This week, Sue (The Nature of Things), our guest host, invites us to share our Pastimes. As Sue said, “With so much time being spent at home, many of us have been looking for new pastimes or taking up old ones in order stay occupied or even sane.”
One day last week, I decided to take some photos at home. So, I pulled some spices out of my pantry and started making some arrangements. I thought it’d be a 30-minute task, it went on for two days before finishing photographing. 🙂
This Moroccan Chicken dish takes 10 different spices to make including saffron.
Learn new photo editing techniques is always fun. For this one, I played with the twirl through Photoshop, then merged it with the original photo. It was a different process and the result was a surprise.
Here is another twirl version merging with a seascape image:
We have been getting more rain this spring than the previous couple of years. Last week, our neighbor helped us haul and spread 12 bags of mulch in our flower beds. I’m so very grateful for his thoughtfulness.
I finished reading the Kindle edition of the “Educated: A Memoir” by Tara Westover.
Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, TaraWestover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. She made to Harvard and to Cambridge University, and earned a PhD from Cambridge University. Some parts of the first half of the book were difficult for me to read on. The journey of Tara’s inner growing had been a long struggle. At the end of her memoir, Tara says, “You could call this selfhood many things. Transformation. Metamorphosis. Falsity. Betrayal. I call it an education.”
For this theme, Sue suggests, “It could be something that you are trying for the first time or a hobby or interest that you have enjoyed for many years.” Click here to visit Sue’s pastimes. We are looking forward to seeing your interpretation.
