Celebrate Me!

I'm pretty good, How are You? 

Sally Russick of Focus on Life set us a task for this week:"Celebrate You."  We were to document a moment of our lives, to celebrate it. Well, I always have to give things my own twist, so I documented the moments leading to and leading from my work day (which I am not allowed to document.)

Let's go for a walk. 

Here we go.

Did I forget to brush my hair? 

Arriving at work
Leaving for home!! Weekend!

What parts of their lives have the others chosen to celebrate?

Focus on Life: Let's Celebrate - Celebrate Sweetness!

Some Random Sweetness From My Day!

This week's Focus on Life prompt asks us to show some sweetness. I had already decided: NO MORE FOOD! So, I just kept my eye out for the sweetness around me. Here's what I found.

Sweet kitty Merry

Bebop says sweetly, "You gonna give me the cookie, or what?"

Wild Roses, so sweet!

Random yellow flower, pretty sweet. 

Let's see what others did with Sally Russick's  prompt.

Let's Celebrate! Celebrate the Season.

More Food. Summer's bounty!

Can you handle another week of food pics? This is the way I celebrate the season. Sally Russick sent us another celebration prompt for this week's inspiration. I found a way to get even fresher produce than the Farmer's Market ...because this is the farm where they are grown, and it's right down the road from where I work. 

Garlic scapes, shell peas, and green beans. and a peek at the lettuce

My friend Lynn and her daughter Tyler help out every Tuesday

Had to sneak in a picture of the summer bounty I have produced with the help of Heather Powers of Humble beads. I am taking her Art of Color Polymer Clay Bootcamp Class.

What other summer celebrations have we found?

Focus on Life: Let's Celebrate! - Celebrations

What to give a friend who has turned 50?

That is the dilemma we had at work several times this year. We came up with a breakfast - and it happened twice. First, L gave a breakfast for K's birthday, and then K organized one for L when she turned 50. 

We coworkers each brought something, and I had seen these "fruit cakes" on the internet. They really aren't all that hard to do, and look and taste wonderful. 

The pictures of my offerings seemed perfect for this week's Focus on Life "Celebrate!" prompt, kicking off our monthly theme: "Let's Celebrate." I might even make one of these for my family later in the holiday weekend - right now I am preparing for an arts show.  

For K's birthday. My first try!
Really love the blackberries.

My second try, for L. I got fancy and made a filling. 

Thanks to the Internet, and aspic cutters, I made quite an impression.  I liked playing with framing and background colors of the images in PicMonkey too. 

Let's see if anyone else has come up with a tasty celebration image.
