I crack myself up! It's been an orange kind of day. Orange is my fav color, so it's also been a fun day.
First, we start with breakfast. I'm joking. I had scrambled eggs Mexican style and apple slices. We're on survival mode because I desperately need to grocery shop. Three people got tortillas with their eggs, I lost out unless you count the cheddar Goldfish I substituted for my "grain."
After breakfast, I goofed off with some more paper piecing. I printed out this pattern by mistake earlier in the week but never threw it away. Paper piecing is violent work. I usually need a seam ripper for the sewing part, but today I only used it to spear paper off the back side. I do not enjoy ripping the paper off. What a mess.
I found this Moroccan-inspired tiny dish at Michaels. The orange Koosh ball was rescued from my son's recent room clean up. I love Koosh balls. Wonder if Bones would love it? I may have to torment play with him later.
Then I went to Jo-Ann's to get another eco-friendly cup. This one is for cold beverages. Guess what color I chose? I used my $5 off coupon, so I'm contributing to saving the environment for a mere $1.05, including Florida sales tax. Here's the little beauty filled with water sitting by a stack o' orange fabric. Yes, I've lost my photo styling mojo.
I moseyed on to the produce market for a little sticker shock. Was winter bad or something?! I found some oranges and nectarines which fit with the orange theme, but how about those green striped heirloom tomatoes? I think they're a Zebra kind or something. They get a bit lighter when ripe, but they never get red. And they're not hard like the green tomatoes we Southerners like to fry. I wonder what they taste like? The other tomatoes were $40 a pound, so I went with the local, organic versions.
And finally, don't you think my daughter should clean her fish tank? A little murky, I'd say. Actually, this is one of several containers of shrimp heads I'm making shrimp stock out of. Lovely, huh? I wish you could smell the aroma in my house right now. I may have cats lining up at the door. I'm making shrimp risotto and spinach salad for dinner. Tonight's dinner will probably go over like a screen door in submarine for a few family members. At least there will be leftovers for the kitties.
Happy Friday everyone. I think it may be time for a screwdriver.
