I got up early–not a small achievement for a hardcore night owl. The day really started out with some promise, with aromatic breakfast. Oh my, were they good. Warm. Fluffy. Sweet. I want to go the simple, healthy route next…with pureed delicata or acorn squash next.
Who else is noticing a distinctive chill in the air and frost on the ground signifying winter is here to stay? It sure brings out a craving for the warm comfort of a seafood chowder. Sweet and savory broth envelopes winter vegetables and succulent prawns in a creamy blanket that carries just the slightest whisper of heat to remind me of warmer days. This quick chowder is easy to prepare…sure to be the next staple in the kitchen repertoire!
Lunch with Kristin at Toomies right new door was delightful.
It was a great day to refuel and be energized. Do you spy a hat? Why yes. You do. The duckling yellow has drastically transformed to welcoming, soothing hand-dyed lavender petals–Spring aromas come alive in winter–modeled by my good friend Pam.
Nothing works to inspire creativity quite like a stroll in the high desert.
A visit to downtown on a slow day carries me away in mind, body, and soul.
Timelessness lives on this town. It’s a magical and enchanting land.
A beautiful place that is blessed with breath-taking wonders
…even though I was stuck with a $32 parking ticket.
It has been a really long day after working the concession booth, at the high school’s choir concert tonight. I’m so ready for some fiber play 😀 How was your day? What’re some of your great encounters?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
