Before we head for T today, I have two announcements to make. PLEASE READ them. I will be participating in Art Every Day Month again this year. Since Leah, the host always posts at midnight her time, it is 11 pm here. That means I must post a bit earlier so I'm not too late to the party each day.
Second on the 2nd will still post at midnight my time, which is normally 6 am in England. I say normally because the UK went off Daylight time this week and the US doesn't for two weeks. If you're not sure about the time difference, please check my right sidebar for the time closest to you. T will still post at 4 pm each Monday in my world, 10 pm in London, and 6 am in Brisbane. However, everything else will seem a day early on my blog if you are unfamiliar with this once yearly setup. Art Every Day Month begins tonight, so my first AEDM post might be showing when you arrive for T. Don't worry. I'll instruct you to please scroll backward to get to the correct post.
Now let's head to
DeFazio's, an Italian restaurant my foodie friend Sally and I like to visit.
They like to tempt you as soon as you walk through the door.
Their menu shows the original founder of DeFazio's. I read recently the restaurant has been in this same location for 34 years.
We each received a salad with our meals, but I don't like their vinegar and oil, so always ask for Ranch dressing on the side.
Sally ordered off the dinner menu and got extra meatballs and mushrooms. I ate off the lunch menu, which meant my meal was much smaller. I still couldn't finish it all.
Thankfully, I remembered to get a shot of our drinks, which was water, mine with lemon.
Now it's your turn to
share your T inspired link. You may show a glass of water, mug of
coffee, cup of tea, glass of
buttermilk, bottle of wine, mug of hot chocolate, you get the picture. But don't feel you
have to limit it to a physical drink. You could share the drink while
you are out and about, in a
postcard, movie, book you are reading, garden plant, or a sketch,
scrapbook page, painting, or collage made in your journal or altered
book. Your spread could be traditional, hybrid, or
completely digital. The
choice is yours as long as there is some reference to a drink. Once you link (direct links only, please), Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.
Please don't forget to dig up your Second look for the 2nd. Every and anybody is welcome to join.

Art, including the journey, background techniques, new experiments, photos, failures, and successes will be shared on this site. I have removed my e-mail address until such time as I can get it to work again. Thank you for understanding. You can always leave a note on my blog and I will visit you.
Please check out my Previous Collaborations link above to see what projects I have been involved in over the past seven years. Current and ongoing projects only are shown below.
Occasionally, Silent Sunday will showcase photos of my home, neighborhood, or community. A picture is often worth a thousand words.
