me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Sock with completed foot -- but very lonely ...

... and it will probably remain lonely for a while as I'm not inspired to cast on for a mate. I'm not so sure I like the way it fits and feels, though I do like the look. Without consciously planning it that way, I used the colors of my high school ... which, by the way, is preparing our thirtieth reunion , as we speak.

I prepared another winning recipe from Vegan Planet last night: Tempeh Simmered with Tomatoes and Sauerkraut. It made me feel a strange cosmic kinship to my departed Lithuanian peasant ancestors! As suggested, we ate it with coarse Rye bread (store bought), but I was thinking how perfect it would have been to have some of the Moneikis Bakery Lithuanian "black bread" from my childhood. Now that was some serious stuff. This was bread that needed to be chewed -- and thoroughly, I might add.

... but, I'm getting off the subject. Just as I was cleaning up, over popped cute Jamie on an errand for Gretchen. He stepped in the door, and immediately "mmmm, what smells good?" I pulled the leftovers back out of the fridge and he dug in. His German background made the sauerkraut a shoo-in, but he had not tried tempeh before. He gave the dish a positive review as well.

    That's the problem with sock knitting! All that work and since you don't like it, you can't even give it to someone!
