Applesauce Jar Brought in From Garage to a Warm Kitchen

Like a science experiment.  Drastic temperature change.       Anna (5) said “Get your camera and take a picture. You could win a prize!”

So this is what it looks like when “the bottom falls out”! Applesauce Like a Lava Flow on a Kitchen Counter


Memories in a Kitchen and Pyrex Bowls

Peek under the dishtowel. Watch bread dough climb the walls of the white interior. A yellow Pyrex bowl. Glass sounds different if you thump it when it’s full.

Poke a navel.  Let it rest.  Turn out onto a floured board. Knead. Shape. Let rise again. Bake.  Slice a warm loaf.  Butter the slice. Inhale.    Remember.       (rutheh.wordpress.com)

Coho Derby Sheboygan Fish Preparers

Here are the young people who prepare the catch.  Don’t look if you are vegetarian. Swift knives, heads flung down the stainless steel ledge, hosed off and bagged.  The waiting men said they taste like salmon when I asked.  A wet, bloody concrete floor, and a memorable aroma…Coho Derby Sheboygan Fish Preparers

Driving past woolen mills,resale shops, an independent bookstore, saw this “white/black Art Deco Vitrolite facade” on Washington Avenue.  Fully restored just two years ago as it turns out. A perfect summer afternoon.

Walking on the wharf along the Sheboygan river there was what looked like a homemade boat, loaded with fishnets, a light right on it

Husks on the Front Porch Before Dinner

Oven fried chicken, red skinned mashed, zucchini, mixed greens with balsamic and olive oil, sliced peaches with a lemon squeezed on them, chocolate  Truffles from Betsy Ann Chocolates(courtesy of Vincie)and corn on the cob that James’ parents grew in Ohio, butter and salt and pepper.   It was a summer dinner. Two of my three grown children home accompanied by their significant other.  Happy mother.

Chinese Paper Lantern Launch Conneaut Beach Club

As the paper lanterns fill with hot air, they rise up to the sky and float away into the night.  Biodegradable.  Early hot air balloons.  The gathering crowd mesmerized by the sight.
