Walk...here's a photo of a fruit seller walking his horse and cart down a street in Istanbul. I was surprised to see this out of my bedroom window as I hadn't seen this horse drawn cart except during my travels in Egypt.
Horizontal...here's the big fish my little grandson caught at our local lake. He was so excited that day and in fact he caught two large fish.
Square...a photo of my easy tomato tart using puff pastry. I took a square of puff pastry, added some sliced tomatos, sprinkled with salt and pepper and crumbled goat cheese on top. I baked it in a 400 F degree oven until pastry was puffed and golden. It's a simple dinner or lunch entree.
Diversity...a large selection of spices at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. This was my first time visiting the Grand Bazaar as last year in Istanbul I visted the Spice Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar is grand in all ways. It was a most enjoyable afternoon.
Rough...the imposing rock wall at our property (do you spy the little cat?) It's a huge rock retaining wall that has beautiful bouganvilla plants growing on it.
Bow...My new little granddaughter's outfit with all the bows. She came home in this outfit and was so tiny compared to this dress.
Joy...my little grandson as Spiderman..grandma's joy! We visited with him one afternoon and he quietly disappeared upstairs. He came down wearing this costume. It was 90+ degree outside that day. He loves Spiderman and Transformers.
Forgotten...a doorway from long ago in Turkey.
Crowd...a lovely evening at the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach, CA. We attended this performance for the first time this year and I must say it's probably the most favorite thing I've done in a long time. This is the common area where the music and art show takes place. But, the actual pagent takes place in an outdoor theatre with the audience sitting under the moon and the stars. It was an amazing evening.
Colorless...little feet of my grandchildren at the beach. Last week it was 20+ degrees cooler at the beach. They didn't stay long but just long enough to enjoy the water and cool off.
Friendly...I can't forget Lilly my sweet cat! She is my constant companion. I feel bad for her as she's had to be in the house this week due to the hot temps outside. I guess as long as she's is fed, she is a happy cat.
Whatever...needlepoint is my new obsession. Here's a picture of my current needlepoint project. I hope to make it into a handbag after it's completed. I completed the pastoral scene and need to block it and find a frame. I really enjoy this new hobby but I find I need to work on it during the natural daylight hours since the colors fad into one during the evening.
I'd love to hear from you wherever you are. I hope you have enjoyed this little glimpse into my eclectic life. Lilly sends you all her best wishes for a wonderful week.
