sunny


Our trip to the bead shop was very successful. I came away with beads and findings for ten stitch markers, which I've assembled and put to good use separating the repeats of my WesterWaldWaves shawl. Although this Crazy Zauberball yarn puts me more in mind of toucans or rainbows than watery waves.

The weather was magnificent for this morning's beach clean up - warm and sunny with a light breeze. It was an absolute pleasure to be strolling the sandy shores of Lake Erie, even with work gloves on and garbage bags in hand. After our efforts the beach is cleaner and my skin's a little pinker. Now, time to get back to the mundane chores like laundry, grocery shopping and cooking. Especially the grocery shopping because tonight we're trying a new recipe: penne with green beans, potatoes and pesto. Mmm, pesto ...

They look beautiful - especially with your shawl on the go.

I love pasta with green beans and potatoes - I think I tried a similar recipe for you many many years ago out of my favourite pasta cookbook. Surprisingly yummy as I recall. Thanks for the reminder!
