I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

PHOTO DIARY: MARCH 10-24, 2017









I'm thinking about going back to doing a daily photo diary.
I miss the challenge of capturing a good photo each day,
and many people tell me they enjoy it.
Besides, I find that it helps sharpen my photography skills,
which still need improving, so......here we are.

You may recall this used to be a monthly feature,
but it feels a bit more manageable to do it bi-weekly.
I don't solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute it every single week, 
but as long as I've got decent photos to share, 
I'll keep it going to the best of my ability.

Minor little snowstorm today.
A red-bellied woodpecker is quite appreciative of the suet feeder on snowy days.

 My first attempt at hamentaschen (pronounced HUM-en-tosh-en), is a success!
 This pastry is traditionally eaten on the Jewish holiday of Purim,  
and the explanation that I grew up with is that its triangular shape 
represents wicked Hamen's three-cornered hat.
Get the recipe for Nutella Hamentaschen by Tory Avery, here.

 Snow day! A foot of snow is enough to keep us all indoors for the day.

Bright blue skies,

Shopping for a dress got me all depressed because I felt fat, 
so I'm having some dulce de leche Fro-Yo to drown my sorrows.

The highlight, and perfect ending to the last two weeks,
is that I got to meet Katie from Let's Add Sprinkles
when she came to New York City for the weekend!
Katie was the first person to follow my blog,
so I am forever grateful to her. 
We gabbed for about an hour, and could have talked all day, I'm sure!
