When I find myself in need of focus, I bring out my kitchen timer. I am amazed at what can be done in 20 minutes!
I wonder how birds decide which order to fly in?
“Lucky” has been a friend for so long now he seems real. He is well loved and has traveled extensively. He will be 22 years old tomorrow. Happy Birthday Lucky!
Sometimes a bench is more than a bench because of who is using it! This one was spotted while I was visiting Hemingway Home in Key West where cats are king!
A very special wedding present from 2 very special friends- “Father Sky Mother Earth.”
Judging by the number of articles I have collected over the years offering suggestions on how to dye eggs for Easter this is something I have wanted to do for a long time and just never did it- so in keeping with my attempt to celebrate the day, I finally dyed eggs- before Easter!
As I noted before, when I have an idea often it requires the assistance of a family member to see it through with me. This time my daughter was my “helper” but actually is the one who kept track of how to do each type.
Sounds complicated – we were just dyeing eggs, right? How difficult does this have to be?
I mentioned I have been accumulating articles about egg dyeing over years. Who knew there were so many options?
We chose to dye 8 eggs. We could have dyed 12 but you never know when you may want to bake something so kept 4 available for that!
This is what we decided to do with the 8 eggs:
- Use natural dyes: turmeric, coffee, beets, and purple cabbage
- Use an unnatural dye: Grape kool-aid
- Use good old fashioned food dye with a twist (see photos below!)
The first thing that came to mind when I looked at this week’s photo challenge on the daily post- Dense– was chocolate. I associated the word dense with a recipe I saved years ago. Now I had a great reason to actually make it! The cake was baked in ramekins so the math formula seemed appropriate! Dense, moist and, yes, perfect as headlined on the recipe!
Green thread used in past projects and on hand for the next!
