Summer is back after a lovely two-day break. Hot, muggy, and the crickets are still at it outside my open window. I just made myself a glass of delicious salted lassi - my favorite drink for a hot summer night. If you google it, you'll find lots of variations on the recipe but the basic one I use is this (and I really don't measure)
1 cup non fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin seed
throw in the blender with a few ice cubes, blend, and drink! Some people add mint, some add cilantro, some add cayenne. Some people add more water because they like it thinner, but the crushed ice thins it. Try it - it's great!
I left my camera in the studio (that happens too often) so I couldn't post last night. But I did clean up the front half of the space (except for the fabric on the table, which is a whole other problem I don't have time for right now). Next week, I'll tackle the back half. Major project but has to be done so I can have my classes here.
This afternoon, my package of Aurifil threads arrived and I felt like a kid in a candy store! I spent a good deal of time taking off the wrappers so I could take note of the numbers on the threads and cross-reference them with my chart. This was more or less a grab-bag (you get what you get) and that was fine with me, since I love them all (well...there is that PINK) and can never make a decision. This way, I'll see what I don't have and know what I want in the future. But for now, this should do me, along with the spools I brought home from FoQ.
Tomorrow I'm cooking for Rosh Hashanah and after that, I have Miss Emma for a few days while her parents go away. Aw, gee. We were there Sunday, picking up her equipment (bottles, diapers, pack 'n play, etc). The rest of the family is taking turns with her - she is so much in demand - LOL.
