Good soup, hot tea and knitting weather. Not good if you have to be out on the road.
Reblogged from July 2012 there used to be weekly word challenges. If you’ve followed me for a time you may remember these images.
I enjoyed participating, coming up with photos to match the word of the week.
What I discovered is I shoot a lot of red.
I blurred my eyes to spot purple in the archives.
Yes, I made the rainbow jello to photograph. It took 5 hours. I got the recipe from my daughter Laura who found it on the web here
The one pictured is not spiked and no one ate it either. It is still in my freezer to slice and photograph with light coming through the jello like stained glass.
Purple views, white balance setting askew but it works for the challenge.
A compendium of purple.
and the cake is by Aubrey’s Bakery in Steubenville Ohio for Justin and Vicky’s wedding
Right next door to the Rabbit Art installation. The lights and colors caught my eye.
When Steve came home from work we drove down to 8th and Penn Avenue to see the fifty-foot inflatable rabbit, part of the Intrude Installation . It wasn’t there!
We found the three smaller Rabbits on 7th Avenue. A person protecting the display was able to tell me why the fifty-foot rabbit wasn’t to be found. I discovered they check the wind and so the fifty- foot rabbit had been deflated to keep it safe.
Here are the rabbits I did see. by Australian Artist Amanda Parer
Not much accumulation but it’s supposed to be 8 degrees in the morning.
When I got to Laura’s house there were three packages of Lebkuchen by the guest bed. My daughter knows me well. These are from Germany.
Unfortunately, Oscar the dog got one package and ate some (no ill effects even though he got a chocolate covered one)
but he didn’t get my favorite kind.
I just opened it tonight. One a day for six days and then will have to wait until next Christmas
Lots of Lebkuchen links below
