The plan was that the scrap book album of our summertime vacation was to take two weeks to complete, the girls and I were to devote those two weeks to getting it done, period, finis. The project is still spread upon the entire surface of my dining room table. It seems the girls did not "have the vision" I had...sounds familiar...so I trudge on, almost at the finish line though. Today I worked on it for the greater part of the day.
I also made some soup with fresh corn and potatoes. First, I sauteed shallots and garlic in olive oil, tossed in some chives, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper along with the red potatoes, and then added chicken stock pulled from the freezer. The fresh corn cut from the cob was added after the potatoes were almost tender. It will make a delicious supper.
I received a letter today. This friend and I continue to write to each other, we have been doing this for close to twenty years.
Do you see the date? She began the letter in May and just discovered it unmailed, in late July! She just continued on writing and sent it along with a knitting pattern for a scarf.
