We had another crazy weather week, with temps in the 70s early in the week and back down to something more seasonal later in the week. In addition, we had torrential rain, tornado warnings, and snow. But enough about politics…

I took my prayer shawl to church on Sunday where two of the holiest ladies I know prayed over it. It’s on its way to its recipient now – hopefully it will bring her and her family some comfort.

This warm weather has our yard thinking it’s spring!

Dr. M’s clever arrangement of tomatoes (from Misfits Market of course) – they’ve ripened nicely on the edge of that cutting board.

I ordered this yarn on November 30th, but the first order was apparently lost and it took a while to sort it out. So glad to finally have it! I was planning to use to make more Christmas baubles – I guess I just didn’t know for which Christmas.

Dr. M used more veggies from our box to make me a fabulous chicken soup. YUM!

I posted this on Instagram & FB talking about how I had solved the problem of flipping a fried egg, but I wasn’t exactly clear. I just crack the egg into the pan, add salt & pepper, and then put a lid on it & let it cook. Works great! I do have to be careful to not overcook it or I won’t have a runny yolk like I like it – I cook it on medium & check it frequently.
We wore red to work to raise awareness of heart disease. I’m in the upper left of the photo, wearing jeans & a solid red shirt.

We had a cute little snow and I finished A Gentleman in Moscow and I LOVED it. I highly recommend it (but my feelings won’t be hurt if you don’t like it – it’s not everyone’s cup of tea).
Dr. M made another excellent meal with our box ingredients. That cubed stuff is celery root. Celery root! I had no idea that was even a thing. It sort of reminded us of eggplant in texture. We also had spaghetti squash and pasta sauce with veggie crumbles.
