All the dark clouds on Thursday brought only a little rain–three tenths. My polyurethane brush and I are becoming best friends.😝 The man in the cabinet shop has been sawing, sanding, nailing–making cabinets way faster than I can apply the polyurethane. We finished the pantry doors and couldn’t be more pleased!
I baked a cream cheese pound cake Thursday and sampled a slice (who am I kidding, I sampled several slices)–I love that cake–and that’s the reason I don’t bake it often!
My latest knitting project is off to its new home and here are some photos of projects I did over Christmas–
Our neighbor lost his battle with covid Wednesday night. Two people have died in recent days in this small community here in southeast Arizona. Our friends Ralph and Angie continue their struggle with this disease–good days interspersed with lots of bad days.
Saturday night Dan and Louanne joined us for a low key, pleasant dinner of spaghetti, good salad dressed with Ina Garten’s Green Salad Vinaigrette, probably the best salad dressing I’ve ever made! and artisan bread. Dan received Ina Garten’s latest cookbook as a Christmas gift and he introduced us to that delicious salad dressing. Dessert was the cream cheese pound cake I made earlier in the week and fresh strawberries–Fry’s had strawberries on sale and they are quite good for this early in the season.
Sunday the Cowboy worked in the cabinet shop a bit and I was a knitting bum although I did apply polyurethane to two drawer fronts plus I made lunch.
It’s winter even in Arizona! Sunday was a day of rain squalls and wind. Monday and Tuesday our forecast is for rain and snow with extremely cold temps–on Tuesday night it could be 12 degrees! Brrrrr! As I publish this post, it is snowing/raining horizontally!
