Contrary to appearances I did not bike off into the sunset never to appear again. Thought about it……
The bike trip was delightful, three days – 110 miles, good food, great weather, the company of my best friend for life. The Katy Trail has become a favorite of ours, and the small town of Rocheport as well. Eventually I will have a few photos from the trip. I took the Diana camera with me, so it’s the old fashioned process of finishing the roll of film and having it developed.
As I get back into the swing of posting I’ll share my hyperbolic crocheted lichen.
This photo is the same piece of crochet I just boosted the color in Picnik.
I have several recipes I want to share too. I made these chili peanuts and I thought they were terrific, especially sitting on the patio with an ice cold beer. The rest of the family was not all that impressed. Please note that the children were not drinking ice cold beers. Theirs were room temperature (kidding!!) Here is the recipe – try it and see what you think. (I left out the cayenne pepper to suit the family.) I thought it was very clever of me to put them in little individual parchment paper cones like the picture from the recipe. My family was not all that impressed with that either. *sigh*
There has been so much going on lately. So, I plan to make up for my absence. Also I’m working on a few papercuts, and I’d love to make this handmade wrapping paper from A Little Hut. And as much as it saddens me I am no longer able to respond to all the comments. I will try to answer particular questions in the comments, and I will respond to personal emails. I do read every single comment and appreciate the time you take to respond to something I’ve said, but I’ve been racking my brain as to how to have time to visit your blogs and flickrs and to also do my own posting. So far this is the only solution that seems viable.
