I finished the tiger-eye necklace a few days ago; the big pendant is one of my purchases from the vendors at the San Francisco meeting.

Tiger eye and glass.
Last night I made three. The first two -- one using another San Francisco purchase -- are designed to be worn together; the third happened because I cut the wire too short the first time around and didn't want to waste it. Two more small pictures. )

Busy day

Oof. Today I picked up groceries, traded in $30 of small change, did a supernumerary load of laundry in the hope (not fulfilled) of unwrinkling some pants that got in a slightly-too-hot dryer last time, cleaned the kitchen -- including the floor -- and parts of the bathroom, vacuumed, dusted and polished the bedroom, cooked dinner, and did a pile of ironing.

I think I won't bother again with catfish still on the bone. I did with it pretty much what I always do with catfish -- baked it in foil with a squirt of lemon and a good sprinkle of ginger and black pepper -- and then scraped it off the bones in the kitchen, but I still got a mouthful or two of spiky ribs.

I'm not clear why the "steam in bag" package of frozen broccoli, carrots and cauliflower was so insistent that it had to be thoroughly cooked. People eat those raw all the time, don't they?

Reading, writing, plant photography, and the small details of my life, with digressions into science and computing.
