             from Missie’s Magical creations

The sun is out today and according to my computer, it is 54 degrees here at 2:00pm…Blue skies and white clouds…a beautiful day.

I have not did much of anything so far today. I have cleaned the house, ate something and walked the pups, but nothing else. I still have my PJ’s on, as a matter of fact..yes I walked the pups in my PJ’s…( my PJ’s are a t-shirt and sweat pants!)

               Wyatt & Hallie (my Chihuahua)

                Both standing at my coffee table

Soon I will have to get up from here and go pay my water/gas/sewage bill at City Hall, then go to the post office to mail more bills and finally; on the grocery store! I am putting it off…as you can see; and that was one of my ‘New Year Hopefuls’ ( I try not to call them resolutions, ‘cause then I always fail to keep them)

I told myself this year that I would try to keep things organized and try not to procrastinate so muchWell now, we see how that is going don’t we? lol

        Danny’s mama and Wyatt- 3 days old

I love finding new recipes…I will read a cookbook like a new best selling novel! I have a bookshelf full of just cookbooks. One of the things I love best about having my computer and access to the internet is being able to go from place to place searching for recipes.

Sometimes I luck up and find them via your blogs…Like yesterday, when  I found the one below by first reading Mosie’s blog and following her link to Hillbilly Housewife… which led me to Pioneer Woman…where I found the recipe.

Since it is on a public blog, I hope she doesn’t mind me using it here.


club crackers

thin sliced bacon-cut each piece in half

grated parmesan cheese

Lay crackers face up on cookie sheet. Scoop 1 tsp. of parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Completely wrap and cover the whole cracker with a bacon piece as tightly as possible without losing any of the cheese.

Next place the bacon wrapped crackers on a baking sheet that has a rack on it.

Place in 250* oven for about 2 hours.

I fully intend on trying it for my next get together…It only has 3 ingredients and anything wrapped in bacon is usually a hit in my book! (I love baked bacon wrapped mushrooms too….ummm)

Wyatt ( 5 days old) with a gift from a very special friend.

As I was reading the comments I received on my last entry, I was very surprised and highly honored to find out that I had received the Inspiration Award from Lynne!

It could not have came at a better time…You made my day Lynne and raised my broken spirit back up. God bless you my friend.


Now who do I nominate for this award???

Without hesitation, I nominate all the wonderful friends and family who follow my blog and all the friends of whose blogs I follow…

So to all to gather here ;

Feel free to take this award and post it on your blog.

For without you… my friends and my family, I would not and could not have gone on.

You are an inspiration and I love how you say hopefuls instead of resolutions. I have many of those too.

I can handle hopefuls rather than some other word, just a bit better. The pictures of Wyatt are precious. You call cleaning the house & walking the pups not much? When I clean the house well, I feel like I have done a lot actually. It reached 50+ here today also, with lovely sun shining. ~Mary

Congratulations on your award dear friend. Loved seeing the picture of Danny's mama with Wyatt. He's growing like a weed, already standing and almost holding himself up. What a handsome little guy. (Hugs)Indigo
