Ah, Thanksgiving.  

This is a pastel chalk on chalkboard that I did several years ago. I should repair the smearing before I put it away for another year.

Cross, lost and found

Oh my gosh, I have been looking for this necklace for two days. I lost sleep trying to imagine where it could be. I don't remember who gave it to me although I think it was my Aunt Marge. She was so sweet and would often send little trinkets. Needless to say it was not with any of my usual jewelry boxes (BTW, I need to consolidate these). I found it in a small, heart-shaped trinket box that was my mom's. I will definitely need a nap today.  

I wish this was a better photo but in my excitement,  I put it on and it's not easy to focus from this direction.

Another leaf, a bit faded, posed on a golden plate.

One more leaf-on-my-car photo. Still working out the sync between Lightroom Classic on my laptop and Lightroom mobile and cloud storage. I believe everything is working as it should now, with a few adjustments in my work flow.

Cloudy weather here, typical for mid-Nov I suppose. I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week.

Watercolor Work


My watercolor landscapes aren't any better than my photography landscapes but this effort (after Edward Wesson) didn't end up in the trash at least. (Note: the first two attempts did get thrown away and I scolded myself for even trying a landscape)

Out of Sync

My desktop is pretty much useless, at least for editing photos. Getting my laptop synced has been frustratingly tedious. Between the two computers I managed to salvage one photo of autumn on top of my car.

I baked two loaves of italian bread this morning. First, the aroma in here is fantastic and the taste is so very good. (If I do say so myself)

P.S. I think my desktop computer is in its death throes. Everything is backed up so I'm sad but not frantic. I doubt I'll replace it, which for me is a huge deal. But I honestly don't use it that often.

The Blue

Out running errands

Appreciated the blue

Decided to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies today and I'm happy to report that they are worth all of the cleanup.

Autumn Days

These are the days that I love. Cool mornings, warm afternoons, and sunshine. 

And now we are in November.
