About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

I’m Dreaming of a White Breakfast

I woke up this morning hungry as a bear, though not as cross as one. So I made a nice bowl of cream of wheat and enjoyed it with a splash of the leftover half-and-half. Yum!

Later today, I think I’ll make a pan of cornbread. It has been way too long since I enjoyed fresh cornbread with real butter and a tall glass of milk. Or maybe I’ll wash it down with a mug of cream of tomato soup. That might be more in keeping with the temperature outside!

My friend Kristen had this on her blog.

Thank you, Kristen.

And BestFriend had this link on her blog. As a former Democrat [way back in the Frank Church era], I never thought I’d see the day when I’d say “thanks” to Charles Colson.

My friend Bookgrump is collecting yarn for the art teacher at the school where she works.

Elizabeth Perry is a knitter and artist whose blog I very much enjoy. Yesterday’s post appeals to my frugality as well as my creative impulse. I might just have tomorrow night’s Family Home Evening activity all planned out for me!

Speaking of creativity, that’s the least-blurry picture I could manage of the Wollmeise sock in progress. Be glad that I didn’t post the others! I didn’t work on it much yesterday, in favor of knitting an ornament to give Ms.SMU on the train ride home this week. She starts work at a different university next week: a nicer boss, a significant promotion, and a raise that her new boss fought for. I am so happy for her, and I will miss her.

I am saving all the pictures of knitted ornaments and gifts for a post sometime after Christmas.

My breakfast was delicious, and I’m still a little hungry. I think I’ll go make that cornbread now, instead of later.

After we forgot it was fast sunday so had to make them for lunch omelets, I plan to do cornbread and chili for dinner. We will enjoy that while we watch the First Presdidency's Christmas devotional.
