taking a break


If you've checked, you have noticed that I have not blogged for a few days. Mostly because life is too hectic but also too boring.  If you really want an update, here it is -at the risk of giving you TMI, here is my non-art related story. Start yawning!

I'm working at home when I can fit it in between must-do medical appointments and chores that must be done before I leave for Canada a week from tomorrow -- including packing supplies. Won't customs be in for a surprise when they open my big suitcase? I have one more class to pack supplies for.

Add to this, cooking for Passover which starts Monday night.  My daughter is making the seder - but I still have to cook and bring the brisket, potato kugel and charoses. This is the least of my worries.  There are some logistical issues with getting there and back, since unless we put my mother and her walker on top of the car, we have more passengers than we can carry - what with the baby's carseat.

To distract myself the other night, I somehow wandered onto a website that sells collapsible measuring cups and measuring spoons that don't separate from one another. 
How did I not know that these were two items I have desperately needed all my life?  The measuring cups have not arrived yet, but the spoons came yesterday.  Aren't they cute?
In the meantime, my housekeeper is here so I can't be in the kitchen while she is in there cleaning. Marty is home and I have warned him he had better pretend I am not here. So on that note, I had better elbow my way into the kitchen to check the brisket and then go back to work on my current fabric-related project.  If you don't hear from me for the next who-knows-how-long, don't worry. And don't forget about me.

Thanks for reminding me that Pesach is a'coming! I rely on you for these things. Since charoses is my favorite seder food, maybe I'll just make myself up a batch of that and get a box of matzo and be done with it! Wish I could share it with you!

Okay, okay - enough of the mano cutter! Missing you. Thanks for the block, it came yesterday whilst I was in the midst of newsletter making. Today it is on my wall, but in the hall so that I can get away from it. AGHHHHH! Love, Del
