>Art Cards and a tag

>Yesterday was definitely a fun experience. I met my brother for brunch before we set off on our little photographic adventure. We spent a total of 3 hours walking the Biodome and taking pictures. I haven’t uploaded them to my computer yet so you’ll have to be patient if you want to see them. There were a lot of people there, mostly families with young kids but everyone was polite. There was no pushing or shoving. Everyone was there to have fun and enjoy the view of wild animals. My favourites are always the small monkeys. I dream of one day having my very own little monkey! (Hey! Who said dreams can’t come true? Not me!)

Anyway, not much else to say. I have a bit of a cold but nothing major. Just a bit stuffed up so I’m drinking plenty of fluids, eating fruits and veggies and getting some rest. Today, so far, I’ve only been outside to go grocery shopping (it’s cold!) and I baked muffins. I tried a recipe my coworker gave me and it smells yummy. I still have plenty of Vegetarian Spread left for the beginning of the week and I plan on doing something with barley… Found a simple recipe I’ll try after I finish writing this post. I’m really enjoying cooking and baking for myself even if I don’t have the best kitchen. This is the 3rd Sunday in a row that I do it and I’m not giving up! So many recipes I want to try… so much potential for yummy discoveries…

Today’s images are of my Daily Art Card I made last night which is mostly doodling and my 3rd card for the Deck of Me Challenge. Visit my Flickr for more info.

Before I forget, Violette tagged me. I’m supposed to say 5 odd things about myself so quickly here they are:

1. I once spent a whole summer eating almost only dairy products.
2. I love the smell of skunk (not on me though.)
3. I used to be a goth girl.
4. I don’t like ketchup, which leads me to
5. I eat my shepherds pie with mustard. Lots of mustard.

I’m not tagging anyone but if you feel like playing, please do so! Off to cook barley…

Edited at 5:45 pm to add: The barley recipe is delish! It’s Barley Pilaf and it’s a great alternative to rice… I just goggled “barley pilaf” and there seems to be tons of different recipes for it. Follow my lead and try something new! Oh, and you can view my Biodome pics here. Have a peaceful evening!
