I am a happy girl tonight. First off, I finished my Bearfoot socks. They are so nice and cosy.
That's Brodie lounging against me and my new socks. Silly dog.
I just did a simple k6, p2 rib on these with 64 stitches. Just my plain old standard sock. I forget what color this Bearfoot is, sorry.
And this also made me happy....
That was my snack tonight. Doesn't it look just wonderfully yumm? Oh it was so good! I was in the grocery store and smelled, yes smelled, these strawberries as I was walking by. I couldn't resist. See strawberries are my favorite fruit, but here in Michigan, good berries can be very hard to get this time of year. In the summer our local berries are so delicious! In the winter, when they are imported from all over, they usually have no taste. These were awesome! I quick whipped up a batch of my great grandma's shortcake, and woo hoo, good snack tonight! I'm telling you, this stuff is awesome! If you would like the recipe, send me an email.
Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite desserts and brings back lots of great memories. We ate it a lot when I was a kid, but only during strawberry season. I picked strawberries for my grandparents every summer. They had a farm and peddled eggs, the berries and other fresh produce in "town". I had so much fun picking them and then riding along on the "egg route". I remember getting paid a nickel for every quart I picked back then. I thought I was rich! We lived right next door to my Gram and Gramps and I was very close to them. They have been gone over 20 years now and I still miss them like crazy. Nothing like a good strawberry to take me down memory lane.
Next up: I need to work on that Lopi sweater. Crud, by the time I finish it, it will probably be spring. Figures.
