Boy I am truly sorry it has been quite some time since my last post and so much has happened! New grand baby, my son leaving home and moving away, and traveling to take my son a car being that his truck barely got him to Provo Utah.
We took my son our classic car so that he can get around as his truck broke down and needs lots of repairs! So today I am just sharing a few pictures of that trip and the car we took him. Utah was just beautiful and we crossed 4 state lines in 2 days, lost 2 tires on the truck! and got back home with a whole $ 9.00! That car my son is standing in front of is a rare car!

Good morning to all! I hope you have a wonderful day!
I have been quite busy with my daughter having her second child another little girl named Zoey! Welcome Zoey!
She was born Sept 2, 2014 and weighed 6 pounds 11 ounces and 18 inches long
Right now she is doing well at home and has lots of love around her. The pictures I am sharing are of Joey, daddy and grandpa holding Zoey.
Yesterday I was teaching me how to make felt flowers and the flower is a blue rose I was creating and teaching myself. I think I will give a tutorial on how I did this rose a little later on and maybe I show how to make a different flower I have a few ideas running around in my head for creating felt flowers. This one is one you could tie around your wrist I am using felt and ribbon, thread and a heavy duty glue. I have my stores closed for a bit because I need to help a little with the grand baby and my son will be leaving and moving away so I have to help a little there also, it has been a little tough the past few weeks as its been very dry here on the Oregon coast which I think this is the driest summer I have seen since I move here in 1985. Its been so dry there has been no work for my husband and son and I can't believe I have actually been hoping and praying for rain! yikes! Why do I say yikes well winters here is nothing but rain, rain, rain, and more rain. I have loved the hot summer here but it does come with a few set backs. I am doing a vote for yea or nay on a tutorial on how to make this felt rose just leave a comment in the comments and I might even pick someone to win the felt rose! if I get lots of comments!

These were caught in the Columbia river! yum! were they great grilled with a seasoning I made up to put on them!
My son's holly terror! yes he is I came home yesterday to find all my phone books tore up! Bucky must have thought it would make a neat birthday present for me!

I did have a butter milk pancake mix and began to think I bet I could make muffins the dough would rise well with out the soda or powder.

so this is what you will need:
2 cans of Garlic fire roasted chopped tomatoes
1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1/2 cup of chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup of sliced Mango frozen Mango works the best
1 1/2 cups of Cilantro
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp of Cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl starting first with the tomatoes and adding the peppers last mix well do not drain any of the canned items. You can make this hotter by adding more Cayenne pepper or a Jalapeno pepper sliced up! You can also add different kinds of beans along such as white beans or pinto beans. You can freeze it also up to 2 weeks in a freezer just place into a freezer container and thaw when you are ready to use it. This is what I do because this recipe makes quite a lot so I freeze about half and put the rest into a container in the refrigerator.
I love it because its an easy way to get some yummy salsa quick!
