My lovely new scarf - Cousin Char knitted this for me and I do appreciate it. The weirdness of the weather here has us using the heat for a week and kicking through frost in the mornings; this is followed up by weather such as we are enjoying now....75 degrees for a high (I think that is roughly 23 Celsius) and open windows at night.
But, when it has been cold this wonderful scarf has kept my neck warm when walking or riding on the back of Doug's bike.
Check out the detail and beauty of this scarf. Char is a knitting artist. (Please excuse messy table - dinner prep was starting when I opened the package last week.)
Fresh pasta last night - We had a homemade sauce that was easy to simmer up. A bit of olive oil in the frying pan, garlic, onions and green pepper; simmer low until veggies are soft. Add a can of tomato sauce, about a cup and half of chopped tomatoes or a can of diced tomatoes.
Add basil, oregano, a bay leaf and about a half cup of red wine. Simmer this down for a bit while you make salad or steam veggies or whatever. Coupled with fresh pasta and loaf of bread with butter....nice comfort food.
A couple of snaps of the shibas that I like.
