“Have you been to Hapeville lately?”

When a change in plans altered the day.  I texted my friends.  “Have you been to Hapeville lately?”  With the addition of Porsche, there’s a lot of delightful art, and delicious food happening in little historic Hapeville, GA! 


See how many butterflies can you find on your visit!

And of course all that hunting makes you hungry! 

In the Garden of life 


While Buddy and I tended our gardens, I remembered something my husband said,

“It looks kind of haphazard, but it works.”

 

And I got thinking, events in time may feel or appear haphazardly “planted” or possibly come in unwanted combinations…

Really though, could something so full of life be so random?

Nah…The plan is just not yours.

Thank you God for the seemingly random nature of life, still so full of lush possibility and moments of sense-filling beauty. To You it all makes perfect sense, please help me to see that that’s enough. 

And Buddy, it’s enough for him.

A Moment of Peace

For a break to be effective it doesn’t have to last for days, could be a few hours away.  You just have to let go of everything else you’re letting into your head.  Took the new camera out for a spin after evening Mass and went up to Dahlonega, GA and let everything else fall away and just be, me, myself and the camera…Well and the Budster 😉

Falafel, what a happy food! 

Little balls of chickpea deliciousness with luscious tahini sauce…Wow! First time even tasting it, let alone making it.  Was fun to make and to eat!  My husband said I hit it out of the park!  Who knew I could falafel?!?

Followed the recipes of Tori Avey – simple, effective culinary brilliance! 

Used peanut oil so they would be crunchy. 

Made the tahini sauce from scratch too! 

Didn’t have time to make GF flat bread so served on open faced toasted UDI’s hotdog buns. 


But I think the part I liked best was sharing this new experience with him.  Trying new things together just never gets old, and we keep it funky fresh 😉
