(no subject)

It's looking to shape up to be a busy week, at least the first half of it, and that's likely to spill over into the whole week.

Today, I need to do laundry, clean out catya's car for moving stuff tomorrow, find all the pieces of my bed and generally gather up the stuff I have scattered about here at Homeport.

Tomorrow, Shayde and I will move my bed and stuff from here, and, I hope, do a small load of "urgent" stuff from my uncle's basement (like, say, sheets and towels). Also, I'll get a haircut in the middle of the day! If all goes as planned, I'll spent Tuesday night in The New Place!

Wednesday, I'll probably get more stuff from Doug's basement. The nice thing about this setup is that there's no real urgency to getting EVERYTHING moved right away, so I can do it in manageable bits, which should help me with the process of not only unpacking but also of determining what things will go in the big "yard sale" pile that I'm hoping to create (living out of a suitcase for almost a year makes me feel like I can probably stand to get rid of loads of my stuff).

Then Thursday and Friday are unplanned, and Saturday, I'm going to Pride! Anyone else want to join me for that?

Sweet Scones

This recipe is from razil's friend, whose name I'm forgetting at the moment, who gave it to me when we were driving from Portland to Houston in March. I don't feel like keeping track of the scrap paper it's on, so...

2 c. flour
2 t baking powder
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 c butter
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c cream (milk ok)

Preheat oven 425. Mix flour, b pow, sugar and salt in large bowl. Work in butter with fingers until mixture is crumbly. Add eggs and cream and stir until blended. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead for about a minute. Pat into 3/4" mound and cut into wedges. Bake for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them.
