This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Cooking today.....................

Today we had chicken breasts. I braised 4 small ones in butter. Added a can of stewed tomatoes in little chunks. Then added some Kale. I keep a bag in the freezer to add to dishes, it freezes well. The herbs and spices, salt, cumin, garlic salt and onion salt. I let that simmer until the chicken was done. Now normally I would add cheese to melt on top but I didnt have any. It was just as good without.

I added some mushrooms. Then I made some of the Red Lobster bisquits. They are really good.

It was certainly good.

During the afternoon I made cookies. I had a box of peanut butter cookie dough with chocolate kisses. I bought it at Christmas and never did it.
Tristen helped me.

His job was to unwrap the kisses and make sure they were still good (eye roll here).......he did about 1/2 of them. It's a big job.

Tristen was my taster. Said they passed muster. Then Gerry came in and half the first batch was gone. There were plenty more so I froze 1/2 and the rest will be to eat this week for snacks.
