V is for Vindication

There. That's more like it.

I Will Not Be Broken

My dear mother bought me a Martha Stewart cookie cookbook. She was hoping to receive some delicious cookies as a result. I have high hopes for making this a reality.

This is a photo of my first attempt. Apricot Windows. Sounds delightful, doesn't it? Directions: spread incredibly expensive ingredients evenly in a 11X17 pan. Bake for a ridiculously long time. Pull them out and top with hard to find, expensive apricot filling. Pipe remaining dough in a lattice pattern on top and return to the oven for even longer. Well by the time they were done with round one in the oven, the bottom cookie was a cracker. Piping the dough on top was impossible. However, I was able express myself in the moment. Please don't miss the expletive written in dough.

I will not be broken by a Martha Stewart cookbook. I will not. I'm on to bigger and better recipes today. Crackle cookies and homemade fig bars. I'll keep you posted.

Camera Club

Camera club. Not to be confused with Camero club. I don't have a camero. But I do have a camera. So I invited a few friends who are interested in photography to take pictures over a period of a few weeks. We all got together for the first time tonight to share what we had done. We had snacks and drank wine and looked at pictures. It was really fun.

The theme was Round and Round. This was what I considered to be my best shot. We are on the calendar for 6 weeks with barns and fences. I can't wait!

Memories

My daughter is making a photo collage. She came by today to look through some old photos to scan. She came across this one of us in Disneyland. We were waiting for the parade to start. It brought back such great memories. I love old pictures.
