I'm Crazy

I'm feeling much better today, even though I had a very rough night.  The pain from these spider bites is pretty bad.  Today it is much reduced, so the antibiotics are starting to work.  Happy, happy.
So, First off, below is a picture of the first batch of mushroom dying I did.  Pretty funny that the fiber has a slight green tint to it, when the mushrooms were orange.


The fiber is sitting on my heat register, and there are my dying gloves next to it.  Below are the mushrooms I used to obtain this less than exciting color.


And, here is my latest skein of yarn! 


Then on to the domestic side.  This is why I call myself crazy.  I was feeling sooooo bad yesterday, but all of my carrots were cut and just waiting to be canned, so I HAD to finish the job.
They are pickled with dill, garlic, and some dried peppers.  I love the way they kept their colors.  Calico Carrots, hehehe.


These are some pickles I did several weeks ago.  My son tells me at the top of the Ritz in San Francisco, these are served in Martinis and called "Palm Olives".

They are actually green cherry tomatoes, the very last on my vines before it froze.  They are supposedly a very nice cocktail treat, so I am looking forward to serving them and trying them out myself.  I promised my son the big jar for Christmas, since he liked them so much at the Ritz.  He had his martini there the night he and his wife got engaged.

I love how your skein of yarn has all the colors of your jars of pickled goodies! Darn spiders! They do the same thing to me, too.
