August continues.... orange air

From my kitchen window the morning skies continue to look like this.......




and the skies are devoid of clouds and color,
hardly a bird to be seen or heard......


With more indoor time, little projects done.  It's a great way to use up fabric and they're fun to stitch.  What is about sheep??



and a dog....



  

                    

The boys of summer 2018, separate and together.



As yet no new spinning to report as my left hand still has carpal tunnel issues.  The wrist support has helped.  In the meantime I've been sorting and clearing in my craft area.  And yes, it is getting easier to let it go.

Local markets have a bounty of fresh produce this time of year.  Cauliflower is very reasonable and each head is huge.  Online I found two recipes that appealed.  Cauliflower tabbouleh salad (will make this again for sure)  and Cilantro Cauliflower rice (dinner tonight).  The next one to try is a savory zucchini galette, later this week once the temperatures cools a bit.  I've been using a Starfrit manual food processor to rice cauliflower.

Back to basics (again) I found simple solutions for shower/tub cleaner.  White vinegar and dish soap, add essential oil if you like for fragrance  and most important a decent spray bottle.  I won't be going back to store bought any time soon.  

Wildlife encounters zero so far this week.   Last week it was the skunk on the patio....cute as it was it's a no thank you to the visit and letting loose because the dog barked at you.....it left before I got a photo.




pretty in pink





till next time....


(ps  more sheep coming  and sunflowers too)
