that I do not need. They are gluten free though so that should count for something! They are made with tapioca flour.

They are having […]

I was a good girl this morning and ate a good breakfast…and yes Pam I also had coffee…all day even! Ignore the half and half in the background. Wasn’t mine. Right. Well, what is the purpose of fat free half and half? Doesn’t that make it 1/4 and 1/4? or tasteless spew??!! I mixed the […]
