The Hummers

20141022_103148

Are fighting over the feeder again. It’s my daily soap opera. I eat breakfast and watch the hummingbirds fight over the sugar water. I eat lunch and watch the hummingbirds fight over the sugar water. I walk by the window and, well, you see where I’m going with this.

I never knew how much entertainment I would receive from a little hummingbird feeder and some sugar water.

The Canning Continues

Just because it is fall and nearly Halloween does not mean that the canning stops around here. :) I am still making apple butter. Really it is just too easy to work my way through a basket of “not quite nice” apples and plop them in the crockpot for a nice batch of apple butter.

I really liked the apple jam I made when Lauren was here. So while I was making other apple things yesterday, I made another batch.

Boy, that apple jam.  It is just quite the thing.  I like the jam so much better than apple butter.  I’m so glad that Buni mentioned how she liked apple jam and would love to have a jar.  This had been on my list and it was the perfect impetus to make some.

Pumpkin Scones

I was in the mood for pumpkin scones after a friend kept posting on about his search for the pumpkin scones from Starbucks. I happened to spot a pumpkin scone at a local Starbucks and I decided to try it. Let’s just say I wasn’t impressed.

My actual comment was: “I can do better.”

So, I made some pumpkin scones using this recipe. I did alter the icing recipe. I really like maple syrup and powdered sugar for an icing.

Blue Dutch Bunny

I had a friend commission me to knit a blue Dutch rabbit for her daughter for Christmas. Since I had some practice knitting rabbits, I decided to design my own rabbit while I was making it. This is the result of my work. A nice little chubby blue Dutch rabbit.

I knit the body twice because the first time, the head was too wee. I adjusted the pattern a bit after knitting the second body as well. So, this little rabbit is very unique.

I also decided to use some felt to make the eyes. I blanket stitched the eye down and then added a little white french knot to give it some dimension. The nose needed a little dimension too, so I stitched it in some pink.

Pattern: My own and coming soon
Yarn: Cascade Heritage in Navy Blue and Snow
Needle: US 0000 Hiya Hiya Steel DPNs

Chicken Stock

20141015_141338

Yes. I made more chicken stock. What can I say? You just can’t beat the home made stock. I save the ends of my vegetables when cooking and freeze them. Once I have a full bag, I add in chicken bones to make chicken stock. I cook all of the items together with some extra garlic, thyme, oregano, and a good dose of salt to top it all off. Each time I make it the stock is a little different. It is always good, always rich and delicious, but the flavors are always a little different.
