I've spent a somewhat lazy Sunday just playing with applique in the Sweat Shop and watching cable TV re-runs. I really wanted to make another recipe from the Susan Branch cookbook tonight, but about a half hour before I was going to start fixing dinner, I realized I should have defrosted something. ARGH! Luckily I had bought some pizza dough at Trader Joe's the other night, so I had a fall back plan! I hope to have a photo of a recipe to share with you tomorrow though.
In the meantime, if you haven't entered the giveaway for the Susan Branch cookbook yet, please leave me a comment on yesterday's blog post.
And, speaking of giveaways, if you haven't visited my friend Eileen and entered her giveaway yet, get on over there and wish her a happy blogiversary!
Finally, here's one thing I did today that I CAN show you. I know it doesn't look like much now . . .
but someday it will be a Halloween tree! I dug up a dead bush and trimmed down the smaller branches and dead leaves. Hubby was kind enough to take it out back and spray it black for me. Of course, I still have to find a pot or something to stick it in, but I'm happy I found something to use this year--last year I never did find a suitable "tree" and had to make do without one.
Finally, I'm happy to say the flies were no heavier today than they are on any "normal" day. Maybe yesterday they could smell those ribs cooking half the afternoon. Or maybe it was the weather. Whatever it was, I'm glad they seem to have found somewhere else to hang out today!
