A couple of years ago, Ming sent us a delicious red chili jelly. As I neared the end of the tiny jar, I tried to recreate it, which ended a disaster as jelly, but it had become an indispensable chili sauce at Chez Nakagawa. As we near the end of that concoction, how do I recreate something that was supposed to be something else? I tried to remember what I used in the ingredients, but Ben had a bumper year of chili last year, (the only thing we grew amidst a field of weeds,) so I got a tad too eager.

It turned in to half a dozen jars of concoction with four varieties of chili that may require a pipette to apply. We may have to bequeath some to a couple of unsuspecting Nelson youth.

Light Nelson 2018

Part 1 : Light projection on wall. Shadow is the people in between light and wall.  This would have been fun to watch kids prance and do funny things but we were too late for that. But Big Kids made up for that.

Wednesday Morning in our Mountain Cabin

It's not a great pic but this is what I got. We've been having a cold spell I love, and some mornings a little bit of mist. Yesterday morning it was spectacular, we couldn't see anything except our neighbor's roof and hills glistening in the sun way over there, (i.e. much better than this,) it felt as if we woke up in a secluded mountain cabin. I grabbed my tinycam and shot a few, with no time to check white balance and other stuff I usually check. The mist was moving fast and seven shots later we were back to another, regular Nelson morning. It was wonderful while it lasted, though.
