on the upside, with d's new kooky work schedule, i've had lots of alone time. which means 1-watching lots of tv, 2- cooking & eating, and 3-crafting. i'd like to say i'm working on the order so that i sound like more of an adult, but honestly, i love tv. and i'm perfectly fine with watching a healthy amount of it...especially the office, top chef & project runway mixed with design & cooking shows. in the middle of my tv watching, i've worked in cooking & crafting. i was telling stacy that i'm really trying to make at least one new recipe a week. so far, i've made cherry cobbler, lentil soup, apple cake (yes, i heart heidi), asparagus & tomato tart, crepes, butternut squash stir fry, and some other random yumminess. i'm more of a savory than sweet girl, but i have some weird love for baking lately. as for the crafty side, i've made a few freezer-paper stenciled shirts (birds, leaves, hawks & braves logo). and i've sewed a few potholders, more tote bags, several cards, and a little applique. so, i've obviously been feeling quite domestic lately. and i like it. hope you're well. more frequent & interesting posts to come. maybe.
