Erin Go Braugh

Happy St. Patrick's Day! When a bunch of Americans celebrate the myth of a British man saving the Irish people, sanctified by the Catholics, by drinking to excess.

Made Irish Soda Bread with green butter, apples and cheddar with the Coop kids today. Makes me want to make homemade butter always. I wonder if it would be cheaper? Prolly not, because we'd just eat more butter.

Thinking of you, Krissy. It would be your birthday today.

Thinking of you, Pap Pap. Gonna finish off the night with a toast and a shot just for you. We miss you.

Finding my Voice

I've been making stuff. Lots of Christmas embroidery and plush foods and crosstitch, a needle-felted anatomically correct heart for my Valentine, Death Kitty (Ask not for whom the kitty meows, he meows for THEE!), a pear and a table centerpiece, and some others that have not been given yet, so I can't say what they are...

I want to get Picklelady Farm going on Etsy, but I am looking for something that will truly consume me, that I will love even though it is terribly hard work.

Hurry, inspiration, and don't leave me once you're here!
