TGIF

Friday miscellany...a real surprise--these little violets I bought late last winter are blooming again. I know that's what they're supposed to do, but I usually can't keep houseplants alive long enough to rebloom. The remaining three are almost ready to bloom.
A friend came over after work yesterday afternoon for a little 'crafting'. Little is the key word here. We had a salad dinner--fruity chicken salad, pasta salad, and cornbread salad. I've been trying to replicate the cornbread salad from one of my favorite lunch spots--Coffee Cottage & Cafe. I may break down and ask (beg) for her ingredient list.

I have two knitting projects going on now; a huge shawl-like wrap that I've been working on for a few years and I probably only have two or three hours of knitting left to do on it, but it's heavy and kind of cumbersome to work with. So what do I do...

I start another little dishcloth. I love doing these...no need to pay attention to what I'm doing, so I can talk, watch TV, almost anything. So it was mostly sitting--a little knitting.

Cornbread salad. Sounds interesting. I hope you will share if you get the recipe.

The salads sound wonderfully yummy. I love to make the dish cloth's they are the best ever. I don't use any thing else. I hope you get your shawl done. Looks like it will be very warm and pretty.

Love the colors in the last piece. If you get ahold of that recipe, do share!

My mother's violets bloom all the time. They are in a very sunny room. Is that where yours are?
