It is more of a cold and wildy wet afternoon, and I've started making the Cronuts. I procrastinated every day, but there's nothing like a looming deadline to shame me into a task. I spent five minutes rubbing butter into flour and mixed in some liquids and now it is resting for three hours in the fridge. That's my kind of recipe!!!
Peri and Gilly insisted on waiting outside in the rain for me to come home. They were both soaking wet and as they won't be dried with the hair-dryer, it's towels all round. When I went next door for a few minutes yesterday you would think I had left for ever. They stood in The Forbidden Zone and glared through the passionfruit netting until I relented and came home.
Earlier in the week when it was sunny The Labradors were on constant alert. Lots of Council workers were cleaning up leaves and there was generally a lot going on in the street. They didn't know which way to look!!!
The Tumbling Blocks block turned out better than I imagined. Gilly helped by lying on it, but it is reasonably OK. I can see blocks, so that's a start. MrsSherlock sewed almost all of hers and MrsReno only once strip because the machine gave up the ghost a bit and basically we were all ready for supper. I need to make another one now.
The Hand Dye Co-ordination Sock #1 is on its way to the toe, but somehow I lost a needle when I took them with me in case there was a wait at the BlackSpot of DoomLight(tm). There wasn't a wait, but one needle disappeared and two let the stitches out. This is the worst ball ever, the wool falls off the loosely wound ball in a wodge and then makes horrid knots. I can't knit any more until I've unravelled two knots. I am patient, so it will be fine.
Oh no, Peri and Gilly have been outside in the rain again. And Gilly wants to leap all over me. More towels!!! Now they are jumping on the bed, like it is a rebound trampoline for mounting the beam. They did go for a walk this morning, in fact all the human companions were silly (or dedicated) enough to walk their dogs in the wind and rain!!!
I drew the name of the person to whom I am giving the Origami bag and it is Linda at Two Pink Possums!! Maybe we can catch up because we live within a quite loud Cooee of each other, I'll send you an email Linda!!!
I'm reading Raymond E Feist's Magican again. I have a lovely new green hardback special edition. I've forgotten so much about it. I'm bookending the series by reading the first and last books in this endlessly long series. I gave up somewhere in the middle, so the last book will be somewhat of a mystery read.
Today is the 24 year anniversary of living in our house. That is such a long time, I don't know where the years have gone. We remember the years by Vundy and Tori's age, they were born late in 1989, so they'd be 24 this year. It's also Uncle Dutch's birthday: Happy Birthday!!!
Now I had best feed the Labradors, they've momentarily given up hope of any dinner!!! Back tomorrow with Cronuts: good, bad or indifferent.
