Reason D'etre

That's right folks, my sarcasm is simply my part in helping carry on the human race. My shoulders sure are tired though.
There's not much going on in the Fickle House other than day to day management of the Husband and the not so wee one.
As I was telling Alison H (Her book's on sale, go check it out), it's a good thing Maya's horns and tail aren't photogenic. She is fastly approaching a stage that ends in "twos." She boldly goes limp in public, hollers and rends her clothes when I do silly things like prevent her from running willy nilly into the street. These are some good times.
In other good news the Husband went stash diving into my yarn
in search of some missing donuts earlier in the week. I don't know what is more diabolical. I'd say more but I'd hate to encourage him. What's next? He'll take up knitting? Not with my stash.
Finally, a book meme.
The brilliant and effervescent Anthony Bourdain says in "A Cook's Tour"

He covered it for a while, allowing it to rise under a cloth, then wrapped it around a filling of meat, onion, garlic, cumin, and herbs. Judging the fire to be ready, he brushed aside th coals, dug into the hot sand beneath, and dropped the fat disk of meat directly into the hole, covering it back up immediately. Time to wait, said Abdul.

And with that I bid you a Husband-free yarn zone. Have a spectacular weekend.

    I found out about the donut search the next day, it took me a while to remove my jaw from the floor. Fortunately he was unimpressed by the size of my yarn collection.
    (Like I’d expose cashmere to cheap tawdry chocolate donuts. I maintain a strict beignet only rule for all yarn in this household.)

    Oh is nothing sacred! The husband moved the bin of yarn last year b/c he was “looking for something”. This is back when the stash was in my closet. He never could tell me what he was looking for.

    Look at that little water baby! What a cutie.
    If the husband goes stash diving and finds donuts and then shares… I dont know if it is bad. But now sharing the donuts… thats another thing.

    I’m sitting here picturing the doughnut search and guffawing.
    Here’s my own post on the subject of toddlers:
    Meantime, can I come over and play grandma and spoil her like crazy and drive you nuts? Pretty please?
