I've been enjoying the views of our
Fall foliage in Ohio...
Linking this post to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's
T Tuesday blog hop,
where we share a beverage and a
variety of interests and activities.
This is a lunch in Panama City Beach,
Florida, where I enjoyed a beef pasty,
back in February. The restaurant was called
Eat My Pasty. The food was tasty,
but there were exactly two pieces of
meat in my pasty, along with the
potatoes and carrots. Not exactly plentiful.
I thought the flavor was very good, but the price
for what you received was high. I
suppose we were paying for the novelty
of authentic (?) British food. It IS a tourist
kind of town, especially in March when the
college students arrive for Spring Break.
We were looking for something fun and
different...you don't know until you try it, right?
I think my beverage in this photo was water.
Maybe not exciting, but trying to be healthy.
Our food tray was lined with deli paper
printed to resemble a London newspaper.
I got a kick out of some of the decor in the
tiny restaurant. This Dr. Who quote is classic:
"People assume that Time is a strict progression
of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear,
non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball
of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff."
The "No Muggles Beyond This Point"
was a sign over the door to the kitchen.
Fun!...I wondered how many of the
retired 'crowd' that are in residence during
the month of February
had any idea what these posters referred to...
the Harry Potter series of course!
Not sure if I showed the cover of my
Hobonichi Techo, that I finally finished.
It's painted fabric just wrapped around
the planner, secured with a bit of elastic.
It does the job just fine, without a
big price tag.
Here's a page in my Planner...yes, I drink
coffee from my Santa mug year-round!
I've been doing a challenge this month,
which gives a list of items to draw or
write about each day. #7 was Butternut
squash. The 72 seasons of Japan is an
interesting app that I downloaded to my
Smart phone. Every week or so, a new
season from the ancient calendar of Japan
is explained. I am enjoying the illustrations
included with the articles, and reading
about the flowers, vegetables, and
seasonal fish each season.
Japan is blessed with weather that allows
Camellias to be blooming in November!
The U.S. election is today,
and I will do my duty and go vote. I am
ready for the country to move on.
I hope you have a wonderful week,
and success in your creative endeavors!
