Blueberry waffles

oh my gosh! i got one of those flip waffle deals from ginny's. i love it. this is the second time i have made waffles in the past week. mark absolutely loves them. the receipe calls for egg whites folded in and i think that adds such a nice lightness. i have never ever been sucessful at making waffles before. i do not know what it is about that thing but it works. i put it oh high and wait until no more steam comes out...forget timing it. mark put my blueberry syrup(was supposed to be jam) on his and i put my newest batch of raspberry jam on mine. i could not eat the second waffle so maybe a treat for later. they say, just heat up the waffle maker, put the waffle back in lining up the square holes, close lid and reheat. i got the receipe online and it is by emeril. way easy. it calls for cake flour but i keep forgetting to buy, regular flour seems to work just fine. didnt get above 55 today. the wind was from the artic i am sure and it rained rained rained. going upstairs to snuggle with my sweetie and watch the tube. happy friday!

wee hours of friday

went to lambeau field last weekend, well actually, green bay. got to see a bunch of players show up for practice or something. boy! they sure don't care about green house effect, all drove big gross suvs or monster trucks. that t-shirt i have on is great. it reads "im not buying fabric, its a bailout for the textile industry". went to the three quilt shops there and it was a hit at everyone of them. i like the silver thimble the best. i think we had our bit of summer, maybe four days of mid 80s and its getting cold again. the first summer i was here was beautiful, oh well, as long as it is not snowing i am happy.
i will be teaching the WOW top mid september and then a gradation dye class first saturday in october up in marquette. i have to get on the ball and send quilt top and class info this weekend. i hate mailing that top plus info to kat on where she can get the 12" templates.
better get to bed, it is pretty late and got lots to do this weekend.
