TAD Winter Night Scene

 Hi Everyone!

Today is TAD and Rain's theme is, Winter Night Scene. I have some pictures from google that I have stashed away because I wanted to paint them. However, I haven't had time for that.

 


 


 


 


 




 



Elizabeth from Altered Book Lover ask if I put my window onions in dirt. Ya know this one.

Yes, today I am planting this. I was hoping to have it done yesterday to show photos, but all of my garden soil is covered and not accessible. I had Mr. M. get me a small bag yesterday. 2 points, plant it into the permanent container or ground area. Next, onions need a good douse of Nitrogen when planted so mix the dirt well with some bone meal. Since it's still winter, I will keep my onions in the house. I will be able to use the tops for the next few months, then put outside when winter is over. 
I haven't been doing much cooking. Both Mr. M. and I have not been that hungry, so we just fend for ourselves. I needed to use up the left-over mini meat loaf so made a grilled cheese sandwich with it on sourdough bread. 
OMG good!

Here is a blast from the past. When Mr. M. and I came in from living remote we landed a job at a resort. I will tell you it was very difficult to come back to society, a roof of our heads and back to a job. The place was still out in the wilderness and we continued to live on the upper property in the forest. 
Me at work. I managed the store Mr. M. managed the boat docks. I think I was 33 years old here. One thing I remember clearly was always trying to get the owner to unclutter this area. Haa the guy who owned this place a clutter monger. 

I guess that's it for today. Be sure to visit Rain and why not join in with the TAD gang.

Have a great day everyone!

Nicole,

Great scenes you've picked for your future painting endeavers. I do this, too. Oh my goodness, you look like a teenager in that photo, not at all like a 33 year old woman. :) I like having meatloaf sandwiches with melted cheese. Yum! :p

Leigh said...

Any of those pictures would be wonderful to paint.

I'm not familiar with window onions, so you've got my curiosity up! I'll have to see what I can find out about them.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I can see why you chose those images to paint. They are all great and I know you will put your own spin on them.

Thanks for explaining about the onion and the need for bone meal. I will look, but I don't believe I have any.

I had to laugh at your comment about the clutter on the counter. Haven't you heard of point of sale? That owner sure did (grin!). I hate clutter, too, so that would drive me crazy. You sure look good there for 33.

NO comment on the food. Too hungry right now and I won't eat meat.


Iris Flavia said...

That sandwich looks yummy, and wee... thank you. I just put my boring bread with cheese in the microwave - 100% better!
Eww... clutter. I know what I do on Saturday!

Would you like to tell more about your life in the remote area?

David M. Gascoigne, said...

Now that is serious clutter. It would drive me crazy. And by the way, you were a knockout! I am sure you still are.

I just left a comment, but I have a sneaking suspicion it didn't go through. I will check back later.

Rain said...

Oh look at you in that picture! I love it and your hair is so nice and long!!! I am drooling over that sandwich. I used to make meatloaf all the time, but I eat mostly veggie now. I think I might make a chickenloaf just so I can have that sandwich lol...I like the photo you put of the house on the bottom left, looks a wee bit haunted! :)

Rain said...

Oh yes, I would love to see progress on your onion! I watched a video the other day, how to grow food from kitchen scraps, I'll email you the link.

Great winter scenes, and I love the photo of you Nicole. You look a little like my oldest friend. We're the same age, 60 this year, but I've known her since we were 4 and started school together.

Having a job takes away from creative time.
Coffee is on and stay safe

Nice selection of pics!

Sounds awesome to have lived in a wilderness area.

You look lovely and such gorgeous thick hair!

I love toasted sandwiches! I love that we can get decent vegan cheese nowadays that actually melts.
