An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked

Stop and Smell the Flowers

35 Comments

Midterms are absolutely sucking up all my time, spare or otherwise. Inevitably, that means less cooking, less crafting, and thus less blogging. Just a few more days, a couple more essays and assignments to get through, before I’ll be granted a merciful Spring Break. For now, it’s all I can do to take a few minutes and enjoy the latest hints of the new season, a much-needed reminder that there is more to life than work. Perhaps everyone else could benefit from the same.

  7. Excelente fotografia, Particularmente no soy de poner Wallpapers en mi
    PC por mi trabajo y necesito libre la pantalla. Pero se apreciar el trabajo de muchas personas que crean o comparten imagenes para este fin.
    Las flores,los animales etc es un buen recurso. Pero siempre recomiendo
    algo de creatividad para eso existen muchos programas. Ojala este comentario no les resulte penoso.Me gusto mucho la fotografia pero soy de laa personas que si hacen un comentario lo hacen de verdad.

  8. We have these growing outside of our condo. Melody and I were admiring them on way to the playground this afternoon. She was quite excited about the flowers.

  9. Beautiful photo. Hear, hear, on what you said about enjoying the simple joys in life. Good luck on all your assignments and exams :)

  10. What a beautiful photo! I snapped a similar shot (lesser in quality, though!) at the Pere Lachaise cemetary in Paris the other day, because I was so terribly excite by the hint of Spring! Good luck with the mid-terms – at least you know it’ll be over soon!

  11. What a beautiful photo! The lighting is just… stunning. Thank you for sharing!

  12. Oh wonderful! I love the photo! I’ve been seeing these flowers everywhere on campus. I’ve never seen them at my house before (which is just two hours away!).
    Thank you for the background! ^O^

  15. Oh, by the way-
    I made your Chocolate Chickpea Spread this morning (replaced the sugar with agave and omitted the water and coffee powder, and almonds in place of peanut butter- because we’re all out) AND IT WAS AMAZING. My mom and sister thought so, too. I had it for breakfast spread on a rice tortilla and with apple slices- absolutely incredible!

    Thanks SO MUCH for all the delish recipes! I’ve loved all the ones I’ve tried!
