We had a bit of rain overnight and it sounded wonderful! Fletch is in the midst of putting a metal roof on our patio roof and there is something very comforting to me to hear rain hitting a metal roof. It should also make the patio a bit more comfortable in that the metal roof is white (it has been black shingles), so will cut down on the heat we feel.
Things are progressing garden-wise. More color in the coneflowers each day! And the sunflower is opening wider.
We are once again growing eggplants in a pot rather than in the garden. And the first one is growing!!
I love to slice and broil eggplant and then add to pizza. Yum!!
I did try the pickled jalapenos last night and they are very HOT! A recipe I have used in the past calls for simmering the pepper slices in vinegar, sugar & water. The recipe I tried this time eliminated that step - just warming the vinegar, water and sugar and then pouring over the peppers. They are good, but I could not eat many of them.
On the knitting front, I worked last night on the Rabbit Hole Sock putting in a few rows. I'm on the 5th repeat of the pattern and once done that I will knit the heel flap and turn the heel. This one sock has been on the needles for far too long! Of course, there is another one to do when this is finished.
These are a bit fiddly (for me) with doing two cable stitches on each needle, so I left this sock at home and brought the red one (for Fletch) to work on today. I'm about half done the foot and hope to get to the toe decrease at lunch today.
Well, I'm off to make some Turmeric Ginger tea and try to get a little work done. Hope everyone is having a good week!
