I thought I’d share a few random updates with you today.
I’m still over the moon about my first shoot!
I’m under strict guidelines to wait a little while before I shoot again and I’m okay with that!
I’m trying to share updates on SnapChat a few times a day (when I remember!), so forgive me if you’ve seen some of today’s blog-stuff before.
Yesterday, I thought I was really funny and I “snapped” my shower.
(I only showed the water, but aren’t I funny?!)
I got a new sketchbook, and I love how bright and cheery it is:
Chic Sparrow wide traveler’s notebook.
The yellow color is called “Joy” which seems very fitting for how happy I am about my arm lately!
Yellow is a great color for summer, also.
Individual sketch inserts can be put inside the above cover then removed, and replaced, when they’re full.
I love the refillable concept since I sketch for fun/to learn and none of my sketches are pieces of art.
I’ve been trying to keep Fred and Frank cool now that summer heat has arrived.
Goofy Fred! Frank with camera/photo attitude!
Air conditioning is a must with Newfies!
Fred and Frank play outside early in the morning and in the evenings when it’s super hot.
They nap, wrestle, and cuddle inside the air conditioned house during the heat of the day.
Having a puppy again is a lot of work!
(Frank wakes me up around 5:00 a.m., and I’m so NOT a five in the morning person. Ugh!)
On Father’s Day, I was invited to a restaurant called Forma.
It was great, but it was also very interesting!
They had GIANT bowls “dug out of” enormous cheese blocks.
Here’s a look at a photo I put up on SnapChat when I first saw the Cheese Bowls!
Cheese Bowl at Forma Restaurant.
Forma is an Italian restaurant.
They cook your pasta until it’s almost ready, and then they take it to one of the cheese bowls to finish cooking it.
WHICH cheese bowl they finish cooking it in depends on what you ordered – the bowls are made out of different types of cheese.
Pasta, with a cup or two of hot water (or maybe it was heated wine?) is put into the giant cheese bowl.
A chef then stirs the pasta and adds remaining ingredients.
The result …?
Maybe you’ve seen a restaurant do something similar before?
Cooking in a giant bowl of cheese was a totally new concept to me.
