Terrier Tuesday!

Hello! I am excited about this week's Terrier Tuesday! A photographer friend of mine, Allyson Moyes, was over and took some really fun photos of Alabama and I.
She is an amazing photographer, and I feel pretty lucky that she took our photos!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Dinner, Homemade (lime)Chili.

I don't know about you, but I have always hated chili.
I have also always hated  Cantaloupe, and Honeydew melon. 
These are foods that I have always wanted to love! I see people eating them, and they loooove them! 
And I'm not gonna lie, I get a little jealous!  
Lately, I have been trying to pinch my pennies, and use all of the food that I have here, instead of buying new ingredients all of the time, so a couple of nights ago, I decided to try something new. 
A homemade chili.
Well, a sort of chili, just with everything in my cabinets!

1 can of black beans
1 can of unsweetened corn
1 or 2 cans of diced tomatoes
-or 3 or 4 fresh tomatoes skinned and diced
1 small can diced chili's
1 whole lime
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, finely diced
1/2 of a large white onion, chopped
season as you like salt, pepper, chili powder
olive oil
sour cream
shredded cheese 

In a large pan, drizzle a little olive oil, and sautee the onions, and garlic until they have softened a little bit. 
Add the rest of the ingredients in no particular order... turn the heat down a little bit, and let 'stew' for about 30 minutes.
The longer it sits, the more the flavors will come out....

Serve, and top with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro! YUM!

It's Terrier Tuesday!

How is it only Tuesday?!
I feel like it should be Friday already, don't you?
Work has been brutal the past couple of weeks. 
I have had the same schedule for more than a year, and I can't get accustomed to it.
Every morning, at 4 am, my alarm goes off, and I think, 
'is someone paying a cruel joke on me?
...because it's not funny.
You'd think that after a year, I would be somewhat used to this routine, but I'm not.
It's so rough!
Argh! Can anyone relate??
Any Suggestions?
I really think it's time for a change, I need to find a way to work for myself!

I thought since I haven't done Terrier Tuesday in awhile, that I would make up for some lost time, and post a few photos from the past couple of days!
Spring has finally come around, so I have been hiking loads, and spending a lot of time outside.
I really hate the heat, so I have been trying to soak up these days that are 70-80 degrees.

I need to frame a couple of these! 
Don't you think??
