Pie recipe, quote

Quote of the day...."Love your parents. We are all so busy growing up, that we forget their aging too. Don't take the days for granted and make each moment count."

When Bob and I were first married our house had a concord grape vine in the back yard.  My wonderful Mother-in-law not only helped me make and can grape jelly each year, she also introduced me to "grape pie".  The recipe was in an old edition of a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and I try to make at least one pie each year; not only because it tastes so good, but it also brings back memories of my Mother-in-law.   I've discovered that most people look at me quizzically when I mention grape pie, and they always wonder how I get rid of all those seeds!                I encourage you to try one -  it is delicious.

Challege, quote

 Morpheus: You have to let it all go,  Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.

This weeks challenge from "The Diva"

Weekly Challenge #86 "Break Free!"

"A traditional Zentangle begins with dots, border, string - and often times, the string stays inside the border we drew, containing our work to the inside of our tiles.

I often find myself enamored with those tiles that seem to extend off the tile - and  sometimes i forget that one of the wonderful parts of learning the rules when it comes to art, is learning when and how to break them.

This week, the challenge is to break free of your border! To create a tile or ZIA where SOME element of your work goes beyond the border and stretches or expands out, free from constraints!!  "

Here's two that I drew for the challenge:
