Botanical Blast…

Have you ever just passed by something in your home town and given it no mind, until one day, you just do? That’s what happened yesterday. A botanical greenhouse that has always been in the middle of Tacomas Wright Park, I have passed by a million times, just happened to be open and this time I went in! 

A lovely little tropical oasis that housed some fun plant species and a koi pond, where they let you feed the fish occasionally. And, currently decorated here and there for some fun photos for fall and Halloween.

It was a lovely, quick, little, colorful escape from the grey day and glad I finally made the trip in!

Butterfly Crowns and Crocodile Tears…🐊

Isn’t he a beauty with a butterfly crown? I just learned this Is process called Lechryphagy in which certain insects like #butterflies drink #crocodile tears for salts and proteins. And, some serious “side-eye”. Isn’t inspiration from nature amazing? I find it seriously fascinating….

……………………………………………………..

I can’t stop thinking in that crocodiles head they are thinking “I’m a very delicate flower”. Haha. . .

Cookbook Mania and Food ArtπŸŽ¨πŸ“š

Alright, the real reason I have my colored pencils out…a food illustration class at Skillshare.

And, of course I need inspiration from a few amazing cookbooks. So, cookbook crazy…

And, it’s making me hungry and thirsty. Luckily, I’m dedicated to getting back in shape (day 4 this week at the gym. So yumminess will have to wait! For now!) Favorite sexy food? Favorite sexy cookbooks? Tell me everything…πŸπŸŽπŸ‹πŸŠ

A Fantastic Slippery Slope…

Have you ever had that moment you have to choose up or down? I literally had to choose up or down today. I took my rambunctious son to the local county fair, in my old home town. Just he and I, and I didn’t know I would be doing such choosing but, there I was on the narrow stairs stuck with a flood of little people coming at me. It was go up or fight the flood down. I choose up…

So, the climb started because my kiddo lost his blanket a quarter of the way down for the tall slide. There was no one at the top to help him and I started to think he was going to be stuck. He was panicking a bit.  So, before think how stuck I would be I started up. With no blanket. 

In me middle of the climb, he rushed by me and was coming down the slide. Ha. Luckily, his little friend was coming back up and somehow I convinced her to take me down with her double. Cotton candy, lemonade and purse in tow. I forgot how fun…

Happy Memorial Day Weekend…

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ There’s not much huge commentary needed today, other then the fact that we are grateful and thankful for our freedom and the men, women and animals that have helped and are helping to provide that for us. Safe travels and may our freedoms for all continue in this important, potentially changing time for us all…
