This Scatterday post is brought to you by the letter
When it comes to cooking, I always let my friends know that it's my dear hubby who does the grocery shopping and food prep at our house. I eat like a queen because he's a fabulous cook! He can make even the most mundane dish taste special, usually because he knows which spices (Penzey's brand is his favorite) will enhance the dish. This tuna tetrazzini was delicious!
The bowl my tetrazzini was served in is one of the few kept pieces I inherited from my grandmother. During our pre-move downsizing last year, I constantly reminded myself that I can't take it with me, nor did I want my children stuck figuring out what to do with my stuff. When it came to Grandma's dishes, I saved only two decorative bowls, both of which I use regularly, and her instant coffee jar. The rest of the dishes, including a lovely cake plate, swan milk glass, Miss America compote and such... well, I took photographs of each piece, and either sold it on Ebay or donated it. Tough to do, but I have no regrets. It's really nice to live simply, with fewer things, and I think of Grandma every time I use the pieces I kept.
Tiny - Twinkle
This is pretty lame, but I was desperate to find something to photograph for "tiny." I hoped to come across one of the little toads that come out at night in this area, but couldn't find a one to be cooperative in the evening chill. So, a twinkling in the night sky is the best I could do.
On Valentine's Day, while our granddaughter has been visiting, we went to Universal Studios, Orlando, to the Islands of Adventure theme park. That's where we found the cool "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" attractions (And don't I have some great pictures of other alphabet letters I could share!). While at the park, it was the perfect occasion to find terrified people who took a thrilling ride on one of many roller coasters. Here are some brave people (including my own family members... except me!) who rode "The Incredible Hulk Coaster."
Threads - Turquoise
You might call some of these threads turquoise or aqua, but they're pretty when they're all together, aren't they? They range from: two jumbo cones of YLI thread - some of what I won last year; my all-time favorite Aurifil thread, with a backup spool at the ready on the left; and up front there's Mettler; Metrosene; Molynecke (what's with all the "M" brands of threads?); some good 'old Coats and Clark Dual Duty; and a spool of Gutermann hand quilting thread. Guess I've got all thread contingencies covered, huh?!
This was another tough letter/topic challenge. When are they going to get easier, Cinzia? Linda
