…time to look for indoor macro shots
Macro shots of painting supplies and paint from my art studio.
…back in August I promised to post photos of the birds in the birdbath
On the weekend I decided that I needed to put the birdbath away for the winter. To be honest with you since I put it into my garden I hadn’t seen one bird use the thing. Well at least I hadn’t observed any action over there. I wondered if it was too close to where we sat.
Looking out the back door on Saturday I noticed that a bird landed on the edge of the bath. I quickly picked up my phone and gingerly made my way to the patio table. The bird took no notice of me but I didn’t want to chance it and scare him off so I stayed back and used my zoom feature on the phone. They’re not the best shots but I was pleased that the birdbath was a hit with this little fellow.
….thank goodness for the beautiful weather we’ve had in November
The last two days have been more normal in terms of November weather but prior to this we’ve had the most glorious, warm and sunny days. Our eldest daughter celebrates her birthday in November so we were thankful that we were able to get together with the family and have a small celebration on the deck in the backyard.
Blowing out the candles has also taken on a new format. I lit the candles on the cake and then we removed them one at a time and my daughter blew them out individually away from the cake. Well that was the plan but it turned out that the candles had burned down too far so she tried to put the candles out by waving her hand over them.
That didn’t work very well so she tried to extinguish the candles by snuffing them out with popcorn. That worked somewhat but the popcorn caught fire.
In the end no one was harmed and the cake was delicious.

My morning ritual changes depending on the time of year and where I am. The one constant, though, is my morning coffee.
…well more like a lot but I managed to sleep through it
When I woke this morning I could tell it had rained overnight but I had no idea how strong the wind was untilI took a look out my back sliding door. I’ve had this umbrella up all summer through all kinds of rain and wind and it held up well until last night…..

Comfort foods during COVID-19 have caused me to gain at least six pounds. Despite walking an average 13 000 steps a day comfort foods which are high in carbs are my downfall.
My husband, when he’s feeling okay, has found a renewed love of cooking. I don’t complain and I enjoy what he prepares immensely. The best meals are the ones we work on together. Here are some of my favourite comfort foods that we’ve enjoyed over the last 10 weeks.
