First of all, this week I got a blogger award. Now I know these things float around all over the blogosphere, but whenever I get one, I still get the warm fuzzies. Sharing this one, however, requires a confession of sorts.
I have another blog.
But, it's NOTHING to me! I don't even refer to it as a blog. It's just something that happened over the summer when I needed some.. some.. RELEASE.
I had all these paintings and drawings laying around, and I wanted to have my own place to organize and categorize them, so I made this page for them. That's all it was, I SWEAR. But then some other artsy people started to visit, and so I started to visit their artsy places, and the few of us could just geek out on each others' techniques and ... well... there you go. One of my "others" gave me this Candle Lighter Award this week.
This award belongs to those who believe, who always Survive the day and those who never stop Dreaming, for those who cannot quit, for those who keep trying and if you’re in this catergory, you are Entitiled to this Award.
Anyway, I got it from my artsy friend, Cha, and I rather liked the sentiment behind it because sometimes, we can be our own worst critics. I know I can, anyway.
And speaking of other blogs, I wanted to share this great recipe I tried this week for pork ribs and saurkraut. I got it from a food blog and I didn't save the link because I was pretty sure I could make it again from memory (I'm all about the simple). I was looking for it this morning to link here. There are a crap load of food blogs, let me just say! If I ever find that recipe again, I'll give the link.
But anyway, the Real Food Project of 2012 continues. My testers declared this recipe a keeper and I will make it again - from memory.
In movie news, I made it through Fast Five, the fifth
Yesterday, Chaco had some birthday money burning a hole in his pocket, so the five of us took a trip up to Denver for some big city slicking. It was a nice little trip - weather-wise, traffic-wise, all-around-wise. Well, except for getting pulled over by the Sherrif's department on the drive home, but that's for later... Good thing for paint-a-horse rehab, and now I'm better for it.
