Gazpacho Anyone?

Ok I have to say it. My DH is a great Chef and he makes the best Gazpacho in the world. Here is the recipe.
5 celery stalks, 5 garlic cloves, 2 medium onions, 3 red peppers, 3 cucumbers half peeled and seeded, 8 jalapenos, Juice of 2 limes, 2 tbls olive oil, 2 tbls horseradish, 1 tbls red wine vinegar, 92 oz of V8, 46 oz of Tomato Juice.
In a food processor blend garlic , horseradish, vinegar , olive oil and lime juice. Put aside.
Grate all the vegetables one by one separately. Now mix everything together along with V8 and tomato juice. Serve over toasted sour dough bread. Voila! Bon apetit !
I feel hungry now.
I will add a picture later. If you have any question please ask.

New bags

I just cannot tell you how much I love crochet. Instead of working on my line of felted shawls I decide to do some bags , using some Brazilian cotton yarns I had sitting on a shelf. These bags need to have lining which will be in cotton prints, also I will add snap closure and pocket... I just could not resist showing them right away.

Bad show

Ok, spring shows are getting me tired. The Pentecostal church show in Hoboken was not worth it. It was profitable but not close to how I usually make in the area. It is amazing , I was only two blocks away from the spot where I am usually happy at and I am surprised at how bad it actually was.
Oh, well. Let me turn this page.

Back of the house in Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro

Sugar Loaf (center), Rio de Janeiro

There are 23 days left until we fly to Rio de Janeiro. I miss my house in Cabo Frio so much. In the picture above, I am showing where I love to lay down at the end of the day and watch all the stars come up. It is the most amazing sky, filled with little diamonds twinkling.
Now, stop dreaming and back to work I have to finish some bags and buy more silk for scarves.

In the Clouds

My beautiful brilliant daughter. This week was the award ceremony at her school. She was awarded in Science, Math, French and Latin. I was in the clouds of happiness seeing her going up the stage so many times!! I thank God everyday for her being a great kid.
Today I was supposed be in a show in NJ, but because of the weather I am not going. I will not take a chance to see all my silk scarves and bags ruined :(
I will be in Hoboken tomorrow. I will comment about later. Great weekend everyone
