Taco Soup Thursday Baby!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, this Thursday morning is another dark and dreary day which means CRAFTING!!!  Got to love that!  I received my box of Graphic 45 goodness yesterday night which means....TIME TO GET CRACKIN' BABY!  The heat is on!  CHA Samples...samples...samples!!!  Can't wait to see what I can come up with!  You guys are going to be thrilled with the new collections...and...STAPLES from Graphic 45!  Yahooooo!

It's funny, or at least I think it's funny...Ever since I've retired from my "real job", I absolutely MUST have noise in the background.  When I design something... I usually have totally quiet...that way I can hear myself talk!  LOL!  True story!  Lately the silence is killing me!  I think it may be the lack of people and chatter around me...I don't know.  Yesterday, while in the studio creating, I wore out the TV remote with the "Play Again" button.  I literally LISTENED to NOT watched...Seven Years in Tibet with Brad Pitt and David Thewlis...FOUR TIMES..I seriously have this movie memorized!  LOL!  True Story Again!

So, I guess the ability to take time to pot pansies is over and the real work begins!  The only way to work...On a deadline!  Love It!  Truly I do!  With that said, I wanted to leave you with my most comforting thought for the day...Dinner....Taco Soup Thursday!

My friend Barb made this for me one night and I devoured it like I hadn't eaten since Thanksgiving day!  It's TOO-LICIOUS BABY!!  She was kind enough to send me the recipe and it's easy enough for me to make!  Just serve it with some shredded cheddar cheese and some tortilla chips!  AWESOMENESS!  Hope you give it a try...

  2. I found two things about "retirement" 1) your busier and 2) you can't stand the quietness!!! right?
    I put TMC channel on just to hear voices or my :girlie" movies also just to have something going on in the back ground......who ever thought of the pharse just to have some "peace and quietness" doesn't really know how quiet is so quiet!! lol thanks Elaine for passing the recipe to Barb and thanks Barb for passing it on to Jim and thanks Jim for passing it on to us....guess what's for dinner tonite........sorry I haven't been around ...but you know life ...it gets in the way sometimes..
