This week has been pretty busy workwise and after workwise. I have an ad in the local paper for the fashionista’s vehicle. Since she will likely not be returning to our fair city anytime soon, I made the decision to sell the car. It is 13 years old. It has some issues. I priced it very low. My phone has been ringing off the hook all week. People have come to look at it. It has always started, it has always run, but it has some issues. I think I mentioned that I priced it pretty low. Each time I have answered the phone, I have given them every conceivable detail about the car. The general public seems to think that it should either be perfect or I should fix it up and then sell it, but for the same low price, or I should be willing to give it away. Saturday is the last day for the ad. I am trying very hard to keep my sense of humor and believe that someone will come along and just buy it as it is for a reasonable price. Yes, I am apparently crazy.
I am knitting away on the second Whitby sock. I think I have found a pattern that will be great for my organic cotton. I got out the Harvard Stripe cardigan that has been languishing in the knitting basket and have been working on it. It is knit up to the armholes in one piece and then divided. I only have about 3 inches to go on the back and then do the two fronts and the sleeves. It is a size 24 months — not a men’s XL. I can do this.
I went to three teaching sessions this week at my church. They were awesome. A pastor from Kenya taught on the prophetic ministry in the New Testament church. I have sometimes been rather skeptical of prophecy — but I learned a great deal from these sessions and I believe he is the real deal. I am still trying to process through his teachings.
I have no major plans for the weekend. I have some chores to do. If we don’t get the torrential rain and large hail ( the large hail we had a couple of years ago took out both windshields on my car — no garage) called for tonight and tomorrow, I would like to get out to the farm market and purchase some vegetables and a couple of tomato plants. I would like to go see the new Narnia movie this weekend. I really just want to kind of hang around at home — catch up on my ironing, practice my guitars, read, watch Austin City Limits, do some cooking, knit. Just do whatever I feel like doing.
I have been trying to eat more fish lately. Several days ago, I baked tilapia fillets with a mustard sauce topped with breadcrumbs. Yesterday I baked salmon in a bit of butter and topped the fillets with fresh dill from my herb garden. I made a salad to go with the salmon of couscous, chickpeas, cucumber, tomato, olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper.
