Other people go thru all their most amazing photos that they have ever taken and post them but I decided to just randomly take a photo on that day....with my phone....and make it black and white.
I'm allowed to provide explanations with the photos on this blog because I said. I didn't on Facebook and that was a challenge. I also posted these on Instagram and I put hashtags with them which was sort of cheating because it sort of explained. Oh well. I didn't get in trouble or get reported. Because really...no one cared....and it didn't matter.
Let's get this started....
I drew these buck heads...along with a bunch of different designs....to make tracings for royal icing transfers for a cookie class that I was going to start teaching. I thought the students could make all these tracings with royal icing and then we would flood cookies and place the transfer on top. It all backfired when I realized that the tracings wouldn't be dried in two hours....they take a long time to dry....and my students would probably have to stay the night. So I scrapped that idea and went with something else. And I made some chocolate buck heads for a birthday cake for a guy that is visiting Canada and it's his birthday. I put maple leafs on the cake too. And decorated it like it was a birch tree.
These are some of my girls. My friends. My hens. They give me eggs.
Pies! Double crust lemon and pumpkin. I made some for the bake sale at the church.
Cows. In the field. I was on my way home from volunteering at the school and I remembered that I had to take a photo for the day. So I stopped and went to take a photo of the cows and then I saw this old pepsi bottle stuck upside down on the post. I was like....what? How did that get there? I just took the photo and posted it.
Making soup this day. I had roasted a meatbird the night before. It was creamy noodle chicken carrot potato butternut squash soup....basically empty the fridge of all leftovers soup.
We were digging the last of the potatoes on this day. Pails and then bags of them.....all put away for the winter.
Also....the boys were unsure whether I would really allow a Christmas house party. They said that a friend of theirs had an episode where their mother....Irene....told them that if they got the old oil tank out of the basement that she would make them six pies. They quickly got that oil tank out....the very same day and the pies never happened. Terry asked me if I was going to pull an Irene? I just said....wait and see....but get that piano over here! And they did.
