I spent the weekend in a flurry of domestic fury. After a nice happy hour with my labmates on Friday evening at The Newsroom downtown I went into full crafty mode.
I picked strawberries on Saturday morning at the Bauer Berry Farm- I got 12 lbs.!
They were delicious- and particularly good this year due to a cool wet spring! I crushed lots of them sugar with lemon juice and froze them and the others I am eating- well, I'm eating the ones I didn't turn into strawberry daiquiris with a recipe from Big R. I'm planning on cooking the heck out of one of the frozen batches tomorrow so I can put them in a cake for Wednesday (one of my labmates is defending on Tuesday and we are having a lab celebration on Wednesday).
I also found some of my old beads and made myself a black and white necklace and earrings- it is cheaper than buying them that's for sure! The beading isn't as hard as I thought it might be and I love the jewelry.
I ALSO finished the first of the baby projects- no pics of it yet as I'm not giving away sneak peeks until they are given...
Hope you are all well- I love reading comments or emails!
