blue skies and random thoughts

*update* i just got told you can't "See" the song i linked to in bloglines... so after the line that says a hint to where i go.... you have to visit my blog to see/hear the song :) *end of update*

ocean :: flags

the fog came back this morning.... so i dug up these old polaroids from oceanside to remember the sun [which i'm sure will be out this afternoon]

ocean :: lighthouse

i'm so excited to see my drawing student's final projects next week.... they are furiously working away [this is the assignment where they get to come up w/ the entire premise themselves]

and here i am frantically getting ready to escape for a few days. [i am taking grading with me - how sad is that?]... i should have some good tales to tell.... good sightings, good food, i predict smart, funny, charming, women in my future. [one of them being my grandma!]

a hint to where i go:


if you haven't seen radio blog club, where the above came from, check it out! it's super cool. and free! you must just suffer with my future posts peppered with punny songs [yes as in pun]

and the clafoutis recipe is here . it came out really well... i can now imagine berry clafoutis.... with vanilla ice-cream and a berry sauce.... oh heaven. if you like bread pudding you will LOVE it.

ocean :: lights

catch you later [pretend i'm a surfer]

You're going to Fresno?

(You put that FB song on just for me, huh? I knew it...)

Did you know that bread pudding is my favorite desert next to anything with apples? Apple-bread pudding being the best.

Have a wonderful time away! Those old polaroids are so summery - they are warming me up on a chilly autumn australian morning.

I am a HUGE fan of polariod. I own a bunch of SX-70's and do manipulations with timezero film. I'm a serious addict, and I literally cried the day they decided to stop making timezero. Thanks for your polaroids, they brighten my day.

risa said...

LeeAnn said...

I must try the recipe. I have been seeing it everywhere! And I may make the pistachio icecream to go with it. It's almost Spumoni!

amisha said...

thanks for the dessert link... sounds yum! we are big bread pudding fans here (the semi-official dessert of louisiana) so this sounds perfect.

Fab polaroids! They make me want to go outside, soak up the bright sun and the high 70 degree heat. Mmmm...I so wanted to play hooky today.

Thank you for the radio blog club link! I don't know how many times I've had a song going through my head and I've wanted to share, but couldn't...now I possibly can!

:^)

Tiff*

Lovely summery polaroids, I love that you dug them out to remind you of the sun :) the seaside makes me happy! Have a good relaxing time away (even if you have to grade)...I'm sure your students' work will be wonderful since they have an amazing teacher.x

LeeAnn said...

You're first photo inspired me to immediately sing "Let's go fly a kite!" I suppose the blue skies and the colorful flags have me wishing for some kite action. And speaking of delish recipes... I am making that one today! I have heard so many good things about it!

lisa s said...
