Inside looking out …

1 Comment

It looks pretty nice outside right now, but it’s deceptive, as the wind is definitely strong and chilly. A snow squall moved across the St. Louis area this morning, causing whiteout conditions for 10-15 minutes, but it stayed north of us. I still need to go out after a while and fill the bird feeders as they’ve gotten empty again – I can see the chickadees and nuthatches working at picking out the last few seeds. The suet feeder is the only one that doesn’t need filling.

The knitting is coming along – the back of the first sweater is done, and the front is almost to the neck <guess it’s time to figure out the numbers for that and for the sleeves>, and hopefully the yarn for the other sweater will come soon. Of course the little silk number and the 2nd sock are languishing in their respective bags while I work on deadline projects …

I’ve just put black beans on to cook – eventually they’ll be Cuban Black Bean Soup. When PBS started airing Daisy Cooks!, I discovered a whole new-to-me cuisine that I just love. I ordered her cookbook, added more ingredients to the pantry, and several of Daisy’s recipes have become menu staples around here, including her Stuffed Peppers (with slight modifications). Unfortunately someone else in the household isn’t quite as fond of those as I am, so I need to cut back just a bit on the frequency <g>.

Stuffed Peppers ala Daisy

  1. Hello Joy,

    Just before Christmas I found your Christmas Stocking pattern at:

    My mum loved the pattern and used it to make socks for Premature babies. Another lady saw the pictures of the socks mum made and as she is in our group would like the pattern to make some too, but your website is down. Will the website/pattern be going back up?

    And if not if I add the address of this blog to the sheet which already has your full name and copyright details on it would it be alright to lend the pattern out? The group make premature baby clothing here in the UK and are completely non profit and a registered charity? Formal Permission to use/share the pattern for this purpose would be wonderful.

    Best Wishes, Lindsay
