Auntie & Julia

I spent most of the night thinking about what I would write about my Aunt Louise on her birthday, I would tell you about the mink stole she had, that I use to play dress up with, about how i would play drums on her pots and pans, how I would preform The Sun Will Come Out from Annie to her eager audience over and over again and how she was my best friend.

Every Saturday night we would watch Wild Kingdom, Julia Child & whatever classic movie played after on Channel 2. I wasn't a big fan of Wild Kingdom, but Julia Child, I loved watching her, everything she cooked, my Auntie and I would say you can send me some of that or something to that effect. I credit my Auntie and Julia Child with my love of cooking. My Aunt loved to cook when she was younger and from what I hear she was a fantastic cook.

I remember when Julia Child passed, it was like losing my Auntie all over again, silly, I know, but I had so many memories with my Aunt watching Julia Child, happy memories, Auntie, Julia & myself.

My mother & I recently watched an episode of Julia & Jacques, at the end of the show she signed off, her trademark, and I cried, missing my her.

Bon Appetite.

Gypsy Woman...

My favorite song by Marty.

Today however is a Morphine day, it's hot & sticky, blinking makes you sweat, but the slow sax and Mark's deep voice makes it all better.

That being said, Hell's Kitchen tonight baby!! WOO HOO! I haven't made any progress on either my sleeve or Knotty Gloves, but I am hoping to rectify that tonight and tomorrow.

My buddy Spud, sent me some homemade yummy strawberry jam... makes the best breakfast in the world (toast (or a bagel) with cream cheese and a little jam) even yummier!
Thanks Spud, you do spoil me so! :)

I am being abanded on Friday night...Sweetie is going out with some boys from work for a little going away shin dig as Sweetie is transfering to a different store. I am ok with it, got some frozen Indian take out & Naan bread (thank you Trader Joe's) gonna rent a couple of chick flicks and kick back and knit.

Summer has arrived! (finally) however that means no baking :(
Far to hot in my little tin can, Plus I forgot to pick up some yeast whilst at the grocery store.

I did however do the cuff of my sock and worked a little on my sleeve!! =)
