First off, Happy birthday to my dear friend, Michelle!
Tonight we ate the last of the strawberries from last summer’s garden. They were served atop homemade waffles with heavy whipped cream and a side of well-done bacon. Mmm, nothing like blowing a diet in style!
We eat breakfast for dinner about once a week, although usually not to this extreme, because it helps us stay within our food budget and my girls will always eat it. There’s little else that annoys me more than an unappreciated meal.
Without fail, every time I cook bacon both of the cats and all of the humans in our house hover around waiting to snatch up the first strips of crispy fat and sodium. If the birds weren’t caged then they’d probably be there too, perched on the counter. Here’s a shot of the ever-hopeful Tasha. Yes, I caved and gave her some, I’m such a pushover.
While pondering my recent lack of knitting mojo I did some stash diving in hopes of finding inspiration among the UFO’s.
About all that happened was that I pulled out Henley Perfected and contemplated frogging it in order to cast on The Eyelet Cardi. I still like Henley, but the EC would be more practical. Then again, Henley is almost half done. The bamboo yarn is scrumptiously soft and was quite a splurge so I want to get as much use out of the finished garment as possible. Feedback would be much appreciated.
This morning we awoke to a minor tragedy when we discovered A3’s newest fish, Tyler, had died. The tank in her room is very close to the window. Our house has older, aluminum windows that the wind just howls through. The recent bout of winter storms may have chilled the water in the fish tank. When/if we get another the tank will be moved or we will try and find a small heater for it.
This is about 10 days late, but here’s summary of 2008 for you to enjoy.
