The garden needs clearing. Time to tuck in bulbs, plant new seeds. The barn wants sweeping. I am thinking of bringing out wool, floss, needles, patterns. The children are making invitations for a Halloween party, and reveling in the details. Maria and I have been drying herbs, and reading books about pickling, canning, preserving. And something else... something new:
I've never been in a book club: squeee!
I never follow recipes: squeee!
We got no capers!
This could be awesome, don't you think?
Karen is quite an inspiration... she's rallied one-hundred eager and willing participants, and we are about to cook our way through local, seasonal, and sustainable foods. My friend, Anne said, "At the rate of 3-4 recipes a month, we'll be together for about 7 years! I am ok with that." I love her analytical, and receptive mind. If she's all in, then me too.
Now to let the chicas know... I need them to pull their weight, and quit hiding the goods!
I love that page of the book. Also, I have to smile when I think of the non-sewers picturing you getting out your dental floss in the fall. Why is she doing that, they wonder. You will have to show them some floss embroidery.;-) Big hugs, chica.
Oh, yes! Every fall I start *flossing,* again.
Hey, got any capers?!
Great idea - must check out this book, it looks like my sort of thing. Living in Spain, I'm so much more aware of seasonal goodies as our neighbours are unendingly generous with the excess from their 'huertas'. We have had tomatoes, squashes, onions, potatoes, peppers and grapes (as well as eggs) in the last week or so. Enjoy - do share the recipes, won't you!
You should write a blog about it...and maybe get a movie deal...pull your own Julie and Julia!
Does anyone have capers, really?
Your book club sounds FUN! And I'm jealous that your daughter reads books about pickling and canning with you. I think I'd have to pin my girls down and read out loud to them for that to happen in this house. *sigh*
Fresh and local... you have marvelous neighbors, Annie.
Hahahahaha... where's Julie now?
I've read that food bloggers ripped her apart.
Besides, it's not my party.
So... what other ideas do you have?
I could use some career counseling!
I feel good about it... mostly I think because I am not running it! My hope is to challenge myself to try new recipes, learn new skills, and enjoy the adventure... did I mention how happy I am not to be in charge!?!
Maria is all about robots to cooking, sword play to farming! Which reminds me, I am supposed to sign her up for ballet! Isn't it interesting to see where our children's interests pop up?
The goats... the goats _caper_ all over the place!
