My Bright Spot for the Week

….I thoroughly miss baking at the inn twice a week

It’s been more than a year now that the bakers and I at Montgomery’s Inn have gotten together to make and bake bread. I miss the friendships and the actual physical attributes of making dough and baking bread in a wood burning oven.

My one bright spot of the week is when I can drive to the inn to pick up fresh vegetables, eggs and meat from the Farmers’ Market. For the last two weeks the vendors have been able to set up outside. This week I took time to walk around the Inn and enjoy the views.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Art Unexpected

…thanks to Sandy for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

Some of the best art is the piece that you come across unexpectedly. On my walk last week someone or multiple people had left these painted stones on a rock for all to enjoy.C4-CD0-EBD-D5-C0-4-F19-AB52-7-BF083346-BFC

I also find that when you walk into a setting and new art has been put up that you weren’t expecting it can affect you in one of several ways. This new art display at Montgomery’s Inn gave me instant joy because of its whimsical quality. It clearly affected a lot of people in a similar way because most people pulled out their camera phones and started taking photos of these large ink drawings.25-F5-CEE5-C04-F-4920-A055-54-EEDED3376-F

LPM – Photo Adventure – Still Life

……Thanks to Little Pieces of Me 

for hosting the Photo Adventure.

One of my hobbies, besides photography, is baking bread. Every week I volunteer at a local historic museum called Montgomery’s Inn where I prepare the dough and help bake it in the outdoor oven. After it’s baked it’s sold the same day at the Farmers’ Market which supports local farmers, food producers and bakers all year round.

Here is the focaccia that I baked today.
