This Week... Can it be we're at the end of June, readying to turn the page to July...and that the year is halfway??!!
Reading-- Somehow the month has gone, and I nearly forgot to share some of this month's reading! Here are several books I borrowed from the library--all in Norwegian--exploring the topics of bread baking, jam making, soap making, and dress making. Adding to my homemaking skills!
In the Roman Catholic Church-- LOTS of celebration this week! :))) Feast Days of St. Jose Escriva, St. Cyril of Alexandria, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, St. Irenaeus, The Feast of Saints Peter & Paul, Feast of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, and the First Martyrs of the Holy Roman Church.
Out & About-- serenity while out on a walk...
On the Menu-- Thai Red Curry Chickpea Meatballs --one of many vegetarian delights! Basil from the garden in these.
Thankful-- Baking bread for my little family (two and a cat is a family, right?!) has become one of my favorite weekly tasks. There is something so very satisfying in cooking and baking good food for one's loved ones. We are blessed with plenty, and plenty to share. I baked these large rolls for sandwiches, and to serve with soups.
Happy-- It's a bit foodie here today, but we're enjoying so much lately... so many tastes this season, including strawberries with lemon yogurt ice cream. Keeping it plain, and simple...
In the Garden-- Earlier this week I shared a little garden update... And here's an extra view. This BIG rock is on our property. We've tried doing a sort of rock garden around it, but with mixed results. It is always needing some tweaking, as things have not always done well in this spot. The irises--which have done well--are fading out, and fewer in numbers as the years go... This autumn I will be planting something else and, hopefully, refreshing this space for next year.
Listening-- The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band... It was 50 years ago, this album!! And it still sounds as fresh as a brand new day! I LOVE The Beatles!! :)))
Creating & Inspiration-- Oooo... I'm excited!! I've been reading about the Magic Loop method, another type of circular knitting. Using only one circular needle it is possible to knit socks!! I've been reading this tutorial and puzzling it out. This just may be how I can finally learn to knit socks--my most elusive fiber technique to grasp. I have yarn at the ready... Stay tuned!!
LUNA-- Our little girl has taken to "stealing" the seat at my desk... So I stand, which, really, is better than too much sitting. And so, I multitask--kitty cuddles one hand, blog typing with the other hand... haha!
Weekend-- Saturday, weather permitting, we'll be in the garden. And on Sunday after Mass, we may be going to see some art...
How was your week? Wishing you all a LOVE-ly weekend now! :)))
