I am doing more things that I love to do, like making soup.
This one is quinoa pesto vegetable. I saw it on Two Peas and Their Pod blog, theirs was quinoa vegetable soup,and then of course, I messed with it, and it became something with a whole new twist.
But I had this half container of kale pesto, well, you know how that goes.
I liked it a lot, and I think you could use any veggies you wanted. And anything with pesto is ok in my book.
L, the cat hater, has finished with the "cat house" for the boys outside. You remember, Nuff (Enough) and Nexxie (Next), who came to the studio as strays, who were found a NICE home a few miles away, then left and came BACK to the studio, where they have now taken up permanent residence?
They sleep in the barn, but they really like the porch. In good weather, they sleep in their respective rocking chairs, but for cold weather, L made them something much nicer.
First, she dragged this wooden box down from the attic. She painted it white.
You can see it has 4 windows, and a door with a flap.
Only a real cat HATER would put their initials on their house. Just sayin.
The whole thing is insulated with the sheets of blue insulating board.
And there is a back door, because no cat will take up residence in it without an escape route.
The cord you see is for the heating pad.
Yes, you heard it right.....there is a cat heating pad, it brings the cat's body up to its proper temperature.
They love it.
It even has a little "upstairs balcony".
My question, which has so far been ignored, is what would she have built them if she actually LIKED them????? I can't even imagine.
I have been putting a warp on the Schacht, for some ruanas.
It took me twice as long as usual, but that's ok. I'm a work in progress.
Today I wove, and for the first time, it felt right.
I was loving every minute of it, but after a while, I had to admit that enough was enough. The old neck was complaining, and the new me listened.
Nothing wrong with half days, nothing wrong with a nap on the couch with the heating pad and Roy.
Nothing at all.
Just a new normal. That's all.
