Conventional wisdom would answer: To get to the other side, but I think this chicken was just dicing with death. She kept scurrying across the road, albeit at what looks like a crossing, pecking at something and dodging cars and trucks. The Dog Car had just pulled up in its usual spot and when Lorelai Gilmore saw the chicken she almost fell out the car in her enthusiasm to 'meet' the chicken. Eventually Miss Chicken went to the left, up her driveway and back into her yard.
Gilly has been experimenting with make up this week. I am not quite sure where she stuck her head, and let's face it there are plenty of places in our house with green things, but she ended up with a green face. Peri was very clean and tidy and smug, but when I lined Gilly up to have her face washed, Peri lined up too and would not go until she had her turn at special attention.
I actually sewed something this week, a thank you knitting bag for the BionicKnitaWoman for the special flour. I forgot to take a picture. You never know, she might read this and send me one!! Our Dining Out Knitting Group went for tapas this week. And very delicious it was too, especially the sherry. After every sip I was forced to make tiny moans of enjoyment. It was divine!! I didn't have any dessert, but others confirmed the tasting plate was scrumptious.
I am baking Nigella's Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova right now, it is in the oven looking very good. I am having a trial run for MrsDrWho's turn at morning tea. I don't really need a trial run, but as I am going to MrsDrWho's for tea, and Mrs HouseOf will be there, I thought they would enjoy it. And they can decide whether the pavlova needs to be bigger or not. It will eventually be covered with some whipped cream, raspberries and grated dark chocolate. I am contemplating cooking the pavlova for this weeks 'P' recipe, though there was much discussion of the pikelet mixture in a squeezy sauce bottle to make letter and picture pikelets when dining out. I might even have a bonus recipe, who knows??
The very kind Yarnivorous thought of me when she was at Bendigo at The Show and sent me a gift: buttons!!! and some beautifully soft wool. And the greenest picture she could find as a postcard. Thank you so much!!
Next month Self Stitched September is happening again and I am determined to particpate. In fact I was the first person to sign up. I am such a girly swot when I am enthused by something!!
I am definitely going to start some knitting this afternoon. I am going to search out my 2.75mm dpns and cast on for some socks for someone's husband. I really am!! The Sun is shining, even though bad weather is forecast, and it just feels like time to get my knitting out again.
