I wanted you to see Ray and Chris though, these two have been close friends of mine...well, forever. Chris and I have had businesses together, raised 3 children each around each other, we were pregnant with our last children together (we even breast-fed them both)....Ray and I have had so many laughs, cooked meals, we've even made a bit of music together, that was back when I had a piano living with me, he plays guitar and we played and sang some Leonard Cohen tunes...we've made good times. I should add here, Ray is a musician/songwriter/singer extraordinaire....he does have a website and I'd put a link here but he asked that I wait...when he's ready you can trust me to include it in my sidebar. He loves handknit socks. (who doesn't?) He pretty much considers them sacred. He now has two pair but then he saw the felted clogs that Dana made me, now he wants some of those, heh.
I made a creamy salsa chicken enchilada casserole, had black beans and lime slices...(kept it simple).. and the cream puffs. Chris licking her plate, I couldn't resist.
Ray couldn't get over how 'pretty' the puffs were.
I showed him the recipe, he'll probably make them one of these days.Then we all kicked back and watched 'V for Vendetta' which is a favourite film of his.
The candy-assed inspectors did manage to crawl under the new place yesterday, there are a few minor issues that will be addressed and tended to, either by them or us...we'd rather the price come down and take care of it ourselves...Bobby's a bit particular (such an understatement) about how things are repaired....but it looks like everything will be going forward.
There's been some goodies lately,
a few weeks ago Bobby had to go to DC, business, and he called me, middle of the day..he was in a yarn store! Stitch DC as a matter of fact, asking me what I'd like...you'd think it would be easy but it wasn't...anyway, the sock yarn there (Scarlett Fleece...gorgeous yarn!) and then he saw that red lace weight and he couldn't leave the store without it...he's got a thing for red on me...this yarn is incredibly soft and the colour is such an outstanding red. I'm definitely seeing red lacey shawl!
Angie sent me the book, about Queen Henrietta Maria married to Charles I of England...I have read the first little chapter but I need to finish '1632' first, nearly there, and I'm very much looking forward to reading about Angie's beloved Queen...Thank you so much Angie!
LOOK! Socks! for me!
Some of you folks have probably already seen these socks...over at Ms.K's...bless her. In a recent email she asked how big my feet were and had made some comment that with all my charity knitting and holiday knitting for others that perhaps the only way I was getting socks for myself....and I had forgotten all about it...when I checked the mail yesterday I found this little package and saw who sent it...I love these socks beyond all reason and there's a list a few miles long of reasons...so...(as she put it) not only are we soul sisters but sole sisters also...they fit her perfectly..they fit me perfectly...the colours are beautiful, the knitting is gorgeous, and I love the scallop at the top...
THANK YOU, Sis!
Happy Knitting to all and continue making good times.
