Picture-A-Week 2020 - Week 45


Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, November 2 and Sunday, November 8.

 

 

 

Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

This was the temp. yesterday (70F), it's been like that all week & will last until Wed. Last year at this time our skis were in the shop getting sharpened & waxed and we were on the hills skiing by the last week of Nov.

70F would be a cold front for us.  I'd give a body part to have those temps.  Aside from the tropical storm rains this weekend that dumped 10 inches of rain here, our temps through the week even with clouds and rain have been at 80-82 - and once the clouds clear by the weekend we're forecast for 85.  Add in our lovely 80% humidity, and you get a heat index of right around 100 degrees.  And that's our COOLDOWN - we were upper 90s with heat indexes of 115-120 from April to late October.

 

And unlike other places, our low temps at night don't deviate very much - we might get to 79 at night.

 

BTW - no photos to share - the weekend was a complete rain-out here!

Well, it's over. The long, oft-interrupted cookbook project is done and the finished product actually turned out pretty much as we hoped. Since the book is essentially a photo book with recipes rather than a cook book with photos, the hardest part of the process was arranging meals and timing so a step in the process or final product could be photographed. Deciphering old notes and documenting recipes that existed only as verbal hand-me-downs was another chore, but worth the effort. Many of the older dishes would have disappeared before long since the scarcity of family dinners around the table has changed a lot of eating habits and many of the best of the older recipes were for feeding a crowd. Next is an exercise book to offset the results of trying everything in this one.

 

One for the Books
