Have been trying to keep a menu and follow, but it’s taken me a little while to get the hang of it now with new schedules. Mostly the part of finding meals that I can make while I’m not at home… where is the kitchen fairy when we need her?
But while I have been in the kitchen, I’ve made few things and one of the best discoveries lately, has been the homemade yogurt. And all those fresh strawberries… I love this time of the year, when fresh, new fruits are brought to our table with open hands, after months of apples.
A new found recipe for rolls… it’s in rotation with other breads now.
If we put flowers around piles of dishes and the compost bucket, they look much better, don’t you think?
A dinner with friends, this salmon cakes (that I didn’t get a final picture, which looks much better than this big bowl of salmon mix.)
I think I heard many times from my mom, “don’t run with scissors”, or “don’t run with a knife”, and probably “don’t run with knitting needles…”
But there is a new world record, from last weekend in Kansas City. A man ran 26.2 miles in 5 hours and 48 minutes AND knitted a 12 feet 13/4 inch scarf on garter stitch. That is great! Both in his running and for his knitting. But especially for his efforts in raising awareness for Alzheimer’s.
Something amazing that distracted me from the scorching heat (for a little while at least) while in Idaho last week, is the light. Mark always talks about missing the openness of it all. The big sky. Not having many trees around and the lack of city lights, makes the sky and the night, a show on itself.
One evening I kept track of the light. Here are photos of the sky for us to remember.
This reminds me of my dream of some day going to the north pole to see the Aurora Borealis. Some day.
