Back in the New York Groove, if, by New York, you mean Oakland
It's pouring rain outside. It's been raining for a week now, which is lovely lovely, save that I have a bit of work to do to prep the raised bed for plantlings.
New home. New garden. New life. It's been a while.
Easy Infinity Scarf in Rowan Lima
A special project that I will write about when it is done (the recipient knows about this here blog, not that anyone still checks here after all this time, but just in case I'm gonna keep it secret for now).
A scarfy shawly thing I'm making up, based on a Zimmermann blanket pattern from Workshop. Using Yarn Place Graceful. It's turning out hellof pretty. It's much bigger now than this picture shows, but you get the idea:
I was up through the wee hours last night due to a bad clam, so have crawled back into bed to listen to the rain and stay cozy. Duchess and Frank are in their bed snuggling under the covers. I've spent the morning looking through cookbooks getting ideas for what to make for dinner out of my produce box. I still have two heads of Napa Cabbage from last week that need cooking, but I haven't found too many recipes for Napa specifically, so if you've got one, or a lead on one, send it my way. Tonight's dinner will be way simple and stomach-friendly. Thinking about baked Sweet Dumpling Squash à la Deborah Madison's The Savory Way. Then some steamed collards, arugula, and spinach with some garlic and herbs.
Almost time to rise, shower, and head out into the rain. Welcome back, me.
