Brief and random

It’s raining the proverbial cats and dogs out there and it’s a holiday week. Hooray! I’m looking forward to having four days off with very little to do – aside from eating copious amounts of turkey tomorrow and hosting an open house soap sale on Friday. I foresee lots of knitting and movie-watching and maybe a bit of sewing.  Oooh, maybe I’ll finish spinning up the wool/mohair I got for my birthday!

In other news: I learned a new word yesterday: spatchcocking. It’s not as naughty as it appears – go ahead and Google it. I’m going to have to give it a try soon.

And: I have to reiterate how great it is to work next to the Pike Place Market. While the throngs of tourists annoy me with their sidewalk-clogging ways, it is awesome to have such ready access to fresh produce, meats, and seafood. Last night I picked up a couple of rainbow trout for dinner and they were mmmmm-delicious with a light breading and pan-fried.

I’ll leave you with this little bit of cuteness:

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
