We are having a couple of dinner parties over the weekend, and I decided that since it has been so bloody hot here, I'd make some cooling sorbets for desserts. YUMMMM! So I began this afternoon by making the lemon sorbet. I just love citrus!!! Here it is swirling around in the ice cream freezer.
I've got some yummy watermelon "slush" (pureed watermelon, sugar, lemon juice and a dab of Vodka) chilling in the fridge, and it will become sorbet later this evening. YUMMMM!!! Tomorrow I'll make a dark cherry sorbet, and if time permits, I'll make a lime/basil sorbet. Come on over, there should be plenty to go around!
I finished quilting the complex cloth this morning and have set the table for tomorrow night's "do":
While setting the table, I realized a bit of synchronicity in my diningroom. Here is a lovely silk wedding kimono that C brought back from Tokyo:
Here is a closeup of the embroidery on it:
Look at the crane!!! Do you remember the crane that I had foiled into the complex cloth? I never even thought of it until I was setting the table!! C and I both love birds (and I really love cranes), so it is not too surprising. I will make more good use of that crane stencil!!
The most amazing thing happened this afternoon....it rained!!!
Look at this poor little Canada Goose, out there in the rain all by her lonesome:
The dove babies are born!!! I cannot get a good shot of them, but it was so much fun to watch the parents feeding the babies this morning! I'm glad that I spotted them before they fledged.
My heart goes out to those in Chicago and Finley, Ohio who have been hit by the terrible weather. Hope you are ok, in your corner of the world.
