I only had one injury making these, I sewed the 3 sided hide needle right through my thumb nail, yup, had to get a nail clipper and clip off my fingernail and yes I was a geek about it and took a picture.
|Just barely missed my finger|
ok, once the picture of my moccasins was up here and enlarged, the color just looked so off, so I took it off, (is that too many offs in one sentence?) I will try to take a better picture in the morning with better light and insert it here.
|I have just concluded that black is difficult to photograph, but here they are|
Speaking of my lunch, a long time ago I wrote a post about my New Years plan to better eating and I have been sticking to it for the most part, although I still snarf down a bag of potato chips once in a while. (and we will not talk about all the tacos I ate in Mexico) I find the easiest way for me to eat healthy is when I am working because I always take a packed lunch to work with me. I pack my lunch in the evenings, sometimes I will even pack a whole bunch of lunches on the weekend. By pre-packing them I put more thought into what to pack instead of being stuck with whats in the fridge at the last minute and I am also avoiding packing what I am hungry for at the time, when time is limited I tend to pack unhealthier stuff. A fairly common lunch for me these days is a baggie with a cut up orange and two cut up apples, I always cut up my fruit because it's easier to eat with one hand when you're driving a tractor, I squeeze a lime in the bag and spice it up with my favorite spice that I bring from Mexico called "Tajin Clasico" which according to the ingredient list is just Chili, salt and lime...so good, the best part is drinking the juice that is left on the bottom of the bag. I also pack a baggie of cut up vegetables, which is a bit sad tasting right now but soon I will have garden produce, the baggie gets bigger then. We are only working 8 hours days right now so my lunches don't need to be that big, once I start working 12 hour days my lunch is so big I have to make two trips to carry it to the car in the morning, just kidding...but seriously I pack a lot of food then. Working outside seems to make me so much hungrier plus I love snacking when I am mundaneisly (I know that is not a word) driving a tractor all day so I make sure I pack plenty of fruit and vegetables to munch on all day. My favorite last year was a big bread bag full of my home grown cherry tomatoes tossed with a wee bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt....could munch on them all day long. I can't wait for garden produce, the organic produce in our local grocery store is very limited so I can't be too choosy right now.
