Ahhh. That's the sound of me relaxing every day this week. I am taking two weeks of vacation for myself before I start my new position and the days have been very nice. My first client is due to have her baby in about two weeks so I am on call (my first doula gig!) and cannot leave town, though that isn't stopping me from having a great time.

I made yeasty pancakes for breakfast and served them with a friend's home-canned blackberry preserves.

Kitty and I have been spending quality time together cuddling, playing "bird" chase with the feather toy, and surprising each other around the apartment. I nearly died when I saw him balancing on the window ledge that I left open, and again when I watched kitty learn to climb the ladder. Kenobi is a big bag of love and acts more like a 2 year old every day.

Then I got bored and made up my mind to make pizza from scratch in the cast iron pans that I re-seasoned this week. The marinara was leftover from pasta that Carson made last week and was mighty tasty underneath all that gooey mozzarella, peppers, onions and pepperoni. Success!

I've been knitting socks for Carson.

And this afternoon I decided to bake zucchini bread when someone on Freecycle offered up two giant beauties from her garden. I made a plain mini loaf, a loaf with chocolate chips, a loaf with walnuts, and a loaf with walnuts and chocolate chips. And the larger of the two zucchinis is still on my counter top! On the menu for dinner: Baked zucchini stuffed with lentils.

  3. Sounds like a great way to spend your weeks of vacation. I wish you were closer so I could see you and have you teach me all of your amazing talents! Love you!
