I miss my camera dearly. I usually take lots of pictures every day, but now it’s in the shop. I am addicted to it I guess. I like to document my life, even if I never look at them much or share them with anyone. When I was little I used to imagine that a great invention would be made where anyone’s memory could be fully recorded and replayed like a VCR. My mind is always so full of ideas and thoughts bouncing around. It never rests really. It’s loud inside my brain and I have trouble falling asleep. I think that this invention would allow my mind to rest a little. I could let some things go. Let them bounce right out of my head! It would all be there on tape, and could be accessed at any time. So taking lots of pictures is my closest way to replicate this dream of mine. You’d think video might be better, but it’s it’s too hard to take and keep track of IMO. I’ve been using my husband’s camera whenever I get the chance, but it’s not the same. I am so happy that I might be able to get it back tomorrow! I’ve never been great as steady blogging, and without the camera, its generally rather improbable that I might even come here. Well despite that, here’s a little something just because I felt like popping in.
I’ve been making candied orange peels around here whenever there are peels to be had. It’s much better than throwing them out and it’s way better than eating crappy junk food candy. I wouldn’t say these are healthy, but they are organic and pure and simple with no scary ingredients. I like to call them REAL candy. The kids gobble them up. It’s amazing this photo even happened. Four out of sixteen remain and didn’t last much longer after this snap. Got the recipe from Martha with a tip off from Sarah. And the syrup that is left over in the pot is useful for sweetening your tea or anything else that could use orangey sweetness.
The creature pile is building up in the corner. When I get my camera back I shall start adding them to the shop. Other than that, I have two pretty big exciting projects that I just embarking upon. For now, they will remain a secret. But just for fun, if you like, you can peek at my page of sketches that I scanned and compiled to help gather my thoughts for one of said projects.
Please send good wishes that I will be reunited with my dear camera soon. I know, I am really lucky that this is one my most pressing worries at this moment.
