Heavenly Desserts!

When I get stressed, I need to blow off some steam.
And how do I do that?
By baking!
Let's just say that I frequently need to release stress.
And I frequently kick myself for it because the scale tattles on me later ;)

This is a Southern Classic - 7 layer chocolate cake with homemade fudge icing.
I can hear my scale screaming at me already...

Causing steam..

Here in Idaho we are having some great thunderstorms.  I was at my parents house yesterday and was fortunately to capture the sunset peeking out between the blanket of clouds and the horizon.  (First time I saw the sun all day).  The only problem is the power cord running right through the shot (bottom picture).  Anyway, I wanted to remove it so.  But the only time I can squeeze it in is at work (too much going on after work til Monday).  So I uploaded to MS Paint and  use the color picker tool and just slowly removed the cable.  Not the greatest job (that will happen this weekend) but I thougth good enough to share.  A couple of times I got so frustrated that I thought steam would come out my ears but I made it and thank heavens I kept saving every few changes.

I am also working on a rainbow if you want to check that out on my blog

Challenge: Steam

Perhaps cus this challenge blog has been losing some of it the last year I chose the word steam to do a challenge this week.  I really hope you all get a chance to submit something this week.

Borrowed Lens

I shot a wedding for a dear friend of mine in January.
I borrowed a lens from a friend of mine (Canon 24-70mm). I had been wanting to buy it for a while, but figured I should test drive it first :)
The results were amazing!
I've borrowed it a few times since then and I plan to purchase it very, very soon!

I loved this particular image so much that I used it on my business card.
