Gailen Mapes61,972Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-06 11:21:01133427CC G+

Gene Bowker66,115 The   #Alphabetcircles   Gene's Active Photographers on G+ Part Two: First Name D-GMeet 250+ more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names betweenD and G.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4.

They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-03-06 11:27:211365113CC G+

Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play

With the support of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , I’ve decided to offer a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will be next Tuesday, April 29, and the program will run from May 9 through July 5.

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps.  My goal is to be able to offer theprogram to... more »

15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta - Best Pasta Sauce And Super Fast to Make

I discovered this pasta sauce recently and it instantly became a favourite. It is quite simply the most delicious sauce that I have ever tasted. We had it last night when we came back from a day in the city. And Steven has asked for it again tonight. How could I refuse when it lets me off the cooking duties this easily??

15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta

"Creamy, thick, and rich with lots of garlic flavour and a hint of lemon. This is my newest favourite pasta dish. The avocado works wonderfully in this recipe to create a sauce so creamy and thick, you will think there is cream hiding in there.

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted
1/2 lemon, juiced + lemon zest to garnish
1-3 garlic cloves, to taste (I used 3... more »

Thank You Sairam!

Last year I was selected to take part in a Landscape Mentorship which was being offered by a terrific landscape photographer, +Sairam Sundaresan  Today, those of us who took part in that mentorship are thanking him for everything he has done for us. This is what I feel about how I benefited from the mentorship:

"Sairam, I have so much to thank you for. First of all you selected me to be a part of this wonderful mentorship along with a marvellous group of friends. You recognised the vision I had and helped me to see it clearer myself. More important, you taught me to use special tools so that my images expressed my vision as I saw it in my mind. I am still learning, still working to hone and perfect those techniques. I will always remember you with gratitude."

I am resharing this image as Sairam said this was his favourite of my landscapes.... more »

I have a confession to make: 

I Cook. Every Meal. Every Day. From Scratch. And I Love it.

And I have to confess that of all household tasks, cooking is the one I enjoy most. So it turns out that I am in the minority. Please watch this if you have 20 minutes. The last 5 or so are questions from the audience, also interesting, but the meat of the presentation is covered in about 15 minutes.

*"From Scratch" means:  I prepare enough for two days of meals, when it comes to the main meal. My bread is (sourdough) baked in advance and usually frozen. A big (very big) bowl of homemade hummus - now I give it a smoky twist by adding a bit of cumin and smoked paprika as well - does for lunches along with raw sauerkraut (not made myself but made locally and bought in a farmers market stand) and any salad vegetables we have (tomatoes, cucumber etc.). The breakfasts arev... more »

Spring Greens - 92/365

I took another trip around and about on Saturday, with Joni at my heels, this time into the woods themselves. There was plenty of grey lichen on the bark as the woods are fairly dark, but then I came across this bright green patch of delicate frondy bits. I have no idea what they are, but they were the greenest, most spring-like things we came across.

There's Nothing Quite Like a Good Stick to Chew - 91/365

Yesterday Joni and I went for a walk in search of signs of spring for me to photograph. There were bare patches where the snow has melted and we managed to walk around quite a bit of the garden on the grass alone. There has been a lot of storm damage from the winter, most noticeably branches that have fallen down and lots of twigs and debris scattered all over the brown grass that's only just seen the light of day since the fall.  Joni (who has taken her role of photographic assistant seriously) looked for good props for an early spring photograph. This was her favourite and she obligingly modelled it for you all. She put on what she thought was her most attractive stick chewing pose for you all. There were no (other) signs of spring ... not yet.

Enjoy any spring weather you might be having, wherever you are.... more »

Feist was Fabulous in Her Solo Concert - 90/365

Last Monday night we attended the opening concert of Feist's 2014 tour. She played solo, but honestly, she was so excellent that she practically was the band. Her performance started off with quiet acoustic, then simply went from strength to strength. I didn't want it to end and obviously no one in the sold out audience wanted it to either as she had two or three encores. Believe it or not, each was better than the last. My one regret was that she did not sing one of my favourites of hers, which is a song by another of my favourite singer songwriters, Ron Sexsmith. You can see it here: Feist - Secret Heart (Paris)
Thinking of my friend and another musician, +Lynn David Newton who might not have met one of our favourite Canadian singer songwriters.

