A Photo a Week Challenge – Fire

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge

Every week I work with fire as we bake our bread for the inn and the Farmers’ Market in an outdoor bake oven. There’s also an old fireplace in the tearoom that we light when the weather is particularly cold. I couldn’t resist including the fire from my daughter’s birthday cake. I love how it illuminates our granddaughter’s face.IMG-4062

A Photo a Week Challenge – Sunshine

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

It seems like we haven’t seen too much sunshine as of late but between blizzards last Wednesday the sun did come out for a brief spell.IMG-1858

Kammie’s Odd Ball Challenge – March 21, 2019

An oddly strange street performer in London, England.


Pylons to keep people from walking on the wet cement. It didn’t work. I saw one woman walk right through it and went up to her ankle in cement.

Pans for the focaccia, oiled and ready for the dough.
