The past week was a washout, literally. 😉 Okay, it wasn’t that bad, but we were in the midst of the Deluge that has left some parts of our surrounding area under water and cancelled nearly every 4th of July plan we made. I finished the body of the Raindrop Cardigan on a whirlwind trip to Indiana to pick up the table upon which it is pictured. Unfortunately I forgot to bring the crochet hook to do the edging, but I did bring the needles and yarn for a project that calls for yards of easy tubular cord, so I packed away the sweater and started it instead.
So sometime soon I need to pull out the crochet hook and finish this!
To show I do occasionally pop open a serious book, here’s this week’s read. I like the recipes in this book, but I would find it hard to completely eliminate sugar from the diet. I mean, how do you can strawberry jam with no sugar? Does anyone have a recipe?
And as for giving up THIS:
EEK! How would I survive? Not happening.
However, I’m reading the book because some of the kiddos may have wheat sensitivity and it was recommended by a very dear friend who is also my special needs counselor of sorts. When I was browsing her copy of the book, Haus Meister happened to look over my shoulder as I turned the page to “Creole Crawfish Casserole” and told me to order the book at once. 😉 Seriously, the recipes look delicious, and they’re all wholesome.
In other reading news, I reread Wodehouse’s Something Fresh again last week. It is still my #1 favorite after all.
