    Extra knitting time is always a good thing, but I’m sorry you’ve been unwell.

    I have to start sprouting seeds again. I have that same screen, and the same bag of seeds from my co-op… xo

  3. I’m so glad you are feeling better… that clean up after feeling unwell is always a doozie, isn’t it? Happy Monday, and I hope the week goes smoothly!

    Looks like you have a budding artist on your hands!
    Glad you are feeling better. This has been a winter of stomach bugs!

    yummm, now there’s hummus on my to-do list today. Episode 4 was wonderful, so sad though there’s been tears to my eyes the last two episodes. I sat with my mending to watch it then picked up my knitting when it came time to darn the socks! Sprouts are by my window too 🙂

    I so loved that movie. The Dames are the best! Did you bawl like a baby with Episode 4? I was irrationally angry after that one. How dare they?

  7. yes! loved best exotic and the dames never disappoint!

    I’m so glad you guys are feeling better – it’s so awful when you’re sick.
    I’m dying to know what happens in Downtoun Abbey… not sure when we’ll get to see it here in Australia.

    I’d love to start sprouting – do you have any recommendations about how to start and what to start sprouting first? I hope you guys are all feeling much better by now!

      Mountain Rose Herbs has lots of great options for seeds and the mesh screens are so helpful (although you could likely rig something up from the hardware store). I started with alfalfa, radish, and broccoli. The alfalfa sprouted fast and everyone loves it! I think I may be alone enjoying the radish and broccoli although they will add great flavour to a salad. I want to track down some bean and clover seeds to try next! My only advice would be to dive it – I’d mulled over it for a while before trying it and realising how easy it is. Began on Saturday and enjoyed on Wednesday! xoR

  14. Bracken just saw your little one’s picture when I was looking at your post and pointed and said “baby.” 🙂
