Good to be Back!

Well, it sure has been some time since I have blogged. Lately I've been busy just looking at Pinterest. It is sooooo addicting. I'm now starting to get ready for fall. I'm taking out all of my Halloween decorations and deciding where everything needs to be. I also want to start my fall garden. My chickens have dwindled down to 7 hens, hopefully I will get some more but we will need a bigger chicken coop. I tried a new recipe which  my whole family has requested I bake again. Here it is:

PECAN PIE MUFFINS- makes 12 muffins

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper liners in muffin tin and spray with canola oil.
In large bowl combine pecans, brown sugar and flour. Mix and make a well.
In separate bowl beat the eggs until foamy. Add melted butter and stir to combine well. Pour the egg mixture into well of flour mixture. Stir until moistened.  Spoon batter into the cup liners. Bake until toothpick comes out clean.  About 20 min.

It has been some time since I last posted. Blogger has changed and my computer is acting strange. The weather here has been great and I can't wait to start my flower gardens.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I did not raise her that way...I just don't know what happened. I did not raise her to become a cannibal... and she is starting to set a bad influence on Ethyl. Now Lucy has been conspiring with Ethyl to join her evil ways. I just don't know what to do. I have been listening for her cackle every morning and I rush out to try to save those eggs. Some days I'm lucky and some days she beats me in recovering those precious eggs and she just flips her little beak up in the air as to say ... eggs, what eggs, there are no eggs in this nest today. I had been wondering for a while why I was not finding Lucy and Ethyl's eggs until one day I caught her (Lucy) in the act...pecking away at the eggs. Right now she doesn't know how lucky she is in getting away with this act. If DH finds out I'm for sure she will become next Sunday's dinner. Yep.....she just doesn't know how lucky she is.

If you are in the area of Eagle Lake, Texas this Saturday Dec. 18th...come by and enjoy a fantastic Christmas Holiday Event. There will be a Christmas Mall & Live Music during the day and a Parade of Lights in the evening. There will be a Street Dance after the conclusion of the Parade until Midnight.

I will have a craft booth in their Christmas Mall, stop by and say "Hello".

Happy Holidays!

I just returned from San Antonio, I was there to help cheer my little sister Michelle and her team "RBR" in their first 1/2 Marathon Run. It was all soooo exciting to see so many runners, 30,000 + runners.

Congrats to Michelle and her teammates "RBR"!!!

Great run....she finished at 2:59:54.

After all the walking my Aunt Dorothy and I did (which was no where near the 13.1 miles my sister ran... LOL), it felt as if we had run the marathon. We were sooo tired that as soon as we got home we fell asleep.

I'm linking up at Val's "SPOOKIFY ME SATURDAYS" for a howling of a ghoul time! Click to join the party.

I showed this tutorial last year. Check my "Labels" under Tootsie Roll Spider or my October 19, 2009 post on my "Tutorials" on how to make this fun spider craft.

Hope you have fun making these spiders.

I just love purses, especially if you can eat them.... (Now don't pay attention to the background). My sister Michelle has been taking cake decorating classes, so we decided to have a bake-off and decorate these cakes.

Have a wonderful day!
