Yet again. Coming down nicely out there tonight; didn't start till maybe an hour ago. redux redux redux. 3rd bliz since day after Xmas. I hear the plows outside my window - it is due to snow all day tomorrow and they are forecasting a foot. Only a foot?? Doesn't sound right to me.
Bad night -went to bed at 2 and woke up at 4 - finally came downstairs at 5:30 a.m. Ridiculous.
Made soup this morning and meatballs tonight - enuff for tomorrow night's dinner. Comfort food. The Meatball recipe came out of my Cucina Ebraica - one of my Italian Jewish cookbooks.(they are not mutually exclusive). Ground beef, mint, nutmeg-garlic -basil, tomato sauce, lemon peel: a really lovely flavor. Fortunately, I have a pot of fresh mint I am nurturing in my front window.
So here's what happens when you clean up: you find things. I now have 4 or 5 seam rippers safely in a coffee can on my ironing table. Where they will go next, nobody knows. In any case, either I am losing my mind or evil aliens are coming in at night and stealing things I KNOW I had. Which is the more likely scenario?
See this fabric? I don't buy commercial fabric but I saw it when I was teaching at Shiisa Quilts in Bloomington, IN last year and had to have it. It just spoke to me. Now I know why.
