My professional reading for this summer. I love books by @kylenebeers as they are always so helpful and inspiring. I look forward to having new ideas to use in my classroom at my new school. #arizona #reading #soontobeUtah #summerreading #professionalreading #disruptivethinking

I made some crackers with #chiaseeds. I'm going to try them with homemade guacamole. #arizona #baking #lowcarb #keto

I bought this work of art a few weeks back when I got my first job offer, so that I would have a fond reminder of my time in Arizona. We have cactus in our front yard that bloom and a little quail family that runs around the neighborhood. #arizona #cactusflower #quail #memories

I'm going to try some crafts as I haven't done any in a long time. I'm going to do a counted cross stitch peacock. I'm not sure what I want to do with the Beauty and the Beast fabric. An outfit, quilt, placemats, pillows. I wish I had my maternal Grandma's talent. #arizona #peacock #countedcrossstitch #fabric #beautyandthebeast

My new dress has peacock feathers on it. And pockets. I love it. If I had had it in October I would have worn it for my wedding rehearsal. I'll wear it a lot in the future, starting tomorrow. #arizona #peacock #dress

A new "breadstick" recipe. It is actually a cauliflower "breadstick". It was yummy and I would make it again. #arizona #baking #lowcarb #keto

After the Jabbawockeez show. #jabbawockeez #latergram #lasvegas #nevada

I'm in two states at once both Nevada and Arizona in the past and the future. (Two different time zones.)

I'm not really a copper person. When I was at the gem show a month ago I was talked into the small copper beads but I wasn't sure how I'd use them. I've been thinking it would be cool to have a skirt with peacock feathers on it and I like how they are subtle. I've never worn anything copper color but I decided to give the skirt a try. So tonight before I wear it tomorrow I had to whip up a necklace and a pair of earrings. Unfortunately, I'm out of one of the components to make earrings so I improvised until I get some more in. But this should work for tomorrow. I actually like the combination of the peacock colored shell beads with the copper beads. #arizona #jewelrymaking #peacock #copper

The weather has been nice the last few days, and I was feeling like Spring. I got lots of compliments on this outfit today everywhere I went. Especially the scarf and hat. This is the hat I got last Spring in Albuquerque. (My shirt is a little wrinkled now as I've been wearing it.) #arizona #purple #hat

Fiesta Lime Chicken chowder. It was yummy! It has been cold and rainy here so I wanted something hot for dinner. #arizona #cooking #lowcarb #keto

Last Spring when we were in Albuquerque I found a cool hat shop that had a #fascinator I liked but James didn't. Today at the Havasu Balloon Festival a lady had several fascinators. I liked this one the best and James liked it as well. (I have hat hair since I wore my cloche today.) #arizona #purple #havasu #balloonfestival
