Photo Friday – Berries (and other good things)

Berries are here! Let’s celebrate. I’m thinking berries with cream, whip cream, on shortcake, in salads, in kuchen, in drinks, in. . . EVERYTHING! 🙂 I love that our garden is starting to show the berries of our labor. 😉 To be honest, berries are not hard to grow. The labor comes with the picking. Or the eating instead of picking. And now that the weekend is here I’m going to fill little buckets with sweet/tart deliciousness, take time to smell the flowers, and look at the (not sure if they’re poisonous) mushrooms. Which means I’m assuming they are poisonous. So I will just enjoy them through pictures. Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

Photo Friday – Farm Fresh

Seeing Ben’s beautiful photos inspired me to get back on the wagon with photo fridays. And what better way than to capture the first delivery of summer produce from our local farmers’ co-op. With our cool, rainy season so far, most of the bag was filled with greens, but the items that caught my attention were the beautiful pops of red, pink, and purple mixed in. So this is really an ode to redish edibles. Redibles. 🙂

Photo Friday – Rain

Right now I’m sitting in a sunny room drinking breakfast tea. The idea of clouds seems so distant. However, this entire week has been filled with them. Covered by them. Fluffy and white. Fluffy and grey and pink. Thin and silvery. I know they have scientific names. And perhaps I could even remember a few of them. But the beauty of clouds is that they can take whatever shape you imagine. Whatever adjective you decide to use for them. And not only are they full of imaginative possibilities they also come full of lightning, thunder, and rain. The beautiful sky splitting purple lightning that was impossible to catch with my point and shoot. The booming rumbles of thunder off in the distance. And the heavy drops of rain that soaked my hair and feet. With all those beautiful sensual experiences my camera felt so inadequate. However, I still tried to capture a bit of it. 🙂

Photo Friday – Down with the Sick

Yes, despite all my attempts to avoid it, the sick found me. So these last two weeks have found me lying on the bed, lying on the couch, lying on the floor. Basically lying down whenever and wherever I can. I’ve gone through four boxes of kleenex (sadly, not a personal record), dozens of cough drops, a doctors visit, a prescription, two boxes of throat coat tea, and a rather large queue of bad afternoon television. But fortunately I’m on the mend and all I can think about is eating cake. And writing. I’ve missed working on book 2 and I am now full of crazy, fever induced ideas that still seem awesome, even in the light of health. So upwards and onwards. And pass the cough drops.

Photo Friday – Indoors

This week began with lots of melting, leaving behind only odd patches of snow here and there. And of course that means sun. 🙂 However, I’ve been enjoying that sun through my windows because I’ve been indoors writing. Having finished quite a bit of the research for book 2, I got to sit down and start on my favorite part, the first draft. So exciting. Other than writing the week was filled with cooking (I even found an onion with a heart), cuddly dogs, a more intimate study of our room, and of course with valentines day stopping by there may have been some chocolate involved. 🙂
