One of those weeks…

Ya know when the stars align and life seems to start working smoothly… I’m having that right now.

Lucky me! I’m going to ride that wave as long as the powers that be allow it.

Chicken Tortilla Soup…

  • 64oz chicken broth
  • meat from a whole chicken (cooked and chopped up)
  • 1 large yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 big can (30oz) diced tomatoes
  • 4 sm cans (15oz)tomato sauce
  • 1 tiny can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup cumin
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of black beans
  • crushed tortilla chips and cheese for the top

Put chicken broth, all tomato stuff and onions in a large stock pot; stir together and bring almost to a boil. Add everything else and let simmer for an hour. Stir occasionally. Or throw the works in a crock pot. You will have to scale  down.

This makes a big batch, I freeze most of it.

It’s amazing how getting a foot of hair cut off can make you feel like a new person…

Goodbye long hair, it’s not likely I’ll ever see you again.

I like that I have a hairdresser. For well over a decade I have been getting my hair cut from whatever stylist that had 20 minutes to spare in whatever salon I was working in. I didn’t care as long as they came close, I could always fix it later.

Wendy exceeds my expectations. Plus she’s hilarious.

I love this upholstery… 

I’m not really sure what message this skeleton is trying to get across…

Me too…

My mum has buds on it!!

I brought it home, replanted it and all the blooms fell off. But It still looked nice so I left it alone. And now it is going to bloom again, I’m so excited!

It’s good to know that if I get bored with yoga I can always run up to the third floor and learn how to be a stripper…

Could you imagine washing windows on a building like this?

Of course the guy at the bottom holding the ropes is smoking a cigarette and texting.

I made Wynn dog treats…

  • 1 cup finely shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded kale
  • 2 tblsp applesauce

Stir together in a bowl and put whatever size balls will work best for your dog on a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate until dry but not crumbly . I want to say it took a good 6 ish hours to dehydrate these. It really depends on the size. I keep most of them in the freezer, I’ll take ten or so out at a time and keep them in the fridge.

I think I’ll make ones half this size for her next time…

I went to a little workshop the other day on canon flash. I’m unbelievably ecstatic to say,  I finally understand flash…

Ian, my new hero, teaches classes on all different aspects of  photography. I signed up for three more in the next two weeks. I’m gitty I found him.

Our model…

I photographed one year old twin girls the other day, Annika and Cailyn. I had so much fun with them…

Me and mom were both sweating by the time the shoot was over, chasing two babies is a workout.

Happy Tuesday Loves!
