I Got A Little Pony

I've been so distraught this week without my Pentax and Canon cameras, then I remembered I had made a little purchase a few weeks ago.

I picked up a little Kodak Pony ii at the thrift store for $1.99. I put a roll of film in it today, clicked the whole roll and was happy to see some decent pictures. I'm still getting the hang of the distance/ focus. But so far it's been a fun little toy. Not bad for a 60 year old camera and expired film.

Here are some pictures from a little walk I went on with my boys around town today.

Happy weekend, friends!


Zucchini Bread, Take Two

What do you do with more volunteer zucchini than you could ever hope for? Why, make Zucchini bread of course.

I didn't plant zucchini this year, but as sprouts started emerging, blossoms started blooming and fruits started growing, I found a few zucchini plants growing full speed. A seed or two must have survived over the winter and found their way into my pumpkin patch.

In my search for the perfect recipe, I found the Paula Dean version, which is exactly what I was looking for. The only change I make is using orange juice rather than water. Yesterday, my boys and I harvested our last zucchini of the year, made several loaves and added them to the others we have in our freezer. We sliced and froze individual pieces to make for a quick breakfast or snack in the upcoming winter mornings.

Happy Autumn, my friends!
