Back to "Art?"

I played again ALL morning! Didn't make my bed, comb my hair, or wash breakfast dishes. I saw an art sketch that my friend Meg posted, using some of her skillions of beach glass pieces. She is a beach glass jewelry artist and in 2010 I gave her my big jug of pieces I found in SC. She has created several items of jewelry for me through the years and we remain internet friends.

Here are the recent sketches she has posted.
Below you will see my works. Remember, I only use the FREE applications I find on the internet, along with my Preview and iPhoto apps that came on my laptop.
I finished off the day with a snow monster picture, using my open driveway photo.

Sweet Spring Special

Last year in June we went to the produce market three times just to buy freshly picked strawberries. We were "strawberried out" so I froze a few quarts. I also froze 4 pound cakes that I found on sale due to the season being almost over.  

This was then:  June 20 (NINE months ago!)
Fresh picked from the field
Washed and hulled
Frozen first separated, then bagged
This was today's lunch dessert:

Stella continued - March 17, 2017

All across our region, folks felt the wrath of the blizzard...but few were hit harder than Susquehanna County. We live here and people in all of our area had a hard and long time with snow throwing!
These nearby neighbors had to have someone come to open up the path to their garage with a tractor and bucket loader. Their truck and plow couldn't make the path to the garage and later found their Honda Element named "Toaster," which was left out during the blizzard, got frosted just like a pop tart.

My Mister corrected me in calling the snow thrower a snowblower! Now I know. BUT...it blows and throws. 

He had me call the township road department this morning to have someone come and break through a four foot opening at the road edge so our snow THROWER can make the path to the propane tank and to the burn pile area. We understand how it was plugged in, but it was grass and sod and too large and hard for us to manage.  They came almost as soon as I hung up and the opening is made. I mentioned to the driver how hard it was for the plowman to see the road during the blizzard and forgive him for the mess. He laughed and said it was he who plowed! Now the Mister has to make the paths. Tomorrow... 
Video is only 34 seconds long.

After Stella 2nd Day

OK, the camera and I and the Mister are all worn out and cold! There is still more snow to go!

Some day I may get a video camera, well...maybe!
