Now that the holidays are over, I can set my sights on those projects I've been putting off, like making another batch of beer and trying a hand at cheese. I already have a batch of Limoncello maturing. And over the holidays made a pretty good maple syrup based Kahlua. I've also been going through my library of cookbooks and finding old world recipes to try. Tomorrow the forecast is for snow. If we are snowed in, I might just cook a duck for dinner. Or I'll make a huge batch of chili. Maybe I'll do both. All the while trying to finish up knitting a baby blanket. Popular knitters opinion says I have 2 rows to go... I say maybe 25 or 30. I want it to be long enough to wrap up the baby.
Over vacation I barely touched my banjo. It was not propped up next to my chair, but tucked away, safe from the holiday madness. Tonight, while the middle one read to me and the little one knit on her bookmark, I quietly practiced. It was one of those Ah-Ha moments.
