I should be ashamed. I haven't posted here since February. I have been writing. Sort of. On my other blog. Elsetime & Otherwhen, where I practice my writing. Cause I am a writer. There. I said it, or wrote it.
Now, from the more mundane world of me. I was going to do this yesterday, but just didn't get it done.
Yesterday was my day off. And it was a good one. I managed to get the kitchen cleaned, again. Get a roast in the crockpot and write a couple hundred words on a story I'm playing with. All by noon. Go Me!!
Then I did a lot of nothing. Isn't that what days off are for?
Yes. I thought so.
I have been busy though. The restaurant takes a lot of my time. Worrying about the restaurant takes a lot of my time. Although things have been going a lot better than this time last year.
And the garden is doing well. Already harvested radishes and peas. The green beans look good, and the tomatoes are blossoming already.
I canned some peas and froze some. I've eaten most of the radishes. I have this awesome recipe for cooking them.
Just take some radishes, small can be left whole, halve or quarter larger ones, add some green onion, saute in browned butter for a bit. Then add about a half cup of water, salt and pepper to taste, cover and simmer until fork tender. MMMMM!
I've also been obsessively been spinning yarn. I have a drop spindle and apparently way to much time to waste.
Next I want to save for a ridiculously expensive loom so I can weave my yarn into something useful. I had the opportunity to play with a loom a couple weeks ago. So much fun!
What else can I babble about?
Hmm. Oh yes. Grandchildren. (You knew that was coming, right?) The grandson is my great love, he's so smart and quite the character besides. The granddaughter, (yes I love her too) is such a handful! Very independent and headstrong. She has to be watched all the time or she's into something.
That's about all the excitement in my world. How about yours?
