scalloped potatoes

A weekend wrap-up

So since my brain is fried & I must finish some audio editing, here is the skinny on what’s been happening here at Chez Oney:

  • had to pay No. 1 son’s rent again, so I was left with very little money.  I couldn’t go to Nashville and sing with New Jubilee and so no caroling happened. Poopies.
  • My dad has been SMOKE FREE for 3 weeks!  It’s a bloomin’ miracle!
  • Both the Duke of Curl & the Force of Nature had some funny little illness this weekend. The Duke of Curl is home today from school because his face had this grey look that was a little bit alarming & certainly not good for going to school.
  • I may have a touch of what they’ve had. I slept a LOT this weekend & I have almost zero motivation to do anything today.  Of course it’s also little chilly & grey & rainy out and that could be it. Plus it’s Monday.
  • I’m gonna get a podcast out BEFORE the end of the week. Stop laughing please.
  • I have just 3 rows left on my shawl. NOTE TO SELF: No more KALs in the 4 months before Christmas……
  • I made really delicious Scalloped Potatoes last night.  For most people, this would not be a blog-worthy topic HOWEVER I have tried & tried all different kinds of recipes over the last 20+ years and not ONE of them turned out any good. But NOW I can do it!  Yay!  Believe me – this is a victory!
  • Planning on learning Entrelac with Sarah in January.Time to add a new skill to the knitting rep.

Doesn’t this look really groovy? And difficult? I think it looks like FUN!

 

  • Book writing is slow.  I may have to go to the library everyday to get this sucka done.
  • I need to wrap a few Christmas presents today. It will be a small Christmas but that’s dandy with me. I’m **really** pleased with the gifts for Studmuffin.
  • I bought the last yarn I’m gonna buy for the next 2 years.  OK, I really mean it STOP laughing!  I need encouragement not giggles

That’s all for now folks. God willing, a podcast & show notes will be occupying this space very soon. Wish me luck!
