My Mummy Door

Since my office moved into an actual school this year (instead of the basement of a church) I have more students and staff walking by my door. I found this idea on Pinterest and decided to recreate it on my door: You need: White party streamers (I used 2 rolls) double sided tape 2 inch masking tape 2 small paper plates black construction paper scrap of pink paper Here is what you do: You start anywhere on your door. I chose the top. Using the doublesided tape-tape an end of the streamer on the edge of the door. Go across the door at an angle. When you get to the other side put some double-sided tape down horizontally on the edge and run the tape across it, then fold it back like this: DSCN0854 Go back and forth like this-you will need more tape on the door edge but the longer the piece the less times you have to retape: Keep going. It will look like this: DSCN0851 DSCN0859 Make sure you go in all directions to give your door a wrapped Mummy look: DSCN0861 When you are done, you want to take the 2-inch masking tape and run it over the door edge to seal off the edges, then trim the dangles: DSCN0857 Finally, take the plates and paper and make Eyes, Mouth and Nose. VOILA! DSCN0862 I LOVE my Mummy! The kids do, too!

My Favorite Sandwich

When I was in college years ago I would walk through our student hall several times a week.  I would always stop at the Vegetarian Sandwich stand.  I would watch the vendor making sandwiches from his very short list of offerings.  They sounded wonderful but I have 3 very annoying food allergies that make many vegetarian meals off limits (almonds, bananas, avocados) so I avoided sandwiches like Peanut Butter and Bananas and Avocado and Tomatoes.   But one sandwich always caught my eye.  I watched it being made for weeks before I finally jumped in line and ordered one.  It became my favorite sandwich of all time.
It is simple enough to make at home:

The Apple and Cheddar Sandwich: DSCN0849 Spread some Miracle Whip on 2 pieces of Wheat Bread Slice an apple and put on the bottom piece of bread Pile some cheddar cheese on top add some chopped walnuts top with the 2nd piece of bread That's it. The vegetarian stand also added sprouts...but I rarely do. You can change Miracle Whip for Mayo..walnuts for pecans...wheat bread for white...whatever works for you....but TRY IT! It is Yummy!

Busy Night

Driving home from a weekend away I saw this sky.  Count the airplanes.  There were even more than I could catch in a moving car with a point and shoot....
