radio silence

I guess I was unintentionally going with radio silence there.  Things have been busy here.  I’m in the midst of two weeks of sample knitting, designing, and keeping up with all the other stuff around the house.  Plus, Steve has been home on vacation, and, as nice as it is to have him here, it messes up the flow of my day.  To top things off, H has not been feeling well.  It makes him super clingy.  Not helpful for things you need to do with two hands.  I’ll be playing catch up the next few days.

In CSA share news, the weekly harvests are a bit small.  We are between the spring and summer growing seasons at the moment.  When we picked up our share this week the rep was saying how they never know what they are going to give us that week.  For instance, she said, “we keep thinking the broccoli is done, but we go out and lo and behold it’s sprouted more.”  I’m not complaining though, I love their broccoli because H gobbles it down.  🙂

Catching Up

Where does the time go?  Here are a few random catch up things:

I finished spinning up the Orange Cranberry Tart roving from Tuscan Grove.

Being a new spinner, I wasn’t sure that I’d love the look of a two ply, so I navajo plied the first bobbin.  I really liked the look of the finished yarn, so I did the second half the same way.  I ended up with two skeins (138 yards and 162 yards) of heavy fingering/light sport weight.

Yesterday, we got our first CSA share.  It’s still early in the season (even in Texas), so this share is a little smaller than the others will end up.  We got eggs, cabbage, chard, spring onions, dill, cilantro, spinach, and kale.

The eggs are really pretty.

And the spinach and spring onions went into one of our favorite recipes last night (chicken with peanut sauce and green vegetables).  The chard is going in a quiche for tonight.

And, as a final note the entire Buffy series is available to watch instantly on Netflix.
