On Friday I made a big pot of borscht with beef, onions, potatoes, and two different kinds of beets. Unfortunately my guests didn't much care for beets and it was not a huge success. But they did like the homemade bread with fennel, so it all turned out OK. And Steve brought me flowers. Thank you, Steve. I am enjoying the flowers today as I eat borscht for lunch. I like borscht, actually.
The photos in the background are by Bruce. They cover one wall of the kitchen, and I get to enjoy a changing display 24/7.
At OLLI Sandy brought in her week's homework for tablet weaving class. She finished the entire band she warped up last week. It's gorgeous! Great color choices and perfect selvedges. She's now a certified tablet weaver (as well as an accomplished basket maker).
Ta da! I just finished registering online for Complex Weavers Seminars. It went smoothly. Trouble is, I wish I could have signed up for more than one seminar for each time slot. Sad face.