Spring Muskrat - 89/365

Again at the wetlands, the one creature who seemed quite content was this, which I presume to be a muskrat. You can just see one beady eye. We saw him as we were walking along the path and heard a noise in the water. It's amazing how well camouflaged he was, even against the blue water. If I hadn't been wearing my contact lenses I would not have been able to see him to focus the camera on him. So my perseverance in getting used to them has paid off already. You can see that the ice is still in the middle of the water and it's only at the edges where there is open water. It had frozen very hard this winter and looked like a big open snow covered field. It's lovely to see it begin to look like a wetland habitat again.

I'm not far off being caught up in my project, but will stop for today with apologies for flooding everyone with posting... more »

Still Chaos, But Getting There Slowly - 88/365

My friend Heiko asked how the renovations were getting on and if it was less chaotic. As you can see, it is still pretty chaotic. I am still able to cook meals and bake my bread (as long as I am cleared out of the kitchen along with all evidence of cooking) when the workmen arrive) but it is a bit of a struggle at times. At this stage it felt as if we were living in a cabin in the woods, with bare wood walls and no insulation, no lighting and pretty much a shell. The really trying part will be when I don't have a sink for a period of time lasting, I hope, not much more than a week. 

Here you see the electrician, Dan unravelling yet more wire to poke through holes in preparation for connecting up lighting. Soon after this, when the workmen left, Steven cleared up all the mess and vacuumed the floor. Blue ball games started ands... more »

Heading North - 87/365

There was a time when the flocks of geese flying North in the spring, or South in the fall would blacken the skies. Now we have geese that hang around all year and they fly in much smaller flocks. They fly around and it looks as though they are leaving but they settle down on the tidal areas of the dykelands and manage somehow to eke out an existence through the winter months. Cold doesn't bother them. They breed in much colder climes than these I believe. But in the spring and in the fall they are much noisier and the sound of even quite small flocks winging their way overhead is enough to make you run out to watch as they arrow across the sky above.

Waiting for the Spring Floods to Subside - 86/365

We did manage to get out for a walk around the wetland habitat nearby last Sunday afternoon, in the hopes of catching sight of some spring nest building or other activity. Instead, we found the ice still in the middle of the water, only the shores having open areas. On top of this late melt, there have been heavy rains and the paths and inland woods areas were either flooded or still snow covered. These mallard seemed pretty fed up, in what should have been the floor of the forest at the edges of the wetlands. He seems to be on the water, where she has one foot on the rock, balancing neatly, while the other is tucked under her.

Joni in Paper Camera - 85/365

It's so hard to get out and take any photographs with so much destruction, rebuilding and in the meantime chaos happening around me. The one who seems to b completely unfazed by the work is Joni. Of course she is happy as long as she can find bits of things to chew and play with. Here I just had my phone and my Paper Camera app, so decided to play with it. For my friends on #SketchguruSaturday - the fun curators +paula contreras  +Christina Lihani  +Amanda Wyckoff No, it's not art. But it's different. And experimenting can lead to great things. (I'm not a fan of phone photos usually.)

Joni Looking Almost Grown Up - 84/365

Last Friday Joni had been out for a while and I went to find her. It was a lovely day, sunny but cold. As I came around the corner of the house, I saw her standing in a spot that our old Joni liked, just beside the poplar trees. She looked at me, and as she stood there, she had the look of a grown dog. In fact it could almost have been our old friend. She just stood and looked at me like this for a while and I just enjoyed the moment. She is growing up fast now.

Coffee in Steven's Special Mug - 83/365

We love to drink our coffee in beautiful mugs. This is another hand made one that we bought in Ontario last October. But it was photographed last Thursday, April 3rd, for my friends at Coffee Thursday. The coffee is an Arabica bean, Italian roast, organic and fair trade from Just Us Coffee. Made nice and strong as espresso. Yum!

