Pinhole shots

It took me too long but I finally got my film from Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day processed and scanned.

Aaron taking a picture of me taking a picture of him.

View from the sidewalk.

A couple shots from Pittsford Farm Dairy.

Only five shots from the roll came out but I was pretty happy I got anything at all!

Cherry popsicles

I finally got around to pitting the cherries we picked. Cherry Chomper is cute but the four-at-a-time pitter got through all those cherries a lot faster.

I used our Vitamix and our Zoku to make cherry popsicles.

In less than ten minutes... cherry posicles! All cherry, no sugar needed.

I had a little extra cherry puree leftover so it was a good chance to use my frozen ring pop molds.

Cute and yummy!

Vitamix arrives

After many months of reading reviews and looking at different models we got a Vitamix!

I thought, how different can a blender be? Hoo boy can it. This puppy sounds like a jet engine. My old blender would start to smell like burning metal when I tried to crush ice. I was contantly scraping down the sides trying to get it to chop everything in the container. The Vitamix did a great job making these smoothies with frozen bananas, cherries and ice. Easy peasy. I'm looking forward to trying more recipes in the cookbook.

This is how to enjoy a hammock in the morning.

Here is how to enjoy a hammock in the afternoon.

Smells of summer

It has felt more like fall than summer these past days. There are a couple of things that remind me of the beach and summertime. Hawaiian Tropic smells like the beach and so does this candle.

Sewing afternoon

I have discovered that there are practically no short sleeved, button up shirts for women. So I got a long sleeved one at Target and made it short sleeved myself. While I had the sewing machine out I worked on some other projects...

... like this room divider curtain.

It was so big I had to sew on the floor. This brought the critics around. Look at his face... "This is crooked. Move over and let me do it. Shameful."

This project didn't require any sewing. I made one of Aaron's shirt into a beach cover-up.

I found an excellent use for the sleeves I trimmed off. Nailed it.

Quickie craft - cable holder

This is my first and favorite Starbucks card. I kept it because I like the scooter in it. Today I found an alternative use for it as an iPhone charger cable holder.
