dueling hobbies

By Tara Zandra | April 3, 2008

I had a brainstorm with a scrapbook layout I was stuck on and found exactly what I needed at a scrapbook store today. I also found embellishments for the other layout I was working on and it looks so much better now. Tabitha was at a movie party and Daisy was napping so I had a good time working on my scrapbook layout without interruptions. I felt very in the groove and was enjoying myself. Then, this evening while Daisy was drinking milk on my lap, I was perusing boutique clothes on ebay. I was majorly inspired for an outfit for Tabitha. But I can only work on one hobby at a time because I only have one craft table. Either I can have a layout out while it’s being worked on, or I can have my sewing machine out while I’m working on outfits. I don’t have room for both. The only other alternative is my dining room table which would mean eating at Little Mermaid folding tables while sitting in a toddler chair. That arrangement would only fit one person in this house.

Here’s Daisy’s photos we had done last weekend. Again, they are the dreaded picture of a picture so please don’t mind the quality too much.



Today was everybody’s favorite dinner- tomato soup. It cooks in the crockpot all day and smells so good in the afternoon. So simple to make and yet so satisfying to the tastebuds. I also made black bean tacos. I fried whole black beans with chopped onion, garlic and cilantro and added the juice of one lime and a bit of kosher salt. Man were they good. We put them in corn tortillas and topped with cheese. Ideally it should have been Monterey Jack cheese, but I didn’t have any on hand so it was just regular cheddar. The taco filling is definitely something I’ll make again.
