Kitchen table

So I made a table.

We really needed a kitchen table, in addition to other things in there that will be coming later, and Spouse and I disagreed on they style. I wanted a formica '50s jobbie like I used to have years ago and he preferred a farmhouse style. The ones I like, however, are rather expensive. So I went with farmhouse and decided to make it myself.

I found the Ana White site, which has TONS of plans of every level. The Narrow Farmhouse Table was the style I was looking for, but not the size. Fortunately the plans are very clear and I was able to alter it to make the table the size I needed.

We have found that in the summer we consume less milk, but have not actually cut back on our milk order.

Gather random herbs from the garden (I used oregano, basil and sage)Chop said herbsPut milk and herbs into a pot and bring to a boil.Add 1 cup buttermilk (I make it from powder)Add 1/4 cup vinegar - the curds will separate almost instantly.Drain curds in cheesecloth. Add some salt

Bad me! Not enough Posting!

So Katell is on spring break and stopped by the office today. It was good to see her, but she berated me (okay, in a nice way) about not updating.

So, what's been new with me? (like you care)
Got an upgrade and raise at work. Now I can work long hours without over-time pay! Oh Boy!
The Doc is coming to visit in April. With luck, I'll get most of that week off from work too.
The Om Coll's Kabaretts at the Zeitgeist are going well. The third one of this year will be April 9 and should be a fabulous show. I'll post the press release and poster when it's finished.
My Om Coll persona now has her own web presence too. It kind sucks right now, but I've not been working to hard on it lately. And I've been doing most of it in a text editor.
