Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Miso in love with Miso.
ok that was bad. But I really do love Miso and I could eat it almost every day. I have a really super quick recipe.
3 tsp Barley miso (or some other Miso if you want it to be gluten free)
3 cups water
1/2 cup sliced onion
1/3 package of cubed tofu
1-2 good handfulls of sliced mushrooms.
I just throw it all into a sauce pot without the Miso. Cook it up until everything is soft. Take soem of the hot water and mix it into the MISO paste to dissolve then add that into the pot. It's ready then. Thank you Faith for reminding me not to boil my Miso Easy. It also leaves a lot of room for changes. You can have it plain, without any of the "stuff" in it - just Miso and water. You can replace the tofu with chicken. Baby Boogie loves the tofu from the Miso soup, the flavor is really good even all by itself.
The FloorDad is so fast that the floor was done in about 4-5 hours. Incredible. What's even more incredible is that he offered (or rather my Mom offered for my Dad) to paint our walls for us. Since construction is his occupation, and he's really really good at what he does, I'm thrilled that he'll be painting my walls. I guarantee he'll do a better job. I'm not just saying this because he's my Dad and I love him, it's true. He works with a crew that is in high demand. They're usually booking the big jobs 6 months or more in advance and then fitting the small jobs (like painting someones living room) when they can.
This means things stay in boxes a little while longer, but it will be worth it in the long run. I promise to take some good pictures once it's all done. We haven't picked the wall color but right now we're leaning towards something called red clay or a grey mauve-ish color. But for right now, we're dancing happy that we have a new floor.
I'm busting butt to get a few designs done. Somethings for the shop, something for Magknits, and something for each of my girlies. I swear I have way too many designs running around my head and written on paper stuffed into my notebook. I must write out the patterns for 3 times as many items as I actually get to knit. One of these days I'll be able to sit on my butt and knit all day.
Until that day I'll plug along stitch by stitch...
