After reading about these YUMMY Calzones on Randi's blog I couldn't help but make some for dinner last night.....They don't exactly look like Randi's but mam-o-man they were absolutely divine!!!! I stuffed them with meatballs and grated cheddar cheese, served them with a creamy tomato sauce and had a green salad on the side that I made with fresh veges from my garden.... YUMMO!!!!

The most common snake around here is the Eastern Brown. Isn't it just HORRIBLE!!!You see..... Snakes are the hot topic of conversation around our house at the moment. On Friday evening, around 5pm, I had my very own 1 metre long Eastern Brown snake in my living room.... OMG I can hear you say..... Well the worst of the story is yet to come..... My little princess was playing right where it crawled out of not 20 seconds before I saw it..... Can you believe it????? She could of been bitten, then what??? My hairs stand on end just remembering it all.... It took DH and I just over an hour to catch it.
I think that my biggest weakness when it comes to snakes is the fact that I know nothing about them. So first thing Monday morning I went and talked with the Rangers at The National Parks office. They where really helpful and gave me loads of info on Snakes in my area. They also told me about these little kits you can make. I'll put 1 at the front door, 1 at the back door, and 1 on every vehicle just to be safe.... I'd love any advice that anybody has in regards to these 'deadly' creatures. Have you ever had a snake in your house???? If so what did you do???
On the craft front.... A friends daughter turned 1 over the weekend so I whipped her up a pencil roll....Can you see my new labels???? I got them from here... They're really cheap, about 20 cents each, the only problem is that you don't get many colour combinations. So if you're really set on a certain colour, like purple, then you're out of luck... I think black and white looks just fine though, do you????I also made her up a set of these clips....I used the same basic 'sleeping bag' technique that Amy Karol used but instead of sewing the felt to the clip like she suggests I used my you bute hot glue gun and I think that work a treat!!
