It's rainy outside and I'm home with the start of cold. I decided to make some comfort food. I love the smell of cooking pot roast. My mom was a great cook and we always came home to wonderful smells from the kitchen.
I didn't want Annie to feel left out, so I got her some HUGE beef bones. I had a long talk with the butcher (I'm sure all the ladies behind me were rolling their eyes) about what size bone would be best for a large dog. While the first beef bone was being roasted, Annie guarded the oven like it was Fort Knox. I'm sure it will give her terrible gas tonight but she is one happy dog.
Made an apple cake for dessert and plan to serve it with great bottle of honey mead made by the Rabbit Foot Meadery - "Melia".
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
