I am happy to report that I touched on everything on my Friday list. But I did not complete the things I intended to.
The curtain rods and I had a major argument, and I did not have the tools available to win. Tools are A’s domain, so she will provide me with a drill bit in the proper size and drill with a charged battery today. Then I will hang it. Then I will finish the curtains. I did press them to open up the last bit of sewing I had done, and finished the raw edge at the top. All ready for the rod pocket.
I did get the hose for the pool, hope to get the filter installed today, now that it has stopped raining. 😢
I did go to the grocery store and did bake the cake. And remembered that I meant to buy a cheap bottle of wine and why… we don’t drink wine and thus have no tall glass bottles on which to hang the angel food cake to cool. I fussed a bit, then wrapped a paper towel around a wooden spoon and stuck it in a pitcher, with water to weight it. Not perfect but it worked.
I did fix the berries and make the second most favorite frosting for the cake.
I did get to spin a tiny bit, and knit, but most of the day turned out to be spent in the kitchen.
Made some delicious chicken with potatoes and asparagus, as first read about on Nothingbutknit’s post Monday Minutiae a few weeks ago (can’t seem to link from the phone), and it was so yummy! Will make it again, as soon as our asparagus pops from the ground.
Forgot to stop at the PO while I was out. Who needs more bills anyway?
Here are some knitting progress photos for you so you know you are in the right place!
