Happy Easter, everyone (and soon to be April Fool’s day). I’m enjoying spectacular weather here in Victoria BC – it feels almost like summer!
This time, our Scatterday challenge was S: Female, Ice Cream, Empty and Stash.
A few years ago we were visiting our good friend Jan in Brisbane. Our concert was held in the Mary MacKillop Primary School. I was interested in the name of the school, since my father’s great grandmother was Catharine MacKillop, from the Isle of Iona. They had a little display about her in the school, and I was interested to find out that she was from the same relative area as my gggrandmother. Since them, Mary MacKillop has been Sainted!
It’s an unusual name, and I’m SURE SHE’s a relative!!! (Just haven’t found out how yet…..)
We were on tour in Oklahoma with our RV many years ago. It had snowed overnight. (BRRRR!) In the old days, we had to check our email by going to the camp office and plugging into their telephone. I was doing that when a local came in and started talking about SNOW ICE CREAM!
Being a good Canadian, used to snow, I was amazed that I had never heard of this before. Here’s the recipe:
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk (or cream)
Mix the ingredients together and eat it.
Make sure you use clean snow, not what I’m standing on here.
It’s a beautiful Spring day here in Canada, with the temperatures climbing and the sky clear. Time to do some Spring cleaning! It’s the only way I’m ever going to find an Empty Shelf anywhere in my house!
Okay, I admit it: I keep almost everything. I throw out fabric that won’t cut a 1 1/2″ square, but keep everything else. I even keep Selvedges! Here’ s my bag full of selvedges, and what I do with them (obviously I’m a bit behind in this – time to start crocheting again…..). To keep this extremely S-y, I’ve added three of my favourite Scissors, as well!
Next? We’ll be doing As: House, Bird, Junk and Art.
See you in two weeks!