Love Me, Love My Blue Ball - 82/365

Now I know why Joni loves Steven so much! I have discovered that dogs can see the colour blue, which is why Joni's favourite toys are blue - her blue ball and her blue Wubba, for example. And if you look at Steven's eyes.... well they are very blue! Dogs can see blues and yellows, but not shades of red, or green. Mystery solved. I think she loves him for different reasons too.

Steven was giving Joni a cuddle and I thought I would get another photograph of them, and as they turned around and I pointed the camera, I saw that Joni had her blue ball in her mouth. She loves that blue ball still.

This was taken last Wednesday, April 2nd (yes, taken on the day for the project, I am back on track, just late in posting). I'm catching up. See my postings on my website http://www.elliekennard.ca

Ottawa Valley Barn in the Fall

I have been wanting to share this image ever since I took it, last fall.  I had recently been working on my G+ mentorship for Visionary Landscapes, mentored by +Sairam Sundaresan, part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I was looking for an image that would be special, as a memory of my mentorship and of my trip back to Ontario, very near where I used to live, just before I left Canada to live in Europe, when I was young.

When I saw this scene, I was intrigued by the beautiful round roofed pigeon loft (I think?) side of this old barn. It just stood out next to the lovely autumn foliage. I went back more than once during my brief stay there to try to get the photograph just as I wanted it, but it was overcast or actually pouring with rain. This particular time the elements were there and I got what I wanted. I hope it brings back... more »

Valley Evening Drive - 81/365

On the Monday after the ice storm, the renovation work was in full swing and I had a lot to do and only renovation work to document. So I am harking back to the Saturday night before, on our lovely evening drive through the snowy Annapolis Valley, on our way to the concert in Margaretsville in the Evergreen Theatre (+Evergreen Theatre) . I intentionally blurred the images of the road and landscape as we drove through it, to just give an impression of this journey. The sun was setting in a haze behind the clouds.

The Renovations are Hard on Everyone

As I was photographing the renovation work (mostly destruction at this point) being done, behind some plastic sheeting in the kitchen, Joni crept in and sat at my feet. She gave me a look as if to ask when things would get back to normal. With the ice storm outside on that Sunday she was beginning to feel a little cabin crazy.

Icing on the Bush - 80/365

The ice storm that we had on Sunday, March 30th made walking (and driving) too treacherous for anyone without 4 legs and claws - and even Joni was slipping and sliding around on it. The branches of trees and bushes became encased in a perfect clear layer that enhanced the dark red colour in these ones. It's hard to believe that they will soon be covered in small green buds. Soon, I hope.

Fly By Night - 79/365

Last Saturday night we drove to Margaretsville to a concert at the Evergreen Theatre, which is about 45 minutes drive from us, along the bottom of the valley. As we drove along the road, I was experimenting with different motion effects. Suddenly a flock of birds flew up in front of us.  I liked this the best of all the photographs I took along that road that evening.

Joni Loves Blizzards #2 - 78/365

Last Friday the only pictures I took were of the construction work in the house, which I won't bore you with. So I am treating you to my favourite image of Joni enjoying herself in the blizzard from two days before. This is how she looks most of the time out in a snow storm! She never stops running around like a mad dog!

Coffee Time - 77/365

This was taken last Thursday especially for Coffee Thursday, curated by my friend +Stuart Dyckhoff (among others). Just didn't get to post it then so am posting it today for tomorrow (late and early), if that makes sense.

We love to collect pottery mugs made by artisans and we picked this one up in Ontario. I love the pattern and find that the coffee tastes even better in it. I had to give myself a double expresso in it to have it show properly in the photograph. So I was buzzing for a while that morning. But it was in a very good cause. :D

Joni Loves a Good Blizzard - 76/365

We've had all the wintry weather we want for this year. But Joni hasn't. There is nothing she loves quite as much as a good blizzard. I sent her out the other day, waited patiently by the window, looking out to see when she wanted to come back in. But she didn't. She absolutely loved the cold, adored the snow and raced around with great abandon. What she is going to do when it stops snowing or sleeting or freezing raining? I am sure she thinks she is a husky living at the North Pole. She has only ever known the winter. Fortunately for her there is no sign of spring in sight.

