I’m getting ready for the show this coming weekend at Clark County.
I’m pretty excited that the sales are starting again, I’m making myself a little crazy doing random things around here.
One night last week I was feeling particularly wired and I made a crown.
I like wire.
I finished the studio, then decided I would like it better in the front room. So I spent the next couple days, moving the rooms around.
Another good reason to have wheels on all the tables and cabinets…
I made a few necklaces.
I’m a little obsessed with journey these days.
All the reasons you might think.
Am I spending time doing what I want, am I enjoying my journey?
Or am I thinking more about the fact that one of my sons is in India.
He’s working there for a few weeks he seems to be enjoying the journey.
I’m skipping going to bed tonight, because the youngest of the big boys is going on an adventure and I’m taking him to the airport at 3am.
He is taking a trip with a friend to Chile.
He doesn’t know any one there.
Doesn’t have specific plans, doesn’t know when he is coming home, doesn’t know Spanish…
Sounds like fun!
I am just a wee little bit nervous, but I know it is his journey…
I decided to send a little snack for the trip.
It’s been a few years since I made granola, so I looked on the internet and saw what the ingredients were.
I put some of just about everything.
A little butter, a little oil, some brown sugar, a little honey. A bit of vanilla, some almond flavoring and cinnamon.
I boiled that and started putting in nuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, coconut and oats.
I baked it for a couple of hours in a low heat oven.
When I took it cooled just a bit,
I added raisins, cranberries and apricots.
Looks like a good snack for an adventure!
