Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Hot Dog Days

There's at least two hot dog stands within a half mile radius of where I work downtown but it's a rare lunch hour when I will splurge on these even though they are quite tasty and delicious. These food carts have all the fatty, salty things I should avoid so I do my best not to eat them. I only succumb a couple of times a year as a special treat on a Friday afternoon or if I completely forgot to bring lunch with me or just can't get into something healthy, organic and expensive. Ah, vinegar and salt flavored potato chips! Ah , barbecue flavored potato chips!  Ah, steamy brown, spicy shiny hot dogs wrapped in foil and smothered in very green relish! Puffy white bread roll smeared with unbelievably yellow mustard! Orange soda with no ice! All for less than $3!  A perfect American snack!
