The Last Tomatoes

Combined my few tomatoes, the ones my neighbor brought over and some brown cherry tomatoes from the store- olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and a pinch of Italian Seasoning.

Once the sauce cooked down a bit, I tossed in some drained penne and added freshly grated Parmesan. Salad on the side. Delicious supper

It was the combination of colors that invited me to capture this photo.

Thanks Kristin for sharing the gorgeous double rainbows and sunset skies after the storm.

I’m in Pittsburgh but Photographed by Friend in Australia, Guest Blog

Friday night McWalker Yarns hosts a Sip and Stitch Zoom meeting. A great way to connect during the Pandemic.   While we were knitting and chatting, we started talking Halloween.  One of our participants lives in Australia, so our evening meeting is her morning coffee time.  Gayle was saying it will already be Halloween for her at next Friday Night’s Sip and Stitch Zoom meeting. I thought, wait I will don the mask that is on my dining room table.  I sewed this costume for my son Mark in the early 80s.

So here I am sporting the ET mask and Gayle in Australia photographed me and sent it.  With her gracious permission I am sharing her photo of me.

I “met” Gayle through the Woolswap program she runs, as well as many other knitters around the world, sharing fiber, creativity and inspiration with one another.

 

It’s me. You can see my knitted shawl peeking.

Grandmother, Her Sisters and Friends

My son Mark found my mother Marian and her brother John in the photos. My mom was born in 1912 so this photo must be about 1914.

Bee on Purple Asters

Bee photography in my friend Joan’s garden has been an interesting experience. Joan keeps two hives of bees. When we walk through the garden she knows which bees are hers. When I left the first time she gave me a jar of honey

My return trip to Joan’s I took her a hat of apple butter. As we sat outside, I was determined to photograph a bee on the purple asters. The bees wouldn’t land for long and my hand wasn’t that steady, coming up with lots of blurry shots.

My mother loved asters. Joan said last year she inadvertently cut them down to the ground thinking it a weed. And look at the gorgeous flowers now.

One more bee on a flower image.

Got Grease?

Unable to find an online presence for this business, you’ll have to dial the number on the back of the truck.

That is if you’ve got grease you need to be removed. I envision them sucking out oily grease from restaurant kitchens?

I would have happily added their link to this post. I was behind the truck at the stop sign and snapped a fast pic of the unusual truck.

Definitely looked like an oil truck. The musical Grease kept coming up in my search.
