Square in a Square

I haven't posted the progress on this in a while.

 Three or four more repeats and then it will be big enough to use as a throw.  It is perfect knitting for my Knitting Group.  I can usually talk and manage this pattern at the same time.  It's also easy enough that I can fix my mistakes when I can't manage doing both at the same time.



The rows have been sewn together and it's almost a quilt top.

Borders are up next.


Me Before You

From the Goodreads website:  "Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A love story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?" 
Finally, a book worth mentioning on the blog.  I've read some real duds lately but this book was great.  I didn't want to put it down.  I'm looking forward to the next one and I will likely read all her other books.

Cowboy Candy

How did I not know about these?  I read about them on a blog and ended up spending some time with Google sorting out a recipe.  It all starts with sliced jalapenos.


I cooked them in a vinegar sugar syrup, put them in jars, and processed them.


Here's one ready for sampling.

We've been adding them to grilled cheese sandwiches.  Just a couple, they are powerful.  I can't wait to try these lovelies over cream cheese with their sweet spicy syrup.




Okra Happens

This is what happens when you go away and leave your okra unpicked for a few days.


Those grocery bags are overflowing.  And if that isn't enough, there's still more out in the garden



Later at night, this little guy came to visit.


He was croaking up a storm.
