It's snowing today, a fine snow that falls... not blowing sideways as usual. It's a portrait of winter to me.
Today I have to make another batch of iced tea.... I steep 6 bags (half decaf green) to make two quarts for us to have with the week's lunch.
I have to finish my third challenge quilt for the week
it's going to be a table runner made from the pink scrap bin. I plan to do curvy edges, and appliqued flowers and a heart. It is the kind of quilt that symbolizes the importance of each one of us to the whole... each 2" finished square is small but brings different color to the whole, each one is strengthened by the others, each one is integral to the whole piece, and together they make something of beauty. Just like citizens of the world... each one of us is important to the group, and each one of us can bring beauty to the world, or if they fray and pull away the whole life quilt is affected.
I just finished a wonderful audio book and glory be! There is another one in series to reserve at the library! Can't wait to continue the story!
the story is that a woman who is sensitive to objects and their owners from the past traveled back in time to solve a mystery case.
On TV, There has been a BBC remake of All Creatures Great and Small... I loved the older series and am enjoying the current one, with the one drawback of casting for Tristan... they cast the guy who played the gun happy younger brother in the Durells in Corfu... miscast in my opinion as he is distracting to the story. Still.. worth watching. (and reading the real life books written by the actual vet)
I've been baking and want to share these
I had bananas. I had pumpkin. I had a desire for a good breakfast muffin and these are the best ever muffins I've ever made!
Of course I changed the recipe a bit. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour instead of all white flour.
I used half brown and half white sugar
I added in some fresh (frozen) orange peel
I adjusted the heat/time for high altitude cooking.
I'm turning into a cook...
Finally, I've enjoyed watching this man play music for his whole ranch of critters
I have watched a lot of videos of this rancher playing his guitar and singing for his donkey Hazel but this video made me really smile... some people are critter whisperers
If T is for Chooseday... please choose to wear a mask and stay back from others. Reports are showing that having the virus causes 1/8 to have permanent neurological problems after recovery. Things like mental illnesses, strokes, dementia, as well as lung scaring. It's no joke.
Those of you in America who don't want to wear a mask and believed this was a hoax, it's not. You're endangering me with your denial of it's danger. To the wonderful people reading this who are doing all you can to stop the spread... Thank you...
Happy Tuesday y'all
