The Final Flight

Breakfast of Champions

I am always filled with joy
when the kids ask for Arepas and Egg Soup for breakfast.

A traditional Colombian breakfast...

and a sweet memory for me of my Momma making this comfort food.

The soup,topped off with fresh cut Cilantro and the Arepas with melted cheese.


Rhinestone Tutorial

After taking an awesome tutorial by Riki on how to solder on rhinestones..

I just couldn't help myself..and ended up going  solder Crazy..
and I ended up with
Happy little pendants.
Thanks Riki.

The Final Flight

Cloudy skies threatened the launch today ..but Atlantis prevailed and shot strait up to the stars..

..Another moment in History..

..That we will never forget.

And to commemorate the special occasion..

and  Hannah.

You know, I actually got choked up by the final flight. I did! I watched the first one take off years ago in my first home and then watched the last one take flight yesterday. It makes me sad. Isn't that strange?! I'm so glad you mentioned it. And I love the cookies!! - Kathy

I have never heard of Arepas and Egg Soup...looks and sounds delicious! Adore the gorgeous pendants (be still my heart)! hope you have a wonderful week!

kj said...

this post has everything! the breakfast, kids, cookies and pendants are my favorites. oh, that's just about everything!

cat, i am so impressed with your soldering skills. i had a summer job soldering through college (not the proper placement of phrases, haha, it wasn't the college that got soldered) and it's so obvious how precise and perfect your work is.

how are your friends? i hope one or two are true blue :^)

Cat, thanks for sharing one of your family traditions...they look yummy! I bet my oldest son would love to try cooking them too - he loves to make us homemade pancakes and waffles.
I've been out of touch in blogland due to super slow Internet connecitons here at the beach, so it was a treat catching up with you today. I'll have to check out Riki's tutorial...I know I've burned a few precious rhinestones in the soldering process. I'm sure her tutorial would be a huge help!
Those moon cookies look son is participating in a moonbot competition so these would be right up his alley too!

Katy Cameron said...

Hmm, now that's something I don't think I'd ever have thought of for breakfast. I'll point out to my flatmate, the next time he laughs at me for eating freshly podded peas for breakfast, that I'm not the only savoury breakfast nut out there that isn't eating bacon and eggs ;o)

Lisa said...

I have this sudden craving for cookies! Dare I start baking at 11:00 pm? I would love to taste that soup, and I'll have to google the recipe. You always share the best!
