These photos show my wedding ring, going around it to show the details.

I was very lucky to have a good friend who knew an artist who made jewelry. I wanted something personal, something that spoke to me about who I am.

These views show that I got just what I wanted.

It's a lost wax ring, which is a type of casting. Hope you enjoy!

A cautionary photo from my kitchen . . .

There's an adventure that surrounds my photo of the prime rib we had for dinner tonight.

I was cooking it in my normal way and it was time to take it out. What I hadn't expected was an oven full of smoke that emerged!

Too late I realized what would happen and then it happened! The smoke alarm went off and off and off. Too late I shut the kitchen door and turned on the fan.

The firemen arrived, complete with sirens and lights. My husband explained what had happened and they left. The adrenaline kept going on. I finally calmed down and we had a nice dinner.

If it happens again, I'll know what to do. ~whew~

It was delicious!
