But while the photos aren’t great, can I brag a bit and tell you what a huge hit these were at the Teacher Appreciation Lunch? They smelled terrific. Strawberries and chocolate – yum! I normally don’t like buying strawberries in the winter here. No matter how good they look, they rarely taste that great. But these smelled so yummy, I took a chance. SO worth it. Two dozen vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and topped with chocolate covered strawberries. Nothing to them but they look like you put a lot of effort into them.
I found I this great box on Pinterest. It’s available on Amazon, and it comes in white and five other colors. Its by Blue Lounge Design, and it holds a power surge protector and all of the cables that lead into it. I think I am going to get one for the TV and all the video equipment and games that go with it, another for the desk, and one for the counter where we charge all our stuff. Here's the link if you’re interested.
In the “more bad photo department”, here’s one I snapped really quickly (didn’t even check my settings) on the way out of the car on Sunday. The moon looked pretty neat, and there were a couple of planets visible here. (Only one shows in the photo.)
As I complained to my husband that you really can’t see the stars where we live anymore (mostly light pollution I guess), I zoomed in and saw this:
Can you believe not one star was visible to the naked eye? Amazing what a really great lens will pick up, isn’t it?
And one more cupcake shot to sweeten up your day …
