Here it is....

My first blog post!  Let me wipe away a tear....

My intentions for this blog are to offer random musings about my life, the world in general, school, and whatever comes to mind.  It will be chock full of "how-to's" for cooking, sewing, crafts, and more.

Right now there is a standard blogspot template background.  That will change.  All my computers are fried, but in another week or so will quit borrowing my kid's computer, and have my own - with all kinds of cool graphic design programs.

There will be pictures - if not in a tutorial, then random stuff like, oh - this.

Not sure if they're "oooh!" or "ewww" but they are definitely Uggs!

A little bit about me - I'm a 51-year-old single mom whose chick is about to leave the nest!  I haven't lived by myself in years, so this will be a lot of fun.  I'm about to go back to school to finish my degree, studying web applications and development.  My home is in Fort Worth, TX but my dream is to end up in Colorado, someday soon.  My politics are conservative, my beliefs are Christian.  I welcome everyone at my site, as I believe we are all loved by our Creator.  Some things we as humans do, well not so much.  But that's a whole 'nuther post!

I do love to cook - and unfortunately, love to eat!  Luckily, kiddo's friends are a good source of guinea pigs.  Nothing like kids away from home to volunteer as taste-testers!

Ah, my dogs.  They're like my kids, and have the mentality of 3-year-olds.  Texi is on the left, she's a purebred tweener weiner, and Schatzie is on the right, she's half blue heeler and half dachshund.  Hmm, does that make her a blue weiner? 

Schatzie is a very good protector, and guards what she loves!

Photo quality isn't so great, they're phone pictures.  Better ones for the future, I promise!

It's the end of a grueling work week, so as Porky Pig would say, "th-th-th-that's all, folks!"
