The Fourth

So I’ve taken a few days off leading up to the fourth and a lot of things have gotten done.  I got the dust bunnies down to a small roar again.  If I waited any longer, they could have mutinied.  I got this crazy idea for a short story last week and started writing it on bits of paper all over the place.  I finally organized those and put them all in a inexpensive composition book.  BTW there seems to be a lot written about what is better paper from Brazil or Vietnam on the Fountain Pen Network.  I picked up one of each because they are ridiculously cheap and I think from the two I picked up the one from Brazil is slightly smoother.  Just in case you wanted to know.  (lol)

I did a warping of cotton sock yarn on my new warping board.  I’m going to try this as a skinny scarf.  We’ll see. It’s a 2.5 yard warp.

I worked on my La Novia some more and it’s growing.  I also picked up my portion of the veggie share box, which I think I mentioned has been stretching my culinary skills.  Well I have to report, I like kale.  I had thought about titling this post – How to hide kale in plain sight? – but went with the simpler title.

Pizza with Kale 7-4-2009 8-40-50 PM

I didn’t know I like it because it one of the veggies I never tried and you just don’t see kale on too many menus.  However, it was staring at me, so I decided I would put it on some pizza.  I quickly did a Google search to see if that would be fine and apparently it is not only fine, but I’m here to report tasty.  I have a little left over for my quesadilla quick meal this week.  In my search I found this fun Kale blog.  Not sure I could do 365-days of kale, but I would definitely pick this up in the future.  BTW, who says blogs are dead?  So not dead – that was very useful info on that blog.  Maybe 2004, but definitely not dead.

It rained the first half of the day, but I finally got out for my Saturday Sky picture when it started to clear up.
