December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)
I made some Hot and Sour Soup (recipe in my notes), and I made some Apple Streusel Crumb Thingy with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and a recipe from the Pillsbury website. And it was EXHAUSTING. I used to love to cook complicated things, but not right now. All that chopping and prepping, all those dishes, egads!
I just want to grill some meat and veggies. Or eat what I call Single Girl Special: rice with spaghetti sauce and some cheese mixed in.
Or hey, I could go out to eat.
What would like to make? I'd like to start a kimono sweater for which I bought a pattern and handspun, hand-dyed yarn oh, 2 years ago. But it doesn't tell what size needles to use; it just says, "needles of size to achieve gauge." And I've not been able to make myself sit down and swatch to find out what that means.
I have holiday time coming. Then, then I will do it. I will sit by the Christmas Tree and knit.
Oh, that is, if I get the dang tree put up. :)
