Hi there! I’ve been rather busy these past 2-3 weeks: one of the guacamoles has temporarily returned, my hours at work got cut back by one day (YIKES!), but I’ve been able to scrape some side job work to help make up the difference and I’ve been riding 2-3 days each week (fun!), plus walking weekdays at 5:30 am for 2 miles. I had my best friend’s husband’s 50th birthday party one Saturday, then a town group had a reunion of sorts the next.
Plus here in SE Massachusetts, it’s been as humid as I don’t-know-what, for what seems like weeks. I’m thinking we should be calling ourselves the Northern Bayou. Really- my salt jar has water in it, and all my envelopes are stuck closed!
Here’s my progress on Beacon House as of this morning:
That tree is all Algerian Eyelets, but they’re not too difficult or time consuming to do. I stitched more this evening at Jeanne’s, but it’s so dark by the time I got home I’ll have to take a picture another day.
I took today as my day off, because Axe was having her shoes done today. Later, at my side job, my boss called with the news that one of the smaller big jobs we were waiting on was finally given the go-ahead-YAY! They want their plans in a month, so hopefully I’ll be back to my full hours soon, and this means the banks are lending again, and our big big jobs will be starting soon too.
Two Saturdays ago, we had our first reunion of my Rabble-Rowser group and I made these 2 desserts:
A Cappuccino Fudge Cheesecake and
A Lemon Buttermilk Cake with Lime Cream cheese frosting-Yum!
I also made a pan of Chorizo/Rice Casserole- very easy but so delicious I made another pan later in the week for myself. I’ll try to post that recipe soon. If anyone wants either cake recipe just leave a comment and I’ll post those too.
I haven’t even been turning my computer on some days- it’s back in my living room again, and I’m spent by the time I can sit down in the evening, and usually I opt for the couch.
Back to work tomorrow- it doesn’t take much of a disruption to my schedule to make me forget which day it is!
