I was looking around the internet and came across this blog where she mentioned the smitten kitchen.

I had never heard of it but it sounded pretty amazing so I checked it out. It is way cool. I found this recipe for “babka” which I had never heard of either, but it was described to be so tasty that I had to make it–IMG_1273
And even though I misread the directions and added way to much butter–it was still very rich and delicious. (those are chocolate chips in the pic not raisins).
I also found this amazing junk store that is so cheap–and I spotted buttons!!! I may venture back over today…or drive the 20 miles out to “big” junk store in Bristol that is suppose to be really awesome too.
The shawl I am knitting in mindless garter stitch is what I have been working the most and it should be finished by the end of this weekend. I will post pics then…
Meanwhile, I caught my kitties snuggled up and sleeping the other day. ..

I worry about the environment. I cloud gaze often. I dream of the sea. Doodler. Waitress. Nomad of sorts. River swimmer. I have a small westie named Lulu that I sleep with like a stuffed animal. And maybe one day they will say, "and who was she really anyway?"
