My brain looked just about that good, too. I was a chaotic mess. But I shovelled out over the weekend and I feel much better now that order is restored (sort of)!!
And with my usual smooth subject changes...
My garden is winding down. My zucchinis are almost done.... my watermelons are ripening... my cherry tomatoes are getting scarce... It's going to be time soon to replant the whole thing with cooler weather crops.
I'm attending a free composting clinic this weekend and hope to score my own composter at a really good discount. Hopefully by composting and enriching my soil (which is predominantly clay at this point), my garden will produce more and insect control and water requirements will be positively impacted. I am going to try a variation of square foot gardening in some of my borders, and in those raised beds, I hope to try various lettuces, etc.
I gathered a lot of Japanese eggplant yesterday. This is just a few.
I was craving soup and curry....
so the eggplant became the key ingredient in a vegetable curry soup.
Must have done something right, because we inhaled it and I had to make another pot of the exact same soup today, by popular request from the Peanut Gallery!
It is especially good with a spoonful of sour cream stirred in! Yum!
Warning: Another abrupt subject change!
Progress, row by row, on the LadyBug quilt for Le Niece continues. I am deliberately setting the squares so that they form diagonal rows in a sort of rainbow effect. It's not as noticable as I had thought it would be, but anyway, here is a picture of the first couple of rows.
And, last subject change:
I forced myself to begin the
But I will perservere. Because I want the entire downstairs to get FINISHED so that I only have to worry about five things in life: eating, sleeping, exercising, chores/work, and getting into my sewing room. Yay!
Okay, I lied. One more subject change. Tomorrow, in an effort to help with the goal of getting the downstairs done and being able to sew more, I'm stocking up on food to cook up some of my OAMC recipes and reload the freezer with conveniently prepared entres. Hopefully, the days I wallpaper or sew, the Peanut Gallery won't starve.
That's my plan, anyway! :)