Joni is now 4 months old. The blue ball game is still the favourite and it is getting more and more refined every day as she teaches us the tricks she wants us to do with it and the rules of the game. We are learning.

I Wish For Spring - 75/365

Here is another photograph of one of the tulips I was given, this time for today's Macro Monday sub-theme of Spring. Which is what I wish for. Not what I have. I loved the delicacy of the lines in the petals as well as the soft pinks, cream and green. 

I always love to read the comments made on my photographs, thank you everyone! With the construction work going on in the house my computer time is limited and so I don't get to reply to them all very quickly. Please forgive me and be sure that I will get to them and answer each one!

Male Pileated Woodpecker

My friend Becky told me that the photo I posted the other day was of the female pileated woodpecker as it lacked a moustache. I knew I had taken photographs of both of the birds at the feeder that day, so I went back and found this of the male. This is not such a good composition with all the distractions of background and orange netting in the feeder, but at least you can clearly see what Becky was talking about with this guy's bright moustache! Thanks for making me take another look, +Becky Humphreys

Freezing Rain Warning, Heavy Rainfall Warning - and the Snow! Don't Forget the Snow

I guess only 15cms (6 in) of snow doesn't warrant a warning. When I am depressed by the continuation of winter weather, you know it's gone on too long as my tolerance level is pretty high. But this isn't even normal winter weather. And it means too many cancellations. Those of you enjoying nice spring weather, I hope you truly appreciate it. 'Oh! to be in England now that spring is here!'

Pileated Woodpecker - 74/365

I don't have a long enough lens to get wonderful bird images, but when I had not one, but two pileated woodpeckers around my feeders the other day, I had to get a picture, at least of one of them. Taken through the window, this shows one eyeing the feeder hanging above it. They are the largest woodpecker we have around here and make an impressive noise when they drum on the trees around us. We don't see them very often, but you can always tell when they have found a meal in our trees as they leave huge jagged holes as evidence of where they have been.

You Missed a Bit - 72/365

I guess I don't get out very much, as many of my photos are taken indoors and of my animals! So now those of you who have been following the progress of Joni (of the blue ball fame) will see that she is friends with Rupert. It's always handy to have a buddy who tells you when you haven't cleaned your face properly. Joni gets a bit over enthusiastic at times when playing with Joni, but on the whole it is working out well.

Safe Haven - 71/365

In the midst of extreme building makeovers and with a young puppy on the ground level, it's important for a cat to have a safe haven. The top of the fridge is the best place from which to keep an eye on the proceedings, direct operations, referee games of Blue Ball and pull faces at Joni. So this is where Rupert sits.

Heart of the Matter - 70/365

Yes, I am still here! Yes, I am still taking pictures for my 365 project (most days). But life is getting in the way. I am in the middle of the demolition of my kitchen including some structural work (stuff you find in old houses when you open up walls). It will be followed by rebuilding, in due course. I am not doing the work as you probably guess, but it means that everything is covered in dust and there is rubble everywhere you look. There are still games of blue ball going on, so generally there is lots of fun and excitement. I am documenting the work going on but that is a private project, not to bore everyone on G+.

Steven went out the other night to pick up something we needed and came back with a lovely bunch of tulips. So this was my subject for day 70 and featured in other photographs after then.

Sounds so fun. Shouldn't winter be over soon?

"Sunday, March 23:
As we continue to watch the monster of a system approaching for Wednesday, things continue to look worse and worse.

All winter, models would predict a storm well in advance of the actual time-frame, but we wouldn't know for sure what is happening until the day before the storm hits. That is what makes this storm a scary one to forecast.
Models have consistently agreed on a full-out blizzard from an intense Nor'Easter affecting the Maritimes on Wednesday. This has been the consensus for the past 4 days, which is highly unusual for weather models in the winter. All winter, models fluctuated, disagreed, and flat-out failed at forecasting a storm; but this time all 3 major models are agreeing and they are all painting a horrifying picture for the Maritimes on Wednesday.

Spring Thaw and Flood - 76/365

I have got very behind on posting my photographs due to various factors including illness and major renovations (with huge amounts of building dust everywhere), but I am making a start on catching up. Most days I was able to take photographs, so little by little I will be sharing them here. 

