This is my list of five ways to enjoy strawberries:
Eat them straight up cold from the chiller.
Freeze them to become little icy popsicles.
Serve with a dash of whipped cream or ice cream.
Slice them thinly and immerse them in cold drinking water to make a refreshing infusion drink.
If you have one cooking pot of strawberries to make jam, wash and clean them of their stems. Slice thinly and grate them. Boil them and add sugar according to taste. If you have gelatin/ jelly making crystals, dissolve and stir several tablespoons in hot water and stir. Add this to the strawberry jam and bring to boil. Cool it and then refrigerate.
I’m a beginner and self-taught artist. I welcome suggestions for different art forms (and medium) based on my main subject, which is the domestic cat. Thank you.
Frederique’s Sewing/ Textile challenge for the letter A is Abat-jour, the French word for lampshade.
John has a suggestion for participants. Since we may be visiting other blogs, he says to look for bloggers who posted about apple, and the next day, bear and etc. He says its a scavenger hunt. We’re supposed to gather the specific items mentioned in those blog posts and copy-paste the link in our corresponding respective post. For eg., if a blog post is about apple, copy their link and paste it into my own post on the letter A.

In addition, the creator of the A to Z challenge has an extra challenge – collect letter A blogs that feature Apples. Copy and paste their links below:
Glenda, Charlie & David Cates share a blog about homeschooling. In this A to Z challenge, they have included an apple pie recipe.
Life is funny, ironic and unpredictable. I spent many years in my paper chase. I still wasn’t good enough. It is also my fault that I couldn’t handle my home front and potential working life seamlessly. My tired organic body has slowed down. Now I’m doing totally unrelated freelancing, but this is so much better. I’ve also seen another small window enticing me to look into that prospect. I’ll never be successful in the conventional way. But I’ll manage.
I would try to avoid using names that can turn into ironic twists after fate plays its hand on them. I wouldn’t name a boat Last Resort, even if I desired to imply that the boat was the best and the only good choice to use as the last resort. Somehow, names live up to their potential.
I live in a land scarce geographic location. Often in my adult life, I have lived in single level apartments. There were no flights of stairs, steps, or staircase inside my apartment Whenever the elevator was being serviced by technicians, I had to climb up the external stairs . I felt strange and unreal climbing up steps of a staircase. I had been so accustomed to the comfort and luxury of elevators, and escalators.
