and now, a few PSAs

announcement

1. if you're in the area, come join me on feb 20 (that's saturday after next, 'yall!) in riverside, ca at knitting with sandra for a twilight party! the lovely gals who run this new local yarn store have lots of fun planned. i have been notified that there will be chocolate involved...

2. go and subscribe to npr/pri's selected shorts podcast. stories by the likes of etgar keret and wallace stegner, read live by professional actors... often followed by author interviews. just delicious. guaranteed to make your 2-hour-rainy-friday-night-commute home more pleasant.

3. speaking of delicious, rustle up the ingredients to make this banana bread.* now. oh, ashley g - you are more than just my favorite contemporary artist. as of this moment, you are my easy-bake muse.

(happy sunday!)


*no baking soda in our house, so i substituted 2 tspns baking powder and skipped the salt. i also added a hearty few dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg, plus the vanilla extract ashley suggests. mmmm...

You have officially arrived at "Celebrity" status!!!! I'm thrilled for you :) Wishing Riverside wasn't quite so far or I'd come and get your autograph ;)

I bought bananas just this morning and thought, gee, I've not had banana bread in a long long time. Your timing was perfect, thanks for the recipe link!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
