Stitching... Been stitching some smalls just for fun, nothing to share just yet. I've been wanting to try 40 ct. linen so I got my rear-gear over to my LNS and picked up a small piece. I chose Lakeside Linens 40 ct. Palomino, and found it easy to work with, really quite nice. If you're also wondering about 40 ct., go ahead and try it ~ don't fear the linen lol!
Cooking... Tried a new pot roast recipe in the crockpot, this is now my go~to recipe, dump-it easy, pantry friendly, wonderful flavor, f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s. I've been known to crockpot overnight while we sleep and then set it to warm the next morning, works well when you want to have a mid-day early dinner. Seriously, is there anything better on a lazy day or chilly night than pot roast? Here's leftovers from the microwave.
I skipped browning the meat and thickening the gravy, go figure:)
Note: My 4 lb. roast took a full 9 hours to become fork tender, so let 'er cook a good long while if ya try it!

Critters... What I thought was a hail storm hitting the house at 2 a.m. was a huge raccoon perched on the skinny minny handrail at the front steps, clawing away on the cedar siding. Very weird to see him (or her) up there digging for gold, I mean what was the point exactly? We've lavished him and his furry friends with a very long and cozy woodpile, he's gotta dig on the house to thank us? He (or she) fled the scene when the porch light came on, good thing cause I was about to begin a very loud and serious tongue lashing! More than once I've been in the driveway at 3 a.m., in my bare feet, in my jammies, screaming at the retarded crowing rooster next door, so my middle of the night shenanigans wouldn't really surprise the neighbors. Noah's Ark meets Green Acres, you get the idea:)
Thx again for visiting, as always I've been enjoying following your blogs, see ya next time!
