I really wanted to capture the tropical storm we are having, but since it started in earnest today and the roads out to the beach are most likely flooded, and even if they weren't it's Shabbat, I decided to showcase weather we had at the Grand Canyon.
I still think it is so neat that we could actually see the rain streaks coming down form the sky. I have various shots of rain clouds taken in different locations because I never tire of the fact we were able to see the rain before it came to us.
This week we were learning about parts of speech. My friend has a glass door she uses as an extra white board or to tape the parts of speech on to. yes I know the background is blown out, but for these shots I do not care about that.
I have needed a 2 cup measure for a long time and was able to pick this one up the other day. I did not realize until I got home and was setting up the shot that this cup can be put in the oven and microwave. This will be very helpful for melting and pouring out butter.
Here on the blue sticker you can see where it says it is for microwave and oven use.
I also saw these colorful paring knives which we use as meat knives too. The colors are wonderful and the stripes on the knife are actually part of the blade itself, not a second cover as I previously thought before I opened it at home. They also had knives with the same colors in different patterns. I might need to pick up some more in those differing patterns.
The blue spoon and pink spatula are supposed to be heat proof up to 400 degreed F. We will see but I did not have nay silicone spatulas and I seem to always need more mixing spoons than I already have.
The one thing I could not find was a large serving spoon. I don't want all plastic nor all metal. The one I have is half and half and since I can see the metal wearing away at the attachment point on both sides and can feel it wiggle when I use it, I need a replacement for that. I went to two stores and neither one had what I need. I sure do like these colorful utensils though!
This is my new binder and new, erasable, refillable gel pens. Blessing and I both love the fun colors and of course, the fact that she still gets to write in pen and erase. You push the pen clip down to release the point. The tip at the top is the eraser and it is hard plastic. It does not erase completely but does a good enough job, does not tear the paper and best of all...no eraser dust! Amazon has the biggest pen packs so maybe someone will get a pack as a Hanukah gift :) as we are missing some of the colors.
My binder is where I am keeping my notes for teaching this year and it is bright,colorful and pretty so right up my alley.
We have some pretty stairs around the downtown area and so I rattled this shot off right before heading into the first night of Sukkot service. There are numerous choices but this was close and interesting so I knew it would be perfect for this prompt.
