That is just SO NOT FUNNY.
My car started, which was good. And when I pulled into the driveway at the studio, Bubbalee was in her solar house, waiting for me? waiting for the sun to get in position to give her some heat? or both.
I was relieved to see her, and to know that she made it through the night.
The bad news was that the cold water in the kitchen sink was frozen SOLID.
Good opportunity to clean under the sink, but a heater put in there did nothing to solve the problem.
So I called DH for help, and he came with a butane torch, and thawed it out in less than 5 minutes. The pipe coming up through the floor, was about 6 inches from the cellar window, and that's right where it froze. I am not complaining, it is the first time the water has frozen at the studio, in the five years that I have been there.
But in spite of the cold, the sunshine in the studio was brilliant.
See what I mean?
Every day I thank God for this. For the chance to BE here, and WORK here. I am so lucky.
And so grateful.
I might grumble on occasion, about this or that annoyance.
But pay no attention. I am as happy as a person has any right to be.
And I love that you all come by, and share it with me. Cause that's how it feels sometimes, when I read your comments. It feels like you are here.
You encourage me, laugh with me, and oft times come up with a new perspective that I didn't even consider. That's a bonus!
I just noticed that I have 171 followers. That is incredible to me. When I hit 200, it's time for a rug giveaway. A Solmate Sock rug? A 'Walkin' on Sunshine' rug? A cottage look fabric rug? An Adirondack Lodge rug? A blue jean rug?
You tell me. Gotta have a plan.
Now I've told you that I am on a soup kick, and I just made another one. This may be my all time favorite.
I used to make all kinds of 'mystery' soups, all meat based. But since I haven't eaten meat in almost 2 years, a good soup without meat is what I'm talking about.
So I made this lentil soup with sweet potatoes and spinach, that I found over at Two Peas and Their Pod. You can find the recipe HERE. I LOVE this soup. It rocks! I ate TWO bowls for lunch.
And I am having it for lunch tomorrow, too. The best part, it's EASY to make. I love that part.
I finished the blue jean warp, one 2x3, two 2x4's, and one 2x6. Done.
Then I put another warp on.
I often put multi colored warps on, but if you have 18 spools on of varied colors, and then you use the same spools on each section of the warp, even though it is multicolored, it still consists of 18 colors repeated several times.
But today, I got out the box of partial spools, leftovers from other projects. I put 18 spools on the spool rack, and then as each of them run out, I randomly grab another. And I do the same for every single section. So THIS is really a multicolored warp.
You don't exactly know what you're going to get. But it is usually good.
I love this part. It is just joyful.
Thirty below zero. You can't touch me.
Cause this is PRICELESS.
