This morning was very rainy,
so my walk with my boys was postponed.
They seemed ok with that, since they're not keen on rain.
I had a full morning to finish projects,
which was good, since I had an appointment
to drop off two pieces with my photographer this afternoon.
I love how they turned out,
and can't wait to get them back.
"Letters Home 2" had a mind of her own,
and told me exactly how she wanted to be finished,
and that she wanted a name change:
"Letters Home: 1970".
Above and below are images of the 'new piece':
poke berries and rex begonia leaves on silk.
I will back it and then see what it wants.
Here's another image:
I'm hoping to start the third "Letters Home" piece shortly -
back to Procion MX dyes after several months away.
Looking forward to it!
I also cooked up a mess of veggies this morning.
Our CSA basket comes every Tuesday,
so I try to finish up the contents of last week's delivery basket,
if they haven't already been devoured.
We had a busy week of dinners out with friends,
so there was a lot of food to deal with in the fridge.
I made my favorite yummy okra, onions & tomatoes:
Apples were also calling my name,
so I simmered up a delicious batch of applesauce.
And we have been blessed with a plethora of eggplant this fall.
I don't know about you, but eggplant is one of my all-time favorites.
My Mom used to turn her nose up at it, so I never ate it as a child.
I suppose you could say I'm making up for lost time now!
I oven-roasted three, using a new-to-me recipe that I found on the internet,
and then I made a big batch of ratatouille.
I expect that most of that will be frozen for lovely winter dinners.
Then the rain stopped,
so I ran into town and delivered my pieces to the photographer,
stopped at the post office to mail a package,
and topped it all off with a little grocery shopping.
By the time C got home from feeding the homeless and running errands,
I was worn out!
I don't know when I've felt so bone-aching tired.
Is it let-down from finishing those two pieces?
Is it the weather?
I don't know,
but I do know that I took a delicious nap -
which is normally not in my vocabulary.
The cold front, which brought our rain,
is slowly blowing through,
and we enjoyed a lovely 70-degree walk on the golf course this evening.
I am roasting fresh CSA Yukon Gold potatoes on the grill,
simmering fresh baby turnips and their greens,
and also tending to a pot of zipper peas,
which C lovingly shelled about 30 minutes ago.
What are you having for dinner?
