It was parents' night at the high school girls' swim meet last night. Each girl gave her parents a rose.
Competitive swim season is short and brutal here. This week alone there are three meets and only one of those at home. On morning practice days, my daughter is out of the house at 5:15 a.m. If there's a meet, she's home around 9 p.m. Fortunately, the season goes only from September to early November.
It means we fix a lot of meals that can be reheated to accomodate wacky schedules. Yesterday, Yesterday was French Dip:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 green pepper, sliced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 beef bouillon cube
1 beef brisket.
Cook it all day in the crockpot and serve sliced on crusty rolls with a cup of the cooking juices to dip the sandwich.
Look what came in the mail today from Fiddlesticks Knitting.
The pattern and Zephyr wool-silk, I was expecting. The nice presentation in the gold with ribbon and the gift packages of Eucalan Woolwash are a nice and very welcome surprise.
