This post was actually writen yesterday (Thursday), but Blogger refused to upload my pics yesterday, and it took F-O-R-E-V-E-R this morning...but finally...here it is...
I sat with my grandson as he tried some paintbrushes out today that my daughter had found in her room, called Paintastics! There are about 6 colored prefilled brushes, and then there is a white double ended ( a brush on each end), and each end, when painted over a color, changes that color to another color...so if you start with orange, you can change the orange to pink with one end of the white brush, and yellow with the other. Good for kids to play with.
While he was doing that, I was thinking about not much at all, just doodling and came up with this tree in the financial journal...I thought if I blew this up real big, it would be neat art for a securities company! This page mentions Janis, Morgan Stanley and a few others! I wrote "Grow With Us" at the top to reflect my idea after I had done it...LOL...funny what your mind comes up with!
And here are a few shots of my dried apples! They are surprisingly good! Some did not dry as much as they should, most were just right, and some dried a lot and came out kinda crispy like apple chips. Those are intrguing to my brain!
I like the dried and over dried ones the most (the darker they got, the crunchier they are)...and such fun! I have my bag of munchies right now, here...crunching away as I blog! I can't wait to try some of your suggestions also! Gonna spend some time tonight looking up some ideas for the dehydrator.
The next project I want to try is turning shorts into skirts! I wear a lot of shorts down here in the heat, as I imagine a lot of you do as well. I saw where a blogger had done this and I think I would like to try...maybe as a sort of second life for the shorts...and something I can then wear to work...I am so darn cheap the idea really appeals to me...but I hate sewing...so it takes everyting I've got to pull out the sewing machine. Ohhhhh...groan, bitch, moan. It will happen...and probably today. I will try to show pics!
