Monday’s Musings…

Such a mixed bag this week, I have spent quite a bit of time creating recipes and photographing the results, some wonderful, some not so great; ie my lactose-free, egg-free pannacotta did not set well and pretty much collapsed when taken out of the moulds…still tasted yummy and we ate all of it, but did…

Mondays Musings…

Another busy weekend, Hubby and I took the camera in to get the sensors cleaned before our next trip away, while we were waiting we went and saw the new Lion King movie; loved it. Fabulous and the detail was amazing. If you have not seen it yet, do. Ignore the critics who usually can’t…

Share your world – 7th August 2019

I am running a day late on SYW, mostly as I have been pondering this week’s questions. They are dire indeed. This world at times can be such a crappy place, and some people do such crappy things to other people. And not just crappy, downright evil as well. I try not to dwell on…

Monday’s Musings…

It’s been week 4 since I got sick, but I think I am now finally over most of it, still got this damn cough 😦 Still it did not stop me from having a wonderfully creative weekend. Hubby is home sick so he enjoyed the fruits of my labour in the kitchen, last week was…

Share your world – 9th July 2019

QUESTIONS:   Now I realize that everyone doing SYW doesn’t live on this side of the world and on the other side of the world it’s now winter.   So substitute, if you’d like and if it’s more appropriate, “winter” for summer and answer the questions that way.    Yes here in Australia, it is Winter, I…

It’s not every day you get to meet your hero…

Many, many years ago I picked up a camera, no secret there. At first, I wanted to learn to shoot beautiful landscapes and waterfalls…and I did. But it was never enough. There was something missing. I stumbled across a young artist by the name of Brooke Shaden, her work set my mind on fire, like…
