Day 54 - Picasso's Blind Man's Meal (My Take)

Picasso painted a portrait very similar to this.   I was trying to recreate it......    Blue is hard......I'm running out of ideas.   I just need one more and then it will be on to green.     And with the last 6 days of rain I think there might be some green around here!!

Week 8 - 52 Weeks of Cocktails - North Pole Ice Tea

Well this drink knocks your socks off.   I am glad I had this in the evening.   No way could you get away with this during the day.   4 shots in this drink and even with dinner and desert under my belt I felt it.   Was very nice though.  

Day 48 - Blue Eyes

My lovely mom gave me this idea.   Blue eyes.   Wish I could have taken her eyes.   So instead she gets the only child in our house that inherited her blue eye genetics.

Day 42 - Piscasso's Blue Nude My Way

Photographers want their images to look like paintings.  Painters want their work to look like photos.   Hard one.  Lots of playing and trying by everyone.

Day 41 - Blue Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Week 7 of 52 Weeks of Cocktails - Non Alcoholic Seasonal Sangria

I thought we'd try a family cocktail tonight.  Since the pack of cards does have no alcoholic drinks in it as well.    Seasonal Sangria.   Well by the looks on all the faces it wasn't a smashing hit.   Pear, Apple cut up, mix with orange juice, cranberry juice,  lemon juice and then topped with bubbly lemon and lime soda.   Which would be Sprite and Lime Fanta for you Canadians.   Eric thought it needed alcohol and the kids abandoned it after two sips.  I agreed with Eric or the fruit should have be mashed up and then frozen to be more of a slushy type drink.   Don't rush out and make this.

Day 39 - Converses

80's -  I think I fell in love with my red converses while in high school.   I remember my dad being appalled because converse were the poor kid gym shoe and he hated them.   Just couldn't understand why they were in fashion when his age group were forced to wear them for gym.    Now they have come back again,  in more colours then you could imagine.  My daughter has a green pair she loves.   Us 80's children.   My brother and I still have them sitting on the shoe rack at the back doors, and we wear them thinking we are still young and cool.   To all my fellow converse lovers.

Day 38 - Blue Koala

I love art work.  I wish I was amazing at it.   I wish my brain worked like that sometimes.   It doesn't.  I think it is more balanced with a little bit of everything.  So that I am not an extreme in any area.   Which is fine by me.   Though some days I think it would be nice to be extreme and be able to focus your all on being creative.

Week 6 - Vectra - 52 weeks of Cocktails

Vectra.   What can I say this maybe my favourite so far.   I found a shop that sells the mini bar bottles of alcohol which helps prevent a large amount of alcohol being bought only to sit unused in the cupboard.   And well I think I may have to buy a bottle of Midori.   This drink of vodka,  midori, lemonade and cranberry juice was very easy to make and so tasty.   Was the perfect drink to just sit by the pool.   Maybe the mini bar bottle sizes are a good thing.   After all this is only suppose to be a cocktail not many many cocktails.  

Day 34 - Blue Bells

Day 33 - Stack of Books

Surprising how many books of the same colour you can find.   If you look at the titles it is a mix of topics as well.
