Go Pack Go! (*a bookmark buster)

*Bookmark buster is a series in which I will try to tackle all the patterns, recipes, crafts and decorations in my book marks!
We are going camping this weekend! that summer is over oh well.  We are headed to John Day, OR for my family's annual hunting trip.  This is a trip I made with my family from infant to preteen.  At the age 13 or so I decided I was too cool to miss school.  Now I am trying to show my daughter what is is like to go.  The biggest thing I missed was all the family that gathers there just to hang out.  My dad's aunts and uncles and their offspring, many of which that have their own little ones now.  I am hoping to get some great pictures of camp life and will share them with you next week when I get back.

But for now I want to share with you the great fleece pants I am making for her so she will be toasty warm when the sun goes down.
I used the pattern and tutorial from Make it and Love it. Super tute!  So easy to follow and just look at the results!

Good and Tasty Tuesday: Tomatoes & Tuna

Yay! Yummy food!  Most times it is a pain throwing together something for lunch since it is just me eating it most of the time.  But you do get bored of the same old thing so it is nice to have fresh(er) ingredients in the house to do something new!
I took a couple of tomatoes (that I am suppose to be canning) and a jar of my newly canned tuna and magic happened.  Just a quick concoction to satisfy those taste buds!

Here I am

I really am alive!  I promise.  I have been away and back and away and just plain out of it.  No real good excuses just blah.  So after gentle prodding from a friend I promise I will be back tomorrow with a new Good and Tasty Tuesday.  And I will also be posting later this week what has been keeping me busy (when I am actually doing anything).  Thank you all for reading and commenting. Here is a cute picture of my daughter to make you forget my absence.

Christmas time at the coast we spotted the rare Pacific Sea Monster!
