Its a Snowman kinda day

Happy Saturday all.

I have been busy completing some orders for Snowmen nornies. I "think" fallish weather has come to arizona. It is still getting into the 90s during the day but at night it cools into the 60s. We can still swim in our pool its nice and cool but soon that will also come to an end.

As you can see below there are alot of them.  Lots of snowmen being made today.

This is one of my own designs and you can use them as tucks or ornies. They look so cute in person!

I also bought my first pattern from Chestnut Junction.
I say first because her pattern was so easy and oh my gosh I am in LOVE with this snowman. I will be buying more from her.

Isnt he just adorable!!  This pattern is called Shlomo 
You can find it here. shlomo pattern

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Mean while around here

Happy Weekend all!

I have been seeing the beginnings of fall around on Pinterest and everyones blogs.

Where I live in Arizona there is very little fall or change this time of the year. Thought I would share a  few pictures of where I live.

This is near where I work. In real life the purple is alot brighter but for some reason my camera was not getting it. Yes..lots of dirt LOL

These are the papago mountains. The Phoenix Zoo is near here and some duck ponds.
When it gets cooler I will take some pics there.

This is on my drive home from work. Its funny as a kid I would always say these mountains look light rocky road ice cream. LOL

As  a kid I spent many weekends climbing these mountains.  There is one near hear called the Whole in the rock. Its a hard climb, BUT when it cools off I am going to tackle it and take pics.
You can see the whole Phoenix valley from that mountain.

I do not know why the Lord place my family here in Arizona. LOL. But he did and this is where we are to be I believe. For now. So I will try and find and share the Lord's beauty!

Clean eating

Happy Tuesday all.

Thought I would share a pic with you.

Remember I was doing a clean eating challenge?

Well that it was...a Challenge!!! Out the gate did good!
Then I got lazy, slipped into OLD habits.


But I didnt slip as far back as to when I started. Now with my GP ( gastroparesis) some clean eating was a challenge. No salads here. But roasted veggies in the oven were no problem.

 Here is one of the meals. Its sorta chicken soup in a crockpot.

Everything organic and clean!

So yummy!

I am getting better at preparing. That for me is the hardest part. 

I have not weighed myself. I am suppose to in a few days. I can tell on certain parts of my body something has happened LOL.

I tracked my eating daily on
and let me tell you it would HURT when I would put in a pudding snack. LOL

But what I learned most is my ratios. Between fats, carbs, and protein.
I will continue to explore this because honestly...I feel led by the Lord to get healthy.

More to come. Maybe someday I will post my food tracking!

Arizona really acts funny sometimes.
I have lived here my whole 40 years of life, you would think I would be use to it by now.

We have been in the neck of the heat 108 degree heat. 
Monsoons that mainly brought dust not that much water.
and then....

2 days  ago storms roll in and cool us off to 79 degrees and
almost overflow my pool LOL

This is driving down a freeway near my home. The heavy rain clouds were coming in.
The sun was shinning through. 
The Mountains were just so.
Even though its the desert. Even in the desert I can find beauty.
