Made Whole

"Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again
Learn to live free"

Over the weekend mom's garden fairy fell off of the table on the back porch because of strong winds. She broke into several pieces.

With a special glue, patience and love we put her back together piece-by-piece, almost as good as new!

So she can fly through the gardens again!

Cooking w/ Red & Connie ~ Sausage Breakfast, stuffing & pear bread

Things to do w/ Sausage and Pears
As part of our Thanksgiving week we made one of my favorite dishes ~ stuffing!! We went to Adams (a local farmers market) and bought some homemade stuffing with their "special ingredients." We made some sausage for breakfast with waffles and then used the rest for our stuffing!
All we did was food process carrots, celery, and an onion. We cooked the sausage in a skillet and then added the veggies! Then, we stirred the veggies, sausage mix in a bowl with a bag of seasoned breadcrumbs and 2 cups chicken stock. Put it in a casserole dish and baked at 375 degrees for 20 minutes! ALL DONE =) Enjoy
We then made some pear bread!!! Followed the same recipe as my Connie's banana bread but added pears that we put in the blender instead of bananas!!! Great recipe. You need to add a little more baking powder to compensate for the liquid concentration of the pear bread! Enjoy!
xoxo Red & Connie

SkyWatch Friday ~ Close Coasts

Blue Skies, Suns & Moons, and Coasts a far!!! Busy Skywatch
Thank goodness for technology!
unfortunately these are all taken with my cell phone!!! But, oh how I love how I can catch awesome skywatch pictures when I don't have my camera on me!!! How great technology is for us
I thought this was really beautiful... the sun looks like a giant white fireball!
another fireball shot, but that tiny white circle is interesting to me at the top middle. Is that the moon?
Since I was taking cell pictures for this skywatch, and I was happy over technology. I figured I'd add this one... I was at my 2nd job at the mall. I teach and then go to Hollister to work a couple nights a week. I was working on Tuesday. As it is a store dedicated to California they have a live feed from Huntington beach. The sunset there was beautiful, and I snapped a quick pic with my cell wishing I was on the other coast =)
Happy SkyWatch. Click below for more great views around the world.

SkyWatch Friday ~ Snowy Mists

Shooting the Sun!
this is the beautiful sky on Saturday November 7th, Red's birthday.
I couldn't resist some pictures. It looked snowy, and misty, and breath taking.

The fuel trail of the plane looks like it's shooting the misty sun.

Such beauty in the afternoon sky.

"If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand."

Happy SkyWatch Friday!
for more views around the world =)

SkyWatch Friday ~ California Dreamin'

...on such a winter's day...
on these chilly late autumn days, I'm reminiscent of the vacation Red and I took this summer to the golden state of warmth and beauty.

"all the leaves are blown
and the sky is gray
I've been for a walk
on a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
if I was in LA
California Dreamin'
on such a winter's day."
