Adventures: blurred.


At least that's how it feels. No photo evidence lately for what we've been up to. Except for the ones at the bottom of this post.

I've been helping a friend in a wheel chair get an electric wheelchair. I spent our last sewing day working on Miss Ashlee's underskirt and over skirt. Sure wish I had pictures of that day. It was fun!

We have been pulling out monster weeds from the garden, working on photography items to sell on ETSY. I spent the day today doing yard work, making some edibles, and house cleaning for some friends who were out of town to see a doctor.

We are getting into the swing of school work again. Why does that always seem such an odd change?

This was an evening of playing with the black light.

Reminds me of something, but I can't remember what.

And here is a photo for a theme my sister and I decided to do last week. "Weave".

Hey, I'm only just warming up!

Rosh Ha'Shanah


I rarely get any photos when I host a party. I get too involved in cooking and readying.

This was the first Rosh Ha'Shanah party I'd ever done, much less hosted, so it was all new to me, and to all our guests. Many dishes I'd not only never prepared, but had never even tasted before.

The themes are sweetness - so we had many sweet dishes; fruit - to celebrate bountiful harvest; and joy - in anticipation of the joy of the future.

Here are the only pictures I took, when I finally remembered to pick up my camera...

I love to involve everyone, so some of the ladies created this lovely platter filled with fruits, many of which are unusual to the palate. There were no pomegranates to be found anywhere, but we had gogi, medjool dates, starfruit, kiwi, jicama... quite a few things.

And a quick step back to take a shot of all of us squeezed at my table.

Worn from polishing 1000000 square feet of formica...
