Finished the knitting of Sleeves

It's been awhile.. Almost 2 years... On and off... But the knitting part of  Sleeves is finally done!!! ( Sleeves is like a cross between a shawl and a shrug- meant to be worn over tank tops... And I love tank tops) just have to weave in the ends and block. I should be able to wear it for Thanksgiving!!!!

So... Steampunk

I have to admit, I've been sort of curious about it for awhile now.  The only thing I could say I saw was Wild, Wild West with Will Smith some years back.  There are people on NerdWars and Nerdopolis who are really into it - even going to cosplay events.  I love the "look" the gears, the spats, hats, granny boots.  I like the gearwork creatures, the zeppelins.  So when curious..... I checked a book out of the library:

 


30 stories.  Some were just plain weird, some were so short I didn't have a clue what just happened.  I'm not saying the book was bad - but I gave it three stars because it just wasn't my thing.  Still love the "look" though.

Lunch the other day...

Baked a piece of Salmon with olive oil, tarragon, thyme, dill and lemon. Topped with Tzatziki sauce.  Half an acorn squash, baked with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and chili.  Stuffed with a blend of brown rice, mixed veg, peppers and green onions. 

Tried a Recipe from the Chew

Made Carla Hall's Midnight Chile Beef and Sweet potatoes Enchiladas.  Used ancient grain wraps instead of the corn tortillas.  Also think my sweet potatoes were too small.  But OMG Sooooo goood!

A Finished Knitting Project!!!

Curt has something we call Vacation Brain.  His frontal lobe seems to shut down, along with much of his higher cognitive functions.  I am not looking forward to his retirement...  Anyway,  recently the Angie keeps saying he's on the Struggle Bus.  I thought this was funny - then I saw this pattern and had to make it for him!
