Fingerless Gloves

Fall is almost here and the change in temperature has prompted some knitting.  Much to my mothers delight I actually made something! A pair of fingerless gloves.

Please note that it is very difficult to photograph one's own hand.

Especially when people invite themselves into the photo.

Once I return to New York I probably will have a while to wait to wear these new knitted gloves but since its been hovering in around twenty all summer my new accessories are perfect for evenings.

I'm also gearing up for the trip back and preparing myself for the long car ride with my mother (I love you mom!) and grandmother. By preparing I mean downloading music so I can pretend I'm traveling alone, possibly to somewhere interesting.

Accepting the Kale

Here are a few haiku about my newfound appreciation of kale:

Accepting the kale,
Even enjoying the kale,
With olive oil.

Kale is magical,
It might not taste magical,
But trust me it is.

As the date of departure from Newfoundland draws nearer I have began the semi annual list making and I've found my lists are vague about what I actually want to pack; under the entry pants one of the items is categorized as my "boring pants".

Here is a haiku to describe my current situation:

Organized at first,
But look a little closer,
You'll see the chaos.

Some Pasta

You might have noticed that in my selection of pictures from last month one was of some pasta hanging out to dry.  I'm not sure why but one of my goals for this summer was to make pasta and after making some and realizing its not hard at all, I decided that I could make more.  

Here is the pasta drying on the rack.  I chose spare my blog's many readers (my parents) and not show a picture of the mess I made.

This is the pasta about to go into the pot.

This is it in the pot, look how well I documented every aspect of the process!

Here is the table all set! 

Special thanks to my mom for cooking it up and for letting me use so many eggs!

I have also been writing a boatload of haiku lately but I'm not sure how to integrate them into blog, once I figure out how, I will make it happen.
