We are still having hazy weather after Friday's dust storm.
Yesterday I was sweeping, wiping, cleaning, dusting. When hubby came home from work he wondered why I even bother.
There's no such thing as spring cleaning. It's just a matter of trying to maintain everything as best I can.
Doing that means I then have peace of mind when I spend the rest of the day (and night) crocheting.
I bookmarked a new doily pattern called stacked shells mini-doily but my first attempt turned out to be more like rounds of ruffles.
I looked over the pattern again and realized I had way too many stitches in the 3rd row so made another one. Much better.
And since it was so easy, I made a few more.
Today is the 17th day of Ramadan (the holy month of fasting). For dessert the other night I made a traditional Ramadan sweet called qatayef. Sticky pancakes are normally filled with nuts or cheese then fried and served with a simple syrup. I filled mine with a little bit of thick cream, then dipped them in a mixture of chopped pecans and cinnamon sugar. Nice and fresh, no frying, with a drizzle of honey for serving.
Ramadan is the 9th month in the Islamic lunar calendar.
The August full moon made its appearance the night of August 1st. The Full Sturgeon Moon.
Also known as the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.
I hope all is well in your corner of the world.
Have a peaceful, restful day.
