Reminiscing about the old days

When I was in high school my friends and I would ditch school at lunch and go to the only place that served food within 15 miles. Raley's. I have always been a picky eater and every time we went I ordered white rice and a bag of fortune cookies. I love fortune cookies. They might possibly be my favorite cookie. This week we had Chinese food and I ate everyone's fortune cookie, and still wanted more. I hinted to my husband that I would love one of those GIANT fortune cookies you can have delivered. Sometimes he is clueless when it comes to my hints. (Sorry sweetheart.) So, today I made my own fortune cookies. I was happy with the way they turned out, thank goodness, because they were a lot of work. And now I might finally be fortune cookied out.

Like mother like daughter

So after my last post I told my daughter about Bob Ross. We found The Joy of Painting DVDs, and she too was hooked.
Her first attempt was much like mine. "Three hairs and some air" did not work, unlike me though she tried it again and was successful. Here are the paintings she made based on his technique.
