Ersatz post to keep the blog warm while I compose a kitchen renovation post, and write out the sourdough bread recipe as per several requests
With the turning of the year last week I’m feeling the need to turn inward myself, hunker down by the fire and be with my family. And my knitting.
Soups and stews are simmering away on the stove most of the time these days, and as I write there’s a chocolate pudding in the oven, its fragrance filling all the nooks and crannies in the house. It’s even lured Son #3 away from his Lego.
I meant to blog about the winter solstice, and what it’s come to mean to our family, but the moment passed me by and besides, you can read about it in the archives from previous years. The danger in having a blog more than one year old is the repetition. Maybe I’ve said all I have to say? I’m afraid of this little space becoming one of those Today I ate a cheese sandwich blogs, so you might just have to look at photos for a while until I find something worthwhile to say. Or go read funnier, more eloquent blogs. I’ll be knitting socks by the fire for a bit.
In the meantime, because every post needs a couple of photos, here’s a pair of black wristwarmers made recently for a customer. Gees Louise, how hard is it to photograph black?
