Jail Bird...

 A bright start to the day.


 We had a pretty good frost.

 Phoebe and Wonder lasted in the barn for about 40 minutes, then I put them in the back yard
while I finished chores.

 LW looked like he was in jail.

 That morning light was begging me to take some photos when I got back to the house
so I picked up a glad blossom that had dropped off and put it on a white plate.
 I was motivated by one of my blogging friends (Mulewings in my favorite blog sidebar) who was working on simple still life set ups yesterday.  She has a fabulous camera and I was still using my little point and shoot.

 Gary and I went out to the studio to hang our two enormous paintings that we brought home from the show yesterday.  When it gets colder and we have to meet in the house, I am going to miss this space.  Tomorrow it should be ok as we will be in the 60s.

 I had to go to the bank and took the dogs with me.  They always love to go for a ride.

 After we got home I did some computer work and Little Wonder was in his usual spot.
 I started on dinner late afternoon.
A cauliflower casserole.
First I threw the cauliflower, a couple of onions and three carrots into a pot of water.
 In the meantime I boiled some eggs.
 When fork tender, I put the veggies in a glass container and made a couple cups of stock by adding organic chicken paste to remaining liquid.
 Then I made a cheese sauce using salt, butter, flour and stock.  When it thickened I added the cheese.
 Poured it on top of the veggies and baked at 350 until in bubbled.
 I chopped up three of the eggs and added them for the last 5 minutes.
(The dogs split the last egg for dinner).
 The salad was mixed greens with apples/craisins and walnuts.
 Topped everything off with some of Carina's Challah bread.  
So good.
 That's all she wrote.
Night all.


  1. Sounds and looks like a pretty good day all round.

  2. Pretty skies. Like the glad in the dish. Hope it stays warmer for a while longer. LW looks very cute in jail.

  3. LOL, love your still life shots! Now the challenge is to see if I can use my pink ugly old point and shoot to do some still life!
    I loved the glad shots, nice contrast with the white plate and the shadows.

  4. You are innocent til proven guilty. We are going shopping for you
