Okay…not literally. This is still the Lowcountry, after all. Still, after three glorious days of bright sunshine and 80s, to drop into cold rain and 40 was depressingly ‘wintery’. Tomorrow we shall rebound to 60 and it is all better from there. Before long this long winter shall finally be a memory and we can all bask in the glory of summer.
Cait came by today and we made Red Shrimp Curry for supper…while the teens ordered pizza. Too bad for them, we got all the good stuff 😀 Since Cait surprised me with that meal, the supper I had planned gets pushed back to tomorrow. Mushroom and pepper alfredo… which may not be exactly traditional…but I love the flavor the cashew milk adds to the garlic and spices.
I have the hankering to bake. Something I loved to do and gave up when Reesie was diagnosed with celiacs because I couldn’t find a way to make anything come out ‘right’ with what was available back then and I refused to make something we all couldn’t enjoy. Now there are a lot more options and it is possible to make at least some of my favorites in a GF/vegan friendly version… I really want to give it a go. Maybe next week when the groceries for this month are gathered I can get the ingredients to enjoy playing with some old favorites once more.
Spent some time yesterday working out the final (okay …right this moment final but could still be changed on a whim when I commence, LOL) patterns for the little rocking chair. Some of them I like so much I may very well turn them eventually into clay ‘stamps’ for future use on pieces of pottery. A rather random and ecelectic mix that speaks to my own whimsy and our heritage… a bit of Gullah, a bit of Celtic, some Native American inspired, and a squid….because…well… SQUID.
Now to this week’s FANTASY inspiration for Fantasy Friday… I have reached a turning point in the story, and looking out over a scene rather like this and deciding which way to follow. Where would you go?
