Marking my spot.

Caught up so I'm off to make some chicken salad for DH's lunches this coming week. Also will put on the corned beef w/cabbage, potatoes, & carrots for dinner tonight.

Re: Victoria series; I've watched it all and really enjoyed it. I'm currently watching the tv series on Britbox titled The Royal. It's set in the UK (England I believe) and is about at cottage hospital and staff. Only 3 seasons are available and I've really been enjoying it. Almost at the end of season 3 so hope it will have more seasons in the future.

That is how I used to use the canned corned beef; haven't don't it in many years though.

Wow- that should keep you busy (for a little while?).

The little Korowai that I have been weaving at my class I attend on Mondays, are also for babies who do not survive.
Our class has woven more than a hundred- very sad that there is such a great need.

Well GD had a great time at girl guides but was so tired when she got home, she was in bed before 8:30 & asleep a minute later.

Pearl, I’m glad you had fun at sewing & sounds like you got lots done.

Kaye, I hope that river stays within its Banks

I was looking at some patterns listed in the links & resources section & then got looking at other patterns on the site. I thought this was a cute one.

I'm happy for you at finding a local knitting group. The project HALO sounds really good to be involved in too. They are lucky to have you joining in. I know myself that I was blessed to have found the knitting/crochet groups that I joined. I was seriously becoming somewhat of a recluse prior to getting involved with them.

Well, kids have to wait until Monday to register for school. It got too late by the time they arrived and got things unloaded. They are returning to the school they attended before moving here last summer so will not feel so much like the "new kids". Well the older two anyway. The youngest is in Kindergarten. I think she may be just a little anxious but will settle rather quickly. They are all good students.
I finally visited the LYS today. Happened to pop in while a group was there visiting and working on projects. They generally meet on Thursday evenings but that was canceled this week due to impending storms. I am going to start joining in for sure. I talked to the owner about a project they have going called HALO. They take small baby blankets to give to parents of too early born babies that don't make it home. Like keepsakes so not needed as large as an actual baby blanket....closer to 20"x 20". I ended up with a 13 gallon trash can liner full of yarn. Someone donates the yarn and it is freely given. Perfect for me right now with no yarn budget. I promised to return the yarn reconfigured --- LOL
Off to make bacon, eggs and hashbrowns for supper.

I was going to say that at this time of year the corned beef is less expensive. I just like it so buy it when on sale.
I don't remember my mom ever cooking it nor did she ever cook lamb! Grew up with beef, chicken/turkey, pork chops/roast/ham, canned tuna and canned salmon as the meats oh and occasional venison or quail and trout or bass if my dad went hunting or fishing which he did during the appropriate season.

Probably just a good excuse to eat corned beef and cabbage.

This sounds interesting Sam. We have lots of popcorn and actually have some Nutritional Yeast on hand so ILl give it a try.
Thanks for sharing it.

Makes about 8 cups

1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoons fine sea salt, or more/less to taste
3 tablespoons coconut oil, or enough to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan
1/2 cup popcorn kernels

1. Add the nutritional yeast and salt to a large food storage container(with a lid). Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Place 3-4 individual kernels in the pan. Once the kernels begin to pop, add in the rest of the kernels so that they form a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Cover the saucepan with a lid and give it a shake so that the kernels all get coated with the oil.
3. When the popcorn kernels start popping, give the pan a good shake every 15 seconds or so to help the un-popped kernels fall to the bottom. (This will also help prevent the popcorn from burning.) Once the popping slows down and there are a few seconds between pops, immediately transfer the popcorn to the prepared food storage container. Place the lid on the container, and give it a good shake for 10 seconds to coat the popcorn.
4. Serve warm and enjoy!

Note: Want to customize your nooch popcorn? Feel free to also add in some:
• Freshly-cracked black pepper: So simple, but it kicks the flavor up a big notch!
• Everything bagel seasoning: Always delicious.
• Cayenne: Add a generous pinch of cayenne powder in with the nooch for a subtle kick.
• Parmesan cheese: Not vegan, obviously, but always a winner on popcorn.
• Other seasonings: Taco seasoning, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, Za’atar seasoning, curry powder — whatever sounds good! Seasoning blends are a fun way to jazz up your popcorn.
• Finely-chopped fresh herbs: Basil, thyme, rosemary, cilantro, parsley or even mint can all be delicious!
• Truffle oil: Drizzle a little on the popcorn after it has popped (and before shaking it up with the nooch) and the flavor is unreal.

*I actually highly recommend adding 2-3 times as much nooch. I like as much of it as possible to stick to my kernels, although quite a bit of it naturally falls off.
**If the nooch isn’t sticking, you may also need to use a bit more coconut oil, oryou can try closing the lid on the popcorn completely while it’s cooking (which won’t let the kernels dry out as much, which will help the nooch stick to them better).

NZ attack was terrible.
Also, such a shocking picture of Fale. I'm sure you feel quite heartbroken seeing it.

Hello, Heather!
I am uncertain as to whether we have any Terrorism Laws at all- I think somewhere we had all hoped 'Godzone' might be spared such dreadful a happening.
We probably are guilty of having hoped our isolation might keep us free from what has been happening to others.
I know that it is a dreadful toll on the caring young mother who is at our helm- you can see the agony in her face.
The gun Laws are likely to be toughened at the very least. It has shocked us all that Brenton Tarrant had a Gun Licence, and had been able to purchase the Semi-Automatics he used legally. That to me as a Quaker is of very real concern.

He did not enter a plea when he was in court yesterday- but evidently that is usual with Murder Charges. He showed absolutely no signs of remorse either.

Time will tell.

Tough that you are having such health issues. I, myself would hate to be living and working in Queensland's Climate!
I chose not to live in Australia at all- which of course is where I came to grief with Fale's relatives.
He poor darling is now literally skin and bone.

The shawl is gorgeous gottastch.

Hello all! Haven't been commenting but have been trying to read along and keep up.

With all the snow, we had to "rake" some of the snow off the roof of the garage...basically a curved piece of metal on the end of a telescoping long pole. Now that the rain has come (melting the snow) there are flooding worries. We are fine where we live...on top of a reclaimed gravel pit...up high...excellent drainage.

Since it is no fun to be outside, I finished my shawl wrap/stole from the Building with Lace book #3. It was an enjoyable knit and just when I was starting to get bored, it was time to switch to a new pattern. I'm planning to wear it to my cousin's wedding in early May. My dress has black, red and gray in it...should work.

Now I'm working on a shawl. I purchased the kit at Vogue Knitting Live, when it was here a couple of years ago. The instructions are written and there are charts so if my mind is foggy, I can follow the written directions...I like that.

I planted some cotton seeds in the house a week ago Wednesday. Most have sprouted and are about 3". I hope to be able to keep them going until I can plant outside (mid to late May). I'm hoping to get a little cotton to spin...we shall see.

Prayers for our Kiwi friends. I just cannot understand such hate.
