I could go on and on with my passion for the powerful impact of traditions, but that wasn’t at all what my post was going to be about…believe it or not.
Can you tell that I haven’t figured out how to think succinctly about a post, type it, edit it etc. etc.
People ask how I have time to blog…I chuckle…well, since I have just started, I just type as I think…off the top of my head.
That could definitely get me into trouble sometime in the future.
I have written a lot in the past.
I know that I am breaking all the writing rules. I even teach a writing class, but definitely will not let my students read my writing on this blog…hee hee.
That is for another venue.
I will try and get better…better blogger, better. 🙂
Tangent coming back around…..my hubby came home last night at 11:00 pm, and informed me that he had invited Jimmy (my nephew) for breakfast at 6:30 to say good bye.
My husband assured me that he knew it would be fine with me. It was…kind of….breakfast definitely, the 6:30 thing….well……
6:30 was a little early for him as well, but we had a wonderful time.
He is an amazing young man, and we will see dynamic things from him in the future.
It’s kind of like a coffee cake, but you invert it onto a plate and it looks beautiful every time. The problem with this is that because I am a new blogger, and do think “next blog, ” quite often, I haven’t quite arrived yet.
I forgot to take a picture of my beautiful presentation until after it was all gone.
You see, before a month ago, I would have never thought to take pictures of the food that I bake. Now, I realize that a beautiful picture with a recipe is eye candy to many.
SUCH A BUMMER because it’s a GREAT RECIPE!
And here’s my other problem as a blogger….my camera.
I tried and tried to make the picture into a work of art, but you know what I realized –
It’s just not possible to deliver any enticing eye candy with this $89 digital, but it’s OK….because it makes me that much more appreciative for what my husband just ordered…..
I will be able to take a picture and you will gaze at it because it’s beautiful…hee hee.
So here is my attempt to show you, and I didn’t even have to move anything around because this is how it looked for breakfast – minus the full table of people not happy to be up at 6:30, of course.
I tried it without the flash, but it’s much too dark…did I say it was 6:30?
You can see my cool Mikasa dishes that I got at the yard sale. I already told you about them in another post. Now you can see the cantelope and candle.
Here’s a little bit of the apple thingy that was left. I will have to make it again, take a picture and post the recipe. I have seen lots of popular blogs do that…food is the whole post.
Did you know that?
I finally got sick of no flash and turned it on, but wow….now I see why photography people say to not do the flash close up. 🙂 All you see are the few left over apples that my daughter picked out
And that is why the post’s title was “A Little of this and a little of that.” There was no rhyme or reason to this. Should have made this into three posts….my nephew’s Bar Mitzvah and explained it but I am not in a mood to be reflective and I SO would have to, my camera announcement could have been another, and my recipe with food could have been another. See, I am learning….just stick with me. It’s only been one month.
