*Wednesday is the day of the weekly Visit With The Vegetables.
*You never know what you're gonna find.
*I found tomatoes.
*I found onions.
*I found mild jalapeno peppers
*I already had some garlic left over from last week.
*There was really only one thing I could do under those circumstances...
I made salsa! What other choice did I have, really?
*I'll admit, I had my doubts on this one. But, I forged ahead and processed it anyway.
*Even though it didn't look quite how I'd thought it might.
*While it was in the water bath, I tasted the little bit left over in the pot.
*Don't ask about the cost per jar. I think we have established that this is not necessarily always a cost-effective way to stockpile spicy condiments.
*I'm glad I'm an early riser.
*Today was another day where I got to look at men on ladders outside my living room window.
*Could have been a disaster of epic proportions had they shown up while I was yelling at the mean Wii Fit lady.
*Scary middle aged woman screaming curse words at a cartoon lady in a leotard.
*Still working on the building. Wish I'd known that in time to close the shades.
*Hate to do that right in their faces...
*Plus one of the shades is broken so I took it down on Monday and didn't get around to replacing it yet.
*They got to watch me make salsa. I'm certain they were awestruck by the whole process.
*Or at least by the god awful mess I made in the kitchen...
*Hey! Guess what else I did? It's amazing!!!
I finally finished the socks!!!!
*Yes, it was quite a show for the dudes on the ladder.
*Actually, I think having an audience kind of inspires me.
*Not really. I just didn't dare to move around too much for fear of startling anyone on the ladder.
*Knitting was one of the few options left to me once the salsa was done and I was settled on the sofa.
*I finally made a decision regarding my next reading adventure.
*I thought and thought. But just couldn't seem to settle on anything for the longest time.
*Finally, I decided to return to my good buddy Simon R. Green. I knew he had another series out there and figured it couldn't hurt to give it a try.
*So I downloaded a copy of The Man with the Golden Torc (Secret Histories, Book 1).
*Not as good as this one: Eight from the Nightside Series ~ COMPLETE 8 Book Set ~ (Novels of the Nightside, 1 - 8).
*But still pretty darned entertaining.
*It's a short series so I'll probably work my way through it fairly quickly but that is what summer is for, right?
*Once I finished the socks, I was so filled with the love of all things knitting that I started a scarf.
*It's an easy one, but I hate to let myself get lulled into a false sense of security.
*The socks were easy, too.
*I started them in December.
*That is just sad.
*Won't think about that. Will focus on finished socks.
*And reading material that meets my expectations.
I was right. It doesn't look like that much in print. But it felt like a lot of work when I was doing it so I'm still going to pat my own back vigorously. I might even reward myself. I could get the next book in the aforementioned series.
And some corn chips. You know...so I can test the salsa again.
