I am just so domestic!

Picture us, in our aprons, making our holiday gifts for our friends! Well that is how Lisa and finished out our year.  We wanted to somehow incorporate our experiences with We-Never in our holiday gift to our friends and thought – JAM!  OK, so Lisa thought jam.  And like our entire We-Never project, Lisa thought of it … Continue reading »

We Be Jammin’

This “We Never” was a surprising amount of fun given all the work it took.  And even once done, the fun continued.  Let me explain. I never thought we could do it – actually make jam at home on our own that jelled and was adequately preserved in the jars (in other words, the jars … Continue reading »

If a picture paints a thousand words…

This week was a TOTAL winner!  Lisa and I took an After Dark art class – 8-10pm with drinks and adults in a big open, art studio.  Anyway, on a scale of 1 to 10, my artistic ability is a 2.  I appreciate that I may be generous with my 2 but what I lack … Continue reading »

Exploring Our Artsy Side

Some people are born to be teachers and Henderson, the instructor at our After Dark Painting Class, is one of them.  The painting I created in this class may not have been great but the class was.  There were only 4 of us – me, Erin and a young couple.  Our teacher convinced all of … Continue reading »

We are shooting – again?

Well just pictures this time.  Lisa and I took a beginners photography class this week. Despite how many pictures I take, I had forgotten the basics about aperture and shutter speed and how to manage it all on these newer cameras.  So we took a three hour basics course.  And it was PERFECT!  Not too detailed (when … Continue reading »

No Longer Automatic

After 40 plus years of taking pictures, I now know what all those settings are on a camera.  All it took was a really awesome 3 hour photography class.  I’m still no expert but I’ll actually use something other than the automatic setting.  It’s truly amazing what you can easily do with a camera, just … Continue reading »

All we were missing was Johnny Depp!

Chocolat!  and wine! and a BFF to go with!  What a week!  Lisa and I attended chocolate making class. After extolling the virtues of eating chocolate (tell me something I don’t know!), we got right in to making our own chocolate.  I loved our class – perfect amount of involvement and totally something that we could do at home. … Continue reading »

I Love Chocolate!

Some of our “We Nevers” make me question our sanity.  Not this one – there could be very little better than an afternoon learning about the history and benefits of chocolate and then making the real thing.  The guy who taught us was clearly a chocolate nerd (and I mean that as a compliment).  He … Continue reading »
