Collecting my Thoughts...

Well, I am attempting to collect my thoughts and grab ahold of my days, though they still seem a little frenzied now and then...

Today was absolutely beautiful... the sun was shining, the air was clear, the birds were singing outside my bedroom window, and life was good!

My mother and I went over to a lovely friend's house for lunch and she showed me how to cook "Fritatta" (Sp?) and it was delicious! For those who aren't sure what a Fritatta is, (I wasn't until I saw it made) It's kind of like Quiche, but without a crust. Fritatta is made with eggs, and then whatever you want to throw in them, cooked in a pan until they're like a thick, fluffy egg pie. Delicious! Ours was made with tomatoes, romaine lettuce (did you know you can cook it? It's very good!) cheddar cheese, parsley, thyme, and parmesan cheese. Mmmmmmmm. :) Wish I had a picture to show you... but I didn't have my camera!

Well, the other day we talked about me getting my driver's license finally (After having had about 3 years of learner's permit... yeah....) I kind of felt like this little guy:
But I'm sure I'll get over that feeling. :D

And I know ya'll are very curious about what I am making with my crochet blocks....

But... ahem, *cough* I just realized I didn't download pictures of it yet... *blush* so you'll have to wait to see what it looks like, but I will tell you.
I'm making an Afghan! (blanket, but the proper name is afghan) When it is completed, it will fit my Queen-size bed. :) I am very very close to being all done. I can hardly wait!

In fact, I think I'll go work on it right now. Ta-ta! :)


  1. Hi Julia,
    What pretty pictures!! I always enjoy your colorful posts. :)

    The "Fritatta" sounds really good! Maybe you could post the recipe with pictures sometime, because I would love to try it! :)

    Oh, an afghan! That's a great idea. I can't wait to see the finished product! I bet you're really excited about getting done with it and being able to use it.

    ~ Love,

    P.S. - Did you get my e-mail? ;)

  2. Hi Lindsay,

    Yes! I did get your email... I just sent you a reply. Thanks for the reminder!! :D

    The Fritatta was delicious... I will definitely try to write down what my friend did and turn it into a recipe... probably try it myself again... and take pictures. :)

    I am very excited about the afghan! I am trying to finish it before we host homechurch on Sunday. :)
