For the Weekend

(sorry only the text portion of this post remains; photographs have been removed)
A few posts ago, I shared a photo of a novel I was reading, Resistance. It was excellent! and I highly recommend it — actually anything by Anita Shreve is well worth reading.

Currently my bookmark is resting between the pages of the novel, The Dogs of Babel. The first chapter went along quite easily so, so-far-so-good (UPDATE on The Dogs of Babel: I gave the book away after reading a few more pages. I definitely did not like where it was going and disgustedly set about to give it away while I was in Edmonton.)

As you can see, I’ve already baked a couple batches of old fashioned, buttery shortbread. Melt in your mouth goodness!

I leave for Edmonton shortly and before turning the computer off and getting my packing done, I thought I’d post a few more photos until I return on Monday. Despite the treacherous highway conditions, I am really looking forward to taking my son and his wife out for a really nice dinner over the weekend. We’ll be celebrating both his and her birthdays. I hope your weekend is safe and full of joy — enjoy the treasures of the season. What are you looking forward to this weekend?

I just love the inspiration you stir in me! I am brand new to my Nikon 5000 but I love what you capture in your photographs.

Can’t wait to see more.

A fine job of selective focus to give the emphasis where you desire it. I hope you have a great break with your family. And wish them a happy birthday from someone they dont’ know! 🙂 We’re planning a Christmas breakfast of French toast and ham at my daughter’s house. All the best.
