Halloween Decorations have increased significantly from a single Pumpkin carved to be a Jack O’lantern with a candle flickering inside.
It was about 14 degrees but my app said it felt like 2 degrees and yet the sun was out and the sky blue.
I’d just arrived from Pittsburgh. The roads were clear so I made it in about 3 1/2 hours to Clintonville Ohio for lunch with Charlie and Laura.
They’d just pulled into the driveway and we were going inside to warm up. He loves the snow.
Just noticing the difference in the light in full sun and then on the back porch deck in the shade.
Thanks to Laura for sending me this Little Library photo. Clintonville Ohio sure has a lot of these little libraries. This one with a Lego diorama and a note to leave the Lego please.
Little Free Library purpose:
AND they are all around my daughter’s neighborhood. In fact there is one at the end of their street.
I was fascinated to see so many in just a few blocks as we drove to the playground. Today I made a run to buy knitting needles on Indianola and wound around the tree lined streets and came across of few more. Thought they would be good for the weekly photo challenge=
On my way to Laura and James’ house, I saw this cool theatre, Studio 35, and read the marquee. Pulled over to the curb and got out the camera. Thought it sounded like a fun evening. Took the shot from the car and the day was a gray one.
This theatre looks l like the ones I knew growing up. No theatre in Pittsburgh serves beer as far as I know.
My DIL was teasing about my getting home to watch the Oscars Sunday night, live stream on a computer as I have no TV that gets any channels. It is always fun to see the best and worst dressed though. A lot of hype in the media. But this image evokes nostalgia for me. One of these visits to Columbus I am going to have to go watch a movie here.
Just last Thursday I ate dinner at a friend’s and she told me that someone told her, “Butter is love.”
A year ago this month the butter sculptor and “butter cow lady” from Iowa, Norma Lyon, passed away and her obituary is in the New York Times.
The butter in this photo was captured in early April. When we lived in Germany the commissary sold Danish butter and I see my family buying Irish butter these days.
What’s your favorite butter?
In Laura and James’ neighborhood, I see a lot of people lined up at this food truck whenever it is open- Ray Ray’s Hog Pit in Clintonville. I read that on Sunday they feature a special of grass fed beef brisket. Laura and James are veg so we’ve eaten at the Whole World Natural Restaurant & Bakery across the street or at their home. But one of these visits I am going to get in this line and see why everyone is willing to wait in the chill air, order up and eat! It must be really good. In fact, I think one weekend I should make a tour of Columbus Food Trucks Here is one review
