The bread maker

This a lady making some bread. A very simple stove made of a metal top, rocks, and heated by twigs! The bread is very thin and tasty. I used to wait impatiently while my aunt made them. It's best fresh off the stove!

Where the Blueberry Barrens meet the Sky!

Morning after the storm. I headed in search of a painting spot. I arrived at the blueberry barrems in Jonesboro/Columbia!? The fields stretched around on the top where there was nothing but the sky and the wind! I tried to set up my easel but the wind threw it several times on the dry rocks. The wind was very chilly. I almost went back home to enjoy the warm shelter, but I was determined! I sat in my car, put the paper block in my lap and painted. My clothes were all stained with the color, and it was definitely a struggle. But at the end, I felt satisfied.
