October Daily 19:

 




A busy day. I was called in to teach three Home Ec classes today and tomorrow. I've stayed on the Teacher on Call list, but am being very selective about when I teach. After arriving home, I made a cup of tea and put my feet up for a few minutes, then headed out to the garden as the sun slipped lower and lower in the sky. Such beautiful golden light. Birds alighted in various bushes - Sparrows and...


House Finches, as well as Dark-eyed Juncos. A Northern Flicker zipped across the garden into a pine tree where I couldn't see him. 



I admired the way this clematis flower transforms into a soft and fluffy tangled nest. Looks like someone had a very bad hair day. 


Two classes prepared a Thai Red Curry Coconut Soup and I was inspired to have the very same thing for our dinner. It's easy to put together, and very flexible with the ingredients. Clicking the link will take you to the recipe on my other blog. 


Our golden October days may be ending this weekend as much-needed rain is in the forecast. How much we actually receive is the big question on everyone's mind. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments on the bear videos in my previous post. It truly was an unforgettable experience to witness this in real life.

  4. Thank you for the flowers, birds and the delicious soup (which almost leaps off the page). We missed our favorite Thai restaurants during the Covid months and collected several good recipes so we could enjoy the cuisine at home. Now it's part of our rotation. This was a great addition and I appreciated your explanation of why it works!

  6. You are a busy woman! I couldn't teach again. My nerves are fried. I taught gr. 7/8 LA and Math in a home ec room. We used to bake for fun.

  9. Your Red Curry Noodle Soup looks good. Today I made your recipe for the Apple cake for the second time. My family loves it. I decreased the sugar to 1 1/4 cups but then sprinkled brown sugar on the top. Thanks for great recipes.
