Food porn and freeway flowers

I just finished reading both of Ruth Reichl's books, Tender at the Bone
Comfort Me with Apples. They were funny and delicious and I couldn't put either of them down. Great reading for foodies, and an entertaining peek into the life of a free spirit.

We've gotten a bit of a break from house building due to having fired the world's stupidest, loser low-life of a contractor. (Finally, and good freaking riddance!!) Anyway, although I'd much rather be forging ahead at full speed, I'm happy for a few days of recharge and I'm acutally thinking about getting out some knitting if you can believe that. It will most likely be either the mate to the Color on Color mitten (of which I have only the cuff started), or the Trekking socks, since both are small and the idea of having a lapful of wool sweater when it's 90 degrees outside is less than appealing.

Speaking of downtime...
Ms. Knit-Whit and I had a little lunchie the other day, and here's one of her fab pics:

Then on the way home I spotted some of those giagantic dandelion looking things that had gone to seed and said how I had seen some while I was out on a walk the other day with boy and wished she was there because she always has her camera and they would make excellent photographic subject matter. So, being the crafty chick that she is, Ms. Knit-Whit went back later, parked her car next to the freeway overpass where they were growing, risked life and limb crossing a busy street, and snapped some fab shots...

neato, eh? She always manages to acutally DO stuff that I'm only able to think about and then not get around to.
Thanks friend!
