Weekly Challenge #186
'String Theory, Leaves, Leaves, Leaves'
I was so excited when I saw what the weekly challenge was this week! One year ago, when I discovered Zentangle, I had a vision of tangling all over real leaves. As I would take my kids to school and see beautiful leaves all over the ground, big ones, little ones, and most of them brown. I thought to myself, these would be just amazing to tangle all over! So I put them in a book and let them get pressed and nice and flat, for a whole year! Laura's challenge, reminded me that I had these leaves all pressed and ready to be transformed! So here is one of them,....the Sycamore leaf! (The other two little ones I just found today and thought that they would look cute next to the big one. They are not pressed.)

|Tangles used: Fandango, Ansu, Betweed, Birds on a Wire, Angel Fish|
|After doing this, one leaf, I now want to make a collage of these. I will keep you posted if I do.|
Fall is my favorite season of the year, even though here in Southern CA, we don't really get a true fall! (It is also, a very special day for me because my middle child was born on the first day of fall, 7 years ago!!! He always asks me to make my famous sugar cookies in the shape of leaves, for his birthday! So I had quite a lot of fun Tangling all over leaf cookies today too! So fitting for this weeks challenge!)
Anyway, enjoy the colors and,.............. hope you get to,.....Fall into your Zen!!!
I wasn't quite sure, again, what I was going to do for this one but then it came to me. Years ago, I visited my cousin in Juno, Alaska, and he prepared an awesome grilled salmon! It is still one of my favorites. Quite simple, and full of garlic!!!! So I present to you the recipe for Grilled Salmon. Minus the directions, because it wouldn't fit on an Inch. If you'd like to know the rest of this recipe, just leave me a message and I will do so! (Heeheehee)
Thank you to all who leave such friendly messages on my posts! You bring a smile to my face! I always like to return the favor! Last couple of weeks have been busy, so I hope to do better at that this week.
