“Plan your work and work your plan.” (Vince Lombardi)
Well, wonders never cease- I have started pout with Vince Lombardi and Superman and I am seriously uninterested in either except for what I posted!Let us hope that it goes up from here, eh? Though I doubt it.
Today we have a friend and her 2 adult children coming and i am making Indian food for the first time. I got ahold of a couple of recipes in Bon Appetite this month and discovered I had every spice they called for so I am off and running. I know she likes Indian because we go out for it frequently but I have no idea about the offspring- so one thing I have is Butter Chicken which is highly spiced but not at all hot- hope they will eat it 'cause I can't feed it to the dogs! Of course I've been sampling as I go along and have come pretty close to my Indian food quotient for the month so far. I better make extra rice. Sigh
Today is the first day in weeks that I've had the doors open wide- the plants in the garden are really taking off and I can't wait to see them in a couple of months- we are headed for lush and jungly!
Even the plants I left out in the cold wet weather are doing great:
The first picture is a collection of air plants that I haven't killed in several years of neglect, instead they just keep getting better as longs they are under cover and don't get too much water. The orchids are a gift from a dear friend who brought them over one day to welcome us to our new place- Amazing! She loves orchids too and I am going to pick her brain on what to do to keep them going other than NOT watering them! That I can do.
The other day in the studio I made the cover for my little challenge book, but I had clips all over it and didn't take any pictures yet. Thought I'd get back yesterday but I was pretty busy with cleaning turmeric out of the sink. My food processor is now permanently marigold yellow- tried everything and can't get it out of the plastic.
Another project- I got all my hurricane lamps filled with odorless colorless oil so they are ready to go-
I haven't used them in almost 20 years and took them out of a box sent from Boston the other day. I love these old lamps and they will be perfect on the lanai once we get the screens installed- don't want ny moths flitting around the flames! I'm so happy to get them out again. I had about 10 at one point but think I sold some of the plainer ones at a garage sale, just kept the cut glass pieces.
OK, that's boring enough- time for doggie duty and I got check the rice!
'The Guys', always ready for action.
