I discovered that new beater on IG..It's amazing..
It's from Side Swipe..no more scraping the bowl of my KA:)
I use my 30 plus yr old workhouse soooo much.
This was like the best youth serum.
Those cookies were found at Lynn Krizic's blog.
I found Lynn on IG..
And lately..truly..all I have been painting are people from GeeParee22's feed on IG too..
She posts gorgeous Paris pics on her feed but a lot of her stories..are people from Paris..Rouen..Provence..Normandy..
On IG I started adding little stories about everyone I paint..Kathy from Colorado who is also on IG suggested it..so I did:)
So many people influence us don't they?
And we get close..
And grow fond of..
So me? How am I..again I realize how fragile life is..
On IG I wrote about someone..everyone cared about..
You may have seen her comment here..and I at her online home..
We start blogs..make friends ..join IG..dear friends follow.
In this whole big wide wide world we make connections that are dear.
Through visiting each other’s blogs and commenting..keeping up with IG we get to know the heart and soul of people.
For years I have been friends with @lindakeaveney
We visited each others online homes..always..we got to know our children’s names..our grandchildren’s..the flowers we liked the passions we shared.
She was one of a kind .
For the last two years this loving mom..wife..grandmother..friend suffered terribly.Yet she kept in touch and even kept a sense of humor.
She fed the world with kindness and the birds with care.
She loved her beaches..Florida and Keaveney Court.
All this past year during Covid.
What an incredible strength she had.
I hope To have gleaned so much from her example.
We will all miss everything about her.
I lucked out being her friend as many of us did.
Bon repos Linda ~
She fought..with strength and courage..during Covid..can you even imagine..not being able to see your family as much as you want..on top of all this?We have all been compalining about it..she was a hero.
I'd like you to know her...she was a special family girl.

To be offered great tools from companies.
I was recently sent a Nakiri knife from Tuo Cutlery and I could not have been more excited:)
That's me and kitchen things:)
Gleaming:) I really like gleaming..and SHARP and beautiful handles.
Knives such as these make you feel like a chef:)
I had made Ricardo's pickled eggs and beets..it's the color..I had beets and eggs etc..
I had Mandy's Salads crispy ramens..
And I made Thai crispy rice noodles.. so easy..
I first had these in a resto w/ my daughter.. they came garnishing spring rolls and sauce.
And I use a smidge of oil.
KEEP AN EYE ..as soon as they blow up..remove..and put on paper towel.
I have 2 Tuo Cutlery knives and ..I asked Jacques to use our others..;););)
I am very grateful..and it's honestly fun to think of a certain focused piece when thinking of what to make.
A Nakiri knife is great for salads.
No sharp point..and you don't rock back and forth..
tuck your fingers in..it's sharp..
And that's what you want.
I mean my garlic..was sliced though like magic.
I love garlic and magic.
Thank you again Tuo Cutlery.
PS My previous post is about how to use the rolling pins if you are interested.

I made that delicious Swedish Tosca cake again..I've made 3 versions..all good..
It's like a sponge you par bake..then you pour/spread..the par cooked almonds on to it and bake again.
It's one of J's absolute favorites.In love with my Fred eggs.In love.
Fingers crossed for March and vaccines and other things.
