I had a craving this week for something sweet and creamy. I really wanted ice cream, but alas, we had none. I did have some rhubarb stalks though and coconut milk. I infused a simple syrup with the rhubarb (which, holy wow, is that tasty) and added it to a slushie I made with the coconut milk and grated ginger. Yes. Oh my yes. About a gazillion calories, but yes anyway.
I bought this sweet little oil lamp from my friend Haddie the potter and my kids lost the wick so I turned it into a little water reservoir for an acorn. I keep it on my window ledge at work and when I came back after the weekend I found that my acorn has sprouted teeny tiny leaves. Happiness.
Betty thinks my patio furniture is her perch. It is not. Do you hear me, Betty? Not.
In a few days I may be a grandma. Our little Goose may be a daddy soon. Though I never count my
chickens ducks before they hatch, two of the eggs in the incubator have pipped as of this morning. They still have to make it through hatch, but there is a little hope that I might have two ducklings to love soon. Cross your fingers for us.
Stones. I miss working on stones. My work life and my home life have been pretty busy and my hands are yearning for their own work. I'm hoping to put some of these stones in them this weekend.
What's up with you?
