Words of Hope and Love

A very good friend of mine who lives alone has started a project that involves all her friends. She recently asked us to all create ornaments with words of inspiration written on them that she could hang on her white Christmas tree. She still has the white lights on it and she thought it was the perfect back drop for her tree of Hope and Peace and Love.

Her original idea was to cover it with ornaments in the shape of moons, suns and stars. We were all given carte blanche and the only caveat was that they not be too big and that there were  personal messages written on them to send out to the world.

My whole family is getting involved but I think I’m the first to complete the task. I decided to show you my work in the form of a video with music in the background. I learned something new today as I have never done anything like this. Now I’m hoping I’m able to send it out to you.

2020 Photo Challenge – #13 – Texture

thanks to Jude for hosting the 2020 Photo Challenge

This month’s final assignment – Get close to your subject and capture just the texture itself, without the context. Then Zoom out so that you capture both the context of the texture as well as the texture itself.

Bread is my Enemy

….I love it but it doesn’t love me back

My husband and I have been busy cooking and baking and one of the things we’ve made and eaten together is bread. We baked the last loaf today. I haven’t sampled it yet but my husband had some with his tea about an hour ago. I’ve already gained two pounds plus and if this social isolation goes on much longer I’ll gain back all the weight that I lost last year.8714424-B-11-CC-4885-8-CC2-418-FA1-C91-F2-E
