I AM FREE!!!   (silly)   I have to say that after watching the bus speed away ....I will miss  my daughter now that she has started school again.  Most summers parents are overwhelmed with the constant scheduling and rearranging for care while we fulfill obligations in life.   This year with her being older it gave me more  freedom and also I think we had some wonderful adventures.  We went horseback riding, camping, hiking, played video games,  worked out, and walking the dogs.  Simple things that we made fun.  I think I'm more weepy than her first day of school.

Well with this  freedom I will have  more studio time and workout time.  I am hoping my Metalsmithing store will be open by Halloween so more time will be a huge help.   I hope today you are able to do something you love as well!  Have a wonderful day!

Here is a recipe that my friends and family love.  I don't eat pork anymore but they all beg me to make it.
