The chicken and the goat in hot weather…

Might I suggest one of the most delicious, filling, and easy as 1-2-I have food meals I’ve had in a long time? The amazing Scrambled Egg Toast, which I happened to read and salivate over at Smitten Kitchen this week; then again, when have I not salivated over anything she makes? This was the perfectContinue reading “The chicken and the goat in hot weather…”

Scenes from a weekend out of the city…

Scrabble tiles from a game with an absolutely stalled board… Fresh pineapple was consumed in large quantities thanks to its general ripeness and ability to get on fine with a pint of Smuttynose summer… I made some really delicious sandwiches for the group…there’s nothing like the entrance of summer. Tomatoes with taste! And of course,Continue reading “Scenes from a weekend out of the city…”

Nuked temps means cuked out…

There aren’t enough cucumbers in this world to keep me satisfied. I love love love that they are like 198.34% water, so they are perfect fooding in various forms for warm weather. And today, it was a warmer. So after an extra long run, which turned into a monumental sweatfest 2010 with about 20 minutesContinue reading “Nuked temps means cuked out…”

Why weren’t “we born” in the UK? Dammit.

Photo Credit: Laurie Scavo This may be one of the greatest things I’ve heard of late; as part promotion for her forthcoming release, We Are Born (which drops in record shops July 12), the ever incredible Sia is having a contest–for knitting music lovers! I just died a bit because I don’t live in theContinue reading “Why weren’t “we born” in the UK? Dammit.”

Jeepers Creepers, this one’s a lil’ ingenue…

There’s something so intriguing about working with 6th, 7th, and 8th grade knitters–particularly, because, compared to other groups of students, they are so eager…and… show such incredible ingenuity. This lil’ Jeeper Creeper is the sole creation of one of my lil’ 6th graders in her first Term of knitting. She asked for very little guidanceContinue reading “Jeepers Creepers, this one’s a lil’ ingenue…”

Baby blabber…enough already!

Here’s a sneak peak at a baby sweater I recently finished for a co-worker with first chhhile. I swear, this year, my work is a baby making factory. Alas, despite my own aversion to having babies at the mo, and in many future mos, I do like knitting baby stuff for other people. My mumContinue reading “Baby blabber…enough already!”

Of these…

…I could use one (particularly with the loverly MackD, pictured in left corner)! This is what happens when you desire some delicious brew, and are returned the spit of the keg because its kicked out halfway through filling your glass. Have you ever experienced such disappointment and regret? And while I didn’t get to haveContinue reading “Of these…”

Garden go…

This weekend, there was plenty of planting in the sunshine; every summer, my mum has a pretty remarkable veggie garden, filled with cukes, tomatoes, an entire section of herbs, zucchini, coveted hot peppers like jalapenos, lettuces, green beans, bell peppers, strawberries, canteloupes, and even broccoli. She gets quite a yield (if its not too hotContinue reading “Garden go…”

Seeing through…

It was eye opening, realizing I can’t really go on much longer without my beloved Pulp and Circumstance, Juiced. And after a rabbit-hole late night search, I’ve found a treasure trove: the cache for about 2 years worth of work, maybe a year and 1/2 and manage to have it “bundled”. But now, I haveContinue reading “Seeing through…”
