June is over, and this has been a busy one for us--Tim's defense and graduation, the end of term, moving out here--but it did seem that June lasted a long time. I hope the summer lasts as long!
Lead with the knitting!
The only thing I've been knitting on consistently is Citron, and it is growing!
I don't really cook fancy things, and I'm not a great cook by any means (that would be Tim), but I did spend much of Friday making this:
The only thing I didn't do was catch and clean the guts out of the crabs--I made the stock from scratch. It turned out very well and I think the stock needed to be a bit stronger. But I was very pleased that I made something that didn't suck.
There is a gang of four guys that come and hang out every so often. Here's the leader.
Last night we watched "Old Man and a Gun" with Robert Redford which was fine (not great, but not violent and not disturbing, so a good calm movie) (about a bank robber).
I'm reading a really interesting book called "Magic for Liars". It is interesting. The premise is sort of along the lines of "what if Kinsey Milhone investigated a murder at Hogwarts" and there you go. A teacher at a school of magic is murdered and a PI named Ivy goes to investigate--she is hired because her twin is a teacher at the school. Anyway--it is good and there are lots of suspects and the title comes from the fact (I think) that Ivy, who does not have magical powers, suggests that she does have them in order to get to the bottom of the case. Or she might be an unreliable narrator, I'm not sure. Anyway, it might be a fun read for summer if you like things like that (note: the magic school is nothing, physically, like Hogwarts, and students take things like English and physics.
Let's end with a sunset.
As one does. We've had some amazing ones this week.
