Not much to offer you for today, just a little sunset on the way into work this evening.
Thursday, December 5th
Of course, my favorite day of photos this week.
Friday, December 6th
A little quiet library time before starting work

Got to visit with a couple friends when we were over in Spokane this weekend! (yes, I am in this photo, but I promise I took others today!)
Monday, December 9th
As can be expected during the final week of November, in the USA, the following photos mainly consist of FOOD.
Happy Thanksgiving week!
Tuesday, November 26th
I got to cook my Romanesco Broccoli today. Unfortunately as I sat down to my snack I noticed lots and lots of little black boiled bug carcasses in amongst the swirls. Ah well. It looked pretty, anyway.
Wednesday, November 27th
Yup. I made cookies today. Are we surprised?
Thursday, November 28th
Happy Thanksgiving! We had homemade cranberry sauce. So easy!
Surprisingly, I also went outside for a bit (though not for long! It’s COLD over in Spokane!), and found these very photogenic grasses.

I made mini Apple pies tonight. In Mason Jar lids. I learned the idea from this blog: Dessert for Two
Saturday, November 30th
I made a giant cookie to send to my nephew. He’s turning 3. :)

Tomorrow’s Macro Monday shot, taken today.
Monday, December 2nd
What do you get when you have a cookie snack while wrapping Christmas gifts?
Well, what you get is a mess, actually.
Good Morning! Everybody ready for Thanksgiving?

With my chances of finding the perfect mushroom fading quickly, I’ve decided to start looking with another focus, abstract.
Sunday, November 24th
Label found on can of Mountain Dew (it’s my favorite, I’m allowed to make fun)
Monday, November 25th
More mushrooms for you this week, though yesterday I was out hiking through the woods when it hit me. Mushrooms aren’t so easy to spot under this thick layer of fallen leaves. As the end fall nears (or has it already passed?), I don’t think there will be much more mushroom searches for me. I may have missed my chance to find the elusive fly agaric. *sigh*
Next year, mushroom, next year I’ll get you.

No feeling so creative tonight, after over an hour and a half of this on the way home. Abra + Traffic = CRANKY!!
Saturday, November 16th
This book has been my companion for the last few days, trying to locate the elusive red-capped mushrooms.

Aaaand this week’s Macro Monday!
This week I wanted to focus on finding interesting mushrooms (I’m still on the hunt for the elusive Amanita Muscaria) for a project I’m working on. There are mushrooms growing EVERYWHERE around here, and this project has really opened my eyes to the variety of fungus out there!

Today Isaac and I drove over to Spokane for an impromptu visit. As it happens, we got to see Emi’s recital!
Sunday, November 10th
We didn’t leave Spokane until after the sun went down, so by the time we got home I had little interest in hunting down mushrooms (though I’m sure there are interesting nocturnal varieties I have yet to learn about)
Monday, November 11th
Back to the mushroom hunt today! Toby and I went out to all the places I could remember seeing mushrooms before.
And the search continues…
Tuesday, October 29th
I’m thinking of putting together a calendar for next year of all mushrooms.
Wednesday, October 30th
And on we go. (I wish I was on a train going somewhere exciting!)
Thursday, October 31st
Trick or Treat!

My view this evening:

Yesterday was so windy, large areas around the Puget Sound were out of power for hours (the library was down for 2.5 hours)
Sunday, November 3rd
Playing around with an old plate and a new apple.
Monday, November 4th
Trying something new tonight scares the dog. He had no idea what to make of my weird endeavors.

FINALLY, my Romanesco Broccoli is starting to grow actual crowns. Since I transplanted them into my community garden plot (from a pot behind our apartment) they’ve been growing like crazy, taking over the whole middle section of the garden. And finally I’m starting to see these! So very cool to have grown such an interesting plant from seed.
More photos as this one and others get bigger (and to pickable size).

Moments before my dog went bat-shit crazy at a horse trotting by, I was down in the dirt trying to take photos of this patch of mushrooms along the road. Seriously dude, what did that horse ever do to you??
Mushrooms must make good neighbors
This is my favorite.

And today’s Macro Monday:
Tuesday, October 15th
Went driving in the country today, and stopped here along the road to capture some of the turning fall foliage.
Wednesday, October 16th
Isaac made it his mission to catch a leaf before we left the park. Eventually, he was able to catch three.

A few spiderwebs found outside our place
Saturday, October 19th
I found several kinds of mushrooms growing near where we sometimes take Toby (now, I know what you’re thinking, but no dogs are allowed in the area I found the mushrooms, so no connection to their prolific growth there)
Sunday, October 20th
This Crusty Bread recipe is one of the easiest I’ve come across, with tasty results!
I’ve made it three times now, once following the recipe exactly, once with garlic, and once with whole wheat flour (and double the yeast!)

This week’s Macro Monday:
Some times I post them here on the blog, but I ALWAYS post them on my Facebook page!

Playing around with the pink power ranger…she’s making her big escape.
(I stopped her before she got all the way up to the deadbolt)

I tried my hand at HDR today. See my first attempt here: themagicalmiss.wordpress.com/trying-something-new/

A few other HDR photos taken on the way home from work this evening.
