Homemade Flour Tortillas and Retirement Card

Take a good look at the photo and then let me regale you with my tale of virtuousness. ;) On the menu last night was tacos - simple, fast, cheap and we love them. However when we got home I discovered that I had no taco shells. What does any normal blog obsessed woman do in a case like this? A blog search of course! I found a recipe for homemade flour tortillas and got to cooking. These are so EASY and are sure to be a staple in our home now. One of the things that appealed to me the most is that I know exactly what is in these and there are no preservatives or ingredients I can't pronounce. They were quite good and I was so pleased with myself as we ate our dinner. I also want to put in a plug for Google blog searches for recipes. Sure we could go to the recipe magazine sites and such, but I guess I like to read the stories behind the recipes and read about what works for real people.
After dinner I headed back to my room for some papercrafting fun. One of the men I work with is retiring on Friday and making a masculine card proved to be a challenge for me! I think I like it though as it passed muster with my husband. "Honey, if you were opening a retirement card would this one be ok???" :)

And I should admit that the card didn't take nearly as long as the photo shoot of the card did. Some day I'm going to sit and actually read a little bit more about that cool new camera I have and stop letting all those buttons and settings intimidate me - LOL!

Blessed is the person who can enjoy the small things, the common beauties, the little day-by-day events; sunshine on the fields, birds on the bough, breakfast, dinner, supper, the daily paper on the porch, a friend passing by. So many people who go afield for enjoyment leave it behind them at home. - David Grayson
