I turned thirty-three on Thursday. Sounds like a pretty good number, double the fun!
Some thirty-three facts, according to wikipedia:

  • The atomic number of arsenic
  • A normal human spine has 33 vertebrae when the bones that form the coccyx are counted individually
  • 33 is according to the Newton Scale, the temperature when water boils.
  • A significant number in modern numerology, one of the master numbers along with 11 and 22
33 is the coming of age of a hobbit in J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings

Well, I do feel I am coming of age, at least a new age. Wednesday is my last day of work at the coffee shop. The Jerome gallery is wrapping up at the end of December.
I am cleaning the slate, clearing a path for my daughter to join me here.
Wish me luck.

Beyond Printmaking

A group of nine women printmakers currently has a show up at the Raven in downtown Prescott.
It's a great mix of work and very affordable.

This show will be up until January so you have plenty of time to check it out.

We're considering having another opening in December, I will keep you posted.

We did a show here last year and were successful.

This year the art director hung all our work inter mingled instead of in sections.
It looks great!

Hope you can all make it by!

Bisbee Butter

Bisbee is known for its Bisbee Blue turquoise, and now it might be known for another alliterative title- "Bisbee Butter".

Apple Butter that is! The great place we stayed at had some amazing apple trees that we were told we could help ourselves to. Well you don't have to tell me twice!!

I am a big fan of free fruit, urban harvesting , etc.. AND these apples were deliciously tart and gorgeous as well. Hardly a worm was found!

All I've been doing for apple butter is cutting up the apples, (peels on) and putting them in the slow cooker with nutmeg and cinnamon- not even any sugar!
This batch turned out delicious and a very charming shade of burgundy.
I cooked the apples on low for about 7-10 hours.
And walla! Awesome Bisbee Butter!

......Bonus round... the first person to comment on this post receives a jar of the aforementioned butter...send me your address.....! fun!
