Well, even when one doesn't bake...the baked goods seem to find their way into the house. Yesterday I had a chocolate chip muffin. Today Football Pizza which I make myself. I haven't baked the Boozy Cake yet- maybe tomorrow.
And G used the snowblower and I used the shovel to clean up the mess that the snowblower leaves behind. We got rain followed by snow and then rain again so mostly we had a layer cake of hard and soft snow. Now it's all clean dry asphalt and 36 degrees. Cross the street has a plow guy and it looks really awful over there and she's lost half the side lawn.. plow guy digs right into the grass.
Christmas was a lovely day. Great gifts, Phone calls and the Christmas Burritos were very tasty and I got so many great books... and read one of them......delightful.
Daughter also found a book titled "the Modern Natural Dyer" and it has a list of dye plants. So I am making a list for me to have handy in my purse and one for daughter to carry when they go plant shopping next Spring for the Landscaping business.
I know that Artist Supply in Portland has all the dyes for sale. I could just visit Portland someday and buy them- it's just with reactive asthma I am afraid of the powders. Inhaling them. Killing myself. So the plant material itself sounds safer. The Maine plant catalog never has Madder root. Always sold out. And then..I wonder if I actually want to get into this dye pot thing. When I can paint the cloth the color of madder. I have a picture of the color-- I can mix color. It's something I am good at.
The Patriots lost. Sigh. I had a few spoons of ganache to soothe myself. Now a book to read.
Six more days on my desk calendar page. Daughter got me a new calendar- just like this one. Perfectly DELIGHTED. That's me.
