Real Time...May Edition

A couple of weeks ago the charger to my MacBook sparked and popped and BAM! decided not work anymore. So ever since then, my poor computer has sat. Dead.

Poor old Mac. And did you know a new charger is 80 bucks? EIGHTY DOLLARS people! I think I might buy the off brand that goes for 18. Sheesh. It's highway robbery.

Anyway, I'm typing this from my Blogger app which means the font will be weird and tiny, unless I remember to get myself into a computer and change the font. Slim chances there.

Winding down the school year...9 days left people! And then summer vacation! I can NOT wait. I just saw something in Facebook about year round school and how summers off were built in back in the farming days. Well let me tell you how I feel about year round school:

HECK. NO.

That would be the thing that pushed me over the edge (that I often teeter on) to homeschool.

I can hear the rain drip dropping into the roof...such a comforting and utterly annoying sound all at the same time. I'm sick of the cool weather...but I suppose it could be worse, and really, we've had quite a beautiful spring so far, so I really shouldn't complain!

I'm super grateful for the weekend...hoping to prep our garden and start planting soon. Will this be the year I actually do some canning?

We shall see.

Well, g'night for now!

Til next time...

I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
