Continuing in the cooking theme

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Ugh. I don’t know what happened, but about 45 minutes after I got in to work this morning, I felt all the energy drop out of my body. I decided to come home and rest and get one of my Thanksgiving dishes out of the way. Thanksgiving approacheth. Everyone in the family who’s getting together […]

Ahhhh, soup

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

It is trying really hard to be soup weather outside. It’s overcast and gloomy but it’s just not quite cold yet. Still, I had a rough time this week so I decided it was time for one of my favorite comforts soups. Garlic, carrots, celery, cilantro, Italian sausage, tomato paste, balsamic vinegar and assorted seasonings. […]

And in between, a waistband is born

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

The week started and ended with me waiting in a movie theater lobby for a movie I would not see. in between, I made the waistband for a vest. Many thanks to everyone who commented on the post yesterday – especially those of you who’ve actually taken the plunge and uprooted yourselves. I’m glad to […]

Random thoughts on a chilly morning

Friday, November 16th, 2007

It’s chilly in San Antonio this morning. I think it’s about 40° outside my front door right now. It’s the coldest morning we’ve had since last April, and I’m really happy it’s here. The coming of cold weather always reminds me of an issue that’s been near to my mind for a long, long time […]

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Just before the world turned to slag Monday night, I did managed to cast on for the next Sooper Seekrit Projekt! But, I am a slacker, so no pics yet. Besides, how fascinating is an inch of 1×1 ribbed hem for a vest, anyway? I mean, really? I’m using the Berocco Merino that I won […]

I have got to stop going to Alamo Drafthouse on school nights. I went there a couple years ago when Serenity came out, and a few minutes before the movie was supposed to start, I got an emergency page saying that the DNS system (which I was in charge of at the time) had died. […]

Hey! You! Go buy yarn!

Monday, November 12th, 2007

I’m an idiot. I completely forgot to post the link to Amanda’s Etsy Shop yesterday. Looks like she’s out of stock right now, but when she gets updated, go buy her yarn! It’s beautiful and non-carcinogenic. C’mon, you know you wanna.

The wind is blowing outside, carrying brown leaves that have just fallen off the trees. It’s still warm outside, but the trees know it’s Autumn. It won’t be long now until it’s sweater weather, and that makes me happy. Anyway – I have evidence of stash enhancement! First, I got some Brooks Farm’s Four Play […]

Happy Birthday To Me

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

36 years ago, an Air Force Officer and his wife found themselves in Phoenix, Arizona, USA to witness (well, witness is somewhat detached) the birth of their third child. They didn’t live in Phoenix. They were there because they had a really hard time finding a doctor who would allow the father in the delivery […]
