Onward to lighter, happier things. I woke up the other morning to this:

My kind of plain old. Those are great fun! (And that soup looks really good!)

JillyB said...

mmmm, I've been looking for a kale soup recipe, what do you put in it? Tell me Thursday ;^)

Hi Rachel.

Would that I were going to Stitches, because I sure want to.

However with all the foster stuff and losing this weekend to surgery recovery and next weekend to a pre-scheduled road trip, heading down to Santa Clara for a day trip is not on the agenda.

Sigh. Let us get you up here for the Booneville Fiber Festival in September. :-)

Late for the last post about the doc, but wow. That would have kept me awake, too. I'm glad they have been fired.

And I hope you had a blast at Cirque!! Whee!

Giganto cats. VERY huge. Especially noticeable when they sit on the chest and the weight threatens to collapse the lungs.

Ooh, nice socks! And I'd love to hear your review of the Kale Soup - Abigail put me onto that concept last spring and I think my recipe needs tweaks.
