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.

  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!
