A good day

Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God! King of the universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine. Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God! King of the universe, Who brings forth bread from the earth. traditional Jewish blessings

So, this morning I broke my no sugar fast with strawberries and plain yogurt, as well as, steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon and Splenda. After 2 weeks of no fruit, bread, pasta, or grains... it was divine. Made me really appreciate all of the wonderful 'real' foods that God has given us.

LUNCH
I ate this with lemons, tomatoes, chickpeas, romaine, onions, hard boiled egg, and oil and vinegar. It was a FEAST!
On another type of delight: Yet another spurge from Sakinas Needles. Blood orange, 100% mohair! I have NO idea what I am going to do with it.
Here is the rest of the haul. I am going to spin a 3-ply dk/sportish weight yarn in colors going from the blues to the plums. Then, knit a side to side sweater, v-neck. The ideas are from the book: The Twisted Sisters Knit Sweaters. A knit to fit workshop. I am having to take a short hiatus from knitting because my left shoulder to my elbow hurts. So, I guess I'll get this spun up in no time.

I just cooked that couscous the other day too but just plain. I had never cooked it so I didn't know what to expect. I was the only one who ate it!
Your recipe looks heavenly!
What a creative teacher you are!!!!
All that future spinning ..... any $$ left for a grain mill? Uh Oh!!

Whooo Hoooo, the weekend is almost here for us home educating moms!!! I have to know, what history curriculum are you using with the kids. Just asking for when my youngest is ready for the cunieform stage--the other one (almost wrote 2--keep forgetting the other one is at college now). My youngest read his first words yesterday. I had forgotten the feeling that gives me, and the way their faces light up when they realize what they've done! Wouldn't trade it for the world--most days anyway ;o)

Last should read....the other one is past that stage now. Sigh. I need to hit the hay.

You continually impress me. Incredible chef, teacher, spinner, knitter. I love all of your latest "creations."

Dana said...

What a haul! All of your spinning colors are just striking.

The couscous looks wonderful (it's a favorite of mine and my family as the MOTH is an Arab). Have a great weekend and hope your shoulder/arm feels better soon.

Hi – I saw a comment that you left on my friend the FemiKnitMafia’s blog. I wanted to email you a question, but I can’t seem to find your email address. If it’s not too much trouble, can you drop me a line at aswiminknits AT yahoo DOT com?
Thanks!
