Weekend Wonderment

This past weekend was not only productive, but down right fun!

I did a little "school work" on Saturday afternoon and the rest of the weekend was mine. (Or should I say "ours" since my hubby was home?!) It's quite rare that I have that much free time on a weekend, so I took full advantage of it.

I seriously don't know what came over me, but I was motivated to cook. I know, I know...can you believe it?! I think Pioneer Woman's cookbook was the impetus I needed to get my you-know-what into the kitchen.

For dessert Saturday night, I whipped up Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler from PW's cookbook. Did I mention that I am in lust with her cookbook? All of the step-by-step instructions are accompanied by pictures--a true blessing for a visual learner like me! (Now, I just need a cookbook stand.)

But if you don't want to shell out cold, hard cash for PW's cookbook, head over to her website where you can find this recipe and many others. (Or click on the hyperlink above.) I'd highly recommend this delicious cobbler. But be sure to pair it with vanilla ice is yummy!

On Sunday morning, Brian and I cooked up another PW recipe. This time, we made an "Egg-in-a-Hole" for breakfast. Well, technically speaking, we made about four--two for each of us--but who's counting?! And the funny thing is, I'm not really an egg person. I eat them every so often, usually scrambled, but these Eggs-in-a-Hole were just superb. And so simple. :-)

You'll notice I have no pictures to share. What can I say? I was just too busy eating...

After church on Sunday morning, while Brian watched back-to-back football games, I delved into two watercolor projects I'm working on for a USD class called "Teaching Art to Children." For the purposes of this independent study class, I am the child. I'm, by no means, creating masterpieces, but I am having fun. For me, watercolor painting is much like coloring. I don't do it very often, but whenever I do, I feel so relaxed and at peace.

P.S. Speaking of color and peace--please bear with me as I'm a stream-of-consciousness writer--last week, I witnessed the coolest thing while I was driving home from work. I saw a rainbow from beginning to end. First time I'd ever seen an entire rainbow! Its arch stretched right over I-80 between Truxel and Northgate. I made a wish as I passed below it, but if I'd been granted a second one, I would have wished for a camera to capture it.

Hope you had a fun weekend, too!
