|Oh, so virtuous.|
I had picked a handful of kale the night before and decided to make a massaged kale salad with dried cranberries, pepitas, sunflower seeds. and feta cheese. I discovered a couple pieces of pre-cooked bacon in the freezer and added those - feeling extra virtuous because I had taken a (baby) step towards cleaning out the pantry. I dressed it with a variation on Sylvie's Dressing, using some strawberry balsamic that my sister had found in the bargain bin. Delish!
While I was flying high on virtuosity, I decided to tackle two new knitting procedures (to me). I must have been suffering from temporary insanity. I managed Judy's Magic Cast On, thanks to painstakingly slow progress to the stop/start of YouTube. Then on to..knitting a pattern in two colors. Lawsymercy. I thought I had chosen a good, useful and easy-ish pattern with which to launch my new challenge. Frankly, I doubt if there is a pattern created on this Earth that would have been easy enough.
I dutifully shut my office door and turned on some music, so as not to offend tender ears that might pass by during the process. Well. Progress was made, but it was, as Bette D. said, a bumpy ride.
I'm looking forward to Friday (for many reasons) but, specifically, because we are going to try to have another go at The Sister Reunion without the power outage. As I type this, there are severe thunderstorm warnings popping up on my phone. Let's hope that Ma Nature gets it out of her system before Friday. Hear that, girlfriend????
