Review with Three Dogs on the Boardwalk

When winter feels like it’s dragging on, I share with you a photo of three dogs on the Asbury Park boardwalk, taken sometime last summer. My daughter was working on a cover for a Cinquain poetry booklet for her class, and she wanted a dog to represent friendship. We were going to use this shot, but instead we chose a vertical image of one of the dogs standing up against his master.

  • Hannah wrote a post on garnishes in cooking, and it inspires me to consider a series of posts photographing beautiful bits of food: a bowl of parsley, a dish of grated carrots, a plate of purplish red beets. The photograph series hasn’t happened, yet, but if I write it here, maybe I will proceed.
  • There is a review on Jewaicious of a book called Songs for the Butcher’s Daughter: “The primary character, Itsik Malpesh was born in Kishinev during the the Russian pogroms, to a well off family. The events of his birth, as told to him by his mother, are what has shaped his life, and shaped his perception on love. This novel is Itsik’s story, although it reads like a memoir that could be based on an actual person. “
  • Batya has a preview for next week’s big event: Tu B’Shvat.
  • I wrote a post on how one might use Pinterest for a small business. I have ideas for this blog (meaning my Here in HP blog) regarding Pinterest: maybe Pinterest and the Parsha or the much more general Pinterest and fine art. I posted my cardinal watercolor on Pinterest, as this week’s parsha B’Shelach, we are taught to feed the birds.

I enjoyed your posts this week. The photo of the doggies is precious. Just look at them, and in a Radio Flyer wagon, no less.

Thank you for the link.

Shabbat Shalom!

There is some sun today and some bird lifted my spirits...but I think a storm is coming your way....

Leora says

I'm glad you had your spirits lifted today ... we had nice company at our lunch meal, and that made me feel good.

Ilana-Davita says

Winter is dragging on here too. It is in fact extremely cold and we are feeding the birds.

Leora says

Wow, our winter has been too warm. I miss "real" winter. I guess I shouldn't be jealous of cold (it's the snow I like).

Celeste says

Oh my goodness that is just too cute :)
