Who’s Going to Clean My Kitchen?

The Professor is going to be here at noon with something that needs to go in my oven. This means, sadly, that we will need to be able to find my oven and access it. This is sad because it means I need to get in there and get cleaning.

Right now.

Um… now.

Okay, now.

Ha, you see my problem.

I need to take a picture of these two baby blankets, the one I finished up and the one I’m working on. They both use single crochets and they both operate on the principle of skipping a stitch in some way but whether you chain over the skipped stitch or just crochet twice in one stitch and skip the next has given them a very different feel.

I also need to get some herbs together for the yearly rituals later in the month. I guess I could do that while I have the dog out this morning. Which also needs to be done.

I’m pleased with how the ghost stories are going.  Tonight’s is kind of a dude on its own, I think (makes more sense when you read more than one at once), but I’m really tickled with how the map and the posts work together.

Also, John Lamb, if you are reading this, you should know that there is a character loosely based on you in one of the stories, the one on the 17th.

I think the story on tap for the 20th is my favorite (though the story on the 7th is a close second), though there’s not really a ghost (just a supernatural being) and I was worried that I made him seem too nice, so I brought him back on the 26th to be his true bad self.

Ha, now I’m just chatting to avoid getting dressed and getting to work.

  1. Sorry I generated work, but I do think that your efforts to locate the oven will be rewarded. But no prep is necessary, just heating. So you do not have to clean too much.

  2. I’m hearing George Jones wail “who’s going to clean my spoons? Who’s going to wash my pans?”

    Yes, that’s the way my brain works. Perhaps I’ve said too much.

  3. No; in fact you’re making me feel better, because that’s almost what I was hearing. Only difference is that I was hearing Jim Lauderdale, who might even imaginably sing that.

  4. Holy cow, the yumminess of the steak & ale pie that the Professor made can not be overstated. So delicious.

    So worth cleaning my kitchen over.

    And College Professor, you have to wait until nine. They’re all scheduled to go live at nine p.m.

  5. Speaking of pies, yesterday I made my pumpkin and raisin pie using the miniature giant pumpkin you gave me. It … uh … it tastes kind of like a pie made from a pumpkin not intended for cooking. Not the most concentrated flavor. But you ought to come over and pick up some of it for yourself and the Butcher, just so you’ll have an idea.

    I’ve got about half the flesh left, and I’ll try cooking it down to see if I can heighten the taste, and make some tarts or something.
