Ho-Hum. Hummus!

Forgive me, for I have been in a robotic state lately. Zoned out. Lacking creativity and the desire to create. In la la land. Etcetera. Not sure why, but I hope to come back to Me soon.
So! Over a month ago now, I was given the Kreativ Blogger Award by the marvelous Roe of Yes, Honey Chyle.

Thank ya very much! :-D

It's been a while since I've done a "tell us something interesting about yourself" post (which is a stipulation of the award), but let's see if I can come up with 7...




1. I'm currently teaching myself law. Lately I've been poring over all sorts of legal books, documents, codes, regulations, etc. etc. etc. (Now that I think of it, maybe that's why I've been zombie-like and uncreative, ha!) The stuff is wordy and usually unnecessarily repetative, but I get it! Watch out, cause once I've got it down, I intend to do lots of good with it.

2. I currently do contract sewing for a local momogram/screen printing shop. Alterations, sewing patches onto uniforms--for local electrical, gas, oil, (etc.) companies--and other miscellaneous sewing is what I do there. Perhaps that's another reason I'm out of it! :-/

3. Every night, 9pm central time--if I'm home--I watch King of the Hill on Cartoon Nework. Too funny/crazy! I've always liked it, but only lately have I watched consistently. (It's on now.)

4. I juice and drink a beet/carrot/apple/parsely mixture daily. Well, almost.

5. This weekend I'm supposed to attend a camping retreat. Outdoors, in a tent, people from Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, healthy foods, presentations about working the land, etc. It was gonna be a great experience! Been planning for it for over 2 months. But I can't go now. :-(

6. Last Tuesday I went on a field trip to New Orleans as a "chaperone" with the fashion class from a local school. It was enjoyable, but I was sooo exhausted upon returning. Teens can be more of a handfull than kindergarteners! Whew!!! Next week I'll be going to speak to these same students about my experiences with fashion design.

7. I've been asked to be and will be the birth assitant at a natural, home birth this October. Eeeek! :-) (I've previously expressed my fascination with birth.)


Ok, good to see I can still come with something about myself.


Just for the heck of it, here's a picture of a "hummus bowl" I hooked up recently based on something very similar (ok, the exact same, ha!) that I had at a friend's house recently. (The same friend who I'll be a birthing assistant for :-D .)

Homemade hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, and blue corn chips. Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmm!!

As it gets hotter and hotter here, I'm trying to eat lighter and cooler. I'll be eating this often.

I suggest you try it too!. :-)

Look at you busy lady. Those are all fabulous happenings. Congrats on your award and congrats on your upcoming birth experience =). I have yet to be present at a live birth as an observer or a helper. I want that experience! You'll have to come back and tell us all about it =).

I enjoy that same drink minus the parsley. It is devine. A little celery in a cocktail size serving will have you thinking you ingested alcohol.

I to am interested in a home birth. Do share your experience. You are missed. : >

My sister was a birthing assistant for one of her friends. Such a cool experience.

I look forward to hearing more about that experience.
