Life Is Not Measured By the Number of Breaths We Take, But By the Moments That Take Our Breath Away!

Wow! It's been a long time...

...since I last posted!

One thing that is bad about having your own business is that you are the only one that works to keep it going!

I'm looking out my studio window right now and there are actually snow flurries in the air. I took pictures of the snow storm of 2017, but never got a chance to post them. I'll refrain from posting them now because by Monday, the weather is going to take a drastic change; it is reported that it will be in the 70s next week!

I can't wait to get out and start walking again. I just bought a stroller for my two dogs to ride in as I walk. My family thinks I have lost it, but I couldn't think of a better way for my 16 year old Cockapoo to join me while I walk. She is hard of hearing and just about blind, but she has a lot of spunk left in her. I used to walk her on a leash all the time, but I fear it may be a little difficult for her now. With the stroller, I will be able to continue getting her out and about. I will have to post pictures of her first ride in the stroller.

Enjoy the weekend; I will be starting my Easter cooking.

Feeling a little Spring Fever here in CNY...

Look at our weather station this past Saturday...


February 18, 2017 and it's 58 degrees...seven (7) day low was 17 degrees. Oh, my goodness! If only the winter weather was done, but I know we can expect more cold and snow at least through March; that's just CNY weather for you! Actually, March can be quite nasty.

At any rate, I have to share another recipe...this time for Spicy Orange Chicken which I made for dinner on Saturday. (The recipe actually made more than in picture, but by the time I grabbed my ipad to take a picture, everyone had already taken a plateful.)



This was super simple to make and so delicious.

After cutting up the chicken and marinating for a couple of hours according to the recipe, the rest of the meal took less 30 minutes to finish.

I served it with Basmati rice and fresh strawberries.

If you would like the recipe, I have included it in my Pinterest, or just click on the picture to go directly to the recipe found on the Tidy Mom blog.

So, what to do on a cold, snowy day like today...



I'm not a skier; too old for sledding down the hill; and basically, not a fan of shovelling! So, I did the only thing I could under the circumstances; I made some homemade Chicken Tortellini Soup...



...and homemade Oatmeal Bread....



Yummy...so good! Both were recipes I found on Pinterest and definitely keepers!

You can get both of the recipes by visiting my Recipes from the web that are keepers Pinterest board!

Stay warm CNYers!  The weather forecast is calling for more snow throughout the overnight!  Yikes!
