Do you love peanut butter? Jam? I do...look what I found..
When I saw these..here..
I must have been trying to get to sleep..and stayed awake..
I mean..look...at her post..breakfast was but 9 hours away..:)
I have a bad habit..after my 1.5 hours of TV at night..I go to bed..resolute to read..on my mini..
I think I will switch to my Kindle..because the Mini Ipad..has way too many temptations for me..
I end up not reading and planning the next day..a new nib for a pen..a new painting tutorial..an email from one of my girls..
my head just stays busy..
as in the case of the above muffins:)
Give them a try if you like muffins..pb and jam..use your best pb..and jam..I used muffin liners..sprayed..but I would not again..I would just spray the heck out of the mold..I made 5..halved the recipe and it gave me 5..
lovely warm..the next day pop into the micro about 12 seconds.
I have been practicing w/ manual settings..I have only ever shot w/ A or P..never all manual..
well all manual gets my Olympus to to want to play....whereas in automatic ..or the P or A..it would not..always in different light conditions..now it plays with me..
so it's a learning curve..but I love it..
one thing that can be discouraging..is finding out which camera/lens someone you admire has..
and discovering..it's in the THOUSANDS.
Jacques is very supportive of my blog...he says..it's not like you would ever want to sell any anyways..and he is right..
One thing I would like to try though..is getting photos larger like on Wordpress..because try as I might here..it doesn't work..they are HUGE..then on the other computers they are all cropped off..
so I stick to what Blogger lets me do w/out knowing what I am doing..
After the brocante Saturday ..I stopped by such a favorite place of mine..the park at the lake..there is some land art and it is so nice and natural there with the wildflowers..
I spotted the newer Inukshuks right away..I had not been in a little while..
we went more often when the boys were not at camp..
I don't think I went once with Jacques this year..first of all it has been HOT..ter than usual..
and I love to dawdle and take photos..when the leaves will change and it will be cooler ..he'll come walk the trail with me..
there's just something about the water that attracts me like a powerful magnet.
I met a man who was with his binoculars..,camera and monopod in tow..very nice..we started talking and he showed me some of his photos and the practicality of a monopod.Fun to learn..another nice young man was there..you never know who you will meet and who will just help make your day a better day.
I loved seeing the lady reading also..all by herself..so peaceful.
Some people know how to make a day better on their own.
It is a beauty of a spot♥
I repainted this 3 times..this was the first.
The next I painted on Fabriano cold press/rough grain..I am not crazy about it..too grainy..maybe for flowers it would be better..then I tried w/ ink first..on the rough again..not good either..so this is the only one that caught my feeling of the lady reading.lots of stamping going on to detract..
So Sunday..I stayed in..in the last few years I have bought a few watercolor how to books..
I am not experienced enough to give reviews..but I am going to:)
Just in case there are novices like me..who would like either a new book to be inspired by or new paints or paper..
nothing deep..and not many..maybe all in one review;)
Review #1..not Fabriano grano duro block..too many craters..for a day at the park:)For a novice.