On this day, although it was bitter cold, the ice had begun to melt on previous warmer days and the scene was encouraging. Winter will come to an end! I parked on the side of the road and scrambled down icy banks and through dense woods full of thorny wild rose bushes which tore into my jeans to get this image. I have to say it was better seen from the bridge, but there are huge heavy cables strung in front of the scene, so this was a better photograph.

The Hustle and Bustle of City Night Life - 75/365

I always take my camera with me when I know I am going into the city. Who am I kidding? I take my camera with me whenever and wherever I go, because... you never know what you might see. In the city, at night though, I am fascinated by the lights and the moving traffic and as always I like to play to create effects that will give the feeling of the motion and the excitement you get in that environment.

I remember when, as a little girl, I was sitting on the back seat of the car, leaning against my mother, watching the city lights as we drove through the streets of Montreal at night. When we were on the mountain, the lights below were specially beautiful. Even now, I recall those moments vividly every time I see city lights.

I loved the colours of this one, taken on Sunday night. It really gave me the feeling that I was... more »

Gerber Daisy 3 - 74/365

There was something that really appealed to me about the fuzzy top of this wilting gerber daisy flower. Okay, so I'm almost as obsessive as Joni! (I took more photographs of the daisies on Sunday, but might spare you that for a later date.) This is a macro, but not at the 1:1, as I wanted a bit more depth of field. 

This was for Saturday's posting. I am thinking of my friend +Robin Griggs Wood at this time.

Full Moon Kitchen Window - 73/365

I saw this in my kitchen window last night and thought the reflected lights, the (almost) full moon, the tired looking but bright coloured flowers and the dark blue sky made for a great composition. No story, I just loved it and hope you do too.

Have a great weekend everyone and I hope the weather is being kind to all.

Some 'Up Close and Personal' is too... Up close

It was a wonderful sight! Outdoor free range pigs running around in the snow and foraging in the field. They were as curious as children, not in the least bit shy... as you see. Now you understand the expression 'piggy eyes'. They are pretty small, but the eyelashes are impressive!

Saw these drops on the inner window, just loved the way they looked like asteroids or alien objects flying through the air. With little worlds inside. A departure from my usual, hope you enjoy it.

Joni and the Wubba

We have wonderful, kind and loving friends - Katheryn and Norma - who also love dogs. Katheryn had told me how much her dog loved his 'Wubba'. A week or so ago they turned up to meet Joni with a big bag full of toys and treats for her (and a bunch of flowers for me). They apologized that the toys did not include a Wubba, as they had not managed to find one. It didn't matter to Joni, who knew nothing about it and who loved all the toys in the bag and loved Katheryn and Norma, of course (what puppy wouldn't appreciate friends who turn up with bags of gifts and make a big fuss of you?).

Only a few days later, there was a knock on the door. When I opened it, there was Katheryn, with a brand new Wubba for Joni. It has become one of her most favourite toys. I have been trying to get a photograph of her playing with it, so that they could see what a... more »

Puppy Play at Joni's Blue Ball Play Station - 71/365

Today I discovered that a jet from a spray bottle is a good reminder to Joni to stop doing naughty things. It doesn't hurt her but gets the message across quickly and effectively. I mean such naughty things as jumping up on my chair when I am eating or when I'm trying to use the laptop on the table. As my chair is also her blue ball station, we have come to a compromise where I can sit on it and she can play with her toys, including her blue ball underneath it. There is room for both of us. Here she is just having fun with Steven in between playing the blue ball game.

The Old Fashioned and Predictable is Comforting - 70/365

In the movie "Julie and Julia" one of them makes a comment about the wonderful predictability in cooking. I know just what they mean. I find it very grounding on a day when technology is causing hassles and tech support is no help (or I am tech support), to come into the kitchen. I know for a certainty that mixing flours, water and natural yeasts in the form of my own mature sourdough culture will result in a satisfying fermentation that will eventually come out as wonderful loaf of warm bread. When everything else in the world seems to be going pear shaped, this age old practice is satisfying and calming.

Computer Use Can Be Dangerous - 69/365

This was the scene I saw when I looked up from my desk yesterday. It just seemed so incongruous that I had to grab the camera. Was it dangerous because Steven was chatting with +Cynthia Gibson on Facebook? We know how risky facebook is...  Or was it that he was worried about me launching missiles at him? More likely it was that, because he had got into big trouble from me for not wearing a face guard one day last week.... when he should have. In short, what looked like a smudge of blackwood dust on his cheek (or lipstick, some took it to be) was actual damage that would have been prevented by the use of this device you see in the picture. He went out the next day with strict instructions to purchase one. It could have been so much worse.

But you can take it off sometimes, Steven! I have forgiven you. :D

My posts have gone missing

Edit: Post is now back in place! Thanks to G+ for finding and restoring it.

It's easy to know if a post is missing when you are doing a 365 project. In this case I was looking for a posting. The photograph is there in the album (I did not upload an image without making a posting about it). But the post is missing. #26/365. That is the one I found to be missing. I have not checked others, but I am pretty sure that there will be others.

How do we recover missing posts, I wonder? This was an issue that was around in 2012, which seems to be ongoing.

Through the Diamond Window - 68/365

I had the idea to photograph the garden through the diamond panes in the back door and was interested to see if the angled glass would give fractured results. When Joni appeared under the bird feeder (there is really only one round one and one each of the others) and seemed to be confused as she looked at them this was the picture I got. (I'm a little slow in replying to everyone's lovely comments, please forgive me, especially as I so much appreciate them. I will do it as soon as I can! Thanks all! :-) )

Orange Date Muffins - 67/365

Saturday kitchen tasks:

Bread (sourdough) to be baked - done
Refresh sourdough starter - done
Orange date muffins to make - done
Coconut bacon (new recipe) to make for cblt's - done

Some days are all about replenishing supplies and energies. Some achievements cover both. The orange date muffins are specially for our friend Tony, who is a first class carpenter who is helping us do building and repair work in our house. He loves our coffee (which is very strong, there are few who can cope with it) and I love to see his face light up when I mention these to him. I couldn't let him work hard all day without the prospect of a reward.

I have lots left, so the gang can come over for strong coffee (or tea) and a muffin, if they want.

It's Here! By Popular Demand - an Album Dedicated to Joni

We have so many  #fansofjoni  that it is taking up much of our time in answering fan mail and helping her sign autographed pictures to send out. So here is a feast of Joni pictures for your weekend delight!

Joni and the Beaver

Joni had lost her blue ball. She was feeling pretty miserable as this was her absolute favourite toy and no other ball was the same. The new beaver toy with three satisfying squeakers in it consoled her for a little while. She had been told that she was not allowed to play on the chair. But she was pretty sure she would get away with it by putting on her cutest look and bringing the beaver up to cuddle. The happy ending to the story is that her blue ball was found under the furniture, so life for us all could go back to normal.

Chili Sin Carne - 65/365

Last night's supper. It had such great colours and textures it was a natural to feature for yesterday.

For +Darla Hueske who provided tea today in the most exquisite cups and for +Ursula Klepper who gave us breakfast this morning along with the bees. And for +Swee Oh who wanted to see my supper last night as she was hungry and hadn't eaten. It was my first attempt at making this recipe and it was really delicious. Although I will add more chili the next time. The recipe called for 1-2 tsp and it needs the 2. FMI.

The Animal That Makes me Shudder with Fear

I think it stems from seeing a movie "Eight Below" about some dogs that were left behind in Antarctica. One of the dogs is at the edge of the ice and this huge face full of nasty teeth (accompanied by terrifying music, I'm sure) lunges out of the water at the dog. It was a leopard seal. (I don't remember whether the dog escapes or not.) The fear and shock of that moment has made me for the first time in my life actually dislike an animal. BUT this video has put the voice of reason and some perspective back into my view of leopard seals. It's not long, well worth watching.

I have a confession to make: when Joni starts to get overtired and a bit out of control, like a very tired child, she seems to become a lunging head full of teeth going for shoe laces, jeans or whatever is in reach. At those moments we call her... more »
